Hair transplantation operations performed with the FUE technique have taken the place of other hair transplantation techniques in a short time, giving natural and effective results. The instruments used in minimally invasive techniques such as FUE are of great importance. Sapphire FUE hair transplantation, as the name suggests, is a state-of-the-art treatment performed with the help of special instruments with sapphire tips.
In Sapphire FUE hair transplantation, a special tip made of sapphire, a precious metal, is used instead of a metal slit during the grooving phase. In other words, Sapphire FUE is not a hair transplant technique, but an innovation in this technique. Sapphire-tipped instruments minimize the formation of scars and scabs as they open smaller micro-channels in the area where the hair follicles will be transplanted. In this way, the healing process progresses faster and easier.
In FUE hair transplantation with a sapphire tip, hair follicles are taken one by one from the donor area with micro tips of 0.6-0.8 mm in diameter under local anesthesia. The collected hair is transplanted with the FUE method. Sapphire tips are very convenient for micro-grooving. The minimal size of the channels opened with sharp, smooth, and durable tips allow the hair follicles to be planted closer to each other by increasing the number of opened channels.
