Sapphire Fue Hair Transplantation

The Sapphire method is the latest development in the field of the FUE treatment method. This method means that the channels, where the hair grafts are placed, are made with a special instrument that has a sapphire tip. The sapphire tip is designed to open smaller channels for grafting in the treatment area. This while a steel blade is used in the classic Micro FUE method.

FUE performed with sapphire is not a new treatment, it is an innovation within the current Micro FUE treatment process. Sapphire is a precious gemstone and has the advantage of being extremely strong and scratch resistant. A sapphire point therefore never loses its sharpness, so that the channels can all be opened proportionally and more precisely compared to the classic Micro FUE method.

Channels have a major influence on the density, angle and growth direction of the implanted hairs. The correct and precise opening of the channels is decisive for achieving a natural result. For this reason, opening channels is considered to be the most important process for a successful FUE hair transplant.

Estenuvo likes to work on perfection, patient comfort and a good recovery. We recommend that all FUE patients have the procedure performed with the Sapphire Method.

What is the Sapphire Fue Hair Transplant?

At Estenuvo we use the Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant for hair transplants, this is the latest technological development in the field of hair transplants. The Sapphire Blade is made from a durable and antibacterial gemstone. The blade is of much better quality compared to the steel blade or coarse needles. The steel blade and needle can lose its sharpness and cause tissue damage and/or loss. The Sapphire method is designed to make smaller incisions.

Advantages of the Sapphire method can be explained as following:

– Promotes hair growth and density

– Faster recovery

– Less redness and scabs

Despite the high level of success, the classic FUE method is constantly evolving around innovative ideas and technologies. In recent years sapphire has gone a step further with the introduction of what is known as FUE. This is not an entirely new technique, but rather an improvement on the existing FUE method. The cost of hair transplantation is formed by the combination of many factors. Depending on the situation and circumstances of the persons, changes in costs may occur.

A sapphire hair transplant is performed almost the same as a regular FUE transplant. The difference between the two is reduced to the blade used in the channeling stage. While steel blades are used for this process in the classical FUE method, sapphire blades are used with this method. Gemstone sapphire blades are known for their sharpness, smoothness and durability. It is these features that enable the surgeon to create so-called microchannels.

How is Sapphire Hair Transplant done?

Which is performed using blades made of a precious gemstone called sapphire (diamond), is defined as the use of special sapphire blades instead of steel blades used by the well-known Micro Fue, while making incisions within the receiving zone. Sapphire hair transplant FUE is performed with sapphire blades. This is not a technique, it is an innovation development that implements a new process within the FUE method. The blades are designed to minimize crusting and speed up the recovery process.

Stages of Sapphire Hair Transplantation

FUE, which is produced from sapphire, a precious metal, is the use of a special sapphire tip instead of metal slit in the grooving phase of hair transplantation. FUE with sapphire tip is not a technique, it is an innovation applied in this method. By opening smaller micro channels in the area where the hair follicles will be transplanted, it provides minimal crusting and accelerates the healing process.

In FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) performed with a sapphire tip, hair follicles are taken one by one from the donor area with micro-tips of 0.6-0.7-0.8 mm in diameter by means of a micro motor under local anesthesia, the collected hairs are poured into the channels opened in the FUE method. is planted. Channels significantly affect the appearance of the hair. It also directly affects the angle, direction and frequency, so opening the channels is the most important step in the success of the surgery.

Micro channels are best opened with special sapphire tips. Hair follicles are planted in the opened channels. The channels opened with sharp, smooth and durable tips between 1.0-1.3-1.5 mm are in the size of the hair follicle, allowing the number of opened channels to increase and the hair follicles to be planted closer to each other.

Some hair transplant centers claim that 65-70 roots per cm² can be transplanted to people who come to the front hairline, so that they can achieve a more natural appearance. It is necessary to open a suitable channel for such frequent hair transplantation. It is not possible in FUE with a sapphire tip, either by applying the metal slit technique. The reason is the natural angle and direction that should be given to the hair. When 65-70 grafts are tried to be planted in the aforementioned square centimeter area, it will be impossible to plant these hairs with the natural angle and direction. The natural hair angle is 40-45 degrees. In such a planting, at the expense of providing density, the hair can be planted at very right angles, resulting in what is called grass man among the people.

Before Sapphire Fue Hair Transplant

Before Sapphire Fue Hair Transplant is a very important process that requires careful preparation. You should pay attention to the issues that your doctor tells you after the examination. It is important to follow these steps and strictly follow the instructions in order for the local anesthesia and operation to be successful and to have a high efficiency.

Differences Between Sapphire Fue Hair Transplant & Fue Hair Transplant

Advantages Sapphire Method compared to the classic FUE method can be explained as following:

– Designed to make smaller channels in the area to be treated, allowing more density during transplantation to be achieved in the same area;

– Minimal damage to the skin tissue, reducing the risk of complications and crust formation;

– Less crust formation and a faster healing process. On average, the scalp needs 5 days less time to heal compared to the classic Micro FUE method.

– Hairs grow out of your scalp from an angle of 40-45 degrees. The Sapphire Method instrument makes it easier to create this angle precisely and with minimal tissue damage.

Differences Between Sapphire Fue Hair Transplant & DHI Hair Transplant

It is a hair transplant technique also known as direct hair implantation. It involves the process of hair transplantation from hair follicles that are used with the help of special pins. The DHI technique is not a new hair transplant method. It is a technique that is applied and developed through the FUE method. It is preferred by many experts because it is an effective technique and can be applied in a short time. Specially produced DHI pens also play a major role in the choice of technology.

Hair transplantation methods are performed in three stages. Collecting grafts, i.e. hair that is behind the head (not shedding), opening a channel in the area where the hair transplant will be performed Planting the grafts on the head In the DHI technique, except for grooving, other operations are applied in order.

While DHI Hair transplant is applied like this, isn’t the main difference still visible? So let’s explain it like this. The most fundamental difference between these two procedures can be explained as the way the procedures are implemented. While it is not necessary to shave the area to be transplanted in the DHI hair transplant technique, the area to be transplanted is shaved in the Sapphire fue hair transplant procedure.

Sapphire Fue Hair Transplant Cost

Sapphire FUE costs are calculated using the same formula as other hair transplant costs. The cost of each hair transplant differs from one another and varies from person to person.

In principle, the size of the area to be transplanted and the hair transplant technique to be used form the cost amount. Subsequently, your doctor’s experience and where the procedure will be performed will continue by increasing the cost.


It is quite difficult to say “this technique is better than the other” among two options. A distinction can be made in this regard; In Sapphire FUE technique, hair transplantation can be performed more efficiently on larger areas, while in DHI hair transplant technique, a larger hair transplant operation can be performed on relatively smaller areas.

Almost anyone between the ages of 20 and 60 who does not have any health problems can benefit from the Sapphire FUE hair transplant method.
