Patented Hair Transplant Tools

With great delicacy and precision, each hair follicle is extracted using a specially designed and patented DHI tool that makes micro punches (approx. 0.7mm-1mm) on the donor zone. This technique guarantees gentle, non-invasive, yet manual harvesting. The implanter instrument is a small, spring-loaded stylus with a grooved needle. And it gives full control of direction, angle, and depth. Maison Lutétia is the perfect place to consider a DHI Hair Transplant in Dubai.

    No Scars

    The tools used in DHI do not require incisions or make holes in the scalp as is the case in conventional methods like FUE or FUT. We don’t use a punch, which can leave an “orange peel” effect on the scalp. With no scars or scalp imperfections to hide, you can style your hair however you want.


    Certified Practioner

    From start to finish, DHI is performed only by doctors trained and certified by the DHI Academy.

    100% Natural Results

    Tailor-made to suit each patient’s unique case, the DHI method’s objective is to deliver a carefully studied graft distribution by restoring a natural capillary line leaving you with a denser hairline and great texture.

    with the DHI Method

    The DHI Method has two pivotal stages – extraction and implantation. The core element for this procedure is the “donor” zone. This is located on the back and on the sides of the skull. This is the only area spared from hair loss. In a nutshell, the hair follicles are carefully extracted from this area and re-implanted using a patented DHI instrument on the region suffering from hair loss where the follicle will continue to grow and produce hair.

    At Maison Lutétia, we further enhance this process by preserving the hair follicles in a solution of HypoThermosol. This valuable preparation optimizes the rate of regrowth by minimizing trauma to the hair follicles during the procedure. This protocol is an absolute, must as per the indications specified by DHI.

    The process of extraction can be compared to the work of a craftsman. With great delicacy and precision, each hair follicle is extracted using a specially designed and patented DHI tool that makes micro punches (approx. 0.7mm-1mm) on the donor zone. This technique guarantees a gentle, non-invasive, yet manual harvesting.

    Unlike a machine, only a DHI certified specialized doctor can judge and anticipate the direction to extract each follicle. This craftsmanship enables the removal of each hair follicle in a pain-free way without damaging the roots.

    Implantation is the second stage of DHI. This stage is the equally as precise and meticulous as the extraction stage, however, it requires a subtle, definite, non-invasive motion to obtain a perfect, customized result as per the patient’s requirement.

    During this stage, the steps of implantation follow a rigorous and thorough protocol in which the certified doctor and nurse will work in synergy. First, the nurse sorts and classifies the hair follicles one-by-one according to the number of hairs they contain (from 1-9), the average being 2.2. Next, the doctor asks the nurse to bring the chosen follicles to recreate the hair as naturally as possible i.e. simple follicles at the level of the capillary line and multiple follicles along the head to provide a denser result.

    Temporary solutions such as micropigmentation on the scalp can help to hide thinning hair. With over 5,000 patients treated in our clinics in Paris and Dubai, we have seen significant success in hair transplants using the Direct Hair Implantation method. Transplanted hair can last for decades and requires no more maintenance than the rest of the hair on the head, this means that the value of a hair transplant is truly life-long. Individual extraction of hair follicles means that there is no scarring at the donor site, individual implantation of the hair follicle allows the hair transplant surgeon to follow the linear growth pattern of the hair in the transplant area, meaning the transplanted hair follicles will grow in the same direction and manner as the rest of the hair.
