NeoGraftTM Automated Hair Transplantation—Results of the Latest Research

Due to its ease and effectiveness, Look Natural Hair Transplants has chosen to offer the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method utilizing the NeoGraft Automated Hair Transplantation device, a much more desirable option because of the vast benefits the less invasive technique offers.

Most hairs in the scalp are in groups of 2 or 3. About 15% emerge as single hairs and 15% in groups of 4-5 hairs. These hair groupings are called Follicular Groups or Follicular Units (FU).

The FUE method of hair transplantation removes individual hair follicles from the scalp in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1-4 hairs, which are then placed in the areas of the scalp where balding has occurred.

After a decade of research and development, NeoGraft is the first patented surgical hair transplantation device that advances and refines the procedure of hair transplantation in the 21st century. To date, over 8,000 restoration procedures have been done with NeoGraft—generating excellent, natural looking results.

FUE vs. Strip—The new (and newest) method vs. the old method

At Look Natural Hair Transplants, we offer the newest method of hair transplantation.

There are several methods used in hair restoration:

  • the “Strip” method or FUT (follicular unit transplantation)
  • the FUE (follicular unit extraction) method, a minimally invasive method of hair transplantation
  • the automated FUE method, the newest most advanced method of hair transplantation available today.

Neograft Minimally Invasive Automated FUE

The newest and most advanced method of hair transplantation is called the NeoGraft Automated FUE and Implantation System. The NeoGraft device uses a motorized punch that gently rotates around each individual graft in perfectly cylindrical shapes. Rotation of the punch can be precisely adjusted to accommodate for different skin types. Using controlled pneumatic pressure (suction) to slide the follicles out smoothly and uniformly, there is no pulling and twisting as with forceps, thus, reducing the risk of follicular damage. The strength of the suction can be adjusted to accommodate for different skin types and the various sizes of punches. The automated system does away with the difficulties and disadvantages of the manual FUE. It radically decreases both time and cost, while improving follicle extraction and condition of the follicles, while enhancing precision of implant.

With NeoGraft, most patients can be candidates for an FUE hair transplant. In addition, the NeoGraft Automated FUE is also a useful procedure to fix visible linear scars from previous “strip” surgeries. FUE can be used to “fill in” or camouflage those old scars by transplanting new follicles into the area.

Manual Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

From a surgical standpoint, an FUE hair transplant is a very safe, minimally invasive, and relatively minor procedure. With the FUE method, the follicles are removed directly from the donor area using a manual 1 mm punch (punch sizes vary) and forceps.

Strip Surgical Linear Scalpel Incision

With the “strip” method, a surgically invasive procedure, the hair at the back of scalp is surgically excised. The wound created by the incision is then stitched up or stapled together. Next, the excised portion of the scalp is divided into separate grafts and units of one to four hairs. While the technicians are separating the grafts, the physician creates the hairline and recipient sites using a needle or a specific blade. Once the recipient sites have been created, the grafts are then placed into the sites using forceps.
