Differences Between DHI and Sapphire FUE Methods

What are the Differences Between DHI and Sapphire FUE Methods?

In DHI Choi and Sapphire FUE techniques, hair follicles (grafts) are collected from the donor area with the same process. After loosening with the help of micromors using the homogeneous crossover method, the grafts collected one by one with forceps. The differences between the methods start from this point.

Sapphire FUE: It is a state-of-the-art method that is the most developed of the Fue methods and gives the most natural result.
  • It is designed with tips produced from real sapphire, which is a very valuable mine, by opening even smaller micro-canals on the area where the hair grafts will be implemented, to accelerate the healing process and the formation of minimal scabs.
  • As the sapphire tip has an asymmetrical shape, the canals opened are not straight. In this way, the hair grafts under the skin are protected from damage.
  • Since very thin canals are opened and Sapphire is a type of mine, it has antibacterial properties and shortens the recovery time.
  • More frequent transplanting with the sapphire tip makes it possible to apply this technique for patients with more advanced hair loss.
  • Since the opened canals are very compatible with the hair grafts, they are transplanted with the most natural angle and there is no possibility of the roots coming out of place or changing the angle settings.
Dhi Choi: Graft collecting process is the same as Sapphire FUE method. The differences between the two methods occur after this point.
  • In DHI hair transplantation, more dense transplantation can be applied, especially in hair transplantation in narrow areas.
  • In DHI hair transplantation, in areas where the hair is not completely shed, it can be transplanted more easily between the grafts.
  • The collected grafts are placed one by one on the Choi implanter surgical pen tips, the thickness of which varies between 0.6 and 1 mm, the grafts are transplanted directly.
  • Choi pens have a needle at the tip and this needle has a hollow structure in the form of a canal. Hair grafts are transplanted into the skin after the needle is inserted into the skin.
  • As the canal is not opened, it is possible to plant more tightly and the success rate is high. However, it is a more arduous technique that requires experience and expertise. Grafts can be damaged when placing them in the Choi pen, and if the appropriate depth and angle is not provided while planting, the planted grafts may not hold.
  • Unshaven transplantation can be applied with this method, only the donor area is shaved.
  • Since there is no incision, it minimizes the risk of bleeding as much as possible.
