The FDA-approved NeoGraft™ device automates the surgical removal, collection, and placement of individual hair follicles, one at a time, eliminating the need to remove a large strip of skin and hair from the back of the scalp as in traditional methods known as a “linear-harvest Follicular Unit Transplant”, or “STRIP FUT”. With the NeoGraft™ device, individual hair follicles are targeted and removed without using a scalpel and stitches. This method is known as "Follicular-
Hair Loss in Men and Women
Over 40 million men suffer from hair loss with 40% of men having noticeable hair loss by the age 35, and 65% by age 60. For many men, hair loss is inevitable. It is a hereditary condition that increases with age. These genes may be passed from either the maternal or paternal side.
Approximately 21 million women suffer from hair loss with 40% of women having noticeable hair loss by the age of 40. The reasons for hair loss in women often have to do with heredity, hormonal changes, stress, illness, and poor nutrition.
Benefits of NeoGraft™
According to Dr. Young, the key benefits of the NeoGraft™ FUE hair transplant procedure are:
Least invasive procedure for hair transplantation
Patients feel little to no discomfort
• No unsightly linear scar or numbness where the donor hair is harvested
• No stitches or staples
• Shorter, more comfortable recovery
• Less activity restrictions after surgery, patients can typically go back to work the next day
• Very short haircuts are possible after surgery
• Transplants roughly twice as many hair grafts as manually performed FUE surgery
• Cuts the cost of treatment by as much as half as it reduces the need for additional surgeries
"Until now, FUE-type hair transplants were labor-intensive and time consuming, which meant that patients had to undergo long multiple surgeries to get the desired effect," Dr. Young said. "Now that a more efficient automated device is available, doctors can double the number of grafts transplanted per session or shorten procedure times, saving patients both time and money."
