Sapphire FUE Technique

Hair loss is a common concern for many individuals, impacting self-confidence and overall well-being.

What is the Sapphire FUE Technique?

Sapphire FUE is a cutting-edge hair transplant technique that combines the precision of traditional FUE with the use of sapphire blades for graft extraction. The procedure involves the following steps:
Donor Hair Extraction: In the FUE method, hair follicles are carefully extracted from the donor area one by one with micro tips in sizes varying between 0.7 and 1.0 mm under local anesthesia, depending on the hair length and follicle number. The high standards followed in the hair follicle extraction minimize the damage to the donor area and increase the patient comfort during the process.

Recipient Site Creation: Channels opened with sapphire tips are smaller and thus heal a lot faster. With sapphire tips, or classic metal slits, the direction of the hairs to be transplanted is determined during the channel opening step. In this step, sensitivity about the angle of the channels to be opened in the skin is one of the most important factors to get a natural outcome in the transplanted area.
A number of tips should be enough for each patient depending on the width thickness of the hair follicles. Still, it is very important that each tip is only used for one patient alone.

Graft Implantation: The extracted hair follicles are implanted into the recipient sites, ensuring that they grow naturally and seamlessly with the existing hair.
In the implantation step, the hairs are placed in the correctly directed channels with a 40-45 degree angle.

Advantages of Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant

Natural-Looking Results: The use of sapphire blades in the extraction and implantation process enables the surgeon to create fine, precise incisions. This results in a more natural and aesthetically pleasing hairline.
Minimize Scarring: Sapphire FUE minimizes scarring in both the donor and recipient areas. The tiny incisions heal quickly and leave minimal visible marks, ensuring a discrete outcome.
Comfortable Procedure: Patients often report less discomfort during and after the Sapphire FUE procedure due to the smaller incisions and reduced trauma to the scalp.
Quick Recovery: The minimally invasive nature of Sapphire FUE allows for a faster recovery compared to traditional hair transplant methods. Patients can return to their daily activities sooner.
Among the hair transplant methods, Sapphire FUE hair transplant has stood out in recent years. The main factor that distinguishes this method from the FUE method is that the channels opened during implantation are opened with a special-tipped glass pen, which is obtained from sapphire mineral instead of metal-tipped scalpel and slits.
Operations with special sapphire-tipped pens provide great advantages in terms of naturalness and healing time of the transplanted hair. Channel opening process which one of the most critical processes in hair transplant, and the implant of grafts into the opened channels thus become more risk-free and healthier and this makes FUE Sapphire
As Hy Hair Istanbul, we recommend the Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant method, which shortens the patient’s healing process and also provides more natural results.
