What is Sapphire FUE?
Sapphire FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Technique opens the microchannels where the grafts (hair follicles) will be placed are opened not by metal tips as in the Slit Technique, but by tips made of sapphire which is a highly precious diamond.
Sapphire tips allow us to open channels that are smoother and smaller. This prevents crusting and ensures that there is no visible trace after the application.
Grafts in Sapphire FUE Technique are taken by using FUE Technique as in other transplantation techniques.
How is Sapphire FUE Technique Applied?
Planning and Consultation
Preparation and Local Anesthesia
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.
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.
At this stage where the Sapphire FUE Technique is used and shows its difference, we open micro channels with sapphire tips in the direction of the natural hair to the area where the grafts will be transplanted. Since you are under local anesthesia, you do not feel anything during this process. It takes approximately 45-60 minutes depending on the number of grafts planted. A lunch break can be given before or after this procedure. You can also go to the toilet if you need to.
At this stage, we transfer the grafts we take to the determined area with the most appropriate density and angle. 2 or 3 personnel work at the same time in the hair transplantation process. Fast completion of the procedure is important for the health of the grafts. This process may take 3 hours for an average of 4000 graft hair follicles. You are most likely to sleep at this stage.
One or two days after the surgery, the first hair wash is done in our clinic by a specialist team. We inform you about how to wash your hair during the washing process. First, we spray the foamy spray on the planting area and wait for 15-20 minutes. Then we clean the foam from our hair with non-pressure water. You need to wash the donor area very well. Otherwise, scarb may occur in the area where it is taken. We don’t want this to happen.
In this process, we recommend that you take vitamin supplements as well as ozone oil treatment. In this process, we recommend using ozonated oil treatment and vitamin supplement products. We stay in touch with our guests for 12-18 months after hair transplantation and provide the necessary support after all stages.
And The Result
Now it’s time for results. Your transplanted hair will continue to grow from the 3rd to the 12th month and you will get the final result at the end of the 12th month. Your stay in contact with us during this 9-month period will affect the outcome. Your representative will ask you for photos of your hair on a monthly basis. The clearer and more timely you send the photos, the more timely we will intervene and the better the result will be.
