Benefits of the sapphire scalpel in a hair graft

There are many benefits that using the sapphire scalpel can offer in a hair graft. What do they consist of and why do people opt for this alternative? We show you all its benefits!

Less bleeding and scabbing

That the incisions are cleaner with this scalpel due to the shape of the tip makes it less bleeding during the intervention. Although it depends on each person, because there are people who bleed more and others less, it does help in general.

The fact that there is less blood also causes less scabs to form, which is also positive for achieving a better result and a better recovery after the intervention.

Gain higher density in a single intervention

One of the most widely known benefits of sapphire is that it allows you to gain more density. By making the incisions closer together due to having a cleaner blade, it makes the final result more natural and we can have more density.

Heals in less time

Another thing we should know is that the sapphire scalpel in a hair graft causes it to heal sooner. As the incisions are cleaner and inserted in a more exact position, the follicular unit is more easily grasped, healing earlier and helping to reduce the loss of follicular units.

Better direction is achieved when implanting

In general, the use of sapphire helps to achieve a better result by allowing better direction of the incision and better angulation.

Follicular unit damage is less

Being a much more exact appliance, it allows the incisions to be closer to each other without causing damage to the follicular unit.

Although this part is greatly influenced by the experience of the medical team, the sapphire scalpel in a hair graft helps to reduce the possible damage to the follicular unit. In Hospital Capilar We have a highly qualified and specialized team in the sector whose experience is of special importance to achieve, together with the best equipment, the best possible result.
