sapphire fue hair transplant

Sapphire FUE hair transplant is one of the latest step in classical FUE where after extraction the crucial step of slit (perforation in skin to make recipient site for graft) making is done with help of sapphire gem (stone) instead of blades or needles which are used in FUE.

The channels made in slit technique are considered as major step in successful hair transplant. This channels have major impact and control on density, angle, depth & direction of hair growth.

Process

After giving local anesthesia in donor area, grafts are extracted with automated FUE with help of 0.7,0.8,0.9 mm mini & micro punches. After process of extraction anesthesia is given in recipient site and small incisions are made with help of sharp, smooth sapphire blades of different sizes like 1.0,1.3,1.5 mm.

Advantages of sapphire blade

  • Sapphire blade avoid too much tissue damage as the shape of sapphire blade itself is spear shaped so it opens the channel in the required diameter only thus avoiding excess trauma to the skin, less trauma to the skin means lesser scar tissue and faster recovery.
  • Sapphire blade avoids too much or excessive bleeding as the incisions made are very minute.
  • Density is definitely more compared to the classical FUE incisions.
  • Results are more natural compared to the classical FUE.
  • Life of hair transplant becomes more.
  • Post operative care becomes more easier as the channels hold grafts more comfortably and in aligned state
