Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant


Sapphire FUE hair transplant is a hair restoration procedure that uses a specialized tool made from sapphire crystal to create the channels for hair follicle implantation.

The sapphire blade used in the procedure is thinner and more precise than the traditional steel blades used in FUE hair transplant. This technique minimizes trauma to the scalp and can lead to faster healing times and better hair growth.

The ideal candidates for Sapphire FUE hair transplant are individuals who are experiencing hair loss and have sufficient hair follicles in the donor area, usually at the back or sides of the scalp. Candidates should also have realistic expectations for the results of the procedure and be in good overall health. It can be applied to anyone over the age of 18.

Sapphire FUE hair transplant can be used to treat a variety of hair loss conditions, including male pattern baldness, female pattern baldness, and alopecia areata. It can also be used to restore hair to areas of the body other than the scalp, such as the beard or eyebrows.


What Are The Advantages of Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant?


Sapphire FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant is a relatively new technique that uses a sapphire blade to create the incisions needed for hair transplantation. Some potential advantages of Sapphire FUE hair transplant are:


  • The sapphire blade used in this technique is sharper and more precise than traditional steel blades, allowing for microchannels and therefore more precise placement of the hair follicles. This can result in a more natural-looking hairline and less scarring generally in one visit.
  • The healing process is generally faster and less painful than with other hair transplant techniques. Additionally, the use of sapphire blades reduces tissue trauma and decreases the risk of swelling and bruising.
  • The smaller incisions made with the sapphire blade allow for more hair follicles to be transplanted per square centimeter, which can result in a denser and fuller-looking head of hair.
  • Because the incisions are smaller and more precise, there is less risk of damage to surrounding tissue, blood vessels, and nerves. This can reduce the risk of complications such as bleeding, infection, and nerve damage.
  • Since the incisions made with the sapphire blade are smaller and more faultless, there is less scarring and a lower risk of keloid or hypertrophic scarring.


It should remember that every patient's results may vary and that the success of a hair transplant depends on various factors such as the extent of hair loss, the number of hair follicles available for transplantation, and one's overall health.

It's useful to consult with a qualified and experienced hair transplant surgeon to determine if Sapphire FUE hair transplant is the right option for individual needs.


How is Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant Performed?


The first step in Sapphire FUE hair transplant is a consultation with a qualified hair transplant surgeon. During this consultation, the surgeon examines the scalp, assesses the hair loss, and determines the new hairline. The front hairline should look as natural as possible.

Once the person has decided to undergo a Sapphire FUE hair transplant, the donor area of the scalp is shaved, and local anesthesia will be administered. The surgeon then uses a micromotor device with a sapphire blade to make small incisions around each hair follicle in the donor area. These follicles are then extracted individually with forceps, leaving tiny puncture wounds that heal quickly without leaving scars.

The collected hair follicles are kept in a special solution. Then the channel opening phase is started. The surgeon carefully inserts each hair follicle into these channels in a way that creates a natural-looking hairline and density. This stage may take approx 8 hours, depending on the number of follicles being transplanted.

After the Sapphire FUE hair transplant procedure, the person is given specific instructions on how to care for their scalp and hair in the coming days and weeks. This may include avoiding certain activities, taking medications, and using special shampoos and products to promote recovery and prevent infection.


Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant Post-op Period


After undergoing Sapphire FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplantation, it is important to follow a healthy aftercare diet to ensure that the hair follicles implant and grow properly.

It should be kept in mind that individual results may vary, and it may take several months to see significant improvement in hair growth. It's also vital to maintain a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and avoid smoking to promote proper healing and hair growth after Sapphire FUE hair transplantation.
