With NeoGraft hair restoration, our patients can enjoy a minimally invasive hair transplantation procedure with no stitches and no long, linear scar. Return to work and life sooner with a natural-looking and full hairline.

How Does NeoGraft Hair Restoration Work?

NeoGraft automates FUE hair transplantation, making the process faster, easier, and more accurate than ever before. It was actually invented by a French plastic surgeon!

How does NeoGraft work? A specialized device creates small incisions around individual hair follicles and uses suction to gently remove these follicles from the scalp. 

After the hair follicles are extracted, the NeoGraft device stores them until transfer. The NeoGraft system is “no touch”. Each extracted hair follicle is stored in optimal conditions without potential damage from forceps or contamination. 

NeoGraft uses reverse pneumatic pressure to implant each extracted follicle at the ideal depth and positioning. Optimal storage and transfer ensure that more hair follicles survive the transfer process, resulting in a fuller head of hair and better aesthetic results.

NeoGraft vs. FUE vs. FUT

Before NeoGraft, the strip method (also called FUT) was one of the most popular methods for hair transplantation. This method involved removing a strip of hair-bearing skin from the back of the scalp and dividing this strip into individual hair grafts. This method of hair transplantation was very invasive and left patients with a long scar across the back of the scalp. 

The alternative to FUT was an intensive procedure called FUE where small individual hair grafts were manually removed from the scalp. Traditional FUE is a slow and delicate process where individual hair follicles are painstakingly removed one by one. The process is slow, labor-intensive, and very expensive. 

NeoGraft offers many benefits over manual FUE. NeoGraft is an automated type of FUE that uses a specialized device to extract and implant hairs. With NeoGraft, many of the downsides to FUE are eliminated. 

Finally, you can enjoy the benefits of FUE in a faster, more affordable treatment option. NeoGraft is FUE but better.

FAQS: NeoGraft Hair Restoration in Santa Monica, San Diego, and Newport Beach

The cost of your treatment will depend on the number of grafts needed. To ensure you receive accurate cost and pricing information, we will provide your personalized quote during your consultation. NeoGraft’s advanced technology and automated processes make this method for FUE hair transplantation more affordable and accessible than manual FUE hair transplantation. 

NeoGraft is used on both men and women with excellent results. Hair loss in women is different than hair loss in men. It is important to choose a provider that has experience using NeoGraft and other hair restoration techniques in female patients. Our providers work with women regularly and know to create a feminine hairline and how to address the primary causes of hair loss in women effectively. 

NeoGraft is minimally invasive and allows patients to return to work and other activities quickly. Many of our hair transplantation patients are back at work within a few days of their procedure. 

Unlike some hair transplantation methods, NeoGraft does not require shaving the head. The hair in the donor area will need to be cut short before your procedure, but other areas of hair can remain uncut. After NeoGraft, your hair will grow normally and can be worn long or short in any hairstyle of your choosing. 

Most of our patients are delighted by their NeoGraft results. Ask our team to see NeoGraft before and after photos of patients with a similar hair loss pattern. Seeing photos of real patients can give you a better idea of the type of results possible with FUE hair restoration.
