Understanding the Advantages of NeoGraft® Hair Restoration
For patients who have suffered hair loss, NeoGraft® treatment offers the most natural-looking results with a minimal chance of complications. The NeoGraft® system utilizes the advanced follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique, and automates it using specialized technology. Once the system has extracted a follicular unit, or natural grouping of hairs, it will precisely place the hair graft in the treatment area. This automated technology is just one of the many advantages of NeoGraft®. The Pittsburgh, PA cosmetic surgery practice of Dr. Dennis Hurwitz is among the leading national providers of this hair restoration treatment. We have helped countless patients achieve their goal of a thick, full head of hair that looks completely natural. If you have experienced hair loss or thinning, and would like to learn more about why more and more patients are turning to NeoGraft®, please contact our office and make an appointment with Dr. Hurwitz.
The NeoGraft® Hair Restoration Procedure
NeoGraft® features automated FUE, a technique which harvests groups of healthy hair follicles from a donor site, typically on the back of the patient's head. After the follicular unit is extracted, it will be placed in the treatment area. For most patients, this is towards the hairline at the front of the head. The NeoGraft® system uses specialized technology to ensure each follicular unit is harvested and placed in an optimal location with great efficiency.
Why Choose NeoGraft®?
Follicular unit transplantation (FUT), another popular type of hair restoration, requires removing a strip of the scalp from the donor areas in order to extract an adequate amount of healthy hair follicles. This method involves scalpels, sutures and significant downtime following the procedure to rest and recover. The NeoGraft® system can transplant more follicular units without requiring an extended recovery period. Most patients are able to return to their normal routines immediately following their procedure.
Because the NeoGraft® system extracts follicular units through tiny incisions that are created with great precision, it further minimizes the risk of damage to the surrounding tissue and infection. Although patients may experience some pain, swelling, redness, and bleeding in both the donor and treatment sites, the system results in fewer noticeable side effects than other methods of hair restoration.
NeoGraft®'s automated technology has been shown to consistently achieve higher success rates than traditional FUE. Because the individual follicular units are targeted, extracted, and placed in the treatment area relatively quickly, there is a lessened risk the hair grafts will become damaged. The NeoGraft® procedure also has the ability to transfer more follicular units in a shorter amount of time, meaning we can treat patients with moderate to severe hair loss in just one session. Other restorative methods can require multiple eight-hour "mega sessions."
