James A. Harris, MD, and the Hair Sciences Center of Colorado, Denver, introduce the Powered SAFE Scribe, the latest addition to the integrated SAFE System developed by Harris for application in follicular unit extraction (FUE) surgery. Because it is powered, not manual, the SAFE Scribe can reduce the surgical time by half and increase the number of extractions per hour from 200 or 300 to 500 to 700. Other benefits include virtually no pain, no visibile scarring, less follicle damage, and potentially reduced surgery costs due to the SAFE Scribe’s faster speed, which may enable more patients to undergo the FUE procedure.
