DHI hair transplant is a technique used in hair transplant operations. This method is often compared to FUE method. Although the main idea behind two procedures is the same, the application methods are different.
FUE method is the most popular hair extraction methods in hair transplant sector. However, when this method is applied, hair grafts are kept outside for a long time. In some cases, this may create a negative effect on some hair grafts. On the other hand, when the DHI method is applied, these hair grafts are implanted within 1 or 2 minutes. This decreases the chance to harm hair grafts.
What Is DHI Hair Transplant?
DHI means direct hair transplant. In DHI hair transplant method, hair grafts are collected from the donor area with special micro-cut motor devices. Then, these grafts are implanted with special pens called CHOI pens. By using these pens, Micro Canals are opened on the scalp. Later, grafts are implanted into these Micro Canals.
The recovery process is the same as the FUE method. One of the downsides of this method, the number of grafts that can be implanted is limited. Doctors can implant at most 2.500 grafts in this operation. Therefore, when more hair grafts are needed, this method is unsuitable.
Is DHI Hair Transplant Successful?
When made by an expert doctor and team, DHI has successful results. This method requires high precision during Micro Canals opening stage. Therefore, a doctor who performs this hair transplant should know all the details about the procedure. The important thing during this hair transplant is to implant hair grafts with correct angles.
After approximately one year, the hair will start to grow like natural hair. During recovery, all instruction of the doctors should be followed. During the first couple of months, recommended and prescribed medication should be taken. These steps will accelerate the recovery process and ensure successful results.
