How Common is Hair Loss?
Approximately 50 million men and 30 million women in the Trusted Source Androgenic Alopecia Medline Plus Go to Source United States suffer from male/ female pattern baldness or thinning hair, typically due to aging. For many of these patients, a full head of hair means confidence and desirability both in their personal and professional lives. For patients who have thinning hair, or have lost large patches of their hair, a restoration procedure like NeoGraft can improve all aspects of their day-to-day lives and empower them to be more confident.
Benefits of NeoGraft Hair Restoration
NeoGraft hair restoration provides patients with numerous benefits. Reasons to choose NeoGraft as your hair loss solution include:
- It is the least invasive procedure for hair transplantation available. Patients receiving the procedure feel minimal to no discomfort.
- NeoGraft does not use staples.
- The procedure does not leave an unsightly linear scar.
- The procedure allows for flexibility in hair style and length.
- NeoGraft has a shorter recovery time than many other hair restoration procedures, typically allowing patients to return to work the next day. NeoGraft also has fewer restrictions on patients resuming normal activities.
- Most importantly, NeoGraft provides natural looking results using a patient’s own hair.
The procedure for NeoGraft hair restoration uses a technique called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), which is the process of harvesting individual hair follicles from a donor area and transplanting them to a recipient area. FUE is a safe, minimally invasive and relatively minor procedure that does not require sedation. Patients receiving the procedure are simply given a local anesthetic, so they do not feel any discomfort at the donor or recipient areas during the procedure.The NeoGraft Automated FUE can also be used to fix visible scar lines from previous hair transplant “strip” surgeries, and to fill in or camouflage other surgical scars on the scalp, eyebrows or beard.
How NeoGraft Works
Recovery After NeoGraft
After NeoGraft hair restoration treatment, some patients report slight discomfort, but this is minimal and not common to all patients. It is normal to experience some drainage the day after NeoGraft, but this will reside quickly. At first, implanted hair grafts may appear slightly raised. After a few days, they may begin to scab over and begin to shed. This is a normal part of the healing process.
We encourage our patients to avoid strenuous activity for Trusted Source NeoGraft Patient Information Venus Treatments Go to Source two weeks after NeoGraft treatment, so as not to harm newly-implanted hair grafts.
