Known with its smooth and durable structure, sapphire enables surgeons to create channels as they require. This way, success rate of the procedure also increases accordingly.

Channeling in hair transplantation is one of the most important stages of the procedure. Size of these channels must be exactly suitable with grafts. Smaller or larger channels may affect the final result of this procedure. Additionally, channels have to be created with suitable angles. Sapphire blades exhibit their difference right at this point. They provide much better results compared to traditional stainless steel blades. This way, success rate also increases.

Steel blades used in traditional methods can be blunt in time and efficiency may be accordingly lower. Even, this situation can cause unwanted tissue damage. For sapphire blades, on the other hand, such risk is not possible. These blades preserve their initial sharpness and structure for a long time. This way, tissue damage risk is also prevented and accordingly, risks of infection and other complications are also minimized.

Density in hair transplant is directly related with the amount of channels that can be opened. Sharp and smooth structure of sapphire blade enables those channels to be opened as required. Channels are not excessively large. This way, compared to traditional FUE technique, much more channels can be opened with sapphire FUE. More channels mean more density.
