What is FUE Sapphire Hair Transplant and How is it Applied?
FUE Sapphire is an improved hair transplant technique of the FUE method and achieves the most natural result. It is a sub-version of the FUE technique. It is one of the most up-to-date technologies. The main feature that distinguishes it from the classical FUE method is that the tip of the medical blade used to open the channel during the operation is covered with sapphire, which is a very valuable metal, not steel.
The damage that occurs in the recipient area after the operation, the direction and frequency of hair growth are related to the channels opened. When we take this into consideration, the Sapphire FUE method has positive contributions to the operation and the healing process afterwards. In the Sapphire FUE method, a channel is opened from the donor area with 0.6 07 and 0.8 mm micro tips. Afterwards, the hair follicles collected with 1.0 -1.3-1.5 mm sapphire-coated tips are transplanted to the recipient area.
