DHI stands for “Direct Hair Implantation”. In DHI hair transplant method, grafts are collected with the medical pen called Choi, which should be used only by specialists. After that, the hair obtained with this pen is placed directly on the skin without opening incision or channel. In the hair transplant methods known, these two procedures are performed on separate stages. However, thanks to the special pen used, the operation is reduced to one stage. Thus, comfort and convenience is provided to the patient.
That is to say, while FUE hair transplant technique has three stages, DHI hair transplant method has two stages. The aim of the application is to increase the quality of hair transplantation, to provide a dense image, to ensure that the person who is undergoing hair transplantation without shortening the existing hair image is able to return to his daily life quickly.
What are the stages of DHI hair transplant?
Hair follicles are removed from the donor area with local anesthesia and hair follicles are collected with special pen. Then, the hair follicles are placed on the scalp by means of this special device.
Hair follicles are placed on the scalp through a special Choi pen. This pen has a very thin, pointed end that can be placed in the hair follicle due to its special structure. This fine-tip medical pencil, immersed in the scalp at a suitable angle, is placed in the scalp with the hair follicle when pressed in the special area behind it.
This method, which is applied without damaging healthy tissues, is advantageous in terms of allowing more frequent transplanting.
Generally, this method is preferred because the follicles are placed immediately without waiting after the removal. Thus, the retention rate and the chances of the grafts to stay healthy increases. Although it is a technique that has existed since then, it has become popular recently.
It is very important that the procedure taking about 10-12 hours is done by experienced people. As with robotic and FUE hair transplant method, the first day after the procedure, patient is checked. The second day washing begins and lasts for eight days.
