The differences between Sapphire FUE and classic extraction methods

It should be noted that FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction. Here, the hairs are removed individually from the donor area by the use of a hollow needle. It has a diameter of 0.6 to 0.9 mm and is driven by a fine micro motor.

In contrast to the previous methods, the sapphire FUE hair transplant is characterized by the use of sapphire blades. These have sizes of 0.8 to 1.5 mm. The specific size of the sapphire needle is adjusted according to the structure of the hair of each patient.

So far with classic hair transplant procedures, only U-shaped hair transplantation channels could be opened on the scalp. The revolutionary sapphire blade allows the opening of V-shaped canals. As a result those are smaller and leaves less tissue damage on the skin.

The hair follicles are then inserted into the channels with tweezers. By creating fine hair channels, the hairs become denser and in the correct direction of growth.

The advantages of this new hair transplantation method

If you have opted for a hair transplant, this innovative method will give you a lot of benefits. Since the channels of the hair follicles can be set much finer with this method, less bleeding occurs.

The risk of major rebleeding is thus significantly reduced, so that ultimately a hair transplantation according to the sapphire FUE method is considerably gentler for the patient. In addition, the use of the new sapphire blades, due to a reduced scab formation, effectively prevent the risk of infections occurring.

Moreover, the use of these sapphire blades is invaluable medically. On the one hand, this is due to the faster healing of wounds. Which at the same time leads to a reduction in postoperative pain and, on the other hand, to the concomitant reduction in the risk of infection.

Also in the cosmetic field, a FUE conducted with sapphire blades has advantages. This type of hair surgery allows fine-tuned implantation of the hair thus creating a more natural final result.

Thanks to the optimized opening the channels, the grafts retain their original growth direction after implantation and can not fail. Another important advantage is that the sapphire blades used ensure a higher density of the transplanted hair.

  • less pain
  • lower risk of infection
  • lower risk of rebleeding
  • better visible results
  • less scarring

Innovative research in the interest of our patients

The advantages listed above are the result of innovative research in the interest of the patient. Overall, the method of sapphire FUE hair transplantation is a more than positive progression of the FUE hair loss treatment.

Compared to the previously used needles, the sapphire blades are hard and smooth at the same time. At Biohair we choose exactly the blade that suits your individual hair structure. The nature of these sapphire blades allows to create the necessary channels for transplantation at an ideal angle of 40 to 45 degrees.

Through this hair transplantation technique, an increase in hair density of up to 30% can now be achieved in direct comparison to the older methods. The use of the new sapphire blades also makes wound healing 20% ​​faster.

Furthermore, statistically speaking, scarring after a FUE performed with sapphire blades is up to 10% lower. It has thus been shown that a good hair transplant depends on the quality of medical research.
