Percutaneous Hair Transplant

The journey to natural hair

The medical instrument for the percutaneous hair transplantation

The percutaneous hair transplant is a technique designed for people with thin hair.

It is the origin of modern transplantation methods.

Today, however, more modern and effective procedures such as the Sapphire hair transplant and the DHI technique are replacing this method.

Percutaneous Hair Transplant the procedure in detail

In a percutaneous hair transplant, sharp steel blades are used to open the channel. When this technique was developed, the search for a natural result was, for the first time, put in the foreground.

This focus enabled the method to deliver good results and to dominate the market for years.

However, percutaneous hair transplantation is only suitable for fine hair. It does not provide satisfactory results on other hair structures.

The Percutaneous Technique Is Ideal For

The percutaneous hair transplant is ideal for filling in the temples or the hairline.

Thanks to the optimally determinable angle, the grafts are inserted in their natural growth direction, thus ensuring good results.

However, this procedure is only suitable if you have extremely fine hair. For medium to thick hair, we use the DHI hair transplant or the Sapphire technique.

If bald patches have appeared on your head and your hair loss is bothering you, the percutaneous method is an effective solution.

With percutaneous hair transplantation, you gain self-confidence and a positive attitude towards life.

However, the procedure can only be used on patients with fine hair and is not possible without shaving.

Compared to the Sapphire or DHI method, the percutaneous hair transplant also has a long healing period of about 13 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is special about the percutaneous technique?

The special feature of percutaneous hair transplantation is that a pointed needle is used to open the hair channels. This makes it easy to determine the direction of the growth of the grafts and the result has a natural appearance.

Is the procedure dangerous?

No. This is a minimally invasive procedure. You can leave our clinic the same day. Thanks to the expertise of our teams, the percutaneous hair transplant is considered low-risk.
