What are the benefits of NeoGraft hair restoration?

The primary goal of NeoGraft hair restoration is to give patients a fuller head of hair that re-establishes a long-term hair growth pattern. Women who have thinning hair or bald spots but have enough donor follicles can benefit from this technique. Men who have male-pattern baldness or a receding hairline can also see improvements with follicular unit extraction or FUE. This hair restoration method offers:

  • Shorter treatment sessions and minimal discomfort, compared to other options
  • Less downtime
  • No incisions or visible scars, and more natural-looking hair growth
  • More precise and efficient hair restoration technology
  • A long-term solution

What are the NeoGraft results?

Dr. Kelishadi uses the NeoGraft automated hair restoration system as a less invasive but more efficient hair loss approach. The FUE method takes individual hair follicles (usually about 1 – 4 hairs) from a donor location and precisely places them in the target area with air compression or pneumatic controls. This is a profoundly different and more efficient way to combat hair loss than other hair restoration techniques in the past. A patient's donor area usually will be back to normal in about ten days. Target areas will be swollen and red with small scabs that will hardly be noticeable within 1 – 2 weeks. During the recovery period, the newly transplanted hair follicles will be "at rest" for several months. It is normal for some hair to fall out, so don't panic. The healthy hair follicles under the skin will start reappearing as new growth in the next several weeks. In about 3 – 4 months, NeoGraft patients will see progressive hair growth being established with full results in about 8 – 9 months.
