Dr. Stern uses the “SAFE SYSTEM”
The Harris SAFE System is a new, proprietary treatment methodology that improves on the existing methodology for FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). It was created and patented by Dr. James Harris of Greenwood Village Colorado (just outside of Denver). Dr. Stern is currently the only surgeon in the Pacific Northwest offering this revolutionary technology to patients.
Benefits of the SAFE System
• Minimally invasive
• Virtually pain free
• No visible scarring
• Reduces healing time
• Virtually 100% of patients are candidates
• Less follicle damage
Why it works
The SAFE System allows Dr. Stern to perform precise follicular extraction without unnecessary follicular damage and the resulting loss that is associated with traditional FUE. It significantly increases the number of grafts being transplanted from approximately 300-400 per day to potentially over a thousand grafts in a single day.
For patients who lack any available hair on their scalp, the SAFE System allows Dr. Stern to harvest hairs from other body areas such as the chest, back or abdomen.
Because the quality of body hair is not as suited for transplant as scalp hair, its use is only recommended as a last resort. Dr. Stern will discuss the appropriate use of body hair with you during the consultation.
The SAFE System also enables Dr. Stern to isolate, excise and remove single follicular units with one to five hairs. Using a small, self-contained device called the Harris SAFE Scribe, Dr. Stern achieves precise follicular extraction without unnecessary dissection resulting in trauma to the hair follicles.
Those who benefit
Virtually 100% of candidates, including African Americans and patients with gray hair.
