NeoGraft Hair Restoration Treatments: How it Works
If you are experiencing hair loss, you may be considering a NeoGraft hair restoration treatment.
NeoGraft is a type of hair transplant procedure that is minimally invasive and does not require a scalpel or stitches. With NeoGraft, the patient’s hair is used to transplant follicles into the bald or thinning areas on their scalp.
How Does NeoGraft Work?
NeoGraft is a minimally invasive hair transplantation procedure that does not require the use of a scalpel, stitches, or staples. The NeoGraft device uses pneumatic pressure to extract individual follicular units from the donor area and implant them into the recipient area.
The NeoGraft hair restoration procedure is performed under local anesthesia in our office. You will be able to go home immediately after the procedure. The entire process takes about 3 hours.
Recovery time is minimal, and you can return to work the next day. Most people see initial results at 6 weeks post-treatment, with the final results at 12 weeks post-treatment.
What Are the Benefits of NeoGraft?
The benefits of Neograft include:
Minimal scarring - the tiny punches used in the Neograft procedure cause minimal scarring, which is barely visible after healing.
Speed - the Neograft procedure is much faster than traditional hair transplant methods, which can take hours or even days.
Precision - Neograft uses robotics to extract individual follicles, ensuring that the donor area is minimally damaged and that each follicle is transplanted in the correct location.
Ease of Use - Neograft is a handheld device that is easy to use. It does not require any special training or expertise to operate.
Little to No Downtime - unlike traditional hair transplant procedures, Neograft does not require any downtime. Patients can go back to their regular activities immediately after the procedure.
Who’s a Good Candidate for a NeoGraft Transplant?
NeoGraft is an excellent option for people who are not good candidates for traditional hair transplants. However, not everyone is a good candidate for this type of transplant.
People with certain heart conditions, bleeding conditions, and inflammatory conditions may not be good candidates for a NeoGraft transplant. It is important to discuss your medical history with your doctor to see if this procedure is right for you.
Side Effects of NeoGraft
NeoGraft is a safe and effective procedure that has very few known side effects or complications.
Potential side effects are:
Swelling. You may experience some swelling in the area where the grafts were harvested and implanted. This is usually temporary and will go away within a few days or weeks.
Scarring. As with any surgical procedure, there is always a risk of developing scars. However, the NeoGraft technique has been shown to produce very minimal scarring.
Infection. Again, this is a risk with any surgical procedure. However, your provider will take all necessary precautions to minimize the risk of infection.
