Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant

Sapphire hair transplants in Turkey are performed with sharper sapphire blades than traditional steel blades. Sapphire Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Turkey is preferred by many over conventional hair transplant procedures because the precious gemstone used to make the instruments increases precision. The improved precision has a noticeable impact on the outcomes.

Sapphire FUE versus Classic FUE

Sapphire FUE, in contrast to traditional FUE, does not involve the creation of large incisions.

Instead of the steel blades used in standard FUE transplants, sapphire blades are utilized in a procedure known as a “sapphire FUE transplant.” If you need to make an incision inside the recipient site, a blade made of sapphire will do the job beautifully. The blades are made to open smaller microchannels within the recipient site, which reduces scab formation and speeds up the recovery process.

Using a micro motor and micro punches in sizes of 0.6, 0.7, and 0.8 mm, hair follicles are retrieved one by one from the donor area in FUE performed with sapphire blades after the patient has been given local anesthetic.

After follicles are removed via FUE, they are implanted into the recipient sites. The density, angle, and direction of hair growth following a transplant are all factors that can be affected by these channels. The first step in any successful operation is to open the channels.

In order to access microscopic passageways, sapphira blades are superior to any other option. Use of sharp, smooth, and long-lasting sapphire blades of varied sizes (1.0, 1.3, and 1.5 mm) allows for the creation of incisions that are the same length as the follicles. Since there are now more pathways to be created, follicles can be implanted in closer proximity to one another.

What are the pros of hair transplantation with sapphire?

As a strong and smooth material, sapphire blades are ideal for opening channels. This is why a sapphire blade produces nearly flawless cuts with minimal tissue injury. A key aspect in a speedy recovery is the use of smaller, less invasive incisions (micro incisions).

Our surgeons are able to do FUE hair transplantation with greater regularity and greater naturalness because to the V-shaped termination of sapphire blades. Sapphire blades offer more flexibility than traditional approaches when it comes to adjusting the angle at which incisions are formed.

A natural hairline requires careful consideration of the hair’s growth direction after transplantation. Many people have an allergy to metals, thus the widespread use of sapphire blades has improved hair transplant outcomes.

Likewise, the lower risk of infection is a result of the smooth surface of the sapphire blades, which prevents bacteria from clinging to them.

Important Factors Before Deciding on Sapphire FUE

There are a number of issues that make a Sapphire hair transplant in Turkey inappropriate for some people. Our doctors and technicians will have a conversation during your appointment for a FUE Sapphire hair transplant to choose a course of action. To determine if an applicant is qualified, three things are looked at most frequently:

Cause of baldness

Candidates for a Sapphire hair transplant in Istanbul may have androgenic alopecia, traction alopecia, or alopecia marginalis, all of which cause hair loss. Most people who have lost hair in patches due to trauma, such as from scars or burns, are good candidates.

The density of the donor area

Because the hair is taken from donor locations, it is vital to have regions of the scalp that are densely covered in hair. Because the procedure of a FUE Sapphire transplant involves moving hair from the donor site to the weak points, it is necessary that these locations have sufficient amounts of healthy hair.

Early signs of hair loss or thinning

It is recommended that everyone who is just beginning to lose their hair get a Sapphire FUE hair transplant while it is believed that their hair density is still relatively high. In contrast to a typical FUE treatment, this kind of hair transplantation is carried out without causing any damage to the hair follicles that are located in the surrounding area.

Sapphire FUE Aftercare & Recovery

  • The recovery time after a Sapphire FUE in Turkey is short.
