The sapphire hair transplant is suitable if you suffer from androgenetic hair loss and bald spots have already formed on your head or you have a receding hairline.

Since the sapphire technique uses fine and antibacterial sapphire blades, the process enables a high hair density of 120 grafts per cm².

The process ensures a perfectly natural result and can also be used for treatments on your hairline or beard.

The Sapphire Hair Transplant Process in Istanbul

In the 4 steps of your sapphire hair transplant, your hair follicles are first prepared, then removed, stored and finally transplanted. Each individual step is carried out by a dedicated team.

Dr Balwi and his experienced team are absolute specialists in the field of the sapphire method, so that you will get a perfect result after your treatment.

Step 1: NEO FUE Treatment

Your sapphire hair transplant starts with the exclusive NEO FUE developed by Dr Balwi. The set will be sent to you in advance of your treatment.

The vital serum is applied to the donor and recipient area with the derma roller in order to optimally prepare your hair follicles for the treatment and to increase your final growth rate to up to 98%.

Step 2: Harvesting the Grafts

Dr Balwi and his team use the FUE technique to harvest your grafts. This is the most effective method for graft harvesting and forms the basis for your hair surgery.

The technique is precise and preserves your donor area. This is because with the Follicular Unit Extraction each graft is removed individually. This in contrast with the outdated FUT method where entire strips of skin are removed.

Step 3: Storage & Enrichment

The next step consists in storing and enriching your harvested grafts in a special nutrient solution. This is important because your hair follicles are separated from the blood cycle after their removal.

Storage in a biotin rich solution provides the grafts with important nutrients and prepares them for the transplantation. This step is the cornerstone to achieve a perfect end result.

Step 4: Transplantation Using the Sapphire Technique

Before your grafts are finally inserted, micro channels are opened with a fine sapphire blade.

The V-shaped openings make it possible to control the angle of the grafts and give them a natural looking direction.

With the sapphire technique, your hair canals are placed close together. This not only ensures exceptional precision, but also achieves a density of 120 grafts per cm².

What Is Special About the Sapphire Technique?

The Sapphire technique uses sharp and particularly strong sapphire blades. The channels are thus opened in a V-shape with great precision. Sapphire also has antiseptic properties, so that the healing phase is very short (only 10 days).

Is the Sapphire Hair Transplant Right for Me?

Due to its special features, the Sapphire method is primarily suitable for people with a medium to thick hair structure. If your hair has these characteristics, the result will be optimal. Our experts will advise you during a personal consultation.

Is One Session Enough to Achieve a Perfect Result?

A single procedure is usually necessary to achieve the desired result, but this obviously depends on the condition of the donor and recipient areas. Your personal hair analysis will tell you whether one treatment is sufficient for you.
