Your Guide to NeoGraft® FUE – Why You Might Need It

Hair loss is a condition that progressively affects 30 to 50 percent of the population, the problem only worsening as time passes. There are many causes for this condition, including stress, poor diet, and aging, but the most common reason is androgenic alopecia. When non-invasive hair treatments fail, you can choose a hair transplant. 

A popular way to restore your hair is using the NeoGraft® FUE procedure. Bringing all the benefits of transplants without the long recovery, this treatment can help restore your hair to its former glory. Let’s find out more about it.

What Is NeoGraft® FUE?

Before diving into what NeoGraft® FUE is, you first need to learn about the most common methods for hair transplants: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation. FUE takes out individual follicles from an area of your scalp, while FUT retrieves an entire strip of skin, harvesting the follicle. Both procedures take hair from sections with a lot of follicles, transferring it where the hair is lacking.

The extraction method or FUE can be done in various ways, including standard surgery. However, this could be prone to human error and a longer recovery. NeoGraft® FUE was created for this exact reason, using a specialized system to extract the follicles. This eliminated some of the issues often associated with surgery.

One thing to be noted is that NeoGraft® FUE is not fully robotic. Instead, it uses a pneumatic tool to apply pressure when harvesting the graft. Once it has been taken out, it is transplanted in the area where you have a bald spot. Careful administration of the tool is necessary, so this treatment should only be performed by a specialized surgeon. 

Benefits of NeoGraft® FUE

While every hair transplant method has the potential to improve your hair aesthetic, several things could make NeoGraft® FUE the superior choice for hair restoration. This can include the following: 

  • Less Scarring 

Most methods of surgical hair transplant hold the risk of scarring, whether you opt for FUE or FUT. While regular FUE has a lower scarring rate, there is still a chance it could happen since it is manual and surgical. Because NeoGraft® FUE is semi-automatic, the strands are removed more precisely, reducing the chances of scarring. 

  • Shorter Recovery

Hair transplantation methods like FUT come with longer recovery times, mainly because an entire strip of skin is removed from your scalp. Scarring aside, this could also make it uncomfortable for you to wear hats for a long time. NeoGraft® FUE is minimally invasive, with incisions usually as big as a needle prick. This can lead to a shorter recovery time. 

  • Reduced Follicle Damage

Traditional hair transplants, while effective, can lead to damage to the follicle during transplantation. Since these follicles are very small, it’s easy to grab them incorrectly and accidentally damage them. Once the follicle is damaged, it will no longer be able to grow new hairs. With the NeoGraft® FUE hair restoration system, follicle retrieval is more precise, reducing the chances of damage and increasing their survival rate.

  • Quicker Procedure

When performed carefully, traditional FUE can take days for all the follicles to be harvested from your scalp and prepared for transplantation. This can be inconvenient if you have a large amount of scalp to cover up with hair. As NeoGraft® FUE uses a specialized tool to take out the follicle faster, the entire transplant typically takes about four to 10 hours.
