What is Sapphire Hair Transplantation?
The most widely used hair transplant technique worldwide is FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). This technique consists of the stages of harvesting hair follicles, creating channels, and implanting the collected follicles, known as grafts, into the opened channels.
One phase of the FUE technique involves creating channels, and to minimize tissue deformation and allow for maximum density of channel creation, special pens with sapphire-tipped blades have been developed. This implantation model, known as Sapphire FUE, is an FUE procedure that utilizes pens with tips made from real sapphire.
How is Hair Transplantation Performed with Sapphire Technique?
In the Sapphire FUE hair transplant technique, hair follicles are still harvested using the FUE method. However, the channels in the area where hair transplantation will be performed are created not with steel but with a pen-shaped sapphire gem.
Sapphire tips allow for the creation of much smaller, smoother, and denser microchannels in the transplantation area compared to steel. Micro-level channel creation minimizes tissue deformation and reduces scabbing. As a result, the scalp heals rapidly after the procedure, leaving no visible scars. Moreover, these microchannels opened with Sapphire FUE hair transplantation allow for the dense and natural alignment of hair follicles during implantation. Thanks to this technique, individuals experiencing hair loss can achieve hair that is indistinguishable from their own.
Sapphire FUE hair transplantation can also be combined with other methods that enhance comfort and patient satisfaction, such as sedation-assisted hair transplantation and shave-less hair transplantation.

Am I a Suitable Candidate for Sapphire Hair Transplant?
All men and women between the ages of 20 to 60 who have a sufficient number of hair follicles in the donor area can regain their lost hair through the Sapphire FUE hair transplant technique.
Sapphire FUE hair transplantation is a permanent solution for typical hair loss patterns such as receding hairlines, hairline recession, hair loss at the crown, or even diffuse thinning, in addition to being applicable in cases of severe hair loss over a broad area.

Frequently Asked Questions
Sapphire hair transplantation is generally suitable for people who are experiencing hair loss and considering hair transplantation. However, your suitability should be evaluated depending on your hair structure, health status and other factors.
Sapphire hair transplantation, which is one of the popular hair transplantation methods of recent times, is a very easy and practical method. First of all, it is determined how much hair the person needs. Afterwards, local anesthesia is applied to the patient so that he does not feel the pain in the head area. Then, with the help of a sapphire-tipped tool, tiny channels are opened on the scalp. It is aimed to achieve a more natural appearance thanks to the tiny channels. Hair transplantation is performed on these channels opened on the scalp one by one.
After transplantation, the hair is expected to cling to the scalp. This process will be easier as the sapphire-tipped tool is applied. Because the small channels that are opened close quickly, allowing the hair follicles to quickly cling to the skin. This is an advantage in the rapid development of the process.
The sapphire tip, which has a smooth surface and durable structure, creates less vibration when used during hair transplantation. Therefore, tissue damage and shell formation are minimized.
Since the channels opened with the sapphire tip are smaller in size, the possibility of creating more channels arises. That naturally means more hair.
Sapphire hair transplantation, which gives better hair density, also provides a natural appearance.
Since edema is minimized after the application, patients have a more comfortable process after surgery.
Since the channels created during hair transplantation are very small, these channels are also easier to heal.
