DHI Technique

DHI (Implanter Pen Technique / Choi Implanter Pen Technique) is the transplantation of the harvested grafts into the recipient area by using the implanter pen. The hair follicles are implanted one by one directly into the transplant area in a specific direction, angle and depth, providing 100% natural results and maximum viability.

The advantages of this technique are:

  • Incision holes are not required, so:
    • The existing hair is not damaged.
    • The transplant area bleeds less, heals faster.
    • There is a higher survival rate for the tissue.
  • Since the tip of the implanter is very thin:
    • There is less damage to the follicular unit during the transplant. With the DHI method, between 90-95% of the extracted hairs survive.
    • The surgeon can orient the transplanted hair in different angles, which allows a more natural appearance.
    • We can achieve a higher density hair transplant: In the DHI technique, high density is 70-90 grafts / cm2. In FUE, this figure is 50-60 grafts / cm2.
