Traditional hair restoration procedures usually employ a technique known as the strip method, which involves surgically removing a strip from the patient’s scalp (the back of the head) to be used as the donor site. This can leave a permanent linear scar. NeoGraft®, on the other hand, uses a minimally invasive method that is a variation of the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique, which uses an automated handheld device to harvest individual hair follicles from areas that consist of terminal hair, which are naturally resistant to hair loss. It then implants those grafts at the site of hair loss, where, over time, they will regrow as healthy, fully functioning hair. As a result, NeoGraft® does not leave a linear scar, is more comfortable, and requires much less recovery time.

NeoGraft® hair restoration procedures are designed to deliver excellent results for both men and women. While most people can get the treatment, there are some factors that come into play to determine if you’re an ideal candidate. Taken together, these include the number of grafts necessary to produce the desired results, the density and quality of the donor hair, hair texture, and potential for future hair loss. Your treatment provider will be able to help to determine if you are a suitable candidate for this hair restoration procedure.
NeoGraft® uses a minimally invasive method that is a variation of the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique. It is an advanced, minimally invasive hair transplant method that allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the back of the head (donor area) without a scalpel or stitches, and therefore leaves no linear scar.
Recovery time after a NeoGraft® hair restoration procedure is much faster than traditional hair transplants, because there is no incision involved. The newly implanted grafts may feel tender and appear slightly raised at first, but this should subside in one week. You may also see some scabbing, but this should also flake off within a week. Your physician will instruct you on how to properly care for your new grafts, but most patients are able to return to their usual routine within two weeks after completing the procedure.
Depending on the number of grafts, the treatment can take anywhere from 4-10 hours. The number of treatments will depend on your unique circumstance, but in many cases, just one procedure can be enough to attain desirable results.
There's typically very little pain or discomfort after the procedure. You may experience a slight amount of drainage for the first day after your procedure, but this is minimal. You must refrain from strenuous activity for two weeks, to ensure you do not cause any harm to the newly implanted grafts. You can expect the newly implanted grafts to be slightly raised in the first week after the procedure. Around three to four days later, they will start to scab over and then possibly shed. Shedding is good and a natural part of the healing process.
