Hair loss can be an embarrassing problem for both men and women. Male pattern baldness is primarily a hormonally-driven, genetically programmed loss of scalp hair. Women, on the other hand, can lose hair from vitamin deficiencies, hair products, androgen hormone imbalance or metabolic diseases such as thyroid deficiencies.
Fortunately, there is a solution for people who live with this condition. NeoGraft is the revolutionary method of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) used to transplant hair for both men and women. The procedure is minimally-invasive and performed in the office under local anesthesia, so the recovery time is typically just one day.
The NeoGraft device uses special technology to quickly and painlessly remove the hair follicles from the back of the head and implant them into the balding areas. The controlled pneumatic pressure allows the physician to slide the graft out smoothly so there is no damage. NeoGraft is faster than other hair transplantation methods, therefore the grafts can be re-implanted sooner, which increases the success of the grafting process.
• No scalpel incision, staples, or linear scars
• Large areas in a single session
• Little to no risk of complications
• Quick, 1-day recovery time
• Less activity restriction than traditional strip methods
• Reduces the need for additional procedures
Once the transplanted hair follicle is placed in the balding area of your scalp, the grafted hair will stay in place for 2 to 3 weeks before shedding. After the hair sheds, a new growth cycle will begin in about 3 to 4 months. When the hair regrows, it will continue to grow and go through cycles just like the rest of the hairs on your body. The result is a healthy, natural looking head of hair.
