What Is the Sapphire Percutaneous Hair Transplant?
When we look at hair transplant techniques, we see that there are quite many options today. The FUE, the Sapphire Percutaneous FUE and the DHI, are classic hair transplantation techniques and are the three most preferred techniques. Saphire Percutaneous FUE technique is one of the most reliable methods of hair transplantation.
This technique is also known as the Sapphire FUE hair transplantation. It is one of the most popular hair transplant techniques in recent years. It is also used for transplanting beards, mustaches and eyebrows. The fact that it is more comfortable for the patient, shorter recovery time and more flexible space to give direction to the hairs has made it much more popular.
How is The Sapphire Percutaneous Hair Transplant Performed?
The meaning of the word “Percutaneous” can be defined as “intradermalapplication”. The technique, called Percutaneous, is frequently used in surgical treatment of various disorders. Because with this technique, surgeons can access some organs through small channels under the skin. 6 years ago, the same logic with the study in Korea, by opening channels under the skin can be done for hair transplants and with more natural results being achieved. After that, this technique has developed rapidly.
The Percutaneous technique has become the most preferred technique in recent years to comfortably achieve fuller hair. Generally, the procedure is started with hair follicles being collected from the neck of the person. With the help of special needled devices made of real sapphire, hair is placed in three dimensional channels opened in the area where the hair to be transplanted. The process takes about 5-7 hours. After the third month of the transplant new hairs start to grow.
Why is it called the Sapphire FUE?
The similarities with the FUE technique are also high. Since the grooving tip is made of sapphire crystals, it is also called sapphire FUE and also referred to as the Percutaneous hair transplant.
There are some advantages and disadvantages of using the Sapphire Percutaneous technique. Let’s explain:
What Are the Advantages of The Sapphire Percutaneous Hair Transplant?
Today, this method is a highly preferred and successful technique. The method is also used for transplanting beards, mustaches and eyebrows, as it is for hair transplants too. However, the most common use is hair transplants. The advantages of Percutaneous hair transplants can be summarized as follows:
- Very low risk of edema
- More comfortable for the patient when compared to other techniques
- It is easier to angle the hairs and the result is more natural
- Small channels, the same size as the hair, is used in this technique and thus increases the number of channels opened and there is twice as much denser hair achieved in the transplant process.
Does the Sapphire Percutaneous Technique Have Disadvantages?
The main disadvantage of this technique is its price. The fact that it requires much more expertise, the number of hair experts performing this technique is few and the fact that the technique is very laborious for the expert doing the procedure has caused its price to be higher than other techniques. Furthermore, the surgical knives used are very expensive.
Other Hair Transplantation Techniques and The Percutaneous Technique
The biggest difference of this technique from classical hair transplant methods is that it is made by opening round incisions. Thus, the grooved channels provide a suitable base for much fuller hair growth. In addition to grooving, hair follicles are taken and placed in the holes, as in the other transplanting applications, the Percutaneous method is performed using the FUE method. In FUE, the hair follicles to be placed in the balding area are planted in straight incisions in the slit of the channels, while in the Percutaneous technique, due to the special shape of the needle the planing is done in round incisions.
What is the Difference Between the FUE Hair Transplant Technique and the Sapphire Percutaneous Hair Transplant Technique?
The difference between the FUE technique and the percutaneous technique results from the grooving method. In addition, the transplanting process and other processes are similar. When the hair transplant is done with the FUE technique, the channels opened for the hair roots are flat. However, the channels are round when the Percutaneous technique is used for hair transplantation.
Round Channels are Important!
In hair transplants, the roundness of the hair root channels provides an important advantage. Thus, it is easier to give direction to the hair roots. The opening of the channels in a flat or rounded shape depends on the shape of the blade used. In classic FUE, horizontal and vertical opening of channels are used, the knife uses an angular blade. In the Percutaneous technique, the feature that provides the three-dimensional opening of the channels is a triangular blade.
Which is the Right Hair Transplant Method?
As mentioned above, hair transplant techniques fall under four headings. If you are looking for the best method of hair transplantation; Let’s underline that the best result is the most one that is suitable with your hair follicles. This can only be understood by a preliminary examination. The physician will advise you on the appropriate technique to be used. Research shows that the percutaneous technique is more positive in some ways. These can be listed as follows:
- Faster healing process, since the sapphire blades used are biocompatible.
- A more fuller hair transplant is achieved since the channels in the planting area are opened as round incisions instead of straight incisions.
- A more natural appearance due to smaller hole openings and the round structure of the holes being more suitable for the growth of the hair follicles.
