What is Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation?

Sapphire hair transplantation is the advanced version of the FUE hair transplantation technique applied with sharp-tipped special surgical pens produced from sapphire ore.

How is Sapphire FUE hair transplant applied?

In Sapphire FUE hair transplantation technique, hair follicles are collected using the FUE technique. However, the channels in the area where the hair transplantation will be performed are not opened with steel as in the FUE method, but with sapphire ore in the form of a pen. Sapphire tips enable the opening of microchannels much smaller, smoother and denser than steel in the area where the planting will be done. Micro-opening of the channels minimizes tissue deformation and reduces crusting. Thus, after the application, the scalp heals quickly and no visible scars remain. These microchannels opened with Sapphire FUE hair transplantation also allow the hair follicles to be planted frequently and in accordance with the natural exit direction. Thanks to this technique, those who experience hair loss have natural hair that cannot be distinguished from their own hair. Sapphire FUE hair transplantation can be applied in combination with other methods that increase comfort and patient satisfaction, such as sedated hair transplantation and unshaven hair transplantation.

Advantages of Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant

Sapphire tips, which are the products of the latest technology used in Sapphire FUE hair transplantation, provide more aesthetic and healthy results than steel tips. Since the channels opened with a sapphire pen are much smaller and smoother, this method causes less tissue damage compared to other hair transplantation techniques. Thus, after the application, the tissues heal quickly without leaving any visible scars.

The very fine sapphire-tipped pen allows the channels to be opened in accordance with the size and angle of the hair follicles. Thus, hair follicles can be placed inside the channels at a natural angle. This allows the transplanted hair to hold on to the scalp more strongly and to obtain a very natural appearance.

The sapphire tip pen used in the Sapphire FUE method allows the opening of microchannels in the size of the hair follicle. This allows channels to be opened at more frequent intervals and the roots to be planted closer to each other in the area where hair transplantation will be performed. In the Sapphire FUE method, a more natural and fuller appearance is obtained by planting the hair follicles frequently compared to other techniques.

Instead of steel slits, pens with real sapphire nibs are used.

Who is an Eligible Candidate for Sapphire FUE?

All men and women aged 20-60, who have sufficient hair follicles in the donor area, can regain their lost hair with Sapphire FUE hair transplantation technique.

Sapphire FUE hair transplantation is a permanent solution against typical hair loss such as opening at the temples, receding the forehead line, opening the hair from the top or homogeneous thinning, as it can be used in case of severe hair loss in a large area.

Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant Examination

Mandatory general surgical procedures such as various blood tests before hair transplant operations and detailed hair transplant examination are carried out together. It is checked whether the general health status of the patient is suitable for the operation.

The history of hair loss and the patient's expectation in hair transplantation are evaluated at this stage. The patient is informed about the other FUE hair transplantation technique and the processes of the hair transplantation operation, the estimated duration of the operation and all other details are shared with the patient. Curious questions are answered.

Sapphire Fue Hair Transplant Planning / Number of Grafts

Depending on the severity of hair loss, the number of grafts to be collected from the donor area should be allocated to the areas to be transplanted so that a certain hair density is obtained. Planning can be thought of as the map of the hair transplant on the scalp.

Since the Sapphire FUE technique provides the opportunity to open more channels, the number of grafts to be collected from the donor area is determined accordingly.
