The Sapphire Hair Transplant Method
The Sapphire Hair Transplant method is a specially designed hair transplant procedure that removes hairs individually from the donor’s head using a hollow needle. By using the sapphire blades, the surgery is minimally invasive by making the incisions much finer and precise. The procedure is simple and can be done in a few sessions depending on the amount of hair you need to transplant. The recovery time of this procedure is less than seven days.
The Sapphire Hair Transplant requires three steps. Firstly, doctors need to prepare the donor area. This means the donor area must be shaved, leaving the approximate length of 1 or 2 mm. The next step is to inject the donor area with an anaesthetic to numb the area. Once the anaesthetic kicks in, the hair follicles are ready to be extracted. A micro punch is used to remove the hair follicles – the diameters are between 0.6 to 0.8 mm. This process is delicate as the punch has to penetrate the skin to reach the hair follicle situated in the dermis and hypodermis. After making contact with the hair follicle, the grafts are carefully selected and chemically treated. The last step is to do the hair transplant, taking the extracted hair and inserting it into the skin of the area marked for the transplant.
