What is NeoGraft Hair Restoration?
This leading-edge technology provides a safe, gentle, and relatively non-invasive way for both men and women to bring back the hairlines and fullness that they had in their youth. The NeoGraft hair transplant system is an automated hair restoration procedure for hair loss in both men and women that makes follicular unit extraction (FUE) and transplantation far more efficient and accurate than previous devices.
With the NeoGraft system, individual follicles are removed in their small, natural occurring groupings from locations where the hair is thick (the donor area). Each group of 1 to 4 hairs is then artistically implanted in the areas of the scalp where thinning or balding has begun. The result is a completely natural hair transplantation using your own living, growing hair.
Who Can Benefit from NeoGraft Hair Transplantation?
The significant advantages of NeoGraft over other methods of hair transplantation make this an obvious choice for men and women seeking to restore their hairlines and fill in thinning or balding patches on their scalps.
The best candidates for NeoGraft hair restoration are men and women who:
- Are in good general health and have no complicating medical conditions
- Have sufficient “donor hair” at the back of the scalp for use in the transplantation
- Want to minimize the scarring that characterized earlier transplantation methods
- Are too busy to afford the lengthy downtime associated with the “strip” procedure
- Want to utilize the NeoGraft system to cover up old scarring from previous hair transplantations
- Have reasonable and realistic goals based on the amount of donor hair available
What is the Procedure for NeoGraft Hair Transplantation?
NeoGraft Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a technique that allows hair follicle harvesting without the use of a scalpel or stitches. It works with small amounts of hair called follicular units, rather than larger strips.
After the donor and recipient areas are numbed, NeoGraft uses gentle pneumatic pressure to extract and implant individual hair follicles and small clusters. Since NeoGraft uses the exact amount of pressure needed, patients can expect less discomfort, a shorter recovery time, and an overall less invasive procedure.
NeoGraft can produce as many as several thousand hair follicles in one session. This high output capability makes it the ideal hair transplant method for a person with moderate to severe hair loss. People with mild hair loss will benefit from the minimally invasive, no scar results of this modern system. More can be accomplished in one visit than with previous methods. NeoGraft’s automated nature also minimizes the risk of nerve damage and infection.
How Long Does NeoGraft Hair Restoration Take?
Depending on the number of grafts needed, NeoGraft can take between 3 to 8 hours to complete. Some patients will want multiple sessions for more grafts.
Are there Side Effects of the Procedure?
Possible side effects of the NeoGraft New Jersey procedure include pain, swelling, redness, and bleeding.
What are the Benefits of NeoGraft Hair Transplant?
- Least invasive hair restoration procedure
- No staples or stitches
- No linear scar
- Little or no discomfort
- No numbness in the donor area
- Shorter recovery time than previous procedures
- More grafts can be done than with manual FUE
Does the Hair Restoration Procedure Produce Permanent Results?
Once healing has occurred, the results you get from NeoGraft are permanent. Hair can be combed, styled, and dyed without worry. Of course, aging will continue and this could mean more hair loss in the future.
What is the Recovery Time for NeoGraft Hair Restoration?
Mild physical activity, such as walking, can be resumed immediately after the procedure. However, patients should wait a few days (or until instructed) to wash their hair. Hair can be washed with direct water stream to the scalp in two weeks. More strenuous physical activity, like working out at the gym, can be resumed in three weeks.
A Final Note About NeoGraft Hair Transplants
