MANSUR, Cristina et al. Improvements in CO2 laser hair transplantation : presentation of three clinical cases. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2004, vol.79, n.2, pp. 199-204. ISSN 1806-4841. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962004000200008.
The authors present three hair transplantation cases in which the receptor incisions were made in a variety of ways: CO2 laser vaporization orifices, in addition to which a lateral cold incision was performed. This lateral incision makes it easier to introduce micrografts by allowing air to be released and improves the fixation of the grafts by giving some elasticity to the orifice. The patients were previously beta blocked to prevent the beta-adrenergic action of epinefrin.
