What is FUE Sapphire Hair Transplant?

FUE Sapphire Hair Transplant

FUE Sapphire hair transplant is one of the most popular hair transplant techniques. In this method, special diamond edged tips are used in implanting process. Channels that will hold the extracted hair grafts are opened with these diamond edged tips.

This procedure consists of two parts as in all other hair transplant method. After planning the hair implanting process, hair transplant operation starts. In the first section, hair follicles are extracted from the back of the head. Hair extraction is completed with FUE hair extraction technique. After that, second stage of the operation begins.

How Is FUE Sapphire Hair Transplant Applied?

In the second stage of the operation, channels are opened on the bald areas. When opening these channels, diamond edged tips ensure more precise application. Channels can be opened close to each other. Also, channels have smoother edges due to clean cuts made by those diamond tips.

All this procedure is applied under local anaesthesia. Therefore, patients do not feel pain during hair extraction and hair implant process. After channels are opened, collected hair grafts are carefully implanted in these channels.

Benefits of FUE Sapphire Hair Transplant

Compared to other methods, Sapphire hair transplant offers more precise hair implanting process. Diamond edged tips decreases damage during channel opening process. Also, diamond edges enables smaller channels to be opened. This way, crusting after the operation can be decreased significantly. Lower amount of crusting means faster recovery and going back to daily life without feeling uncomfortable about crusts.

Major advantage of this hair transplant technique is thicker and denser hair transplant. Diamond edges offer a chance to open more channels. This way more hair grafts can be transplanted. Also, since the channels are smaller, scalp can heal faster.
