What is Sapphire Hair Transplantation?

Sapphire hair transplantation is the name given to fue hair transplantation, where state-of-the-art sapphire blades are used when opening canals.

What is Sapphire Knife?

Contrary to popular belief, sapphire blades are not produced from blue sapphire stone found in nature. Sapphire blades are made of a single crystal made of synthetic sapphire (al2O3 = aluminum oxide); this substance is hundreds of times harder than normal steel, so they retain their sharpness for a long time. Sapphire crystals are controlled at every stage of production in special machines and made into perfect blades.

How is sapphire hair transplantation applied?

In today’s world, where social media is very important, the increase of aesthetic concerns of individuals has led to a exponential increase in the number of aesthetic procedures. Sapphire hair transplantation, which is the most popular application of fue hair transplantation when it comes to men, is the most commonly used aesthetic procedure. The hair to be transferred in sapphire hair transplantation is first taken from the donor area of the person using micromotor by micro fue method. The use of micromotors allows for a larger number of grafts (follicular conit) from the donor area than the reception made using manual punch, making it possible to make sapphire hair transplantation results more frequent and more natural. Fue hair transplantation procedures performed using micromotor are also called “Micro FUE hair transplantation”.

After the reception process is finished, doctors use sapphire blades to open the channels at any angle, direction and frequency. This process is one of the most important stages of sapphire hair transplantation.

Then the sowing process begins until the third and final stage. In this process, the hair follicles taken from the neck are carefully opened by our surgeons using sapphire blades, micro incisions are planted in the canals and sapphire hair transplantation process is completed. With this method, which minimizes the damage to the tissue in the hair follicles during the transplantation phase, the healing process is very short. In addition, factors such as edema and wound that will occur during the healing process are seen at a minimum level with this method.

What are the Advantages of Sapphire Hair Transplantation?

The surface of sapphire blades is hard and smooth. Therefore, incisions made with sapphire blades are close to perfect and less tissue damage; The factor of smoother incisions (micro incisions) is very important for rapid recovery. Since sapphire blades have V-shaped tips, they allow our doctors to incision more often, allowing more frequent and more natural results from fue hair transplantation.

The angle of incisions made with sapphire blades can be adjusted better than in classical methods, adjusting the directions of transplanted hair is also very important for natural appearance.

Metal allergy is common in society, so the widespread use of sapphire blades affects the outcome of hair transplantation in these people in a very positive way. At the same time, since the surface of sapphire blades is smooth, the risk of infection is reduced due to the neglect of microbes to hold on to this surface.
