What is Micro Sapphire DHI?

Dr. Acar at Cosmedica Clinic has developed Micro Sapphire DHI as the most advanced and successful method of hair transplantation in Turkey and the world today.

A Micro Sapphire DHI hair transplant involves the use of specialized and ultra-thin blades made from sapphire crystal to implant hair follicles.

Advantages of Micro Sapphire
DHI hair transplants

Extremely precise incisions

With the micro sapphire blade, the incisions are much finer and more precise.

Accelerated healing process

Smaller incisions heal faster, hurt less and have a lower risk of infection.

360° protection

Sapphire DHI Implantation provides full protection for hair grafts during transplantation

Natural and better density

99% success rate of hair grafts means thicker hair and a completely natural looking hairline.

Stages of a Micro Sapphire DHI hair transplant:

A DHI Implanter Pen


1. Follicular Unit Extraction

Similar to the Sapphire FUE method, hair follicles are harvested from the donor area one by one using advanced micromotors. Different types of punches are used for different hair types such as European, Asian and African-American.

2. Sapphire incisions

The sapphire microblade opens up hair canals. The cuts are more accurate and precise than with traditional steel tools. The risk of tissue damage and trauma is minimised and the healing process is faster.

3. DHI implanter pen

The grafts are implanted into the recipient area. The advanced Choi implanter pen provides full protection for the delicate hair grafts.

Micro Sapphire DHI vs. Sapphire FUE

The choice between Micro Sapphire DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) and Sapphire FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) depends on individual preferences, hair loss patterns, and desired outcomes.

Both hair transplant procedures offer unique advantages, and what may be considered “better” can vary from person to person. Let’s explore the key differences and benefits of each method to help you make an informed decision:

State-of-the-art technique

Micro Sapphire DHI

Technique: Micro Sapphire DHI is an advanced variation of the DHI method. The main difference is the use of Micro Sapphire blades for creating incisions before implanting the grafts.

Sapphire blades: Similar to Sapphire FUE, Micro Sapphire DHI uses Sapphire blades to create small and precise incisions. However, in this technique, the Sapphire blade is even finer, hence the name Micro Sapphire.

Advantages: Provides more control and precision during the implantation process, leading to natural-looking and densely packed results. Minimizes the handling of hair follicles, which may enhance graft survival. Micro Sapphire blade incisions heal even faster than regular Sapphire incisions.

Tried & tested

Sapphire FUE

Technique: In Sapphire FUE, individual hair follicles are extracted from the donor area using a microsurgical punch tool. The surgeon creates tiny incisions to collect hair follicles one by one. The extracted follicles are then transplanted into the recipient area with precision.

Sapphire Blades: Sapphire FUE utilizes specially designed Sapphire blades for making the incisions during the extraction process. These blades have a V-shaped cross-section, which aids in creating small and precise incisions, resulting in less trauma to the scalp and quicker healing.

Advantages: Minimally invasive procedure with no linear scarring, making it suitable for those who prefer to wear short hair. Faster recovery compared to traditional FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) method. Reduced risk of complications and post-operative discomfort.

Which one is better?

While Sapphire FUE is well-established and widely used, Micro Sapphire DHI is a newer and innovative method that builds upon the benefits of the traditional DHI hair transplant with the added precision of Sapphire blades. It may be particularly suitable for those seeking maximum density and natural hair growth.

Ultimately, the best approach is to consult with a qualified hair transplant surgeon who can assess your specific needs and recommend the most suitable technique based on your individual case.

How much does a Micro Sapphire DHI hair transplant cost?

When considering any medical procedure, it’s important to take into account the associated costs and the availability of the treatment. The same goes for Micro Sapphire DHI hair transplants. While the benefits and advantages of this procedure have been discussed in previous sections, it is crucial to assess whether it is an affordable and accessible option for those seeking a hair loss solution.

The cost of a Micro Sapphire DHI hair transplant can vary depending on several factors, such as the extent of hair loss, the number of grafts required, and the reputation and expertise of the clinic or surgeon performing the procedure. Generally, this type of hair transplant can range from $5,000 to $15,000 in the United States and other Western nations.

Availability of Micro Sapphire DHI is also a crucial consideration. Not every clinic or surgeon may offer this specific technique, as it requires specialized training and equipment. It’s worth noting that while the cost may seem high, the long-term benefits and increased self-confidence that can come with a successful hair transplant may outweigh the initial investment.

Here at Cosmedica, we are happy to be able to offer our patients all-inclusive Micro Sapphire DHI packages for as little as 2990€. What makes hair transplants, including the Micro Sapphire DHI technique, so affordable in Turkey is a combination of various economic, medical, and geographical factors, such as lower operating costs, a favorable exchange rate, government support, competition among clinics, a large number of procedures carried out and more.
