How Does NeoGraft Hair Restoration Work?

The two hair transplant techniques that have been the most popular are follicular unit transplant (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE). NeoGraft is a form of follicular unit extraction that obtains viable hair follicles in small units that contain a few hairs each. The process involves the use of an automated handheld device to extract the hair follicles from the donor area. The insertion of the follicles in the recipient site is also performed using this device. Semi-automation is believed to increase the precision of the procedure, achieving optimal placement without long incisions or significant tissue disruption. Because the hair follicles at the back of the head are typically not affected by the factors that cause thinning and balding on the crown of the head, the donor site recovers fully and regrows new hair at your normal rate of growth. The follicles that are transplanted develop their own blood supply soon after their insertion, resulting in new hair growth in the affected area.

Who Is The Ideal Candidate For NeoGraft Hair Restoration?

Many adult males can be good candidates for the NeoGraft hair restoration procedure. If you are in good general health, have stable hair growth on some part of your scalp, and understand what can be accomplished with your hair restoration procedure, you may be ready to reclaim a full head of hair. During your consultation, your doctor will ask you a lot of questions about your health, your medical history, and even your lifestyle. We understand that the treatment process for hair restoration requires an investment of your time and money. We want you to get the best possible results, so we look at all of the factors that may influence your treatment process and outcome. Fortunately, NeoGraft is suitable for many cases of moderate hair loss, provided that there is sufficient hair on the back of the head to harvest for areas that are thinning.

How Long Will It Take To See Results?

It can take several months to see the final outcome of your NeoGraft procedure. After the transplant occurs, your body will go through a “shock” response. In this state, the transplanted hairs will fall out. The follicles are still in place and hard at work receiving their new blood supply that will stimulate a consistent, thriving hair growth cycle. A few weeks to months after the transplanted hair falls out, you may begin to notice the emergence of new hair growth in both the recipient site and the donor site. Between six to 12 months after your NeoGraft treatment, you can expect to be enjoying fuller, thicker, more robust hair growth.

How Should I Prepare For My Hair Loss Treatment?

Your doctor will inform you if you need to take special measures before your NeoGraft procedure. If you take medication to help slow the hair loss process, you may be advised to stop its use shortly before your treatment. This is highly individualized and will be based on several factors, including the severity of hair loss. Starting at least two weeks before the procedure, your doctor may advise you to refrain from drinking alcohol and from cutting your hair. It is important that your hair be the right length at the time of your treatment to optimize the harvesting process. If you smoke, you must stop at least one week before your appointment for NeoGraft hair restoration. Doing so will help your body increase its oxygenation of tissue, which will be important to your healing after treatment. You may also be advised to avoid certain medications and supplements that could thin your blood.

What Can I Expect After My NeoGraft Hair Restoration Treatment?

After your NeoGraft procedure, your scalp may feel numb for a short time. As the anesthetic wears off, you can expect some discomfort. You may be given prescription-strength acetaminophen to help manage this side effect. Tiny scabs will form on your scalp shortly after your treatment is done. It is important that you refrain from rubbing or picking at them. They are a necessary part of the recovery process and will gradually fall off over the course of several days. You may begin washing your hair again after 24 hours. When you do, please take care to follow the instructions given to you for washing and drying the area. While your scabs may take up to two weeks to slough off, you may return to work and light activity as soon as you feel comfortable. It is necessary to avoid strenuous work and exercise for two weeks following your treatment.

Are There Any Side Effects From NeoGraft Hair Restoration?

Aside from the formation of tiny scabs in the donor and recipient sites, you may experience other side effects from our NeoGraft treatment. These include redness, prolonged numbness or discomfort, swelling, and cyst formation at your extraction sites. There is a risk of infection but we do not expect this to occur if you are diligent about following your aftercare instructions. If you have questions or concerns about your hair transplant side effects or recovery process, please do not hesitate to contact us!
