Today, FUE technique is widely practised. Practical and advantageous methods have emerged. Sapphire method, which is one of them, provides convenience for doctors in hair transplantation and quick healing for patients. What makes this method special is the blade, made from sapphire these blades provide comfort in channelization operations. Before proceeding with the sapphire method patients’ expectations and full medical history is asked.
Once local anaesthetic is applied, grafts are collected, and hair transplantation is proceeded. Although the steel blades used in the classical FUE method are effective, they extend the healing time slightly because they open larger channels than sapphire blades. Sapphire blades are robust and high-quality materials which never loses its sharpness. It also opens smaller channels.
Advantages of Sapphire Method;
In the sapphire method, the channels can be opened smaller, allowing more frequent and close planting, it does not damage other hair follicles. It also provides a more controlled operation as it reduces vibration during the incision.
This shortens the long healing time caused by tissue damage. It provides deep penetration to the roots thanks to its sharpness and pointedness, helping to achieve successful results even in patients with advanced hair loss. Since the incisions are smoother, the stage after hair transplantation is more comfortable for the patients. Blades in sapphire method are smoother and used sterile. In this way, it has no negative impact on blood circulation. The hair follicles hold on to the transplanted areas better because there is no deterioration in the tissues.
The blades, which allow frequent and close planting, provide the amount of hair according to the patient’s wishes. In addition, transplanted hair, gives a very natural appearance. Sapphire blades use less subcutaneous liquid injections than metal blades. Thus, it prevents the formation of scars on the skin and protects against infection. Almost every method is effective in hair transplantation. However, those who are perfectionists and aesthetics prefer to use the Sapphire technique.
