Difference between DHI and traditional hair transplants
The DHI transplant, FUE, and FUT procedures all involve extracting the hair follicles from the donor area and implanting them in the balding areas.However, the main procedure is the same, but to execute the plan, all the procedures operate differently.In the FUE technique, the surgeon manually removes the hair follicles from the donor area by cutting channels into the scalp. The insertion of the follicles is also done in a similar way.On the other hand, DHI implantation uses a pen-like tool to withdraw hair follicles from the scalp. The transplantation of the follicles is also done by the equipment that cuts open the canals and implants the hair simultaneously.
Finally, the FUT method removes a strip of skin from the donor area. The hair follicles are extracted from the skin patch to be infused into the scalp.Hence, the strip method leaves a large scar and takes more time to recover as compared to other procedures. On the contrary, DHI leaves undetected scars. This procedure is also less invasive and has a higher level of efficacy.This modified FUE technique is a more productive procedure. However, all the other types of treatment have the potential to cure hair fall prompted by male or female pattern baldness. The hair transplants should be received by experienced surgeons to enjoy satisfactory results.
