Direct hair Implantation (DHI) is a similar method of hair transplant to Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Many of our clients opt for the DHI procedure when their hair is thinning or when they have small areas of hair loss. DHI hair transplants are an advancement in the hair restoration industry. This method of hair transplant was developed to implant hair grafts closer together. Thus resulting in the clients having a thicker head of hair.

The DHI method of hair transplant has the same extraction technique as the FUE method. Therefore, hair grafts are individually taken out of the donor area by the surgeon using micro-forceps alongside the help of an extraction machine. Next, the hair grafts are prepped and protected at a temperature within a special solution ready for implantation.

No incisions are made when implanting hair through the DHI method. Unlike FUE, the DHI hair transplant procedure is carried out by using (Choi) pen technology. Through using pen technology surgeons can implant hair grafts directly into the appointed area of the head. Additionally, when using pen technology surgeons’ have more control with how hair grafts are implanted. (They can determine what angle or depth to place each graft).


  • The fine-tooth pens create a highly dense, more natural result.

  • The lack of needles and the use of anaesthesia ensure a painless, comfortable process.

  • Since there is no need to open the canal on the transplant site, there will be less bleeding and no damage to the bald area.

  • Rapid improvement following the procedure due to less tension on the head.

  • There is no need to cut the existing hair.

  • The tissues in the cultivated area have a higher chance of survival.

  • Less harm is caused to the transported follicles.



The hair roots are taken using the FUE method and placed inside the pens. The roots are then injected into the skin by adjusting the angle, direction, and depth of the pens. The needle retracts, and the stem stays behind under the skin. These pens are thinner than one-millimetre, allowing us to sow at any rate without leaving any marks and pits in the beard and mustard areas.


We use two different sized single-use needles in our DHI hair transplants, namely a 0.8-millimetre needle for one and two grafts, and a one-millimetre needle for between two and four grafts.
