DHI technique as a planting area is used for more regional hair loss. For example; If your hair has been lost due to scarring, alopecia or other skin diseases, transplantation can be performed on these areas with the DHI method. In the FUE technique, larger areas are planted.
As the number of grafts, 1500-2000 grafts are transplanted in the DHI method. In the FUE method, on average, 4000 grafts can be transplanted in one session.
There are shorter recovery times in the DHI method after the operation. There is also less bleeding. In the FUE method, there is a little more to what we said.
In terms of duration, the FUE method takes 6-8 hours on average. Since the process is a little more sensitive in the DHI method, the operation time is slightly longer.
There is not much difference between FUE and DHI methods in terms of cost. Because in many ways it is the same equipment and cost.
This method, called the direct hair transplant method, was actually developed based on the FUE technique. Direct Hair Implantation, or DHI technique, is the process of transplanting the grafts taken from the donor area with a special pen called Choi Pen to the places to be planted in a very short period of time.
What makes this method special is that it has a special pen called Choi Pen. Thanks to this medical pen, both grafts can be collected and hair transplantation can be done.
The procedure begins by applying local anesthesia to the donor area. Hair follicles are taken one by one from the donor area with a special pen. Then it is kept in a special solution for a short time. The aim here is to keep the hair follicles alive until the collection process is over.
After the harvesting process is completed, it is the turn of the planting process. Sowing is performed again with the same pen, but this time with a different apparatus at the tip of the pen.
Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE Technique, is performed by a device called a micromotor. The process starts with shortening the hair in the donor area to 1 mm.
In other words, unlike the DHI method, the donor area is shaved in the FUE method. The purpose of this process is to ensure that the hair follicles are taken more easily with the micromotor.
The donor area and the area to be transplanted are anesthetized with local anesthesia. With the help of a device called a micromotor, hair follicles are taken from the scalp. Sowing is also performed with the same device.
Transplantation is performed with the same device towards the direction of hair growth. In other words, while a micromotor device is used in the FUE method, a special pen called Choi Pen is used in the DHI method.
While the hair is not shaved in the DHI method, the donor area is shaved in the FUE method.
The DHI method takes longer than the FUE method. Because the hair follicles are taken one by one.
In terms of recovery time, the recovery time is shorter in the DHI method.
There are some examples from our works about both DHI and FUE.
