Beart Transplantation “DHI Direct”

DHI Direct can help men achieve natural-looking and thicker beard hair with a gentle and nearly painless procedure.

We do this using a minimally invasive technique that has been tried and tested for many years, using a specially developed instrument (the “DHI Implanter”) instead of a scalpel.


For a lasting thicker beard

With “DHI Direct Hair” transplantation, hair can be transplanted to any desired part of the body or face -and beard procedures are a very popular especially among young men.

Just as with scalp hair transplantation, hair is taken from the donor area at the back of the head and the  back parts of the temples. These are selected in such a way that they match the existing beard hair. With the help of the DHI Implanter, the doctor has full control over the depth, angle and direction of the hair to be implanted during the procedure. As a result, a beautiful and absolutely natural-looking thickening of the facial hair can be achieved, which you can see on our hair transplant before after photos

Effective and gentle

Only healthy hair follicles with good growth potential are selected and implanted. Our method works without cuts and holes, so a very fast regeneration is achieved.

Fast return to everyday life

Patients can go back to normal life within a few days, due to the minimal invasive methode and the resulting fast healing after the transplant.

No visible scars

The procedure is carried out using gentle and precise instruments, allowing for a natural-looking result without any visible scars.

The DHI Implanter

The DHI Implanter is an approx. 10 cm long pen specially developed by DHI, which is used instead of a scalpel or a scalpel-like instrument and leads to excellent results.

The hair follicles are pushed into the tip of the pen and handed over to the doctor. They place the pen on the area to be transplanted, presses the pen tip into the skin, and implants the hair root. The pen tip comes out immediately. In quick succession, this process – supported by an assistant – is repeated thousands of times in a row.

The DHI Implanter enables our doctors specially trained in the DHI method to perform a gentle, low-pain procedure, thus helping patients to have natural-looking, dense beard hair.

Advantages of the DHI Implanter

  • Insertion of hair is easily manageable at different angles (see picture).
  • Little redness, as insertion is “one step only” and minimally  invasive.
  • No visible scars –  no separate channel opening and insertions only as large as necessary.
  • Fast healing and little crust formation.
  • High hair growth rate (93%+).
  • Particularly suitable for densifying areas where there is (thinning) hair still around.

    the Steps of a  DHI Hair transplantation

    The DHI method is a natural hair transplant method that has been constantly developed for over 15 years and is state-of-the-art. The process differs from other methods in several areas (see also method comparison here) – you can find an overview here:

    Step 1: Preparation

    After you confirm the hair transplant , we will prepare you for the upcoming ooperation in a conscientious and timely fashion.  You will also be instructed on all medical aspectis by a member of our medical team. Above all, we will inform you in detail about what you need to pay attention to before, during and after the procedure. We can have all conversations with you personally on site at the Centrum Aestheticum, or by phone.

    Step 2: Extraction of the hair

    This is carried out  under local anesthesia. With the help of an electric micro puncher, the doctor removes the hair follicles individually from the donor zone, i.e. from the back of the head or from the posterior temples. Hair from these areas is not genetically affected by hair loss, even after it is transplanted into the recipient area. Unlike the traditional FUT method, the removal takes place without any cutting.

    Step 3: Intermediate storage of follicles

    During the period between extraction and insertion of the hair, our medical team will count, sort and then store the follicles  in a special liquid at a fixed temperature, which promotes its growth after insertion. With the DHI method, the follicles are never separated nor cut during this time – i.e. they are inserted in the same shape as they were extracted, which is unique, leading also to the high growth rate of follicles (>93%)

    Step 4: Implantation

    The insertion of the hair in the recipient area is then carried out with the specially developed “DHI implanter”. This is a pen of about 10 cm long with a  very narrow tip (<1.0 mm) in which the hair follicle is fixed and then pressed into the scalp by the doctor, which  implants the hair root. This minimally invasive process is also carried out under a light local anesthesia. The implanter has significant advantages versus other commonly used instruments. (see here). Please also see our  Haartranplantation Before After  pictures. 

    Step 5: After Care

    Immediately after the procedure, the attending physician will sit down with the patient on site and explain in detail the rules of conduct for the days and weeks after the operation. Aftr that our medical team  can be reached at any time via mobile phone number for questions or assistance. If necessary, a personal check-up appointment can also be arranged.

    In the weeks and months that follow, we are interested that you stay in touch with us, e.g. by sending up-to-date photos or making a personal appointment. Patients recognize initial improvements after already a few weeks, the final result usually comes after 9-12 months.

    In addition, we also advise you on possible supplementary therapy options (e.g.Eigenbluttherapie)

    Comparison of Methods

    If you are considering a hair transplant, then you will come across different methods during your research that basically have a similar offer – namely the transplantation of follicles resistant to hair loss from the area of the back of the head (donor area) to the thinning or bare part of the body that is to be covered with hair (“receiving area”)

    Nevertheless, there are considerable differences between different techniques – especially FUT, FUE and DHI – which we would like to describe to you in detail in this comparison of methods:

    Welche Methode und welche Instrumente werden verwendet?

    Neben der Erfahrung des Ärzteteams sind vor allem die Methode, die verwendeten Instrumente und die standardisierten Prozesse zur Gewährleistung der Sicherheit und der Qualität für den Erfolg einer Haartransplantation entscheidend.

    DHI ist die weltweit führende Methode

    DHI ist seit mehr als 50 Jahren führend bei Eigenhaartransplantationen, und die jetzt verwendete DHI Methode ist seit 15 Jahren im Einsatz
    Der DHI Implanter (statt Skalpell und Pinzette) gibt dem Arzt oder der Ärztin optimale Kontrolle über Winkel und Tiefe jedes implantierten Haares
    Ein minutiös festgesetzter Ablauf mit standardisierten Prozessen regelt jeden Schritt des Eingriffes.
    Es werden strengste hygienische Standards weltweit vorgegeben und deren Einhaltung durch die DHI Gruppe kontrolliert

    Wer führt die Implantation durch?

    Es muss dem Gesetz nach zwar immer ein Arzt involviert sein. Aber das bedeutet nicht, dass in allen Kliniken und bei allen Methoden der behandelnde Arzt den Eingriff auch durchgehend ausführt, tatsächlich eine hochwertige Ausbildung vorzuweisen hat bzw. genügend Erfahrung mitbringt.

    DHI – Eingriff nur durch hochspezialisierte Ärzte

    Ein Arzt alleine (nicht mehrere Personen, oftmals Assistenten) führt den gesamten Eingriff durch. Arzt bzw. Ärztin ist von A-Z verantwortlich.
    Alle DHI Ärzte haben dieselbe rigorose Ausblidung erhalten sowie jahrelange Erfahrungen im Bereich der Haartransplantation
    Jeder Arzt und jede Ärztin ist durch die weltweit einzigartige DHI Acedemy of London zertifiziert

    In der Türkei oder doch besser in Wien?

    Die zahlreichen auf Haartransplantationen spezialisierten Kliniken im Ausland, vor allem in der Türkei,  unterscheiden sich in vieler Hinsicht von renommierten österreichischen Instituten, wie z.B. DHI Wien
