This technique is often considered as one of the newest technique of hair transplantation. This technique has been developed from the FUE technique, but unlike the FUE technique, the DHI transplantation procedure often requires the specialist to perform site creation and graft implantation simultaneously unlike the FUE technique. In this technique, implantation and extraction are combined as a part of a one or two-step process and the extracted hair follicles are embedded directly into the treatment area without having to create channel incisions in the donor area. This is possible because of the fact that specialist often used a device called the Choi pen to perform this procedure.
This technique is also commonly referred to as the Choi technique. The choi pen has a hollow needle that is connected to a tub and a plunger device. And since this procedure might result in severe pain and irritation, patients are often given sedatives. This technique does not cause too much bleeding and the hair transplanted often retain their lifespan. This procedure does not leave any known side effects or scars and this makes it possible for patients to return to their daily life after a short period of time.
The DHI hair transplantation technique can be used to get one of the most natural and hair transplantation successful results. The DHI hair transplantation techniques are capable of providing complete control of the growth direction, higher density, shortest recovery time and the highest growing yield in the business. This technique often involves a process to instantly transfer hair follicles from the donor region to the recipient area and providing adequate blood supply as fast as possible.
The methods and processes involved in the DHI hair transplantation technique are said to be inspired by the development of the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplantation technique, which is considered to be one of the most popular hair transplantation technique in the world, particularly Turkey.
Similar to the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplantation technique, the DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) hair transplantation technique involves the individual transfer of the hair follicles (Grafts) from the donor area to the recipient area of the patient. This technique enables you to specifically transfer extracted grafts to the balding area.
During the procedure involved in the DHI hair transplantation technique, hair follicles will be separated after extraction to be filled in a number of small implanters. The implanting device being used is the DHI pen, which is also commonly known as the Choi implanter. This implanter has a plunger device and a fine hollow needle on the tip to make the incisions and also put the graft at the recipient area. These Choi pens will be filled with hair follicles to make the incisions and also to embed the grafts at the recipient area.
The DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) hair transplantation technique is capable of proving patients with the most natural look and the greatest hair density. Also, the risk of having a scar as a result of the DHI hair transplantation technique is very low and there is no breeding in the implantation stage. The low risk of having a scar during this procedure is as a result of the fact that small tipped needles are being used. As a result of the fact the recovery time of this hair transplantation technique is very low, patients can go back to their daily routines quickly.
One of the most important benefits of the DHI hair transplantation technique is the volume. The volume of this procedure is about 40 to 60 grafts per square centimeter which is also about twice the amount of the grafts when compared to the strip or lateral hair transplantation technique. This volume allows the specialist to be able to cover a huge area in the balding region. This technique enables you to be able to transplant hair based on the natural growth direction hair. This makes it possible for the technique to be used in sensitive areas like the hairline in order to provide a more natural look and more successful results. This technique is also known to have adequate hair follicle survival rates.
The DHI hair transplantation technique is able to provide a reduced time of grafts remaining outside the body in order to ensure strong and healthy implantation of the grafts. This technique does not require the recipient area to be shaved. During the creation of the recipient area, there is reduced bleeding. There is also reduced trauma during graft handling which results in less damage to the blood supply in the implanted area.
The DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) hair transplantation technique is ideal for;
- Patients that are suffering from hair loss in the front hairline region.
- Patients that are suffering for eyebrows loss.
- People who need Beard or Moustache transplantation.
- Patients that are interested in hair transplantation techniques that do not require their hair to be shaved.
- Patients that are interested in getting thicker hair with higher density in their receding or balding area (only if the donor area is suitable and the recipient area is not large).
