History, Purpose and Usage
Hair loss emerges as a permanent problem when the hair follicle is thinned, and this regrowth does not occur. Hair transplantation is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that provides permanent results when combatting hair loss.
Experiencing Hair Loss
Hair loss emerges as a common clinical complaint that affects 60% of men and 50% of women and significantly reduces individuals’ quality of life by altering their self-image and social perceptions.
There are several medications to combat hair loss, it is known that they temporarily inhibit hair shedding, while hair transplantation is a surgical operation that provides permanent results. As the latest advancements in hair transplantation technology enabled transplanting a higher number of grafts in a short time without any discomfort or pain during the operation, the majority of patients with progressive hair loss opt for hair transplantation.
Understanding Hair Transplant
Hair transplantation is a minimally invasive surgical procedure involving the removal of hair follicles from the donor site, the part of the body where hair follicles are harvested from, and their transplantation to the recipient site, the balding part of the body.
There are two methods to transplant hair from a donor site.
FUE Hair Transplant
Follicular Unit Extraction often referred to as FUE is a minimally invasive surgical procedure where your doctor directly extracts each follicular unit, with 0.75 to 1.20 mm cylindrical surgical tools know as punches from your scalp. The great advantage of the FUE method is that the wounds are practically imperceptible after the procedure even when the patient shaves his/her hair.
Also, it stimulates the growth of hair on areas close to the transplant, so no differentiation can be made between natural scalp hair and the transplanted hair.
Understanding Hair Transplant
Adding a twist to the standard procedure, a Sapphire micro FUE hair transplant utilizes sapphire blades instead of the regular steel blades used in regular FUE transplants for a higher level of accuracy in creating incisions in the recipient site.
The sapphire blades are designed to minimize scab formation and accelerate the recovery process by creating smaller microchannels within the recipient site for grafting hair follicles.
