DHI Hair Transplantation

DHI Hair Transplantation and Implanter Pen Technique

While some studies have seen the DHI technique as a new hair transplantation method, some scientific sources have stated that this is a method of implantation with FUE technique as it is considered as a marketing tactic and not as a new technique.

How to Do Hair Transplantation by DHI Technique?

Unlike FUE, the DHI technique can be described as implanting hair follicles from the donor site without opening the channel by implanter. The Implanter / Choi needle, which has a very thin, cylindrical and sharp structure, is in the form of a channel and the hair is inserted through the channel and inserted into the needle.

DHI Technique Stages

  1. In hair transplantation made with Cholimplanter pen, hair follicles are carefully placed into the pen one by one, and the assistants give the hair follicles to the specialist doctor for transplantation.
  2. The doctor sows the hair follicles at angles of 40-45 degrees, in addition, the other point is the transplanting of the person’s hairs in according the previous direction.
  3. After the hair roots placed on the Choi needle have been determined the angle and direction, the needle is pushed with the sowing feature; In the operation, 2 to 6 Choi pens and 15-16 Choi pens tips are used, the pens tips can be in different sizes, which is determined by the hair follicle and thickness structure of the person.

Choi hair transplantation method has different advantages and disadvantages than FUE method.

Advantages of DHI Technique

  • It minimizes the time of the hair follicles stay outside the tissue and performs the transplantation in a healthier way.
  • The survival rate of hair follicles is high.
  • As the incision area will be less, the risk of bleeding is minimized.
  • With the faster recovery after the operation, the person returns to his / her daily life in a short time.
  • Unshaved hair transplantation is easier in this technique.

Disadvantages of DHI Technique

The disadvantages compared to the FUE method are the following:

  • In order to make the best use and specialization of this method, the doctor and his team must go through a long training process.
  • It is more expensive compared to other methods.
  • The doctor should be careful and in high condition.
  • Transplanting in the hairy area means that the transplanting area is too narrow, if you do not have enough experience, Choi can damage the other hair follicles with the tips when working in this space.

ZERO Painful Method in Hair Transplantation!

Sedation performed under the supervision of the anesthesiologist, before the hair transplantation, you will not feel pain of local aneshthesia and so that more comfortable, painless hair transplantation takes place. Hair transplantation procedures are not already a very painful procedure, it is more comfortable for people with injection fear. Minimal pain was almost completely reduced by this method.

Sedation; It is a sleep state that can be individually arranged, the effect can be measured, all reflexes are protected with sedative drugs and the depth can be adjusted in a controlled manner.

Sedation can be used even in children, it is a method that reduce pain level to zero in the hair transplantation. However, sedation may not be desirable, it is the completely choice of person.

Is Everyone Suitable for DHI / Choi Hair Transplantation?

This method was first applied at Kyungpook University in Korea. According to the results of the study, not all patients are suitable for hair transplantation with Choi pen.

The reason for this was the placement of thin and curled hair follicles on the implanted end and damage during transplanting. In the subsequent studies, suitable implant pen was produced not only for thick haired people specific to Asians, but for more general hair types. The implantable pen used today is between 0.64 mm and 1.0 mm.

Today, in the light of scientific and technological developments, Choi operations are performed safely.

For this reason, hair transplantation with Choi tips in specialized clinics doctors can get effective, predictable natural looking hair.
