Recently there has been a further development of the FUE method: the sapphire percutaneous technique.
This method uses special sapphire FUE sapphire blades instead of a hollow needle. These particularly filigree blades are extremely hard and smooth. They are available in sizes from 0.8 to 1.5 and the doctor can choose a blade for the hair transplant that exactly matches the patient’s hair structure. The nature of the sapphire blade allows the surgeon to create the channels at exactly the right angle (40 to 45) to bring the grafts in the right direction. The sectional view is no longer U-shaped as with conventional FUE, but V-shaped.
With this new, innovative technique, which is the result of decades of experience and research, the removal and implantation of the grafts is particularly gentle.
