What’s the difference DHI and FUE ?

Hair transplantation is a popular way to restore hair loss and baldness in both men and women. There are two methods of hair transplantation: DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). Both methods involve surgically removing donor hair from the back of the scalp and transplanting it to areas of the scalp that are bald or have thinning hair.

The main difference between DHI and FUE is the technique used to extract the donor hair. DHI uses a special tool called a choi implanter to implant the hair follicles directly into the scalp without the need for a scalpel or stitches. The donor hair is placed into the scalp one follicle at a time. This technique is quick and efficient, and it results in minimal scarring and pain.

FUE, on the other hand, uses a special device called a punch to extract individual hair follicles from the donor area. The follicles are then transplanted into the recipient area one by one. FUE is considered to be less invasive than DHI, and it also results in minimal scarring and pain.

When it comes to the success rate of the two techniques, DHI has been shown to have a slightly higher success rate than FUE. This is due to the fact that the choi implanter can precisely place the hair follicles into the scalp, resulting in a more natural-looking outcome.

Both DHI and FUE are effective methods of hair transplantation, and the choice of technique depends on the individual’s needs and preferences. It is important to consult with a hair restoration specialist to determine the best method for you.
