NeoGraft® introduces the “state-of-the-art” solution for hair loss. This game-changing technology automates the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method to give patients more natural looking results with minimal downtime, no linear scaring and no stitches. Hair Restoration should be unnoticeable to all but those you tell. To many, a full head of hair represents attractiveness and desirability both personally and professionally. For this reason, it is vital to understand what effects a hair restoration procedure can have on your daily interactions with people and in all other aspects of your life. Hair Restoration should be unnoticeable to all but those you tell. The facts are that approximately 50 million men and approximately 30 million women suffer from male/female pattern baldness or thinning hair. Many potential patients shy-away from (or are not candidates for) the traditional “strip method” of hair replacement because of the slow recovery time, the loss of feeling at the incision site, the tiny linear scar on the back of the head, or the amount of post-operative pain involved. After much research, we have chosen to offer the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method utilizing the NeoGraft® Automated Hair Transplantation system. The FUE method of hair transplantation removes individual hair follicles from the scalp in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1-4 hairs and are then placed in the areas of the scalp where balding has occurred. Why choose the NeoGraft® procedure? SUPERIOR RESULTS – More natural looking hair, short or long for both men and women. ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY – Automated technology, least invasive procedure for hair transplantation. GENTLE - Little to no discomfort. No scalpel incision, no staples, no linear scar. EFFECTIVE - Less activity restrictions than traditional strip methods. DISCRETE - Patients can typically go back to work in 1-3 days. AFFORDABLE - We have programs available to meet your exact needs. The NeoGraft® system is the first and only FDA cleared follicular unit harvesting and implantation system. The NeoGraft® system delivers automation of the FUE technique, the most advanced technique in the hair transplant industry. This revolutionary system uses pneumatic controls to precisely extract complete individual hair follicles which can be immediately transplanted to the selected areas of the scalp. The NeoGraft® automated hair transplantation system is the only complete harvesting system on the market and has the only ‘NO TOUCH’ implantation technology. Hair Restoration with NeoGraft® technology provides absolute exact harvesting and placement, delivering repeatable results. With NeoGraft’s technology, each follicle is removed individually while the patient is comfortable. A natural looking head of hair is created with this minimally-invasive procedure. Hair loss can be a very emotional part of the natural aging process and seeking ways to curb this process used to be a challenge. NeoGraft’s advanced technology offers a discrete solution to hair loss, allowing patients to achieve natural looking results with no linear scar, minimal downtime and a shorter recovery period. Hair restoration with the NeoGraft® procedure is unnoticeable, making it your secret to tell. — Step 1 —Extraction of Hair Follicles Extraction or harvesting is removal of the follicular units (hair) from the donor region (the area in the back of your head between your ears, below your crown, above the nape of your neck), as this hair is genetically programmed to resist testosterone. The NeoGraft device cores each individual follicular unit and then gently removes it with simultaneous suction. — Step 2 —Counting, Trimming and Sorting of Grafts After the follicular units are extracted, they are carefully separated by size. The average follicular unit contains anywhere from 1-3 hairs. It is imperative to separate single hair units from multiple hair units in order to create a natural appearing result. — Step 3 —Recipient Site Creation Recipient sites are created in the desired areas of balding or thinning, utilizing the proper depth and angulation to ensure graft viability, as these will be the new homes of the extracted grafts. The hair transplant surgeon will work with you to design a gender and age appropriate hairline that is specific to you. — Step 4 —Placement Of The Hair Grafts Each individual follicular unit is then implanted into each of the recipient sites in order to achieve the desired outcome. Proper depth and angulation are critical to ensure maximum graft take rate in order to deliver a natural appearing result, as hair grows in different angles depending on the site of the scalp. Who is a NeoGraft® candidate? Men and women who are suffering from hair loss and are looking for a minimally invasive solution that offers more natural looking results. Patients who would like the option of wearing a very short haircut in the back or sides of their scalp. Patients who want the least amount of activity restriction (e.g. athletes) after their hair transplant procedure. Patients who need “scar camouflage” to hide prior linear harvests or scars.
