As it’s name suggests, Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant is a FUE hair transplant procedure conducted by using special blades made from sapphire instead of steel blades. It is not a new hair transplantation technique but using sapphire blades during the FUE procedure is a new innovation. The only difference between Sapphire FUE and Classical FUE is to use sapphire blades instead of regular steel blades.
Channels opening phase is the most important stage for a successful hair transplant operation. Because the direction, angle and frequency of hair are directly depends on the opened channels. In a Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant procedure these micro channels are openning with saphire blades. Channels opend by the sapphire blades are exactly in the size of hair root, this allows us to open more channels and plant the hair follicles closer to each other without irritating neighbour follicles. The best way to open micro channels can be achieved through the utilization of sapphire blades now.
The advantages of using Sapphire Blade in FUE hair transplantation
The sapphire blades offer several adavantages comparing with the steel blades.
The steel blades may lose their sharpness by the time which may causa tissue loss during the incission. Sapphire blades are hundreds of times harder that regular steel blades and it does not lose sharpness.
The incisions made with a sapphire blade are much finer than the incissions can be made with standard steel blades. This leaves less cell damage along the incision.
It allows to surgeon to made an accurate, clean incission with minimal tissue trauma, which speeds healing and reduces scarring.
Because sapphire blades are non-metallic, there is no metal ion reactivity. It reduces the risk of the metal allergy for the patients with metal sensibility.
Intead of U-shaped tips of steel blades, sapphire blades has V-shaped tips it allows to open small micro channels where the hair follicles will be planted.
Creating beautiful and natural look
Today,It’s possible to have natural-looking hair transplant results thanks to advanced Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique. Every person is unique, therefore we are designing a special FUE procedure based on the gender, age, size of hair loss and pattern and in addition to desire of the patient. Current improvements in creating the hairline and transplanting the follicules in the balding areas help to create undetectable results.This eliminates the unnatural doll-like hair transplant results as it was in the 80s.
While the improvements are giving patients undetectable, natural looking and results, the outcome still depends on the surgeon. The skills and technique of the surgeon, the instruments used during the procedure, the way of extraction and implantation can offer different results not only in the percentage of the hair growth but also in how natural the final result can be. We have been using FUE technique for many years to achieve natural-looking and lifelong results. Our surgeons have over 20 years of experience and we are proud to offer the best FUE Hair Transplant to help our patients to get the look they desire.
Since each follicular unit may have 1, 2, 3 or 4 hairs, we are transplanting the single-hair follicular units to the first few rows of the hairline. The location of the center of the hairline, must be placed according to the shape of the forehead, height above the eyebrows and the height of the face. The hairline must not be lower than the original one before hair loss started and not be straight. There must be macro- and micro-irregularities. The follicles must be arranged irregularly with variable thickness creating a soft, feathered hairline. An excellent result is one that looks natural and harmonizes with other facial features of the patient.
We are using the finest possible instruments that varies in size from 0.7-1.0 mm. The quality of the grafts and the number of hair per graft are important for good result. The extracted grafts are placed on the areas of hair loss by making small channels. The direction and angle of the channels are very important to give a natural look. Thus modern hair transplantation can achieve a natural appearance by mimicking natural hair.
