What is Sapphire FUE, One of the Modern Hair Transplant Techniques?


Sapphire FUE hair transplantation technique is the type that is performed with the help of a pen made of a special sapphire alloy during the follicular unit extraction process. This special pen makes the grooving process faster.

Thanks to this process, the problem of hair loss or sparseness can be permanently eliminated by having thicker and tighter hair in a shorter time and after the procedure. The procedure is suitable for both men and women.

How is Sapphire FUE Technique Applied?

First of all, in order to achieve a natural appearance, the hairline of the individual is determined and a planning is made accordingly. Then, the most suitable region for the donor area is determined. Generally, the nape region is preferred because it is very strong. However, other regions may also be preferred. The procedure begins with the administration of anesthesia to the donor area.

Optionally, the hair can be shortened to 1 mm or the hair follicles can be collected without shaving. After the anesthesia shows its effect, the hair follicles are taken with a sapphire-tipped special pen and collected one by one into the special solution in a container. The solution helps to keep the hair follicles alive.

Local anesthesia is applied to the area to be transplanted. Then, the channels are opened in micro size with a sapphire-tipped pen and the hair follicle is placed under the skin. For a natural look, hair follicles are transplanted one by one to fill all the gaps at frequent intervals.

The application is usually completed in a single session. However, more than one session may be required by the doctor, depending on the individual’s health status.

What are the Advantages of Sapphire FUE Technique?

In Sapphire FUE hair transplantation technique, the procedure is performed exactly the same as FUE. The only difference is that a special pen made of sapphire alloy is used during the collection and transplantation of hair follicles.

The device in the form of a sapphire-tipped pen allows the opening of smaller and smoother micro-sized channels than steel. The micro-sized opening of the channels reduces the amount of hair loss seen after the procedure. In this way, a higher rate of success is achieved in the transplanted hair.

In addition, the small channels provide advantages such as faster healing, lower risk of infection and bleeding. Another benefit is that the scars become vague after a few months and it is not understood that the person had a hair transplant. This gives the individual a completely natural appearance.

The procedure can also be done without shaving the hair. In this way, it is also suitable for women and men who want to protect their long hair.

What Should Be Considered After Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation?

Alcohol consumption in the first weeks after the application and cigarette consumption in the first days should be avoided. Otherwise, problems such as bleeding, edema, delayed healing and infection may develop.

It is forbidden for the individual to take a shower for the first 3 days. Hair washing procedures are carried out in the clinic by health officials. Afterwards, the doctor decides how to wash and which product should be used. In this process, the hair care products that are normally used should be avoided. When this process is completed, individuals can return to the products they use.

After the healing process is completed, the hair can be cut, dyed and all hairdressing applications can be made. Hair will be exactly the same as natural hair.

In the first days, the transplanted hair falls out and then starts to grow again. This is an expected, normal situation.

To protect hair from air pollution, sunlight and dusty environments, one should not go out unless it is necessary. If going out, it is recommended to use a hat suitable for the procedure and not too tight on the head.

The individual should not lie on his hair in the first days, should not scratch his hair and should not wipe the area when bleeding occurs. Otherwise, the hair follicles may be damaged.

During the recovery period, heavy loads should not be lifted, exercise should not be done, and sexual activities should be avoided.

Activities such as swimming, sauna, solarium, sunbathing should be avoided for a few weeks. If you enjoy such activities, you should first consult your doctor when you can do it.
