What Is NeoGraft Hair Restoration?
NeoGraft is a hair restoration treatment designed to address thinning hair and bald spots in men and women by transplanting hair follicles from one area of the scalp to another. It is able to deliver excellent results with little to no discomfort.
The treatment itself is minimally invasive and does not create a scar, unlike other treatments. Recovery is quick and easy for most patients, and results begin to develop in just 3-4 months.
How Does It Compare to Traditional Hair Loss Treatment?
Originally, hair transplantation was accomplished by removing a strip of the scalp and harvesting follicles with a manual tool. The two edges of the scalp are closed at the back of the head, creating a distinctive linear scar. With NeoGraft, we safely and painlessly harvest individual hair follicles from the back of the scalp using a special handheld device connected to a sophisticated machine.
This process preserves the scalp, avoids a scar, and allows for quicker follicle implantation. Even better, it does not thin out the hair in the source area. Your final results can develop more quickly, giving you the hair you want in a shorter amount of time.
What Can I Expect?
Here is a general idea of what you can look forward to when you choose to pursue hair restoration at our professional office.
Before you have your first treatment, one of our doctors will examine your scalp and hair loss to determine your candidacy for treatment. They will also answer any questions you may have about treatment or expected results.
To begin your treatment, your doctor will administer anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the hair follicle extraction. The follicles will be extracted one-by-one with an efficient automated handheld device. Once they are extracted, these follicles can be placed and begin to grow in their new location. You can expect to be able to return to your normal activities after your appointment thanks to this treatment’s non-invasive nature.
Once your follicles are in place, they will shed once before beginning to grow new hair. After 3-4 months, you should see significant hair growth begin. This growth will continue naturally, creating the appearance of thicker, more healthy hair. Results are permanent for most patients. If you experience progressive hair loss which may affect the treated area, your doctor can recommend a personalized treatment plan to maintain your ideal image.
Am I an Ideal Candidate?
In general, adult men and women who experience hair thinning or loss could be ideal candidates for this treatment. A good candidate should be healthy and experience mild to moderate hair loss. In addition, they must have enough healthy hair follicles in the back of their head to source their new hair growth. If you are unsure about your candidacy, one of our doctors can help evaluate your unique concerns.
