What is Sapphire FUE? That’s a great question but there isn’t a simple answer. This is because “sapphire FUE” isn’t just one thing. Sapphire FUE is several things and while each part is different the sum of the parts is not what it seems.
Sapphire FUE Claims
Let’s look at what clinics that offer Sapphire FUE claim are the benefits.
Almost all of the websites that offer Sapphire FUE claim that sapphire blades are antimicrobial or have antibacterial properties.
Sapphire blades are smaller than stainless steel blades. This insures that incisions are made with greater accuracy.
The use of sapphire blades means less tissue damage.
The anatomy of the sapphire blade allows hair transplant surgeons to inject less tumescence, which is a special fluid used to lift the skin from the bone.
Sapphire is harder and more durable than stainless steel blades. SS blades become dull and damage tissue more.
No neighbouring follicles are damaged.
It does not induce allergic reactions like stainless steel can.
The greater effectiveness of this method is due to the blades making smaller channel openings, thus allowing more dense transplantation.
It’s highly unlikely for the follicles to become dislodged after the hair transplantation.
Sapphire FUE is different than “classic” FUE.
