DHI HAIR TRANSPLANT
What is a DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) Hair Transplant?
Saluss has adopted the very latest and most advanced technique for hair transplants. Direct Hair Implantation is the highest standard method used today for the procedure. DHI is very different to older methods in that it leaves absolutely no visible scaring and provides natural results. The DHI hair transplant process involves transplanting your healthy donor hairs inside channels that are opened simultaneously. A special device known as the CHOI Pen is used to directly implant your donor hairs by creating channels and transplanting your hairs into them at the same time.
» With DHI transplants the exact angle of the hair can be determined while implanting it, which allows for completely natural looking results. A special implanter device called a CHOI pen is used to implant each and every hair with precision and accuracy. DHI allows for much fuller and thicker results as well as looks that are indistinguishable from natural full headed hair.
» Compared to older methods, DHI transplants allow for almost 3 times the amount of hairs to be implanted per cm2. While you can implant 40 hairs via an older method like FUE, you can implant more than 100 via DHI.
» The success rate for DHI transplants is at 98 percent. Saluss has never had an unhappy patient and upholds a lifelong guarantee on every procedure. That means in the extremely rare case our patients need a second procedure, they will be treated for free.
» The risks of DHI transplants are extremely minimal. Compared to older methods, there is almost no bleeding, almost no risk of infection, no complications, and only a few temporary side-effects that last at most a week, which are limited to swelling and bruising.
With the DHI method, the patient will recover in the shortest of time. They will only have to stay in Turkey for three days at most. The first day is when they undergo the procedure second, the second day is when our team come for a medical check and hair wash and the third day is for their return home.
