Millions of people worldwide suffer from hair loss. If you’re among them, you know how devastating it can be to deal with losing your hair. Many people try various OTC and home treatments with little or no success and become discouraged, but don’t despair. There are several professional treatment options that are very effective in repairing your hair. Such a treatment is revolutionary. Neograft hair transplant.
What is a neograft?
Neograft is one of the newest developments in hair transplant technology. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a minimally invasive, semi-automatic version of the transplant method. During a traditional FUE transplant, the surgeon takes hair follicles from the sides or back of your scalp and manually transplants them into your thinned or bald areas. Neograft uses an advanced medical device to collect follicles from the donor area and place them in the treatment area. The consistency and precision of the instrument minimizes trauma to the scalp and maintains the health of the grafts for better results and faster recovery and recovery times.
Benefits of Neograft
Neograft is less invasive than other transplant methods, includes both FUE and FUT methods. This is because the device can precisely control the depth of insertion, which means less discomfort and faster recovery time.
Neograft causes less damage to hair follicles. This is because the device gently extracts follicles through suction, which reduces trauma to both the scalp and follicles.
Neograft is faster. The semi-automatic nature of a Neograft transplant is much faster than the traditional manual method. No need for stitching also makes the process take less time.
Neograft reduces scarring. Because the follicles are widely collected from the donor site, there is no linear scar on the back of the head and the precision of the device reduces the risk of scarring at both the donor and transplant sites.
Neograft creates a natural looking hairline. The device controls and changes the depth of the additions to create a completely natural look. Even at the hairline, no one can say that you have had a hair transplant.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Neograft?
Neograft is an excellent option to consider if you are suffering from genetic hair loss and are looking for an all-natural-looking solution. This procedure is great for those with excessive hair loss in certain areas, as seen with male and female pattern hair loss. Neograft is also a good choice for those who are uncomfortable with the thought of scalpels and stitches associated with other transplant methods. If this explains your hair loss and you have had poor results using other more traditional hair loss treatments, you may be a good candidate for a Neograft transplant.
How is the process?
Advice- The first step in the process is consultation. We will thoroughly evaluate your scalp and hair loss level to determine if this treatment is right for you and decide on an action plan. We will ask about your medical history, allergies and current medications. After gathering the information we need, we will discuss your needs and goals and develop a treatment plan. Ask as many questions as you want. We want you to be fully informed and comfortable with every step of the process.
Transport- Before the procedure begins, your scalp is anesthetized with local anesthesia. Next, the Neograft device is used to gently remove each follicle from the donor sites. The removed follicles will then be sorted and treated before being transported to their new home in the treatment area. To achieve natural and uniform results, the surgeon must take care to place the follicles in the natural direction of hair growth and distribute the follicles evenly according to the number of hairs each contains. This is the most time consuming part of the procedure. After the roots are sorted and prepared, the device cuts them into the treatment area and places them at various depths. Depending on the size of the area to be transplanted, it may take between 3-8 hours. Because the process is long, it can sometimes be broken up into shorter sessions to make it more comfortable and manageable.
After Transplant- You can expect to experience mild swelling at the donor and treatment sites initially. It is normal for the transplanted hair to shed in the first 2-3 weeks after the procedure. This is because the follicles enter a resting phase to heal and adapt to their new location on the scalp. New growth will begin to appear within a few months after healing is complete. At first, newly grown hair may appear finer and softer than the original hair. Over time, the hair will continue to thicken and strengthen as it grows. You can expect to see the most significant results about 6-9 months after the procedure.
