So, what is the Sapphire FUE hair transplant method? How is it applied? Let's take a closer look.
What is Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant?
Sapphire FUE is one of the newest and most up-to-date methods used in hair transplantation procedure. This method, which is based on the FUE method, is applied through sapphire tipped devices. To fully understand the sapphire FUE method, it is necessary to take a look at the FUE method. The FUE method, which has been widely used in hair transplantation for many years, is the biggest reason behind the success of the Sapphire FUE procedure. In a sense, we can say that the FUE method is an improved version.
FUE method, known as Follicular Unit Extraction, consists of 3 main stages. These stages are;
• Collection of hair follicles,
• Opening channels,
• It is in the form of planting roots known as graft to the canals.
In the FUE method, which is a very natural method, hair follicles are transplanted one by one. In this application, hair follicles or grafts are taken one by one from the donor area for hair transplantation and the ones that can give the best results are selected. It is then transplanted to the area to be transplanted. Sapphire FUE method is the realization of FUE method with sapphire tipped devices.
How is the Sapphire FUE Method Applied?
In the Sapphire FUE method, which is an improved version of the FUE method, as mentioned above, sapphire tipped devices are used. The FUE method, which has almost become the main method applied in the field of hair transplantation for many years, forms the basis of the Sapphire FUE method. In another sense, Safir FUE is not actually a new method, it is an improved version of FUE hair transplantation.
Hair transplantation is based on anesthesia. Thanks to local anesthesia, special tools and agents are transferred under the skin to the area where hair transplantation will be performed. Agents that act as anesthesia with a pressurized spray system are known to be more comfortable and faster than needle injection. On the contrary, in the procedure performed with an injector needle, it takes a long time for the active substances to show the effect of drowsiness in the body. It also causes discomfort for the anesthetized person.
In the FUE method, metal slit is used in the channel opening process for hair transplantation. In the sapphire FUE method, these metal tips are replaced by real sapphire tips. Thanks to this method, known as a new innovation, crusting is minimized and the healing process is accelerated. Thus, it is planned that the people who have hair transplantation will get through this process in the most comfortable way.
In the sapphire hair transplantation method, the hair follicles are taken from the donor area in the form of grafts through sapphire tipped micro tips and placed in the opened channels as in the FUE method. The channels opened with durable and smooth sapphire tips with an average size of 1.0 - 1.5 mm give more effective results. Thus, factors such as hair angle and density are significantly affected.
What are the Advantages of Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation?
Hair transplantation with the sapphire FUE method has many advantages compared to hair transplantation with metal tipped tools that have been used for many years. We can list these advantages as follows;
• Sapphire tipped tools cause less vibration in grooving process due to its smooth and durable surface. In addition, it minimizes the risk of tissue damage and prevents possible traumas.
• Sapphire tipped FUE method causes a denser planting. Thus, it gives excellent results in advanced stage hair loss.
• Sapphire FUE is a method where grafts are transplanted more frequently. Therefore, hair density helps to achieve a natural look.
• Less fluid is injected under the skin in this method compared to the metal slit method. Thus, channel opening is provided with less liquid injection.
• After the procedure, the amount of edema in the person who has hair transplantation is also minimized.
• Hair follicles are perfectly placed into the canals in accordance with their size. In this way, it is not possible for the angle settings to change and the roots to move.
Is Sapphire FUE Method Risky?
The FUE method, which has been used in the hair transplantation sector for many years, is used almost as the only method because it is painless and offers an aesthetically perfect appearance. The metal slit method used before the FUE method resulted in both discomfort during the procedure and in some cases, factors such as hair angle and frequency were at the desired level. For this reason, the FUE method and its innovative version, Safir FUE, have been developed. In short, Safir FUE hair transplantation does not contain any risks. On the contrary, this allows a painless and perfect procedure.
After Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant
The most curious issue after the FUE procedure, also known as Sapphire FUE hair transplantation, is how long the hair will grow and whether there will be side effects. It is a very normal process for the hair transplanted to shed after a while. In this process, one should not panic. After this process, the hair clings to the root more effectively. Thus, the process of entering a normal growth rhythm of the transplanted hair begins. Hair that adheres well to the root begins to grow for the first 6 on average and again takes its natural form within 1 year.
There is absolutely no hair loss after the Sapphire FUE hair transplant procedure. Because the roots to be planted are taken from the donor area where there are strong hair follicles. Ideal time for the first bath is the 2nd day after hair transplantation. However, water should not come into contact with the planting area. Washing of the graft areas should be done by experts in the hair transplantation center.
