DHI Hair Transplantation

State of the Art Technology in Hair Transplantation!

man hair transplantationDHI (Direct Hair Implantation) technique is the latest and most popular technique in hair transplantation. Hair follicles / grafts taken from the donor area with “Micro Motor” are placed in special pens called “Implanter Pen” with a diameter of 0.6 – 0.8 mm and these pens transplant the hair follicles directly under the skin. Thus, no stitches and scars are formed on the scalp.

Thanks to this latest technique, the incision is not made in the area to be planted, as in the canal technique, which increases the number of roots to be planted in cm², prevents skin damage and minimizes bleeding. The fact that skin damage and bleeding are at a minimum level speed up the healing process.

One of the biggest advantages of this method is that the hair follicles / grafts taken are shortened to stay out. So that it is ensured that the roots stay healthier and stronger. All hair can be transplanted without shaving thanks to DHI technique. It is enough just to shave the donor area.

DHI Beard Transplant

In general terms, DHI Beard Transplantation is the process of filling the gaps in the beard or creating a new beard in patients without beard.

Two methods can be used for this process:

  • Beard transplantation process by collecting from beard follicles
  • Beard transplantation process by collecting from hair follicles

Beard transplantation process by collecting from beard follicles

This method is generally applied to people with regional gaps in their beard or people who have scars caused by an accident. The roots taken from the beard adapt to the beard much more quickly. In this method, the number of grafts the patient needs must be provided under his chin.

Beard transplantation process by collecting from  hair follicles

This method is generally used for patients who are beardless or have too much regional spaces in their beards. Hair follicles taken from the nape part are transplanted one by one towards the direction of the beard with 0.6 mm diameter pens. Regardless of the method, the most important point in beard transplantation is that the beard roots must be separated into single grafts and kept in special solutions.

DHI Eyebrow Transplantation

It is applied for thickening the thin and damaged eyebrows, recreating missing eyebrows, filling the scar marks on the eyebrow. Hair follicles / grafts taken from the nape are placed in 0,6 mm pens and planted according to the direction of the eyebrows. The important point is that the hair follicles taken from the donor are planted in single grafts. A natural appearance is obtained in this way. If double or triple grafts are planted, it is definitely not possible to get a natural result. DHI technique should be preferred for eyebrow transplantation.
