Micro Sapphire DHI is the world’s leading hair transplant technique. SteraClinic and hair transplant specialist are Turkey’s leading practitioners.
Several types of hair transplant surgeries have been developed to help regrow lost hair. Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE) are the two most common techniques.
During FUT, a surgeon cuts a strip of hair from the back of your scalp and extracts individual hair follicles. During FUE, a surgeon removes follicles directly from your scalp. In both surgeries, the follicles are implanted into balding parts of your scalp.
Direct hair implantation (DHI) is a modification of the FUE technique created by the company DHI Stera Clinic.
In FUE, a surgeon manually cuts channels in your scalp before implanting hair follicles. During DHI, they use a specialized pen-shaped tool that can do both at the same time.
Let’s break down everything you need to know about DHI surgery. We’ll also compare it to FUT and FUE to help you decide which may be best for you.
Similar to traditional FUE Sapphire hair transplants, hair follicles are harvested from the donor area one by one using advanced micromotors. Different types of punches are used for different hair types such as European, Asian and African-American.
The sapphire microblade opens up hair canals. The cuts are more accurate and precise than with traditional steel tools. The risk of tissue damage and trauma is minimised and the healing process is faster.
The grafts are implanted into the recipient area. The advanced DHI implanter pen provides full protection for the delicate hair grafts.
