What is Sapphire FUE hair transplant
The most widely used hair transplantation technique in the world is FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). This technique consists of the stages of collecting the hair follicles, opening the channels and planting the follicles called grafts into the opened channels. But, what makes sapphire fue hair transplant different from normal fue?
During the opening of the channel, which is a phase of FUE technique, special items with sapphire tips have been developed as a method that allows to minimize tissue deformation and to open the channel with maximum frequency. This transplantation model, called Sapphire FUE, is a FUE operation using pens made from real sapphire.
During hair transplantation, surgeons widely use a cutting tool called slit when opening the channel. However, since the tissue damage is high in the transplantation with these steel slits, the recovery times are relatively long. However, with sapphire tip pens, it is possible to make a frequent and natural planting because of the frequent channel opening at the micro level. Since the channels are opened at a micro level, there is a much faster healing process compared to other hair transplantation techniques. After transplantation, the crust is minimal and this is a result that increases patient comfort.
Why Sapphire Fue hair transplant?
- Instead of steel slits, pens with ends made from real sapphire are used.
- Recovery time is shorter.
- Less tissue destruction occurs.
- It allows for a denser hair transplantation.
- Provides a more comfortable recovery process after transplantation.
