Micro FUE Sapphire Technique

Fue Sapphire Hair Transplant.

FUE hair transplant with sapphire scalpels is one of the most used methods to carry out hair transplantation.

The characteristic that distinguishes the FUE Sapphire hair transplant from the classic FUE hair transplant is that the operation is performed with blades made of a precious stone called sapphire. The use of a sapphire tip instead of the classic surgical steel means that opening microchannels in the area where the hair follicles will be transplanted accelerates the healing process of the recipient area.

Since the open micro channels are smaller and more accurate, tissue healing after the operation is faster than with surgical steel blades.

Phases in fue zafiro hair transplantation:

The hair follicles are extracted from the donor area one by one using a micromotor whose diameter is variable, being able to be 0.6, 0.7 or up to 0.8 mm under local anesthesia. After the extraction of the follicles, the micro channels are opened with the sapphire scalpels. The extracted follicles are grafted one by one into these micro channels with the help of tweezers specially designed for this purpose. The most critical point of the last stage is to place the follicles one by one at angles of 45/60 degrees and in the right directions.

Advantages of the FUE Sapphire:

The FUE technique, performed with sapphire blades, offers the opportunity to implant in a single session up to five thousand five hundred follicular, something especially interesting for patients with widespread alopecia

Transplanted grafts offer over the months a very natural looking result. Since the canal is opened by injecting less subcutaneous fluid than with classic acerol blades, the amount of edema after the operation is reduced. The smooth surface of the sapphire tip, which has antibacterial properties, creates much less vibration in the skin, thanks to its sharpness and durability. This minimizes tissue damage which makes skin recovery faster.

DHI Hair Transplant

DHI hair transplantation is a variant of classic FUE hair transplantation. The procedure follows a procedure similar to the FUE Sapphire hair transplant technique, with the difference that in this method no previous openings of micro channels are made but the implantation of the extracted follicles is performed with a medical instrument called implanters or CHOI pen.

The hair follicles extracted from the donor area are transplanted to the most unpopulated areas with these devices without the need to use traditional blades. This device has a very thin, cylindrical and sharp tip, which allows, among other things, that follicles can be implanted in areas where the patient still retains hair and that the recovery of the skin after the intervention is faster and more comfortable.


Steps in DHI Hair Transplantation (No Total Shaving):

The operation is performed under local anesthesia. With sedation that is applied previously and always under the supervision of our anesthesiologist, even the discomfort of the application of local anesthesia is minimized.

As with the traditional method, the follicles will be extracted from one by one of the available donor areas, usually the occipital and parietal area of the head, and can also be extracted if necessary from the lower part of the chin, or from the interpectoral area.

The hair follicles are placed one by one at the end of each implanter, and in this way the implantation of the units will be facilitated with the correct angle and direction. The number of implanters used during the intervention will depend on the total number of follicles to be extracted, although the average is usually around 15/16 devices.

Advantages of the DHI technique:

Since blades are not used, the risk of bleeding is minimized and allows new follicles to be grafted between the patient’s native hair, a faster recovery is observed after the operation since tissue damage is lower compared to other methods. This method makes it possible to perform the intervention without the need to completely shave the receiving area.

Hair Transplant for Women

Female hair transplantation is a microsurgical procedure that offers a permanent solution to women who have experienced hair loss. The hair transplant operation is performed by taking healthy follicles from the donor area (usually from the back of the head) and transplanting them into the areas where baldness is developing. Since the hair extracted from the donor area is resistant to hair loss, these hairs grow back along with the newly transplanted hair and a natural look is obtained.

During hair transplantation, it could be aesthetically disturbing to have to completely shave your hair in the case of women. The technique of unshaven hair transplantation avoids this fact by opening a small window on the back of the head shaving in a way that is not visible being covered by the mane.

Depending on the number of follicles needed to repopulate the entire unpopulated area, one method or another may be used and it will be the doctor who determines it by seeing the images when the first oline assessment is requested, and again once the patient is in Istanbul during the performance that will take place prior to the intervention.

Stages in Hair Transplantation for Women:

In the case where we are not going to completely shave the head, a small area on the back of the head will be shaved in the occipital area. After the hair is released, this area will not be visible and there will be no scar indicating that the hair transplant operation was performed.

After applying local anesthesia to the patient, the follicles will be extracted one by one with a micromotor with a variable diameter of 0.6 or 0.8 mm in diameter.

Finally, and in the event that the operation is performed with the DHI method, the follicles will be implanted one by one with the help of devices called implanters in the depopulated area. In the case of using sapphire blades, the microchannels will be opened one by one where the previously extracted follicles will be implanted, taking into account the direction and angle of hair growth.

Beard Transplant

Beard transplantation is performed by removing hair follicles from the back of the head, the occipital area, under the chin or jowl area (if the patient has them) and implanting them in the desired areas of the face. Beard transplantation is a permanent solution for those patients with a low density or irregular beard and with long-term results if performed correctly.

The DHI method is used for beard transplantation using a medical device called an implanter, designed to implant the follicles into the beard area. The reason we use the DHI method is that it will allow a faster recovery of the skin, and will allow to achieve a higher density.

Depending on the amount of hair required to repopulate the area, the operation can last from 2 to 4 hours. Unlike in traditional hair transplantation, a patient can expect an already very significant and evident growth in just 6 months. Hair growth usually begins around two/three months. In less than 10 months, patients will see the results of the beard transplant.

The most important feature of the implanter is the possibility of more effectively controlling the angle of implantation of the follicles. Normally, the hair is implanted at 46-60 degrees. However, the hair around the beard should be inserted between 10 and 20 degrees. With implanters, we can work at smaller angles, making the end result much more natural.
