What is sapphire blade?

Tissues should not be harmed and blood circulation should not be deteriorated while these canals are opened. For this purpose, “blades with sapphire tips” are used to open the canals at Kolan Hair Transplant Center.

Advantages of Sapphire blades
  • Sapphire, which is a very solid crystal, does not lose its sharpness; therefore, no tissue loss develops when canals are opened.
  • It is antimicrobial.
  • Sapphire blades increase the survival of grafts after the transplant procedure.

In this method, hair follicles are extracted using micromotor with FUE technique and special sapphire tips are used instead of metal slit to open canals. Thanks to these tips, smaller micro canals can be opened and thus, recovery period is shortened.

Stages of Sapphire FUE
  • Hair transplant plan
  • Determination of recipient areas
  • Local anesthesia and harvesting
  • Preparation of the recipient area and opening the canals
  • Placement of grafts

Grafts which are harvested from donor area are carefully placed into canals that are opened with sapphire blades one by one.
