DHI Hair Transplantation
DHI hair transplantation is a minimally invasive hair transplantation technique. DHI hair transplantation i.e. Direct Hair Implantation® is a modern hair transplantation technique developed by the FUE sub-group. It is powered by the triple synergy (technology, teamwork and technique).
What is DHI?
DHI hair transplantation is a hair transplantation technique that provides close to 100% natural-looking results and uses the most advanced extraction and implantation instruments with a diameter of 1 mm for faster healing. It causes minimal damage to the hair follicles and ensures a fast healing process.
A team consisting of the most trained and experienced doctors and health professionals is formed for this procedure. Only specially trained and certified health personnel specialized in this area by LHRTA and the major universities in Europe can carry out the procedures.
What are the characteristics of DHI hair transplantation?
DHI hair transplantation is the most advanced hair transplantation technique. At the beginning of the century it became the latest technique that evolved out of the rigid FUT-Strip technique. It was developed by the team who introduced the FUE technique. In 2010, research in hair transplantation led to the development of Direct Hair Implantation (DHI), and today, Direct Hair Implantation® has been widely performed worldwide as a technique that makes patients’ hopes and expectations come true.
With DHI hair transplantation or Direct Hair Implantation, the hair follicles are individually placed in sparse areas on the scalp. Each hair follicle is placed in a certain direction, angle and depth, providing 100% natural results and maximum applicability thanks to DHI-patented instruments. The transplanted hair follicles continue to grow throughout a person’s lifetime and do not fall out again.
The entire procedure is carried out by doctors all over the world who are trained and certified by the DHI Hair Restoration Academy of London with specialty in hair restoration, under strict DHI quality standardization protocols set up to achieve excellent results every time.
What are the advantages of this technique?
Fully safe: Strict protocols are applied to all processes and at all levels to guarantee 100% safety
Natural results: Full control of the depth, direction, and insertion angle of the hair grafts ensures 100% natural results.
Painless: Small disposable instruments with a diameter of 1 mm or less are used for extraction, i.e. hair follicle collection, and placement.
Maximum usability guaranteed: The graft viability rate is above 90%, while the industry’s average ranges from 50% to 90%.
Only performed by expert surgeons and hair specialists: Transplantation process is carried out by hair transplant specialists trained and certified by the DHI Academy.
Lifetime growth guaranteed: Only healthy hair follicles which are genetically designed to grow for lifetime are chosen and transplanted.
How is it applied?
During the extraction of the hair follicles, each hair follicle is extracted one by one from the donor area using a specially designed disposable instrument with a diameter of 1 mm or less. The follicles are then preserved at a certain temperature and after placement, in a solution that improves the quality of the grafts without separating, cutting or generally touching them.
In the insertion step, the hair follicles are implanted directly into the area where the hair loss occurs, using a patented tool called DHI Implanter which has a diameter of 1 mm or less, without forming a hole or slot.
With DHI hair transplantation, full control of the placement depth, direction and angle of each graft ensures 100% natural results and maximum applicability. Transplanted hair never falls out and lasts a lifetime.
The advantages of DHI hair transplantation technique:
• With DHI hair transplantation, patients do not have to shave their head completely before the procedure if they wish.
• Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) treatment is suitable for both male and female patients.
• In most operations, patients can go back to work the next day after the session.
• In cases of excessive hair loss and when the hairs on the back of the head are not sufficient to cover the recipient area, it is possible to use face and body hair.
• Since the implanted hair will not fall out, a long-term medication is not required. However, medications are recommended to prevent thinning and loss of existing hair.
It takes 12 months to see complete results and full hair growth, but results including anterior hairline treatment become visible within two months.
Why DHI technique is the best?
Unlike other hair transplantation methods – such as FUE and FUT (Strip) – with Direct Hair Implantation, there are no cuts or holes in the recipient area. The hair follicles are implanted directly into the area with the patented DHI Implanter tool. This allows full control of the depth, direction, and angle of placement of each graft. As opposed to other hair transplantation methods, DHI or Direct Hair Implantation method does not include scalpels, receiving incisions or stitches. Follicular hair units are extracted one by one using a specially designed disposable instrument with a diameter of 1 mm or less to avoid trauma to the area.
With DHI Direct Hair Implantation, there is no transformation of hair follicles to avoid the risk of necrotic debris and also to avoid the effects of being out of their natural environment for a long time. Instead, the hair follicles extracted with DHI Direct Hair Implantation are placed directly and maintained at a certain temperature and in a solution that increases their growth after placement. It is performed by surgeons and teams specialized in the field. Provides 100% safety, natural results, maximum applicability and lifelong growth every time.
