Before automated FUE became available, the only other technique for hair restoration besides the strip method was traditional FUE. The traditional FUE method was manual instead of automated, which results in a much longer procedure than even the strip method.
But now, with the revolutionary technology of NeoGraft®, the automated FUE technique, the disadvantages of the manual FUE method have been eliminated. California Hair MD can perform NeoGraft® in the same span of time as the strip method. Moreover, beyond shortening the operation time, NeoGraft® has made hair restoration in California “No Touch.” Traditionally, the hair follicles would be handled with forceps in order to replant them into the desired treatment areas, but in NeoGraft® the follicles are removed using pneumatic pressure or suction. Once the desired number of follicles are removed, donor hair grafts are then implanted in a way much like FUE but using reverse pneumatic pressure. This “No Touch” technique lowers hair follicle damage rate because they remain moist and robust even while extracted since the NeoGraft® “touch free” system uses a collection canister to house hair follicles, which separates and mists them regularly during extraction and while waiting to be implanted, ensuring that more survive the process.
The minimally invasive hair transplant technologies implemented in California Hair MD have many benefits both during and after the procedure. All in all they produce more volume and natural-looking results. During the operation, automated FUE causes less bleeding and pain without requiring IV sedation. Sutures are no longer needed due to FUE’s individual follicle planting method, resulting in no linear scar and more precise follicle placement. Moreover, NeoGraft® requires less recovery time and has little chance of nerve or blood vessel damage. The automated FUE method is virtually painless and lets patients resume their daily activities faster than ever!
NeoGraft®’s innovative and minimally invasive hair transplant technology is superior to the traditional “strip method” of hair restoration in California. In short, it is the next level as it provides patients with:
Minimized amount of damage to hair follicles
More successfully transplanted follicles and more hair volume
More precise graft placement
Less nerve and blood vessel damage
Though these older hair restoration methods were viable options for some patients, advances in technology have led to minimally invasive hair restoration treatments that can achieve substantial results with less downtime and recovery. Artas i-X® Hair Transplant is a robotic hair restoration treatment that selects only the healthiest hair follicles for transplantation and removes those individual follicles without damaging surrounding hairs. Patients undergoing Artas i-X® Hair Transplant can avoid the lengthy incisions, stitches, and linear scarring associated with past hair restoration techniques.
