One of the most popular hair transplant techniques is the Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE. The goal of the FUE procedure is to get the thick and resilient hair follicles from the back of the head and the ears, which are resistant to androgens, the main cause of alopecia in men.
At LaBella Clinic’a this procedure is performed with the use of a special type of blade called a sapphire blade. The use of this technique is very popular due to its natural-looking results. Although it’s not a new technique, the use of the sapphire blade technology is an innovation that’s already proven to be very reliable.
Surgeons in LaBella Clinic’a use no needle anesthesia which is a non-invasive anesthetic procedure that uses a high-pressure jet to deliver lidocaine to the subdermal region. It provides effective pain relief during hair transplant procedures since it is administered right before the final anesthesia injections, thus reducing the pain by at least 70%.Following local anesthesia, the hair follicles are extracted from the donor area using a micromotor and micro punches ranging in sizes from 0.6mm, 0.7mm and 0.8 mm.
Sapphire FUE vs Steel Blade FUE
Sapphire blades usually help in minimizing scab formation and opening smaller channels within the transplanted area.
Compared to the conventional steel blades, the use of the FUE allows for more dense and natural hair transplantation. Channels play a vital role in the success of a hair transplant. They can affect the angle at which the hair grows, the density of the hair, and the direction of the hair growth.
Laser Light Therapy
Laser light therapy (LLLT) is a popular option for people who are receiving partial or full hair transplant. Commonly performed 1 day after the hair transplant procedure, laser light therapy will stimulate the natural healing process ensuring a faster recovery and a much better result overall.
