What is Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation Technique?
With the development of technology, new developments occur in Hair Transplantation Methods and hair loss treatments every day.
FUE Hair Transplantation Method is one of the most common hair transplantation techniques. The natural results obtained by FUE Hair Transplantation are achieved. FUE Hair Transplants used in the Metal Slit (Steel Slit) instead of the very precious metal Safir is produced using special inserts. Instead of the metal slits, the natural results were taken a step further by using special tools with sapphire tip. Thanks to these sapphire tips, small micro channels can be opened in the area where the hair follicles will be planted. Thus, the improvement becomes shorter.

FUE Hair Transplantation with sapphire tip is not a new hair transplantation technique but an innovation applied in FUE Hair Transplantation Method. Thanks to these sapphire tips, small micro channels can be opened in the area where the hair follicles will be planted. Thus, the improvement becomes shorter.
In FUE Hair Transplant Method (Follicular Unit Extraction) performed with a sapphire tip, the hair follicles are taken from the donor region by micro-motor under local anesthesia, using micro-tips with diameters ranging from 0.6 – 0.7 – 0.8 mm. The hair follicles collected from the donor area should be planted in the channels to be opened in the FUE method.
Correct opening of these channels is very important because the direction, angle and frequency of hair are directly related to the channels. Therefore, the opening of channels is the most important stage in the success of an operation.
Micro channels are best opened with these special sapphire tips. Hair follicles are planted in these channels opened with sapphire tips. These sapphire tips are sharp, smooth and durable, between 1.0 -1.3 -1.5 mm. Because the small channels of the sapphire tips are of the hair root size, more channels are opened and the hair follicles are planted closer to one of them. Thus, more natural hair is achieved.
