Sapphire FUE


Sapphire FUE in Turkey

Turkey continues to stand at the global vanguard of hair transplant technology, and the arrival of the FUE Sapphire technique in Istanbul is a further bold new development pioneered by prestigious hair transplant clinics such as SHIFT.

The innovative Sapphire FUE procedure provides aesthetically pleasing results with a faster and more comfortable postoperative recovery period than many other hair transplant techniques available in Turkey today.

What is Sapphire FUE?

Sapphire FUE is not a new hair transplant technique in itself. Rather, it is an innovation within FUE hair transplantation, which is a technique that has been in use since 2004. FUE is currently the most sought-after method in hair transplant clinics in Turkey and abroad.

How does Sapphire FUE differ from Classic FUE?

Sapphire FUE differs from ‘Classic’ FUE in the device used for opening the micro-channels. This is the most important stage of the hair transplant procedure, and the one which impacts most on the overall results. Whereas the ‘Classic’ FUE treatment involves using steel or titanium blades to open these micro-channels, the Sapphire FUE technique involves using sapphire blades.

What are the advantages of Sapphire FUE?

One of the main advantages of Sapphire FUE is that it speeds up the recovery process through allowing for a smoother bonding of skin surfaces, therefore minimising scab formation. This stems from the fact that the Sapphire technique involves opening smaller micro-channels than with ‘Classic’ FUE and other methods. Sapphire FUE also involves less swelling and faster tissue recovery, making for a more comfortable recovery period for the patient.

In addition to this, the sapphire material has natural antibacterial properties, which means that the risk of patients developing postoperative complications such as necrosis is far lower than with other hair transplant techniques available in Turkey today. The sapphire blade also implies a reduced level of vibration during the procedure, helping to minimise scalp tissue damage and potential trauma.

How does Sapphire FUE work?

The Sapphire FUE technique involves extracting grafts from the donor area at the back of the patient’s head, as happens with the ‘Classic’ FUE technique. The expert medical team will then use a sapphire instrument to open micro-channels ranging from 1.0 – 1.3 – 1.5mm in diameter, before implanting the grafts in these channels.

With FUE Sapphire, the channels are the same length as the hair follicles, meaning that the healing process is faster and there is less likelihood of disturbing the angle and position of the grafts. The sapphire tool also allows for denser transplantation, creating even more visually appealing results than other methods.
