Hair transplant techniques in women
Follicles are picked in a very simple way from the donor area, to be grown one by one directly, through a device called choi pen that helps in giving high density due to the implanting the follicles closely from each other.
Sapphire technique is carried out in the same steps as FUE, with hair follicles selected one by one from the donor area via Micro Motor, then grown in the receiving area by opening small channels in bald places. But FUE is distinguished by the fact that its medical blades are made of rubies, a gemstone that prevents any damage to the scalp during surgical incisions. The process requires about (6-8) hours, through which up to (5,000) bulbs are implanted.
