DHI Hair Transplant Technique

DHI Hair Transplant Technique

DHI Hair Transplant Technique

The Choi pen is a real breakthrough in DHI. It’s a pen-like device with a hollow needle at the tip. DHI is the acronym of “Direct Hair Implantation”. It is a paradigm shift in the field of hair transplantation. In particular, it benefits men and women with thinning areas of the scalp. DHI enables hair transplant to be performed without shaving the head, achieving higher hair density.

What is the DHI transplant (Choi pen)?

The DHI (Direct Hair Implant) technique involves removal of hair follicles from the donor area individually, one by one, using a very fine extractor with a diameter of one millimetre or less. The hair is then placed on the treatment area without needing to create channels for follicles. This technique provides a natural appearance without visible scars on the affected area or damaging follicles. Furthermore, hair transplant with the Choi pen takes less time, depending on the number of follicles to be implanted. There is also no need to shave the patient’s hair before the procedure, except in the donor area and a little in the transplanted area. Therefore, many people who suffer from sparse hair density follow this course of treatment. Moreover, women turn to this procedure as a lifeline that avoids them shaving hair, as well as painful cuts and scars caused by old methods.

How to perform the DHI hair transplant:

Hair transplant for women without shaving:

After marking the front hair line of the scalp, hair follicles are placed on the scalp by means of an advanced device, Choi pen, under local anaesthesia. Six to fifteen Choi pens can be used at the same time to reduce the time needed to complete the procedure. This helps not to strain the scalp or suffer complications. Additionally, this method maintains the quality of follicles and transplantation.

Patients that undergo DHI hair transplant are not required to stay under special care in the clinic. They can leave the clinic immediately after the completion of the operation once the patient is in a stable condition. 

It should be noted that this technique can be used for different hair loss cases. It is the perfect option to increase hair density easily and safely. Furthermore, it is important to ensure that the doctor is highly qualified and well-trained, before applying for the DHI hair transplant in Turkey.

Who is a good candidate for hair transplant with Choi pens?

Most cases that suffer from all-cause hair loss, baldness, low hair density or thinning can undergo Choi pen technique. It may be your first option in special cases, such as women with low hair density and do not want to shave hair, or those who don’t want to wait for hair growth after the procedure, especially if they are looking for a simple cosmetic procedure, such as increasing hair density in specific areas only.
