For those who struggle with hair loss, there is now an award-winning system for hair restoration, giving men and women a way to grow new hair by using transplants of their own hair. Thankfully, there are now practical and straightforward devices that make hair transplants easy and fast for the patient and the doctors who complete them.

Today’s hair grafting technology has revolutionized previous hair transplant methods such as the strip method or FUT. Doctors can quickly access a large number of transplanted grafts in every session because the grafts are obtained from the entire donor area and not a concentrated area as is the case with the strip method. . The results are permanent, and the recover process is much easier and shorter  than older methods of hair grafting.

The SmartGraft tool will remove the micro-grafts on the donor locations after your implant regions are numbed with anesthetic. The procedure may take more time depending on the number of grafts needed.
