Hair transplantation operations are usually carried out by using two different techniques: FUE and DHI (newly developed technique). First of all, the samples to be taken from the hair strands of the patient are sent for examination and the technique that will be applied to the person is defined.
The first of the mentioned methods is the FUE technique. It is a frequently preferred method and its success rate is very high. In the procedure applied in FUE technique, the hairs are taken from the nape and prepared to be injected into the treatment areas. Local anesthesia is applied before this procedure.
The other technique is DHI application. DHI is a method called direct hair transplantation. The procedure is carried out using special pens called Choi pens. Therefore, this method is also known as pen hair transplantation. DHI is the transplantation of the hair follicles collected onto the sparse or non-haired area with the help of specially developed pencils. Thanks to these pens, called DHI pend, both grooving and hair transplantation can be performed at the same time. Thus, two separate steps can be reduced to a single stage with DHI.
