Technology is often advancing at a speed that is forcing minds. This progress has positive effects on all sectors, whether technology-related or not. Hair transplantation applications are among the industries that share this rapid advance in technology. Quality and naturalness are increasing day by day with the introduction of new techniques to the sector. The latest technology in this field is the FUE Method. Currently, the FUT method has been replaced by the FUE method in many centres. After the discovery of the FUE method, the most recent invention in this field is the application with sapphire blades. With the introduction of sapphire blades, the success of the FUE technique has multiplied and has been in high demand.
What is FUE Hair Transplantation with Sapphire Blade?
With the advancement in technology, there are new developments in hair transplantation techniques and hair loss treatments. Hair transplantation operations, which have progressed to a great extent and become a procedure performed with minimally invasive methods, have become their present state in parallel with the development of the instruments used. Today, the FUE method, which is one of the most modern hair transplantation techniques, which is widely applied, is thriving. This success has taken it a step further by using sapphire-blade special tools with sapphire blade FUE hair transplantation.
The process with Sapphire FUE
Sapphire is highly valuable when considered as a mine. Sapphire head is also used in the use of real sapphire tips. During this process, it is expressed by the use of specially produced sapphire tips instead of metal elites when grooving is performed during the hair transplantation session. The FUE method using the sapphire tip is not a separate method, but a kind of innovation falling within the scope of FUE only. It is an application developed in order to keep the channels to which hair follicles will be transferred to a minimum level than usual and thus to minimize the formation of scaling and healing process in this area. Thanks to this application, all the signs and possibilities that may be experienced after the hair transplantation process are entirely minimized. Therefore, it has become the most preferred application of the last period.
Advantages of using Sapphire Blade for hair transplantation
The Sapphire Blade is more advantageous compared to steel-tipped blades. Steel-tipped blades lose their sharpness over time, resulting in more tissue damage. However, sapphire does not lose its sharpness, hard, durable and smooth surface because it is crystal tissue damage and trauma is not in question. Sapphire tipped blades do not disrupt blood circulation and are anti-bacterial.
The retention of the transplanted hair follicles is significant for the successful and natural results of the hair transplantation. The channels opened with sapphire tipped blades do not impair the blood circulation and the quality of the tissue. Sapphire tipped blades allow micro-opening of the channels, significantly shortening the post-operative recovery time.
The use of sapphire blades in patients with metal sensitivity or metal allergy dramatically reduces the risk of sensitivity and allergy. Sapphire blades are anti-microbial and thus prevent the risk of infection.
Sapphire blade which started to be used in hair transplantation by proving itself in 2016 has been widely used in FUE technique and even in the recent period it has been called “Sapphire FUE hair transplantation”.
Difference between Sapphire FUE and Classic FUE
The only difference between sapphire FUE and classic FUE; It is the use of blades made of sapphire, not blades made of steel material during grooving. Sapphire is a precious crystal and is a much better element for making incisions because it doesn’t lose its sharpness.
The use of a sapphire blade in FUE technique has initiated an innovative era in hair transplantation. Since 2004, the globally accepted FUE technique has been one step further with the adaptation of the sapphire blades to this technique. Sapphire blades allow smaller channels to be opened than steel blades, which has also affected the healing process positively.
In hair transplantation, incisions in which hair follicles are placed (opening channels) are considered as the most important step for a successful operation. All determinants affecting the naturalness, such as the direction, density and angle of the transplanted hair follicles, are shaped by the success of the channel opening. Sapphire blades ranging from 1.0 to 1.3 and 1.5 mm allow smaller, closer and more grooving.
