What is DHI Hair Transplant?
DHI Hair Transplant is the process of extracting hair follicles from the donor area via utilizing a micro motor and then transplanting them into the receipt site using a pen-like device that contains a hollow needle. The first thing that comes into mind when we say DHI is usually the FUE method, but there are actually some differences between the 2 methods.
What Are The Differences Between DHI Method And The Classic FUE Technique?
DHI method enables the hair transplant to be performed without shaving the head. Hair follicles are transplanted in about 1-2 minutes after the extraction process so they only remain outside the body for a very short time period. It is easier to transplant between hair strands if the patient has nonbalding areas on his/her scalp. It is possible to achieve higher density of hair, especially when the area to be transplanted is not spacious.
What Are The Disadvantages Of DHI Method?
The operation lasts longer when compared to the classic FUE technique. As the method requires precision of the procedure, more attention and attentiveness is needed which, as a result will raise the overall cost of the operation. Since the process of opening the microchannels to transplant the extracted hair follicles is different from the classic FUE technique, it is important for operation to be performed by a specialist with in-depth knowledge and vast experience. As the microchannels are opened one at a time in the DHI method, if the surgical team is not experienced enough, inaccurate insertion angles may be created.
