Sapphire FUE uses blades made of the sapphire gemstone to open channels on the transplantation area. As a result of its properties, sapphire allows for the blade to have a sharp V-shaped edge. Sapphire tipped instruments allow a skilled surgeon to create channels at perfect angles that would otherwise be impossible to achieve with steel blades.
Using sapphire equipment has many benefits for the patient. First of all, these blades are harder and sharper than the regular blades. The precise cuts allowed by these instruments create surgical incisions that heal quicker and better than those made by steel. This plays a role in decreasing the likelihood and severity of the short-term complications that might be experienced.
