Sapphire hair transplantation is an advanced and minimally invasive version of the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique, performed using special surgical pens with sharp tips made from sapphire gemstone. Hair transplantation operations, which provide a permanent solution to hair loss, have become widespread with the development of the FUE technique. The channels created by sharp sapphire blades are much smaller. The smooth surgical incision significantly shortens the healing process, reduces tissue deformation, and helps us achieve much more natural hair transplantation results.
Sapphire FUE is a variation of the FUE method. In this technique, a specialized surgical blade made of sapphire is used to extract hair follicles. Sapphire blades aim to achieve more natural results by enabling finer incisions.
Some advantages of Sapphire FUE include:
- Sapphire blades can create finer and more precise incisions, resulting in a more natural hairline and growth pattern.
- It causes less tissue damage and bleeding.
- The recovery process is often faster, and the resulting scars may be less noticeable.
Sapphire FUE utilizes specialized blades made of sapphire, which differ from traditional FUE methods. These blades can achieve finer incisions, leading to more natural-looking results. Additionally, incisions made with sapphire blades tend to have faster healing times and less noticeable scars.
Local anesthesia is administered during Sapphire FUE, so you won’t feel any pain during the procedure. However, there may be some mild discomfort, swelling, or a burning sensation after the procedure. These side effects are typically temporary and short-lived.
The success rate of Sapphire FUE depends on the experience of the performing surgeon, proper application, and the individual’s hair loss condition. When performed correctly, Sapphire FUE generally has a high success rate and provides natural-looking hair growth.
