Although the majority of men and nearly half of women experience hair loss with age, most hair restoration treatments offer lackluster, inconsistent results.
At Chicago Aesthetic Surgery Institute (CASI), we understand how hair loss can affect your life. That’s why we offer our patients NeoGraft hair restoration, one of the newest and most advanced hair transplant techniques available.
Patients in the greater Chicago area, including Rosemont, IL, and Hoffman Estates, IL, who want to regain thick, full hair have a new option with NeoGraft hair restoration.
What Causes Hair Loss?
There are several medical reasons you can lose your hair. However, most hair loss in men and women is due to androgenetic alopecia, also known as pattern baldness.
While both men and women can experience androgenetic alopecia, the condition presents itself differently. Men with pattern baldness typically experience a receding hairline, with the hair loss forming a signature “M” shape at the top of the head. Male androgenetic alopecia typically progresses to partial or complete baldness.
Women experience androgenetic alopecia differently, as their hair tends to thin throughout their heads without any recession and rarely leads to complete baldness.
Androgenetic alopecia may develop due to genetic and environmental factors. Researchers link the condition to hormones called androgens, which regulate hair growth and sex drive. Since both men and women have androgens, many hair restoration methods can treat men or women.
What Is NeoGraft Hair Restoration?
Hair transplant procedures surgically remove hair follicles from one area of the scalp and transplant them into balding areas. Most hair transplant procedures use one of two methods: follicular unit transplantation (FUT) or follicular unit excision (FUE).
FUT is sometimes known as “strip harvesting,” as the process involves removing large strips of hair from an area where it grows more thickly and implanting them in areas where hair is thinning.
In contrast, FUE methods involve harvesting one to three hairs at a time and moving them to areas of hair loss. NeoGraft hair restoration uses a version of FUE. It is considered more effective than other FUE hair restoration techniques because the process is semiautomated.
What Makes NeoGraft Hair Restoration Different?
Previously, human error limited FUE hair restoration methods and offered inconsistent results. NeoGraft removes those concerns while capitalizing on the FUE method’s benefits.
The NeoGraft device removes hair follicles using a motorized punch that slowly and gently rotates twice around each graft, creating cylindrical shapes. Then, pneumatic suction slides the follicles out smoothly and uniformly, without forceps or pulling pressure that can damage them.
As a result, the Neograft technique offers benefits beyond any other hair restoration procedure.
What Are the Benefits of NeoGraft Hair Restoration?
Traditional FUT and FUE hair restoration treatments required manual incisions to implant hair in balding areas. One of the primary benefits of the NeoGraft device is its ability to extract hair with a wand that provides suction. Then, the device implants the follicles with a tool that creates a tiny incision and embeds the hair simultaneously.
However, the benefits of hair restoration for women or men with NeoGraft extend beyond automation.
NeoGraft hair restoration is the least invasive procedure available to transplant hair. Unlike traditional hair restoration surgeries, NeoGraft only requires a local anesthetic and requires no sutures or surgical staples.
In addition, the NeoGraft technique means that the inconveniences and discomfort associated with traditional hair transplants are no longer a concern.
FDA-Approved Hair Restoration for Men and Women
NeoGraft is the first hair restoration device in its class to receive FDA approval. The device was initially developed in Germany, and European patients have benefitted from the technique for years. NeoGraft continually upgrades its pneumatic devices to ensure patients receive the most effective technology available to restore their hair.
The less invasive technique employed by NeoGraft puts less trauma on the hair follicles during extraction, so fewer follicles experience damage. As a result, the transplanted hair has a better survival rate, and patients enjoy a more effective procedure that results in improved hair coverage and density.
Hair restoration with NeoGraft is less uncomfortable, and patients recover faster with this gentler approach. The implants heal within about a week, and most people resume their normal activities within two weeks.
More Natural Results
Since NeoGraft implants hair follicles in groups of one to three, the results look more natural. The device’s precision allows us to create a uniformly fuller look over the entire head.
Covers Blemishes and Scars
Patients who previously underwent hair restoration procedures using traditional FUT techniques may have lingering scars from their operations. NeoGraft implantation can restore hair to cover scars and other blemishes.
Am I an Ideal Candidate for NeoGraft Hair Restoration?
NeoGraft offers hair restoration for women and men who are in good health and don’t have certain chronic conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes or blood clotting disorders. The FDA approved the procedure for those over 25 years of age.
Ideal candidates will have an area of thick hair to harvest and are experiencing natural hair loss that is not due to medication or stress-induced.
