What is DHI Hair Transplant?
DHI Hair Transplant Technique transplants grafts (hair follicles) by implanter pen on the area of loss after extraction. Grafts are placed in the special implanter pen that has a very fine, cylindrical and sharp tip, and transplantation process is performed in a single step thanks to pushing properties of the pen. Therefore, there is no need to open channels on the transplantation area unlike other techniques. Grafts in DHI Technique are taken by using FUE Technique as in other transplantation techniques.
The area of application is sterilized and local anesthesia is applied to prevent you from feeling any pain. Local anesthesia is performed by injecting the active substance to the relevant areas by an ultra-fine tip needle. For those who are afraid of needle, there is a very easy and painless alternative. It ensures that the active substance penetrates the skin painlessly thanks to a pressured spraying process, we apply the needle required for anesthesia after that area becomes numb. In this way, you don’t feel any pain.
3. Extraction of Grafts
We usually exact the grafts from the area where the hair is most abundant and strong, that is the back of neck, between two ears. You don’t feel anything because this area is completely numb. If we need more grafts, we can extract grafts from the chest or from under the chin (applicable for men). The FUE Technique where the grafts are extracted one by one provides us with this possibility in a highly aesthetic way.
4. Transplantation Application
After we extract the grafts, we place them into the implanter pen one by one and transplant them with the most suitable density and angle over the designated area. Transplantation application can be performed without requiring to open channels thanks to pushing properties of the implanter pen that has a very fine, cylindrical and sharp tip. Since you are under local anesthesia, you don’t feel anything during this process.
5. Post-application Process
One or two days after operation, first washing process is conducted in our clinic by a team of experts. During the washing process, we inform you about how to wash your hair. We conduct exuviating wash 10 days after the application. In this process, we recommend you to take vitamin supplements as well as ozone oil treatment. We keep in touch with our guests for 12 to 18 months after the application and provide the required support by monitoring all stages.

ABOUT DHI HAIR TRANSPLANT
Is DHI better than FUE?
The choice between FUE or DHI procedure depends on the patient’s hair loss classification, the size of the thinning area and quantity of available donor hair.
