Sapphire Fue Hair Transplantation

What is FUE Sapphire hair transplant?

Sapphire FUE is the ideal method in the field of hair transplantation. Indeed, FUE Sapphire is the most adopted and practiced method in hair transplantation. This technique can be summarized in three stages.

First, on a surface professionally numbed by local anesthesia, follicles (Grafts) are extracted from the donor area (The back part of the head – above the nape-) using a dedicated medical micromotor.

Then make small incisions in the scalp by Sapphire blades – hence the name of the technique-. This is the most important stage of the entire procedure. The incisions made by Sapphire tips make it possible to obtain the angle, direction and density that corresponds to the natural growth of the patient’s natural hair. This is the key step to have a very natural and satisfying result.

Finally, transplant the follicles already extracted thoroughly into the recipient part, that is, the transplant area. The Sapphire tips – which are precious stones in nature -, their antibacterial properties, the low risk of postoperative infections and the natural end result, make the FUE Sapphire technique, the most recommended and most practiced technique.

What are the benefits of FUE Sapphire hair transplant?

Although other techniques have been developed in recent years in the field of hair transplantation, the Sapphire technique remains the most recommended and used. This is for good reasons.

Indeed, the V-shape of the Sapphire tips makes it possible to make precise, tiny and clean incisions on the surface of the scalp. This is the major guarantor of a successful natural-looking transplant.

The smoothness of Sapphire blades when making incisions on the skin is also a major advantage. Unlike the old metal blades, Sapphire blades do not lose their sharpness with use during the procedure, this in turn causes much less damage to the skin tissues, resulting in painless, faster and safer healing and scarring.

The antibacterial characteristics that Sapphire blades have, mean that there is no risk of damaging the blood at the time of contact during the operation, as well as the risk of infections and postoperative pain is significantly reduced.

What to know before FUE Sapphire hair transplant?

True, as before any surgical intervention, it is necessary to be consulted by a specialist doctor. It is of major importance to follow the doctor’s instructions and advice to the letter if one wants to succeed in his FUE Sapphire transplant. It is likely that it will be mandatory to stop smoking, drinking alcohol, stopping the use of certain medications and anticoagulants. It is recommended to strictly adhere to these prohibitions, because, Smoking prevents blood flow from working properly, this in turn slows down the healing process. Alcohol affects the effectiveness of anesthesia, hence the graft loses its painless characteristic. When using anticoagulants, it can cause considerable bleeding during the procedure. That is why no prohibition should be neglected.

What to expect after a FUE Sapphire hair transplant?

The transplant is over. A bandage is placed in the donor area (the back of the head) and a band is placed around the head passing through the forehead in order to avoid potential slight swelling. It is important to mention that each patient reacts differently and unevenly to the mild postoperative effects of the transplant. That is, some effects may appear in some patients and may not appear in others. The main thing is to follow the postoperative instructions so that you can recover well. It is recommended during the first days after the operation to avoid any contact with the operated areas. It is also preferred to wear shirts with buttons, sleep in a semi-sitting position, observe and do not neglect postoperative hair care and avoid heavy physical activity. It is essential to avoid any friction and contact with the operated and sensitive areas the first few days.
