Did you know that more than 85% of men experience thinning hair by the age of 50? Plus, other 50% of women will also experience hair loss over their lifetime, so it is a more common problem than most people tend to realise. This is why, at Vera Clinic, we are proud to offer our clients effective DHI hair transplants in Turkey at our state-of-the-art clinic. As you may be aware, there are several efficient options to treat hair loss, but DHI is an evolution of the standard technique used during a hair transplant in Turkey, offering full and dense results.
What is a DHI Transplant?
If you are considering undergoing a hair transplant treatment, then you may want to consider DHI hair transplants in Turkey, but you first must understand exactly what it is. Let’s start with the basics, like that DHI stands for direct hair implantation. But what does this mean exactly?
When it comes to hair transplant surgery, the two most common options are follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE). A DHI hair transplant is a modification of the FUE technique, which sees a surgeon removing follicles directly from the scalp to transplant in balding or thinning areas. In a FUE procedure, a surgeon will manually cut channels in your scalp before implanting hair follicles. However, in a DHI hair transplant, a specialized pen-shaped tool is used do both of these at the same time, making it a much more efficient procedure.
The DHI Procedure
As DHI hair transplants in Turkey are modified versions of the FUE treatment, they follow a similar procedure. A simple version of the procedure entails your surgeon removing hair follicles from an area of your scalp where there is healthy hair growth, usually the back of your head, and then implant these into balding areas. These healthy hair follicles will eventually grow new hairs, giving you a fuller head of hair.
Here is a breakdown of what you can expect from the best DHI clinic in Turkey:
- The surgeon will shave the head and apply local anaesthesia to numb the area.
- Next, using a special tool with a fine tip, the surgeon will extract hair follicles from the back of your head.
- The healthy hair follicles will be loaded into a ‘pen-shaped’ tool and directly implanted into the balding area of your scalp.
- Once this is complete, antibiotic cream and bandages are applied to all sites for optimal recovery.
