NeoGraft Hair Transplant System Hair Loss Treatments
In our commitment to bringing the latest technology, we are proud to announce the addition of the “state-of-the-art” NeoGraft™ Hair Transplantation System, the most advanced hair restoration system ever developed!
NO LINEAR SCAR. NO SUTURES. NO SCALPEL. MINIMAL DOWNTIME
NeoGraft™ is the “game-changing” medical advancement that hair loss patients have been anxiously awaiting as it provides the most natural-looking result ever possible.
NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW YOU HAD A HAIR TRANSPLANT–UNDETECTABLE
The NeoGraft™ provides the ability to move individual hair follicles in a minimally-invasive fashion, and provide similar volume as the conventional method. NeoGraft™ is a miraculous advancement to the traditional process currently used by most hair restoration facilities. NeoGraft’s™ advanced instrumentation and automation transform the hair transplantation procedure, and provide unparalelled quality and consistency in the process, promoting higher graft/hair viability. NeoGraft ™ was recently introduced into the United States, is FDA approved, and has been used in Europe and Asia for a decade. As one of the first providers in the Country, it is now conveniently available to patients at Young Medical Spa ® in Center Valley, Lansdale, and King of Prussia PA.
OVER 10,000 NEOGRAFT HAIR TRANSPLANT PROCEDURES PERFORMED
Hair Transplantation requires artistic ability and surgical skill. Our technician’s many years of experience with the use of the NeoGraft ™ assists Dr. Young and
Dr. Otero in creating the most natural hair profile for patients ever. In our years of aesthetic experience, we have not seen another technology or procedure deliver such outstanding results, and that is the reason we have chosen to exclusively offer NeoGraft™ for hair transplantation at our two locations.
“STRIP” METHOD VS. NEOGRAFT – OLD VS. NEW
The traditional method of hair transplantation has been considered to be barbaric by those patients who have had the procedure performed. The “strip” method, is an uncomfortable procedure which takes months to recover with significant downtime.
In this procedure, a large strip of skin and hair is removed from the patient’s scalp. This donor section is then cut into hundreds of individual pieces to harvest the hair follicles which are then inserted into areas of hair loss. The patient is then faced with significant linear scarring in the donor area. Due to the scars, wearing a short haircut is no longer an option for these patients. Additionally, patients can also experience significant numbness and prolonged pain in the donor site. The strip method also limits the number of procedures an individual can have. Typically, after two procedures, the scalp gets very tight which proposes a problem when attempting to harvest more strips for future procedures. Because the process of hair loss is progressive, as a person’s hair recedes, more grafts are needed. With the strip method, you can run out of skin on the back of the scalp. Unfortunately, these are facts that are seldom revealed to patients.
The NeoGraft Difference
The NeoGraft™ Hair Restoration system harvests individual hair follicle grafts from the back of the scalp with minimal trauma. NeoGraft™ takes the individual graft and then places it into the desired area of hair loss. The quality of the graft is amazingly consistent and not prone to human error. Instead of an unsightly donor scar, the donor area consists of tiny needle marks that heal completely within a couple days.
The future is now! Please review our procedure videos, and if you are considering having it done the “old” way, ask to see their procedure video. After you see the difference, you will not want it done any other way!
Frequently Asked Questions
NeoGraft™ is a new device which facilitates the harvesting of follicles during an Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant, dramatically improving the accuracy and speed over previously used manual extraction instruments.
“F.U.E.” or “Follicular-Unit Extraction” is an advanced, minimally-invasive hair transplant method which allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the donor area without a scalpel incision or the necessary stitches, and therefore leaves no linear scar.
It is well accepted that FUE transplants heal faster and more comfortably than linear incision harvest techniques using a scalpel and requiring stitches. With FUE, once healing is complete, the patient has the option of wearing a very short haircut without the worry of a tell-tale linear scar. Without the need for stitches, downtime is shorter with fewer activity restrictions immediately after the procedure.
The highly ergonomic mechanical NeoGraft™ device works as a natural extension of the physician’s hand, allowing for faster and more accurate harvesting of hair follicles. NeoGraft™ patients now reach their goal with less time in the procedure room or fewer FUE procedures altogether.
Patients who would like the option of wearing a very short haircut in the back or sides of their scalp, or those who want the least amount of activity restriction (e.g. athletes) after their hair transplant procedure, may be good candidates for FUE. The NeoGraft FUE System can also be used for ‘scar camouflage’ procedures for patients who have had prior linear harvests, as well as for body hair transplants.
The fee structure for FUE hair transplant procedures reflect the more detailed and intricate nature of those procedures compared to those performed with a strip linear harvest surgery.
Results are similar. FUE procedures, by default, yield grafts that contain mainly one, two, three, or four follicles called “follicular units. “Strip harvests, which are microscopically dissected by a team into grafts of one, two or three follicles, would also yield similar ‘follicular-unit’ grafts. Provided that in each case the grafts are implanted with care, artistry and precision into the recipient area, the final transplanted results with FUE would be similar, if not identical, to those of an accomplished surgeon performing the strip harvest. The difference is not in the area of hair growth, but how the donor area is harvested either by a strip of scalp or by small individual graft extractions.
Yes. Because FUE/NeoGraft™ is a minimally-invasive procedure, it is a viable option for both men and women looking to restore their own living and growing hair with transplantation.
No, not if your wear your hair long. If your donor hair is long enough, harvesting using the FUE/NeoGraft can be done by shaving small areas which can be covered by your other, existing hair. If you wear your hair short, it helps to shave it close for maximum yield. It looks more natural sooner as the transplanted grafts are short as well.
