Permanent Hair Restoration
Hair restoration treatments are the best solution for anyone struggling to retain a head full of beautiful hair. The NeoGraft hair restoration treatment utilizes cutting edge technology to safely transplant healthy hair follicles to thin or balding areas on the scalp. The difference between this procedure and traditional hair restoration surgeries is that NeoGraft Rhode Island is the procedure that does not rely on scalpels or sutures of any kind to extract and replace hair into a targeted location.
How NeoGraft Works
Thinning hair creates problems for both male and female patients, but thanks to the advances in hair restoration surgery this is not a problem people have to live with for the rest of their lives. NeoGraft Boston treatment is a minimally invasive method of follicular unit extraction (FUE) that naturally transplants hair into individual follicular units in the targeted site of balding or thinning. Each unit includes up to four individual hair follicles extracted from a donor area from the patient and placed in the recipient area predetermined by the cosmetic surgeon.
Traditionally, hair restoration included surgical removal of hair-bearing strips from the back of the head and transferred to the balding locations on the top of the patient’s head or hairline. This is known as follicular unit transplantation (FUT), or the strip method. After the portion of the scalp was removed, sutures and surgical stitches are applied to close the scalp leaving the patient with large permanent scars. However, today patients can achieve the same results from NeoGraft without the noticeable scarring, bleeding or tightness from stitching.
After the hair follicle grafts are harvested from the NeoGraft device, they are held in a sterile solution that provides them with moisture before they are implanted individually. Each recipient follicle is created to the exact specifications of the graft and inserted to the precisely measured depth on the scalp.
NeoGraft Boston Candidates
Everyone loses up to 100 hairs a day, but living with hair loss can be a difficult experience as your body ages. About two out of three men experience hair loss by age 60 and most of the time it is due to male pattern baldness, a type of hair loss caused by a combination of genes and male sex hormones, which follows a pattern in which the hairline recedes at the temples. In women, hair loss is closely related to genetics. Androgenetic alopecia, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, is the most common cause of hair loss. This gene can be inherited from the mother or the father, and if both parents have it, then it is most likely going to be passed down to their offspring.
Candidates for NeoGraft Boston include:
- Patients with sufficient donor hair
- Men and women with frontal or partial hair loss
- Previous hair transplant patients who wish to reduce scarring
- Healthy patients who experience premature balding
Quick Recovery for Natural Results
Hair follicles are taken from the back of the head and transplanted individually to the areas of the scalp that need restoration. Local anesthesia is utilized to keep pain and discomfort to a minimum, but the effects will wear off within a couple of hours after the surgery. Once the transplant is complete, you can return home and resume normal activities the very next day. Each procedure transplants approximately twice the amount of follicles than the traditional stripping method, which means less of a priority to undergo a second procedure.
Once the hair grafts have been placed, the dormant bulbs will remain under the skin for about 12 weeks. Upon, this time significant hair growth will be restored in the transplanted site on the scalp at about 6 to 8 months after the procedure. After that, natural hair will continue to grow normally and your final result of full and healthy hair will be achieved after 9 months from the surgery date.
