DHI hair transplant is one of the hair implanting techniques. This method is combined with FUE hair extraction technique. So, this technique is also known a DHI FUE hair transplant. In most cases, hair implant method selection determines the name of the hair transplant process.
In this method, extracted hair grafts are implanted with a special pen called implanted pen. This implanter pen has cylindrical and sharp tip. This tip enables precise hair implant during the operation.
What Is DHI Hair Transplant?
When DHI hair transplant technique is applied, there is no need to open channels. Hair is directly implanted to recipient area. Therefore, this procedure is also known as direct hair implantation. Since there is no need for channels, healing and recovery is faster than other methods.
How Hair Is Collected?
Hair collection is conducted by FUE – follicular unit extraction method. Each hair graft is collected from the back of the head separately. It is also possible to extract hair from other areas of the body. Hair can be extracted from chest or face area when needed. But generally extraction from back of the head is preferred since hair follicles in this region are the strongest.
Advantages of DHI Method
Main advantage of this method is that there is no need to open channels. Instead of channels, implanter pen is used for implanting all the collected grafts. Additionally, this technique enables thicker implant options since implant is direct.
Another advantage is that there is no need to shave the hair. Hair on both donor and recipient areas can be kept during the operation. For this reason, DHI technique is a good option for partial hair loss. Recovery is shorter compared to other hair transplant methods. Since it is possible to implant the hair with desired angle and direction, results are more natural and satisfactory. You should book an appointment with the doctor to see if you are a good candidate for DHI hair transplant.
