What is Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation?

With the continuous advancements in technology, innovations are made in hair transplantation techniques and hair loss treatments. In particular, hair transplantation operations are making great progress in parallel with the development of the instruments used. The FUE method is considered the most advanced hair transplant technique and the success achieved thanks to FUE is increasing day by day. Sapphire FUE hair transplantation method, which is carried out using special devices with sapphire tips, takes the success in this field one step further.

The success rate and comfort of the FUE hair transplantation method, which has been applied for many years and is a globally accepted hair transplantation technique, is made possible with the sapphire tip technology. With Sapphire FUE, a faster healing process is experienced and more natural looking results are obtained.

In order to open channels for hair transplantation, instead of the metal slits preferred in conventional FUE, tips made of sapphire, which is among the precious metals, are used. FUE with a sapphire tip is not a technique in itself, but an innovation applied in the FUE method.

Stages of Sapphire Fue Hair Transplantation

Hair transplantation consists of 4 main stages:

1. Preparing for Hair Transplantation

The area where the follicles will be planted on is disinfected. In addition, anesthesia is applied. The preparation stage is the stage that determines the level of comfort during the operation.

2. Collection of Hair Follicles

In Saphire FUE, hair follicles are harvested from the donor area one by one with the help of micro motors, using micro-tips with diameters of 0,6, 0,7, and 0,8 mm depending on the hair follicles.

3. Opening of the Channels

Small (micro) channels are opened. It is aimed to accelerate the healing process by keeping the intensity of this process to a minimum. These channels greatly affect the appearance of the hair and directly determine the angle, direction and density of the hair. For this reason, opening of the channels is considered the most important stage in determining the success of a hair transplant procedure.

4. Transplantation of Hair Follicles

The collected follicles are placed in the opened channels. The small channels opened with sharp, smooth and durable sapphire tips in sizes of 1.0 -1.3 - 1.5 mm are in the size of the hair follicle, allowing a larger number of channels to be and the hair follicles to be planted closer together. In hair transplantation, the natural hair angle is considered 40 to 45 degrees. Otherwise, planting the hair at very right angles to ensure density can cause what is called a grass man appearance.

With painless, needle-free hair transplantation, do not give up your comfort!

In hair transplantation, local anesthesia is administered at the very beginning of the operation, that is, before the hair follicles are harvested from the donor area. In local anesthesia performed with a needle, it takes time for the active substance to lower sensation in the body. The pinprick sensation felt during needle insertion can naturally lead to discomfort.

Today, hair transplants can be carried out using special anesthesia instruments, without pain and the need for needles. These special instruments administer the anesthetic agents under the skin with a pressure spray system. As the time of onset of the effects of anesthesia application performed with a needle-free injector is faster than that with a needle, it provides more comfort.

The liquid gel system, which makes it possible to administer anesthesia without the need for a needle, penetrates a wider area compared to local anesthesia application with a needle and thus has a greater effect. If you have a needle phobia or are hesitant to have a hair transplant for other reasons, you can easily have this procedure carried out thanks to this new technique.

Comparison of Sapphire FUE and the Conventional FUE With A Metal Slit

Safir Uç İle Yapılan FUE Saç Ekimi Nedir?

Advantages of hair transplantation with Sapphire FUE compared to hair transplantation with conventional FUE (carried out with a metal slit):

  • Using a sapphire tip during the grooving process ensures there is less vibration due to its smooth surface with anti-bacterial properties and physical qualities such as hardness, sharpness and durability. In this way it is ensured that both the trauma and the risk of tissue damage are kept to a minimum.
  • Transplantation can be carried out more frequently with Sapphire FUE compared to the conventional FUE method, which makes it possible to carry out hair transplant in patients with hair loss in more advanced stages.
  • It helps the grafts to be planted more frequently and provides a more natural look with higher hair density.
  • Compared to conventional FUE, less fluid is injected under the skin, making it easier to open channels.
  • The post-operative period is more comfortable for the patients in every sense of the word as the level of edema seen after the application will be lower.
  • Due to the small size of the channels opened for transplantation, tissue healing after the operation is faster than with conventional FUE. And most importantly, the skin remains smooth and intact.
  • As the hair follicles are planted in the channels of their own size at the most natural angle, there is no possibility of the roots being dislodged and the angle being changed.
