For this reason, the opening of the channels is considered to be the most important process for obtaining successful FUE results. The best possible way to open microchannels can now be achieved through the utilization of sapphire blades, hair follicles are then transplanted into these channels. The small incisions, which are at the same length of hair follicles, are created using sharp, smooth and durable sapphire blades varying in sizes of 1,0 -1,3 – 1,5 mm. As a result, more channels can be opened, enabling the hair follicles to be transplanted closer to each other.
Owing to its qualities such as a smooth surface with antibacterial properties, hardness, sharpness and durability, when using sapphire blades for the process of opening microchannels, vibration will be reduced thus, the risk of complications such as trauma and scalp tissue damage are also be reduced.
