DHI Hair Transplant
Injecting extracted hair follicles that are obtained with FUE into the skin with the help of a pen is called the Implanter Pen Technique, or DHI (Direct Hair Implantation). This is a painless method with quick recovery.
Extracted follicles are placed into pens. The physician determines the depth and direction of the pen before injecting the hair into the skin. After the needle is withdrawn, the follicle remains under the skin.
With the help of these pens that are smaller than 1 millimeter, it is possible to transplant follicles between already present hair without having to shave it first and without any marks.
What are the Advantages of the Pen Method over the Classic Method?
The classic transplant method consists of making slits in the skin using a scalpel or a needle. Extracted follicles are then placed into these slits using a pair of forceps. The incisions need to be large enough to accommodate the incoming follicles; however, larger incisions tend to leave more visible scars after recovery. This will not only spoil the natural looks but will also give away having had a hair transplant.
Whereas with the pen method;
• It is possible to transplant more follicles in the same unit area.
• It is easier to determine the direction of the hair follicle. This makes it possible to obtain a more natural look.
• There is no requirement of creating recipient sites in advance. Hence, the existing hair will not be damaged.
• There will be less bleeding since there is no need to create recipient sites, and the tissue will heal faster with no scarring.
• Hair does not need to be trimmed prior to the operation.
• Tissue vitality is preserved.
• Hair follicles are less likely to sustain damage.
• It is easier to obtain a more natural look with more transplanted hair follicles.
• Tissue trauma is less likely.
