Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant

The FUE Sapphire commonly used for hair transplant procedures is also one of the most modern transplant techniques. The success of Sapphire FUE is to ensure extremely natural results which comes with the use of special tools with sapphire blades allowing finer incisions.

Incisions are being delivered by using special sapphire blades instead of conventional metal blades. Rather than a new technique it should be considered an innovation.

Using sapphire blades allows less skin provocation and damage and therefore surgical healing period is shorter. Pain is also minimized as well as bleeding during the operation. Infection risk after a sapphire employed FUE procedure is very low respectively. Natural and dense look is normally obtained after such a Sapphire FUE procedure where single use sterile materials come as a standard.

Sapphire FUE, How?

Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant

Sapphire FUE hair transplant is performed under local anesthesia. Follicular Units (FUs) are extracted individually from the donor area via 0,6-0,7-0,8 mm diameter micro-motor. Then incisions are being delivered to the recipient area with the help of 1,0-1,3-1,5 mm sharp, smooth and durable sapphire blades. Sapphire tools provides finer and micro level incisions so that the interval between incisions is respectively closer and therefore this increases the density of transplant and the total number of transplanted FUs.   

Incision direction and angle determine the density of transplant and create natural look for the individual. Therefore incision phase of the procedure has very important role on the success of every hair transplant operation.
