Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is NeoGraft®?
To put it simply, NeoGraft® is a cutting-edge hair restoration technique that harvests naturally occurring hair follicles by way of Follicular Unit Extraction, otherwise known as FUE. The FUE method is the most accurate and efficient hair restoration solution available.
What are the characteristics of an ideal NeoGraft candidate?
NeoGraft® may be right for you If you prefer having short hair in the back or both sides of your scalp, are an athlete who wants the least amount of activity restriction post procedure, or are someone who wishes to camouflage a past linear harvest or body hair transplant.
Overall, hair restoration candidates should be in good health with moderate hair loss and sufficient donor hair available. The denser the supply of donor hair, the better the results.
How does the NeoGraft® technology work?
NeoGraft® technology utilizes controlled pneumatic pressure to pull out each graft smoothly, preventing any damage that may be caused by pulling or twisting. This way, grafts can be implanted sooner, which keeps them as natural as possible for a fuller hairline.
When can patients expect to see results?
The science behind NeoGraft® is simple. Follicles are removed from the donor area. Once the donor hair is implanted into the balding area; the grafted hair stays in place for approximately 2-3 weeks. At that point, shedding occurs, and new hair growth begins within 3-4 months.
How long does the new hair last? Forever?
Even though NeoGraft® works to restore hair, the process of hair loss may contiue after transplantation. Some patients may require additional sessions to maintain results, especially if they suffer from male or female pattern baldness. The continuation of hair loss or a desire for more hair density may require additional NeoGraft® procedures. Your hair transplant surgeon will help you establish realistic expectations and hair restoration goals.
What is a “FUE” hair transplant?
FUE stands for “Follicular Unit Extraction.” It’s a state-of-the-art, minimally-invasive hair restoration technique that harvests singular hair follicles with no scalpel, incision, or stitches. That means no linear scar and results that look and feel natural.
Why choose NeoGraft® and not some other manual FUE technique?
Aside from no linear scar, little-to-no discomfort, and quick recovery, the NeoGraft® platform is highly ergonomic. This makes it easy for your hair transplant surgeon to accurately and efficiently harvest individual hair follicles. Plus, NeoGraft® patients reach their hair restoration goals with much less time in the procedure room.
Is NeoGraft® a good option for men and women?
Definitely. NeoGraft® is minimally-invasive, making it a great option for both men and women.
Should NeoGraft® patients get a particular haircut pre-procedure?
If you generally wear your hair long, your hair transplant surgeon can harvest by shaving small areas that can be covered by your other existing hair. If you generally wear your hair short, it helps to shave it close for maximum yield.
