Main differences between DHI and FUE Hair Transplant
DHI Hair Transplant technique is the latest one. In fact, it is the continuation of FUE hair transplant technique. While channels are opened in the FUE, there is no need to open channels in the DHI technique.
In FUE hair transplantation, small incisions are made on the skin. These are formed as slits and then hair follicles are transplanted into it. Since the hair follicles may be broken during the transplantation, the experience and skill of the surgeon is very important in this procedure.
In DHI hair transplantation, the hair follicles are placed at the tip of the pen called implanter pen and directly transplanted into the skin. The pen tip enters the skin, leaves the hair root and the pen tip comes out. And this ensures less scarring as the slit-shaped incisions made in the FUE do not exist in this technique.
You’ll face only scabs up to the size of a pinhead appear and fall out until the 10th day after your hair transplantation surgery. On the other hand, this period may take a bit longer in the FUE method as the crusting will be more.
In DHI hair transplantation, the process of returning to work and social life is a little bit quicker than the FUE technique. The FUE method can be ideal because it covers larger areas, when compared to DHI technique. But DHI method provides a good rate of achieving higher density.
What is the DHI method?
DHI - Direct hair implantation (Direct hair implantation) - a method of direct seamless hair transplantation. Hair transplantation is carried out using the Choi Pen tool, with a diameter of 0.7 - 0.9 mm (the optimal diameter for minimal trauma to the transplanted area). This method reduces the time the grafts are outside the body, which ensures a strong and healthy engraftment of the grafts.
How is DHI hair transplant performed?
The transplant (*elements of the hair tissue of the head with hair follicles, 1 The transplant includes from 1 to 4 follicles) is made from donor areas (lateral and occipital zones). The extracted grafts are first placed in a special liquid of a certain temperature, which allows them to ensure good engraftment after transplantation.
Then, using the same tool, the hair follicle is transplanted into the receiving area, according to the direction of hair growth, at an angle of 40-45 degrees, to a certain depth. Hair implantation is performed under local anesthesia, without preliminary incisions and skin punctures.
How long does the healing process take after a hair transplant?
Micro-wounds in the extraction area and in the staging area resemble punctures from a medical injection, which heal without a trace in 3-5 days. During the first 6 months, the transplanted hair will periodically fall out and grow back. The patient will be able to see the final result approximately 7-8 months after the transplant.
After this procedure, the patient can return to work the very next day, since this procedure is minimally traumatic and does not require bandaging.

At first I had some nerves surrounding the procedure, however, these were soon gone when reassured by the professional staff. So much so I came back for a second hair transplant. The procedure was painless and was completed on the same day, allowing for visible results with minimal scarring.
