Sapphire FUE Technique

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.

Advantages of Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant

Sapphire FUE hair transplantation has many advantages over metal slit hair transplantation.

  • -The sapphire tip is not only smooth, sharp, and durable but also antibacterial. Thanks to all these features, the risk of trauma and tissue damage will be reduced as it provides much less vibration while opening the canal.
  • -FUE technique performed with a sapphire tip enables to plant denser than with a slit tip. This is an advantage for people with hair loss in advanced stages.
  • -Because the channels opened in Sapphire FUE hair transplantation are very small, post-operative recovery is faster and more comfortable.
  • -The use of sapphire in hair transplantation has also been a good alternative when considering the existence of individuals allergic to metal.
  •  -Sapphire FUE is successfully used not only in hair transplantation but also in eyebrow, mustache, and beard transplantation.
