At DHI, we have been treating hair loss since 1970. After having pioneered FUE in 2003, we innovated & launched the Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) techniqueTM in 2005. FUE & FUT With DHI Hair Transplant or Direct Hair Implantation hair follicles are implanted one by one directly into the thinning area that needs to be covered. Each hair follicle is placed in a specific direction, angle, and depth, thanks to the DHI patented tool, the DHI implanter, providing 100% natural results and maximum viability. The implanted hairs continue to grow throughout a person’s lifetime and do not fall out. The whole procedure is performed by physicians trained and certified by the DHI Hair Restoration Academy of London, the one and only Academy in the world in hair restoration, and under strict DHI quality standardization protocols that we have set up to ensure great results every time.
The three most popular hair transplant techniques are Direct Hair Implantation (DHI), Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). One of the key differences among these techniques is how the hair follicles are extracted from the donor area and then how they are implanted in the receptor area.
FUT is the oldest hair transplant technique in which a thin strip of skin is removed from the back of the head surgically. The hair follicles are then divided into individual units by the doctor’s assistants. The donor area is then stitched together.
FUT technique leaves a noticeable scar on the donor area. Hair follicles are implanted by creating reception incisions or holes in the treatment area and placing hair follicles with forceps. This gives little or no control over depth, angle, and direction. Thus, results are not natural.
FUE is one of the most prevalent hair transplant techniques in which a hair follicle or group of hair follicles is removed by making a circular cut in the skin around it using a punch. This technique leaves small open holes in the scalp that turn into tiny white scars.
FUE scars are less visible than FUT scars.
Hair follicles are implanted the same way as in the FUT technique. Reception holes are made in the treatment area and hair follicles are placed with forceps. This gives little or no control over depth, angle, and direction. And, thus, the results are not natural.
Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) is the most advanced hair transplant technique. In DHI, hair follicles are removed from the donor area one after one using a very fine extractor with a diameter of 1mm or less. DHI procedure is always performed by certified surgeons, unlike FUE and FUT procedures which are mostly done by technicians.
The hair is then placed using a single-use implanter directly on the treatment area. DHI's implanter gives a surgeon full control over depth, angle, and direction ensuring natural results.
The transplanted hair grows naturally just like facial hair with the same texture and characteristics. Besides, you can shave newly implanted facial hair and even style them as you want.
DHITM uses the direct hair implantation (DHI) technique to give you natural results and density. We use single- use patented instruments for the procedures that allow us to achieve perfect angle, depth, and direction.
The facial hair transplant procedures are performed under local anesthesia. They are painless and last for an hour or two. There is no recovery time as such. Patients can resume their daily routine the next day.
