Everything You Need to Know About NeoGraft Hair Restoration

Everything You Need to Know About NeoGraft Hair Restoration

Hair thinning and loss can impact more than just a person's appearance. It can affect their self-esteem and even their social life. Fortunately, an easy nonsurgical hair restoration option is available in the form of NeoGraft®.

At Plateroti Dermatology in Templeton, California, Dr. Carmelo Plateroti and our top-notch team use their more than 30 years of combined experience to treat everything from wrinkles and hair loss to acne and skin cancer. We provide individualized, cutting-edge treatments using a combination of Western medicine and holistic care to resolve medical issues and leave patients looking and feeling their best.

Hair loss

People normally lose anywhere from 50 to 100 hairs each day while new hairs simultaneously come in to replace them. However, when new hair doesn't grow in, the result is hair thinning and hair loss. About 50 million men and 30 million women suffer from this affliction.

A number of reasons contribute to this condition. The most common is genetics, which cause androgenic alopecia or male- and female-pattern baldness. Hormonal changes, medical conditions, medications, and supplements can also contribute to hair loss as can hairstyles and treatments, and even physically or emotionally stressful events.

NeoGraft

The good news is that NeoGraft can help. Unlike some treatments that can leave visible scars, this procedure involves no stitches or staples. It is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is the least invasive type of hair restoration available.

How it works

The procedure uses an advanced technique known as the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method. This cutting-edge treatment involves taking out individual hair follicles in groups of one to four pairings and carefully placing them on parts of the scalp that have experienced hair loss. 

The doctor uses a specialized "no-touch" technology to precisely remove the hairs and then implant them again exactly where they need to be. This results in an increase in hair that looks fuller and natural. The results can also be personalized with individuals able to choose hair that is short or long and determine their choice of hair style.

The procedure itself

The procedure itself is performed with only a local anesthetic, so there are no intravenous or intramuscular sedation issues. Patients are awake and experience little to no discomfort. Thanks to the lack of incisions and minimal blood loss, there are fewer restrictions following treatment than for individuals who undergo a more invasive surgery. In many cases, people can return to work and their normal activities the next day.
