NeoGraft: The Best Hair Restoration Treatment Option?
Hair loss can be a troubling issue that can undermine one’s self-confidence. There is no denying its impact on emotional well being. In fact, the effects of hair loss in men are nothing trivial. It is for this reason so many men seek ways to prevent further hair loss or regrow hair that is gone.
Hair loss isn’t exclusive to men. It affects millions of people, both men and women, from all walks of life. One of the most exciting developments in hair restoration is hair transplantation with NeoGraft.
NeoGraft is an advanced hair restoration technology. Classically, hair restoration relied on follicular unit transplant (FUT). This is known as the strip method. It is called the strip method because a strip of scalp is removed in the back of the head. This piece of tissue becomes the donor site for hair follicles. The hair transplant teams cuts the scalp up into hundreds or thousands of pieces with each piece being a hair follicle. These follicles are then implanted into the scalp in the same way it is done with this wonderful machine. So what’s the difference?
This NeoGraft technique is a follicular unit extraction method (FUE) for hair restoration. It is a minimally invasive option in which the transplant doctor removes single unit follicles one at a time with very small punches. That is, no big incisions. No big incisions means no big scars. In fact, the punches are so small with NeoGraft that they are generally not visible.
NeoGraft is an extraction device. So when someone refers to a NeoGraft hair transplant, the truth is it’s an automated FUE hair extraction. The transplantation of the extracted follicles is still a method one performs with their hands. It is the true skill and artistry of the actual implantation that will deliver the beautiful, natural results you desire. But if you can get there without big, ugly scars, then why subject yourself to s strip procedure?
