The FUE and Sapphire FUE techniques do not contain over-arching differences that separate them. The only distinguishing factor between the two approaches is how the microchannels, where the surgeon plants the donor follicles, are opened.

The Sapphire FUE technique offers a technological improvement from its traditional counterpart: When using the Fue method, the surgeon opens up microchannels with steel blades, whereas sapphire blades are used with the Sapphire FUE technique. The advantage of sapphire blades is that it allows the surgeon to form thinner incisions, resulting in faster recovery times.

Sapphire blades are made from synthetic sapphire (one of the most sturdy materials available), which is manufactured through a chemical process.

Step by Step Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant Procedure 

  •  Surgeon shaves the donor area.
  •  Hair follicles will be extracted from the donor area using a micro punch instrument.
  •  The surgeon will then insert the extracted follicles through a series of tiny incisions made using a sapphire blade.
  •  The follicles will be inserted into the incisions.
  •  The surgeon will clean and bandage the area for recovery.


  • Sapphire, a very solid crystal, does not lose its sharpness; therefore, no tissue loss develops when canals are opened.
  • Antimicrobial
  • Sapphire blades increase the survival of grafts after the transplant procedure.
  • Another advantage of making smaller incisions with sapphire blades gives the surgeon ability to plant hair follicles densely, resulting in a more natural-looking appearance.
