The Most Preferred Hair Transplant Technique: FUE

In the FUE technique, the channels in the area where hair transplantation will be performed are opened with real sapphire ore instead of steel tips. Sapphire tips allow the opening of smaller, smoother and denser microchannels than the steel tip in the planting area. Micro-opening of the channels minimizes tissue deformation and reduces crusting. Thus, after the application, the scalp heals quickly and no visible scars remain.

Microchannels opened with sapphire tips allow the hair follicles to be planted in accordance with the natural direction of growth and in a frequent manner. Thanks to this technique, those who experience hair loss have natural hair that cannot be distinguished from their own hair.
