NeoGraft Hair Restoration
Hair Loss Clinic in Melbourne
Now is the perfect time to take control of your hair loss and get your hair back! That’s because NeoGraft Hair Restoration at the Clevens Hair Institute is the most sophisticated technology available for restoring your hair permanently with the most natural-looking result. Best of all, unlike previous methods for treating hair loss, NeoGraft uses no scalpel, no sutures, and no incision and requires little or no downtime. So, you can get right back to your active lifestyle as quickly as possible!
If you have considered hair restoration, you have likely run into horror stories about the way hair restoration was once performed. The old “strip method approach” involved an incision on the back of a patient’s head to remove a strip of scalp and hair surgically. This incision was stapled or sutured back together, creating a permanent visible scar on the back of the patient’s head. Once the strip of scalp was surgically removed, the follicles from the donor site would be extracted in units of up to four follicles at a time and then transplanted to the areas where the patient desired a greater volume of hair. This strip method approach to hair restoration often prevented patients from styling their hair with a shorter haircut, because the linear scar from the donor site could easily be seen on the back of the head. Additionally, some patients reported a feeling of “numbness” or “skin tightness” in the area where the strip of skin was removed.
Fortunately, advances in medical technology allow us to perform a safer, less-invasive procedure for hair restoration that achieves natural-looking results with no linear scar. At Clevens Hair Institute, we use the NeoGraft Hair Restoration technique which utilizes the first FDA-approved automated FUE (Follicle Unit Extraction) technology.
The benefits of the NeoGraft hair restoration procedure include:
- Minimally invasive and extremely safe
- Requires no IV sedation during the treatment
- Produces superior natural-looking results
- Discreet and gentle with little to no discomfort
- No linear scar, staples, or scalpel incision
- Provides the flexibility for any hair style
- Much more affordable than other hair loss treatment methods
- Requires little to no downtime for recovery
How NeoGraft Works
With NeoGraft treatment, a donor site is selected on the back of the head where hair is fuller. No incision is required and the scalp remains intact rather than removing an entire “strip” to harvest the donor follicles. Next, individual hair follicles are gently extracted and preserved through a minimally invasive procedure. The NeoGraft device is a 1mm punch that surrounds each follicle individually and uses pneumatic pressure (suction) to remove each follicle one by one with precision, reducing the risk that grafts may become damaged during the procedure. At the Clevens Hair Institute, we go a step further and give patients the option to have grafts bathed in Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), a healing gel to further promote the survival of the follicles, ensuring the highest “take rate” possible.
Once the follicles are meticulously extracted using the NeoGraft device, the donor follicles are carefully implanted in the recipient area of the scalp until all have been transplanted. NeoGraft enables our team to implant each graft at exactly the right angle and direction to ensure the most natural-looking hairline possible based on your individual treatment plan. Within a week, the donor area will be healed and appear completely normal, without looking any thinner. The newly transplanted hair follicles will rest and then regrow perfectly natural hair in the transplanted areas in approximately 3-4 months. The result is a fuller head of hair that can be colored, cut, and styled any way you wish!
Am I a Candidate for NeoGraft Hair Restoration?
The best candidates for NeoGraft Hair Restoration at the Clevens Hair Institute are healthy men and women with a moderate amount of hair loss and ample hair volume in a potential donor site. The more hair density in the donor site, the more follicles can be extracted for a fuller result. NeoGraft is especially suitable for patients who lead an active lifestyle and prefer minimal downtime or who wish to wear their hair in shorter styles. NeoGraft can also be used to “camouflage” a scar pattern created from a previous hair transplant using the strip method approach. The treatment also can be used for body hair transplants.
