After that surgeon inserts the needle at an accurate angle of 40-45 degrees into the scalp and implants the follicles one by one. The same process is repeated over and over until every single follicles implanted. During the procedure we are using 2-6 Choi implanter pens concurrently to optimize the implantation time.
