Another important point is the use of needles with a size of 0.7 mm to 0.9 mm depending on the size of the hair follicles. The most important factors affecting the success of the hair transplantation operation in the material sense are the sharpness of the needles and the single use of each patient. In addition, the hair follicles’ angles should be taken into account when drawing the hair follicles. In hair transplantation operation, the hair follicles are collected and the needle is selected according to whether the patient’s hair is flat or curly. Hair follicles should not be damaged during collection.

  1. Opening Channels

In classical FUE method, metal (steel) slits are used for opening channels. These metal slits (steel slits) should be cut in accordance with the natural direction of hair. Thus, the planted hair will grow according to the direction of natural outflow.

In hair transplantation operation, the direction of hair is created while opening the channel while the angle of hair to be planted is the element to be considered during the transplantation phase.

In the classical FUE method, metal slit (steel slits) is used for channel opening. These metal slits (steel slits) must be replaced several times during operation. Thus, these slit is not allowed to lose their sharpness.

Sapphire FUE tips are sharp and smooth, so there is no such problem. For each patient, several different tips should be used depending on the thickness of the hair follicles. In addition, each end should be used only for one patient.
