Sapphire Hair Transplant

What is sapphire hair transplantation?

The need for hair transplantation is increasing day by day and at present sapphire hair transplantation plays an important role in the development of new techniques. This led to the development of hair loss treatments and new, innovative hair transplant techniques.

Hair transplant operations have made great strides and have turned into a procedure performed with minimal methods, parallel to the innovations in the instruments used today.

The FUE method is known as the most advanced hair transplant technique today, which gives natural looking results. Today, even higher success rates are achieved with the Sapphire hair transplant technique, which uses special devices with sapphire tips.

Sapphire FUE grafts are performed with blades made from sapphire material instead of the steel blades used in normal FUE grafts. The blades used in the sapphire hair transplant method are especially useful for making incisions in the recipient area.

The blades are designed to speed up the healing process and minimize crusting by opening tiny micro-channels in the area where the graft will take place.

Collection of hair roots in Sapphire FUE technique

In a sapphire hair transplant, the hair follicles are collected one by one from the donor area in the neck. Different steel punches are used depending on the size of the hair follicle. This stage of sapphire hair transplantation is the same as the FUE technique.

The collected hair follicles are divided into groups according to their thickness and prepared for planting in special solutions.

Opening of channels in Sapphire FUE technique

The revolutionary effect of this technique comes to the fore at this stage. The microchannels opened with special sapphire tips of 1mm/1.3mm and 1.5mm diameter are V-shaped and their angles can be adjusted to each other, which gives the best results in hair transplantation.


How is sapphire hair transplantation applied?

With the sapphire technique, the hair follicles from the donor area are planted one by one in the V-shaped incisions that are opened with sapphire-tipped blades.

Whatever method of hair transplantation is used, the main parameter that will determine the result is the hair reserve in the donor area. With the sapphire hair transplant technique, it is possible to achieve results that exceed expectations, even with severe hair loss. However, determining whether there is enough hair in the donor area is important to meet patient expectations.

Sapphire hair transplant is the same in stages as FUE hair transplant. Similar to the FUE technique, steel punches are used when collecting hair follicles. The Sapphire FUE difference plays a role during the channel opening phase to the receiving area. Instead of the U-shaped steel blades in the classic FUE technique, the Sapphire technique uses much sharper sapphire blades made of natural sapphire stone and aluminum all

What are the benefits of sapphire hair transplantation?

Sapphire leaves are hard and smooth. Therefore, cuts made with a sapphire leaf are nearly perfect and cause minimal tissue damage. The smoothness of the cuts is a very important factor for rapid healing. Because the tips of sapphire leaves are V-shaped, doctors can cut more often and achieve more natural results.

The direction of the transplanted hair is very important for a natural and strong look. Thanks to the sapphire method, the direction of the hair can be easily adjusted. Metal allergy is common in society. For this reason, the widespread use of sapphire leaves has a positive influence on the results of hair transplantation in these people.

Who is eligible for Saffier FUE technique?

All men and women aged 20-60 who have enough hair follicles in the donor area can regain their lost hair with Sapphire FUE hair transplant technique.

Since sapphire hair transplant can be applied to severe hair loss in a large area, it is a permanent solution against typical hair loss such as splits in the temples, regression of the forehead line, splits in the top part of the hair or homogeneous thinning.

Bij de FUE-methode worden de gezonde haarwortels een voor een verwijderd door een plastisch chirurg, als een rechte lijn op het achterhoofd tussen de twee oren. De verpleegsters sorteren de grafts vervolgens in groepjes van 1, 2 en/of 3. De volume (haardikte) per cm2 wordt vastgesteld en berekend, om te kunnen bepalen wat de beste stap is voor de patiënt en hoeveel grafts bijv. het beste resultaat geeft. De lengte en breedte van de lijn van het donorgebied wordt bepaald om de optimale aantal grafts te kunnen extracteren. De FUE-methode maakt ook gebruik van hoogwaardige technologische vooruitgang, desondanks wordt er wereldwijd toch liever gekozen voor de FUE-methode
