What Is NeoGraft?
NeoGraft is an FDA-cleared, automated hair transplant system that facilitates faster and more accurate follicle harvesting during follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedures. It works by using pneumatic pressure to slide out follicular unit grafts (groups of 1 to 4 hairs) from donor areas, and then transplant them into thinning areas.
This pressure prevents manual pulling or twisting that can damage follicles. It also eliminates the stitches and linear scars associated with traditional hair transplant procedures. Only small, round scars are left behind, which most people find are barely visible.
What Is a NeoGraft Procedure Like?
NeoGraft only requires local anesthesia injected into the scalp, so you’ll be awake and free to relax or watch TV throughout the treatment. Most people don’t experience discomfort and feel only some minor tugging as the follicles are harvested.
These follicles, which are taken from donor areas such as the back and sides of the head, are then carefully transplanted into areas of thinning. For many people, this includes the front of the hairline. Meticulous placement ensures the new hair will grow in a natural pattern and direction.
The full procedure takes between 4 and 6 hours, depending on how many grafts are transplanted.
Do I Have to Shave My Head Before NeoGraft?
You don’t have to shave your head before the procedure, though some small areas may need to be shaved to harvest the follicles. Dr. Collins will discuss these possible areas with you during your consultation.
What Is NeoGraft Recovery Like?
Most people return to their daily activities within 2 to 3 days and strenuous exercise within 10 days. The newly implanted follicles will shed 2 to 3 weeks after your procedure and then naturally grow back over the next 3 to 6 months.
How Long Do NeoGraft Results Last?
Results are long lasting, though natural age-related loss may still occur. If it does, additional treatments can address any new areas of thinning. Some people choose to complement their results with BOTOX® Cosmetic or dermal fillers for an even more rejuvenated appearance.
How Much Does NeoGraft Cost?
Pricing is determined per graft, and this number varies quite a bit from person to person. The best way to establish your personal pricing is to visit Dr. Collins for a private consultation.
