DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) DHI hair transplantation is the placement of individually  harvested hair follicles into the transplant area with Choi automatic implantation pens. In DHI hair transplantation the harvested grafts are directly transferred to the scalp without opening channels using a surgical pen with a thickness between 0.6 mm and 1 mm . This process is performed in two separate steps . It is called direct hair transplant because it is performed with implantation pens called Choi.

What is DHI hair transplant?
First, it provides 100% natural results, since it is the patient’s own hair. Secondly, it is a painless procedure, there is less bleeding and it causes more intense hair growth. The Choi Implant Pen used in the DHI Hair Transplant is disposable and provides high safety and hygiene.

In the FUE hair transplant process; Before implanting the hair follicles, the specialist who performs the procedure opens the channels that are already in the scalp. During the DHI process, the Choi Pen is used which does both procedures by itself.

The Choi Pen is a pen-like instrument with a hollow needle at one of its tips. During the hair transplant process, the technicians place the hair grafts into the hollow tip of the needle and then the specialist transplants the hair grafts placed into the tip of the needle into the area to be transplanted. This process is repeated for each graft. In other words, it is repeated approximately 4,000-5,000 times in an ordinary hair transplant.

In the standard FUE method; While the team performing the procedure needs to make small circular incisions in the scalp, DHI eliminates the canal opening process in Hair Transplant. In this method, the specialist can implant the grafts directly into the area to be transplanted.

In the hair transplant operation performed with the DHI method (Direct Hair Implantation), the hair taken from the donating area will be transplanted. Since the roots are transferred to the recipient area in a short period of time, less root loss occurs. So, when using the Choi Implant Pen in DHI hair transplantation it provides significantly higher graft adhesion compared to other techniques after transplantation. Also, as there is no cutting process, this means a quicker recovery time and people who have hair transplantation return to their daily lives quickly.

The DHI hair transplant method is applied without damaging the healthy tissues, it is advantageous in terms of allowing to do other transplants. If the FUE hair transplant technique is not performed by specialist can damage the existing healthy hair strands, in the process of opening the canal, but this rate was gradually reduced in the DHI hair transplant technique.

The healing process in DHI hair transplant method is also very fast compared to other techniques. Because the problem of scabs and oedema will be solved in 3-4 days. In FUE technique, this period can be up to 10 days.
