Direct Hair Implant (DHI)

MAVI TOURS - Medical Tourism

DHI is another advanced and latest hair transplant technique similar to FUE, but it has its unique characteristics. Here's an overview:

Graft Extraction: DHI, like FUE, involves the extraction of individual hair follicles from the donor area. However, in DHI, a specialized tool called the Choi Implanter Pen is used. This pen has a diameter of 1 mm or less and is designed to create tiny incisions and simultaneously implant the extracted hair follicles.

Implantation Process: The key distinction of DHI is that it integrates the process of creating recipient site incisions and implanting the hair follicles into these sites in a single step. The Choi Implanter Pen allows for precise control over the depth, angle, and direction of hair follicle placement.

Sensitivity and Control: The Choi Implanter Pen enhances the surgeon's sensitivity during the implantation process, providing more comfort and control. This can contribute to achieving a natural-looking hairline and optimal aesthetic results.

No Need for Pre-Created Channels: Unlike FUE, where channels need to be pre-created before implantation, DHI streamlines the process by combining these steps. The hair follicles are directly implanted into the scalp without the necessity of prior channel creation.

Recovery Time: The recovery time for DHI is typically similar to that of FUE.

In summary, Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) is a hair transplant method that utilizes a specialized implantation tool to simultaneously create recipient sites and implant hair follicles. This technique offers precise control for a natural appearance.

Which Procedures are Right for Me?

DHI, being newer, is often recommended for patients under 35 due to higher success rates in less advanced hair loss cases. FUE is considered safe with minor side effects, making it suitable for broader age groups. DHI allows preference-based customization of hair growth direction and dimensions, without requiring canal cuts. FUE covers larger areas, and DHI provides a good density rate. Both procedures have a high success rate of 95%, ensuring safety and efficacy.
