Hair Transplant Techniques
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a type of hair transplant done by extracting the healthy and more durable hair follicles from the scalp parts where they grow and moving them to another part where the hair’s thinner or absent.
The surgeon implants these follicles into previously opening channels or incisions in the scalp. This technique results in no visible scarring when both extracting and transplanting.
The DHI method differs from the FUE Technique It can be done without shaving the skull, only the donor area will be trimmed for the extraction process . by the use of Micro Motor Tool and secondly Implantation, with the Choi pens used to implant each graft directly without prior creation of canolas to control the angle of the direction of each graft.
Choi pens are more accurate they come in various sizes for a more natural look. Hair density is calculated by counting the hair growing in each centimeter square on the scalp.
This technique also promotes faster healing times, which is minimal in comparison to any other technique.
FUE / S Technique
This technique is similar to FUE but differs in the blade used in the procedure. Sapphire FUE tool uses blades made of sapphire, which is a durable, valuable gemstone. V-shaped pin offers more intricacy over the regular U-shaped pin of steel blades to make incisions for the hair transplant procedure.
However, Sapphire operation is a more suitable technique for dense transplantation because the sapphire blades are small and thin, and the grafts have less contact with the external part. At the same time, the healing process is much shorter in applications with sapphire FUE hair transplants.
