NeoGraft is a ground breaking system for hair restoration, providing excellent results using the no-scalpel and no-stitch Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique. The NeoGraft system is the first and only follicular unit harvesting and implantaiton system to be FDA (Food and Drug Administration) cleared for hair restoration.
NeoGraft’s transplant system is unique in that it facilitates the automated collection of hair follicles during FUE. This technique significantly increases the accuracy and speed of the procedure, as compared to each step being performed by hand. With NeoGraft, more men and women are now able to take advantage of the hair restoration process as the system is less time consuming than traditional FUE procedures.
NeoGraft technology means that individual follicles can be easily removed from areas of dense hair. There is no longer the need for large strips of hair follicles to be removed from the back of the scalp, as with older procedures; a process that often resulted in unsightly linear scarring. The NeoGraft FUE system can restore a full head of hair without the linear scars or other telltale signs of the transplant procedure.
The Follicular Unit Extraction method has proven to be extremely successful at providing the precise, artistic placement of new hair follicles. The results are an attractive, natural looking hairline and improved density. Compared to traditional hair transplant procedures, FUE has also shown to have an easier, shorter recovery time.
By adding the NeoGraft system to a FUE procedure, the one-by-one surgical removal, collection, and placement of hair follicles is automated. The donor follicles are always removed from areas of the head with successful hair growth, which can then be expected to continue in the desired location. Utilizing clinically grown, living tissues also allows the transplanted hair to experience a healthy growth cycle.
After the hair follicle has been placed in the target location, it will stay in place for two to three weeks; then the hair will fall out. This process allows for new hair growth to take place, which can be seen over the next three to four months. From this point on, the hair will continue to grow naturally, providing lifelong, aesthetically pleasing results.
Ideal candidates for NeoGraft will be in overall good health, experiencing mild to moderate hair loss, and with a sufficient amount donor hair on the back of the scalp. Patients should also fully understand the FUE procedure and hold reasonable expectations for their results. Those patients with more donor hair or thicker hair density will see an even greater final outcome.
Individuals seeking natural looking hair transplant results, with the choice to wear their hair short on the back and sides, may make an excellent candidate for the NeoGraft system.
Patients such as athletes, those with vigorous exercise routines, or physically strenuous jobs can benefit from the low activity restrictions that FUE allows. Additionally, patients who have had previous linear harvests are ideal for correction with NeoGraft. The FUE technique can cover up scars that resulted from earlier hair restoration procedures, as well as improve poor transplant results. NeoGraft can also be used to restore hair elsewhere on the body, on areas such as the chest, arms, and legs.
An FUE transplant, using the NeoGraft system, will provide long term, aesthetically pleasing results. The natural looking hairline will be full, and the transplanted areas will look complete. While the density of the hair will vary from person to person, the results from NeoGraft can last a lifetime.
The NeoGraft FUE system for hair restoration is an ongoing process. Hair loss often continues after a transplant, depending on its cause. Desired results may require continued maintenance, prescription hair loss medications, or the addition of future transplant sessions. During the initial consultation appointment, the surgeon will determine the specific balding pattern, the potential cause, and estimate the number of NeoGraft procedures that will be necessary to achieve desired results.
