What is ice sapphire hair transplant?

The ice technique allows the hair follicles taken during the operation to be placed in the recipient area without losing their function and without dying. When this important development is applied together with the newly developed Sapphire Blades, the operation gives the best result.

Advantages of Using Sapphire Blades in Hair Transplantation

  • The sapphire blade, due to its unique structure, creates less vibration when used during hair transplantation. Therefore, tissue injuries and crust formation are minimized.
  • Since the channels opened with the sapphire blades are smaller in size, more channels can be created. This naturally means more hair.
  • Sapphire hair transplantation, results in increased hair density, which also provides a natural appearance.
  • The occurrence of edema after the procedure is minimized, patients experience a more comfortable recovery after surgery.
  • The channels created by this technique are very small, these channels heal easily.
  • The steel plates lose their sharpness in the long run which might lead to loss of tissues during incision. On the other hand, sapphire blades are much firmer as compared to the typical steel blades and will not lose their sharpness easily.

  • Temporary hair loss: a completely normal process as mentioned above.

At the end of this consultation, a plan is arranged for the hair transplantation with the Sapphire technique.

Hairlines are drawn on the forehead and other areas, taking into account the shape of the patient's face and features, At this stage, the patient's desires and expectations have a big influence as well.

  • The third step: local anesthesia is given to the scalp, and the necessary amount of hair follicles are extracted from the donor area, which means approaching one step closer to actual hair transplantation using the sapphire technique.
  • Fourth step: After extracting a sufficient amount of hair follicles, the preparation of the recipient area begins.

The most important of these preparations is the opening of micro-channels on the micro-spots for hair transplantation using sapphire blades.

At this point, the patient is ready for the transplant.

  • Fifth step: In this final stage, hair follicles are transplanted.

 Hair follicles are transplanted one by one in an appropriate small channel, using sapphire tapered blades.
