Neograft vs. Strip Method

Traditional hair restoration procedures provided thicker hair in balding areas of the scalp but also resulted in a long, noticeable, primitive scar around the entire scalp. The technology of NeoGraft is able to provide thicker and more natural-looking results without any scarring. Ideal candidates for NeoGraft are those whose hair is thinning on some locations of the scalp, such as the forehead, hair line, or the crown, but still have hair on the back of their head thick enough for transplantation. Traditional hair restoration treatments would actually remove sections of the scalp which still produced thick hair and transplant it to sections of the scalp which suffered from hair loss. NeoGraft, however, circumvents the entire arduous process of using a graft of your scalp by transplanting the hair follicles themselves.

Neograft (Donor Site)

The advanced NeoGraft technology removes each individual hair follicle chosen to transplant and inserts that hair follicle into the scalp where balding has occurred. This technique avoids the noticeable scarring typical of tradition hair restoration procedures.  NeoGraft creates thicker hair and a more natural hairline because  there is more control exactly where each follicle is placed.   NeoGraft’s success rate is higher than traditional hair restoration procedures, because the follicles are transferred to their new location in the scalp directly after being harvested. Patients should keep in mind, however, that NeoGraft is a slow process while waiting for hair to grow. Like natural hair, hair growth takes time. Once the grafted hair sheds within two to three weeks, patients may look forward to their newly advanced hairline within four to six months.
