What is DHI Hair Transplantation?

DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) is a technique used in hair transplantation. This technique is different from traditional hair transplantation methods because it does not require the individual follicles to be extracted and then prepared for implantation. Instead, DHI technique uses a special device to directly implant the hair follicles into the transplantation area.

The DHI hair transplant method can help the hair heal faster by reducing the exposure of the hair follicles to the external environment during the procedure. This technique is also less invasive and requires a shorter procedure time. With the DHI method, the density of the area to be transplanted is higher, resulting in more natural-looking results.

The DHI hair transplant procedure is performed under local anesthesia, therefore the patient does not feel any pain during the procedure. The recovery process is quick afterwards. As with any surgical procedure, the details of the treatment to be administered must be determined by a doctor's examination. If you want to get rid of hair loss thanks to the DHI method, you can contact me and my team whenever you would like.

How is DHI Hair Transplant Performed?

DHI is one of the most common hair transplant methods and can be applied quite simply. With this technique, applied with a special pen, new hair follicles will help you regain a natural head of hair in a short amount of time. DHI pen technique, which is generally completed in one session, promises more definitive results than other methods. The implementation stages of DHI hair transplant method are generally as follows:

  • Preparing the Donor Area: In DHI hair transplantation, the hair follicles are directly placed into the recipient area. As no hair cutting is necessary, it is also known as shaved hair transplantation. However, the area to be transplanted should be prepared beforehand with specially designed micro-channels opened with a specific tool. These channels help to correctly place the hair follicles.
  • Preparing the Donor Area: Healthy hair follicles are taken from the donor area at the side of the face for the DHI process. The hair roots present in this area are collected using a special instrument and then prepared for placement in the hair implantation area.
  • Hair Follicle Implantation: The prepared hair follicles are placed directly into the transplantation area using a special device. The DHI method allows for the direct placement of hair follicles without exposure to external elements, allowing the patient to return to their daily life more quickly during the healing process.

The DHI hair transplant procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and usually takes 6-8 hours. After the procedure, the patient can return to normal daily activities within a few days. However, the healing process may vary depending on the individual characteristics of the patient and the size of the area treated.

What is the Difference Between DHI and FUE Hair Transplant?

DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) are both modern and widely used hair transplant techniques. However, there are some differences between the two techniques. The most important differences can be listed as follows:

  • In the FUE hair transplant technique, single hair follicles are extracted and implanted onto the bald area. In the DHI hair transplant technique, the hair follicles are extracted using a special tool and directly implanted onto the bald area.
  • In the FUE hair transplant technique, channels are previously opened in the bald area to implant the hair follicles. In this implant technique, the hair roots are implanted directly into the balding area without the need for channeling.
  • In FUE hair transplant technique, the hair roots can be planted in different angles. Whereas, in DHI hair transplant technique the hair roots are placed directly into the bald area according to the natural hair growth angles.
  • FUE hair transplant technique requires separate processes for taking out the hair roots and planting them into the bald area, making it longer to complete. However, this technique is faster, as both processes are carried out simultaneously.

You can consider the recommendations of our experts to decide between DHI and FUE hair transplant methods. After the initial examination, we are informing our patients about which method will give better results.

Can DHI Hair Transplantation Be Done on Anyone?

The implant pens used today have a width range of 0.64 to 1.00 mm, thanks to this technology hair transplantation is safely done. But of course, in order to perform the hair transplantation procedure, there must be enough hairs in the donor area. In such circumstances, you can resort to FUE instead of DHI.

In addition to this, it is recommended that the patient is over 25 years old for DHI procedure. It is not possible to predict where hair loss will reach for those under 25 years old.
