Hair Transplantation Methods

There are a few hair transplantation methods each with their own advantages. To understand the different techniques and to avoid ending up being confused between all of the methods, it is important to understand the key difference: harvesting.

The main difference or separation between methods is the harvesting method. There are two main harvesting methods that are different from each other in practical terms: The FUE and the FUT hair transplantation methods.

The methods have been evolved with from year to year, and due to the vigorous researches of doctors in the field of hair transplant, the methods are getting better, less invasive, less scarring, more efficient, much safer, less painful, and more and more comfortable day by day.

FUT (Strip Method ): Hair roots are made with the help of a scalpel from the donor area. These roots are then individually separated and prepared for transplantation. With this technique, when the hair is planted, there is a linear scar on the donor area on the back of the head.

FUE Hair Transplant: In this method, the roots are collected one by one from the donor area with a micro motor system and transferred one by one to the bald area. Compared to the FUT method, the FUE method hair transplantation is much more advantageous, efficient and the results are much better than the FUT method.

Then there is the DHI method which is similar to FUE with the harvesting technique but is different in terms of implantation. With the DHI technique, extracted hair follicles are placed with the DHI Implanter Pen directly into the skin. While with traditional FUE and FUT methods the follicles were placed into holes which were made beforehand by creating small incisions/cuts in the skin.

So not only harvesting, but the implantation process may differ from technique to technique. There is also some difference between the materials and tools used in hair transplantation operations. For instance: the types and sizes of punches, the tip shapes, and type of incision blades, etc.

Each of these methods was found to be useful and has been developed to aim for better hair transplant results.

Cosmedica uses the newest method, which she calls the DHI Sapphire techniques. The method is technically FUE, but with small changes. The name derives from the DHI Implanter and the Sapphire incision blades. This hybrid technique is created to make use of every advantageous part of the newest methods by combining the FUE method, with the DHI Method, using the DHI Implanter Pen and the Sapphire Blade.

DHI Sapphire Hair Transplant is a technique in which the grafts are harvested from the back of the head and the reception holes in the skin are made with Sapphire Blade.

Until this part the processes are FUE-wise, but then the grafts are placed into the holes with the DHI Implanter Pen.

This hybrid method is highly effective because the Sapphire Pen keeps the holes in the reception area as minimal as possible. When inserting the DHI Pen into this hole created by Sapphire Pen, the skin stretches, but the hole is not opened further away, thus the wound is not getting larger.

What if we implant directly with the DHI Pen?

The wounds will be larger than incisions made by the Sapphire Blade and the process itself is less smooth. For the best results, please contact Cosmedica – Dr. Acar in Turkey for a free hair transplantation assessment.
