DHI stands for Direct Hair Implantation and is performed with an implanter pen that extracts the grafts and reimplants the hair follicles at the same time.
The hair follicles are loaded into the pen that implants them with precision, making the surgeon's job easier and less time-consuming because they don’t need to implant the hair follicles manually.
The most important benefit of a DHI hair transplant is the precision of the placement of the hair follicles that grow to look natural.
In addition, this method is painless, there is no visible scarring, and patients don’t need to shave their hair before the procedure, the method is only done by specialized DHI doctors and 90% of the implanted hair follicles are expected to fully grow.
DHI and Fue hair transplant methods are very similar because individual hair follicles are removed directly from the donor area. .
The main difference is that with the DHI method the surgeon uses an implanted pen that extracts the grafts and implants the hair follicles at the same time. This pen extracts and implants the follicles accurately, giving a very natural look.
The DHI hair transplant method uses state-of-the-art technology and has a success rate of around 90%. However, this method is not for everyone, it depends on the surgeon’s recommendation and the patient’s needs.
This hair transplant procedure is simple. The first step involves removing the hair follicles one by one. Then, these hair follicles are loaded into the implanter pen that implants them directly into the recipient area. Afterward, the surgeon will bandage the donor and recipient areas.

Candidates for a DHI hair transplant are people who suffer from androgenic alopecia (hair loss). In addition, it's recommended that patients are 25 years or older because before this age, hair loss is more unpredictable. Hair density is also crucial because people with thick hair usually see better results.
The price of a DHI hair transplant will vary depending on the number of grafts needed based on the surgeon's recommendation.
