Sapphire Hair Transplant is the minimally invasive advanced version of the FUE hair transplantation technique, which is applied with sharp-tipped special surgical pens made of sapphire ore.
Hair transplantation operations, which provide a permanent solution to hair loss, begin to be applied widely with the development of the FUE technique. Although the hair follicles are collected one by one from the donor area and transplanted into the channels opened one by one in the balding area, it is a kind of micro-surgical application, but opening many micro-wounds ranging from 4 to 6 thousand in a large area causing a significant total tissue destruction.
In Sapphire hair transplant technique, tissue trauma caused by these micro-wounds is minimized. The V-shaped channels opened by sharp sapphire blades are much smaller. A smooth surgical incision significantly shortens the wound healing process, reduces tissue deformation, and helps us achieve much more natural hair transplant results.
What are the steps of the procedure?
Sapphire hair transplant is the same as Fue Hair transplantation in terms of the stages. While collecting hair follicles, steel punches are used as in the FUE technique. The difference of Sapphire FUE comes into play during the channel opening phase to the receiving area. Instead of U-shaped steel blades in the classical FUE technique, Sapphire technique uses much sharper sapphire blades made of natural sapphire stone and made of aluminum alloy.
What should I expect during my recovery after sapphire hair transplantation?
Sapphire Technique makes you feel its ingenuity in rapid recovery even two days after the operation. Wound care or first wash is done one or two days after Sapphire FUE hair transplant by a hair transplant nurse or hair transplant specialist.
The first week is the most sensitive period in hair transplantation. The first stage of this period is passed with wound care. What follows is a progressive and rapid recovery period. Because of the low surgical deformation, the scab removal period is usually completed within the first month. Another important event of this period is shedding. The hair that grows from all the hair follicles transplanted with hair transplantation falls out.
What should I expect as a result of sapphire hair transplantation?
New hair begins to show itself in 6 months. It is expected that they will be weak at first. As the hair grows, the roots become stronger and the hair strands become thicker. At the end of the first year, final result is almost completely revealed. Now, thanks to the happiness of having your hair back, you have reached the stage where your eyes start to shine. The strengthening of the hair follicles and the thickening of the hair strands continue for a while.
