Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation

Technological advances in the world with each passing year show themselves in every aspect of our lives. One of them is the FUE hair transplantation technique (Follicular Unit Extraction), which is one of the most important methods in facilitating hair transplantation. This technique consists of four stages. It consists of cutting the hair, collecting the hair follicles, opening the channels and transplanting the roots called grafts into the opened channels.
Sapphire-tipped special pens have been developed, which is one of the stages of the FUE technique, which is a method that allows to minimize tissue deformation and to open channels with maximum frequency. This transplantation model, called Sapphire FUE, is a FUE operation using pens with tips made of real sapphire.

During hair transplantation, a cutting tool called slit is used while the canal is opened. However, since tissue damage is high in transplantation with these steel slits, the healing times are longer. With sapphire tipped pens, it is possible to make a dense and natural planting due to the fact that dense channels can be opened at the micro level. Since the channels are opened at a micro level, there is a much faster healing process compared to other hair transplantation techniques. After transplantation, crusting is minimal and this result increases comfort of the patient.

Sapphire Fue hair transplantation varies according to the number of grafts taken in approximately 6 – 8 hours.

Advantages of FUE Hair Transplantation with Sapphire Tip over Metal Slite:

FUE with sapphire tip can be transplanted more densely than metal slit method, which makes it possible to be applied to patients with hair loss at more advanced stages.

By helping the grafts to be planted more densely, it enables a more natural appearance with hair density.

What are the Differences Between FUE and DHI Methods in Hair Transplantation?

There are differences between FUE and DHI as the procedure applied. Other than that, you can find the differences in the list below.

1. The main difference between the FUE technique and the DHI method is the difference in application methods.

2. 3000-7000 grafts can be transplanted in a single session in the FUE technique, and 4000 grafts in a single session in the DHI technique.

3. In the DHI technique, the hair follicles are transplanted within 1-2 minutes after they are taken from the donor area, so it is not possible to wait outside the body. This minimizes the possibility of damage to the hair follicles.

4. Recovery in the DHI technique is faster and the recovery time is shorter than the FUE technique, and there is almost no bleeding.

5. The FUE technique is ideal for planting in a larger area and DHI is the ideal method for planting more densely.

6. In the DHI technique, 100 follicles can be transplanted in 1 square centimeter area, while 60 roots can be planted in the FUE technique.

7. In the DHI technique, it is possible to transplant between the hair more easily in the areas where the hair is not completely shed, but this cannot be done in FUE.

8. While shaving the hair is neccessary in the FUE technique, it is sufficient to shorten the hair in the donor area with the appropriate model in the DHI technique.

9. The cost of the equipment used in the DHI method is more expensive and the team performing this method is more crowded; therefore the total cost is a little higher. FUE method on the other hand, can be realized at a more affordable cost.

10. While the FUE technique takes 6-8 hours, the DHI method requires a little longer.
