What is the steps of the process Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant?

The steps of the process are as follows:

  • At first, there is an examination part where doctors examine the patient to know about the hair type, skin type, the density of the hair. The experts determine the hair amount that is required and the density of the hair, and all other necessary information during the examination process.
  • At the second step, the patient and doctor decide on the selected donor area where the hair follicular will be extracted to be replanted again.
  • The third step is the application step. The doctor opens holes with sapphire blades as channels on the needed parts of the head. These channels will be used as plantation areas of hair follicular.
  • The samples taken from the determined donor area are put in the channels, one by one.

The amount of follicles depends on the patient's skin and hair type. On the other hand, high density is essential to have a successful operation.

In a classical FUE operation, conventional steel blades are used. And over time, these blades turn into unsharpened and less efficient tools. Due to the damages on the edges in time, there might be some scalp tissue harm during the creation of the channels. In contrast to the conventional steel blades, the sapphire blades are much sharper. And, sapphire blades keep the excellent condition for a longer time.
