Percutaneous Hair Transplantation in Turkey
Hair Transplantation has the typical stages of extraction, canal opening and implantation.
Percutaneous Hair Transplantation is a different method used for canal opening in the recipient area to treat hair loss or a receding hairline. In the percutaneous technique, the canals or the holes are opened by the special sapphire blades with superfine needles instead of slits and the holes have a round shape instead of a lateral one. This way, each hole will have precisely the same size as the diameter of the hair follicles which means each hole is very small and very tiny.
In the percutaneous technique, the extraction stage is the same with Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Hair follicles are taken one by one from the donor area. The implantation stage is the same again; the hair follicles are placed into the round canals opened by sapphire blades with superfine needles.
The Advantages of the Percutaneous Technique
Because all the canals share the same thickness and angles (just like each hair follicles will) in the recipient area, the percutaneous technique shows the best natural looking result. In Percutaneous Hair Transplantation, the hair follicles are firmly anchored in very tiny and round holes. That is why hair follicles do not have the risk of moving at all.
Another advantage is the fast healing period; just within 3-4 days, there will no longer be crust at the transplanted area.
