How does a hair transplant work?
A FUE hair transplant is when individual hair follicles are removed from the donor area through a small incision made with a 1-millimetre punch tool, and then placed into tiny incisions in the recipient area.
This method requires local anaesthesia and can take up to eight hours to complete the procedure depending on the severity of hair loss or hair thinning. After the transplant, there may be some redness that will typically clear up within seven days and swelling around the eyes may last for several days.
A DHI hair transplant is an innovative technique that does not require any type of incision to place the follicles in the recipient areas. In DHI, hair follicles are extracted from the donor area with a special instrument called Choi Pen, and the hair follicles are then immediately inserted into the targeted areas using specialized implanters.
This procedure takes only 2-3 hours depending on how much work needs to be done. Unlike FUE, this method doesn't require any local anaesthesia or recovery time after surgery.
