The Benefits of NeoGraft®
NeoGraft® is the first minimally invasive, automatic hair transplantation system to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This state-of-the-art solution to hair loss:
-is the least invasive procedure of its kind
-involves no scalpel incision, no sutures, and no linear scar
-allows for the treatment of large areas of the scalp in a single session
-has the fastest healing time of any surgical hair replacement option, with most patients able to return to the normal activities the day after surgery
-reduces the need for additional procedures
At the heart of the NeoGraft® procedure is the FUE method of hair transplantation. Most surgeons use the “strip” method of transplanting hair, surgically removing a portion of the scalp from the back of the head and then creating follicular units from this portion. While this method is easier for surgeons to perform and generally less expensive for patients, it is a relatively invasive procedure that results in a visible linear scar at the back of the head.
With FUE, however, hair follicles are removed individually from the donor area and placed in the thinning areas on the top of the head. As a result, there is less bleeding and discomfort, fewer complications, and more natural-looking results associated with FUE than with the “strip” method. Unfortunately, this technique is also more difficult to master than the “strip” technique, which is why most surgeons don’t offer FUE.
That’s where the NeoGraft® device comes in.
The NeoGraft® device fully automates both the extraction and implantation phases of hair transplantation, thereby making it a faster, more effective procedure that no longer relies exclusively on the skill of the surgeon to produce outstanding results.
