NeoGraft is a minimally invasive hair restoration procedure that is now performed the world over on thousands of patients. It has consistently delivered exceptional results and is far more precise and accurate than manual extraction methods such as strip harvesting. There’s no surgery involved and no scarring.
How NeoGraft Works
NeoGraft is an automated hair transplant system that efficiently harvests and transplants hair follicles into areas with noticeable hair loss. The NeoGraft hair transplant procedure involves two key steps: Harvesting and Placement using a special device.
The Harvesting stage takes between 2 and 4 hours. Local anesthetic is applied at the donor site and we extract individual groups of follicles using the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) device. There’s no discomfort and patients hardly feel anything because the extraction area is completely numb.
The Placement stage occurs the same day after a short break. The length of time varies by individual because it’s based on the amount of hair being transplanted. The receiving site is numbed with local anesthetic and extracted follicles are placed in the appropriate pattern in thinning or balding spots.
During the post-procedure period, the follicles start to settle into the treated areas and are usually secure within 7 to 10 days. The hair begins to grow back just like it does on the rest of the scalp and patients enjoy visible results within a few months.
NeoGraft delivers permanent results because the follicle is properly rooted into its new position in the scalp and stays alive. However, some people may need maintenance treatments or additional sessions if they have developed male pattern baldness (MPD) or other conditions where some or many hair follicles affected by the aging process.
Still, hair from a transplanted follicle will continue to grow at the same rate as other hairs on the scalp. Patients with more hair density and fullness naturally can expect fuller results as the hair grows back. NeoGraft is very effective for recreating a natural looking hairline.
