DHI Direct Hair Implantation is the most advanced and innovative hair restoration treatment with Choi implant pen to treat hair loss in men and women painlessly and in a short time.
DHI technique is developed on the basis of graft extraction – transplantation technique (as in Follicular Unit Extraction), hair follicles are collected from the donor area (where the hair is removed from the body, usually the back of the head) and implanted in the recipient area where balding is experienced.
The DHI technique is considered a breakthrough in hair transplant procedures to achieve the most natural looking results. The use of the Choi pen makes it possible to more densely implant hair, which has little effect on the integrity of the skin, and to transplant hair without completely shaving the head. We want to make sure you have a deep understanding and consideration of the DHI procedure.
Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure. Therefore, it should be done under the supervision of a doctor with the support of a healthcare professional specialized in the relevant field.
Anyone over 18 who has a hair problem due to age, hormonal and genetic disorder/condition can have hair transplantation.
The most curious question asked by hair transplant patients is the duration of this procedure. The duration of the operation depends on the patency of the patient and the number of grafts to be implanted. However, hair transplantation procedures take an average of 7-8 hours.
Hair transplant surgery consists of two stages. The first stage is the removal of hair follicles as much as the planned number of grafts from the nape, and the second stage is the transfer of these hair follicles to the targeted area. The latest and most common technology still applied in the extraction stage is the “Micro Motor” technique.The most common and advanced technology used in follicle transplantation is the “DHI Pen technique”.
The maximum number of grafts that can be given per day with the DHI technique is 4500-4600. The surgery of patients who need more than this number of grafts is spread over two days. Because the hair follicles removed from the patient can remain in the cold chain for a limited time.
The ideal period between two hair transplant operations is at least 12 months. However, in some exceptional cases, doctors may prefer doing it after six months.
In most of the cases, you can give shape to your hair after three weeks. However, it is not possible for you to shave your hair completely until the sixth month of the recovery period.
