Hair Restoration Q&A

What is NeoGraft?

NeoGraft is an advanced follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair restoration system that uses cutting-edge technology to take FUE to a higher level of precision. NeoGraft is the only FDA-cleared hair restoration system that uses pneumatic controls for precision extraction and placement of individual hair follicles. The result is a painless, minimally invasive procedure that delivers a natural-looking head of hair every time.

What are the benefits of NeoGraft?

NeoGraft uses innovative technology that extracts naturally occurring groupings of up to four hairs from a donor area of your head and then immediately places them in the target area. NeoGraft offers superior results for men and women, no matter the length of their hair. 

Additional benefits of NeoGraft include:

  • Minimal discomfort
  • No incisions or staples
  • No linear scar
  • Minimal downtime
  • Few activity restrictions

Most patients can return to work and other daily activities within 24 hours of the NeoGraft procedure.

Is NeoGraft right for me?

If you suffer from male or female pattern baldness or thinning hair, you’re in good overall health, and you have sufficient donor hair in the back of your scalp, you're likely a good candidate for NeoGraft. It’s an ideal option for patients who seek natural-looking hair restoration that isn’t noticeable, even with short haircuts. NeoGraft is also highly effective for medium and long hair.

In addition, the procedure can help to reduce the appearance of visible linear scars from past “strip” hair restoration surgeries.

How soon after NeoGraft will I see results?

The NeoGraft procedure transplants living follicles that naturally grow and shed hair in cycles. The transplanted hair will continue its normal cycle, remaining in the treated area for two to three weeks before shedding. It can take about three to four months for the next growth cycle to begin; once this occurs, your hair will continue to grow normally, offering natural, healthy-looking results.

How long will my results last?

Pattern baldness and other progressive types of hair loss do continue after your NeoGraft transplant. Depending on your individual hair loss, you may need maintenance treatments in the future. Some patients also elect to have additional treatments to increase hair density in the balding or thinning area.
