DHI IMPLANT METHOD
METHOD OF DHI IMPLANTATION
Unlike the FUE method, microchannel creation and follicle implantation are performed concurrently with the DHI implantation method, i.e. extraction and implantation are combined as part of a two-step process, grafting hair follicles extracted directly in the reception areas without the need to create canal engravings in the area. This approach employs the use of an equipment known as a “implanter,” which consists of a hollow needle attached to a cylinder and a push device.
During a DHI transplant, the follicle is inserted into the implanter with considerable caution in order not to any damage. The follicle is inserted and placed at the end of the implanter before being handed to the specialist. The needle is then placed into the scalp at a precise angle of 40 – 45 degrees. During the procedure, 2 to 6 implanters and approximately 15 or 16 needles are necessary. The instrument includes a range of needle diameters to accommodate the follicles. Of course, the DHI method has benefits and drawbacks as compared to the FUE procedure.
ADVANTAGES OF THE DHI TECHNIQUE
- Reducing the amount of time the bulbs are outside the body, ensuring a firm and safe placement.
- Implanted follicles have a high survival rate.
- Bleeding is reduced during the follicular implantation period.
- Quick recovery during the postoperative phase allows the patient to return to his normal routine sooner.
- It is not required to trim the reception area because this is the best approach for this case.
DISADVANTAGES OF THE DHI TECHNIQUE
More time is required for the doctor and medical team to become experts in the usage of this approach.
In general, it is a more expensive process than other techniques of hair transplantation.
This procedure demands more concentration and precision.
This procedure might create stress to the operator because it requires more attention and precision, which can affect both the extraction and implantation processes, perhaps causing harm when handling the grafts.
