Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant - HairextreM Clinic

Fue Sapphire

Follicular unit extraction is one of the latest methods used in the field of hair transplantation in the world. Turkey is among the countries which are very successfull in implementing this method in the world because this technique allows to obtain a more natural result unlike the previous method.

This technique consists of opening the channels with a sapphire blade instead of a metal blade so as not to damage the patient's scalp and to have a satisfactory result.

The FUE sapphire involves removing the grafts using a motorized rotary punch from the donor area without damaging it in order to transplant them directly to the recipient area.

After having decision with the patient to the areas of graft placement, the doctor opens the channels by help of a sapphire blade.This is the most important step in the intervention because in this step the hair direction is defined.

Why choose the FUE sapphire:

It is very important that the scalp is not damaged and the blood circulation is not disturbed when opening channels. For this, the channels are open with sapphire blades

The benefits of FUE Sapphire:

  • The sapphire blade is quite hard and does not lose its sharpness; therefore no loss or scar on the scalp is encountered when opening the canals
  • Sapphire blades increase the attachment rate of transplanted grafts.
  • Higher density
  • Fast healing for fewer scrars

The difference between classic FUE and Sapphire FUE

The FUE technique with sapphire blades is made from a gemstone called sapphire. Instead of using steel blades while making incisions in the recipient site, special sapphire blades will be used.

The hair implant with FUE Sapphire is not a technique. It is an innovation designed to open even smaller micro-channels in the recipient area where the hair follicles will be transplanted.Therefore this method will be speed up the healing process and minimize the formation of scabs.

What precautions should be taken before a FUE Sapphire session?

Before the operation, the FUE operation with Sapphire blades, you must be examined by the doctor who will do the operation. If there is any health problem or the medications used must be specified.

Depending on the doctor's recommendation, it may be necessary to stop smoking and drinking alcohol a week or 3-4 days before the operation.  If anticoagulants are used, it must be stopped one week before and this by consulting the doctor who prescribed them.

It should be remembered that the Sapphire FUE procedure is a surgical procedure and that the person should prefer clinics that address it in this discipline.

Are there any prohibitions or prescriptions after the procedure?

Some steps still need to be taken after sapphire hair transplant which allows for an easier healing process. Although it seems unnecessary to mention that the patients should avoid bumping or rubbing their head on any surface for 10 days.

Wearing buttoned or zipped clothing for the first few days greatly reduces this risk. Regular use of medicines given by our clinic will allow you to have a faster and more comfortable healing process.
