female hair lossNow that winter is over, you can no longer hide your balding and thinning hair under a favorite knitted hat. Perhaps it is time to learn about your hair restoration options and the many benefits of NeoGraft®.

Hair Restoration Has Evolved

For almost 200 years, hair restoration has been a procedure for men who wanted to replenish hair that is lost due to aging and genetics. The most traditional techniques involve removing areas of the scalp and transplanting sections in areas of baldness. The donor tissue is typically taken from the back of the scalp where the hair is less susceptible to thinning and balding. Modern hair restoration treatments do not rely on such extensive tissue removal.

Follicular Unit Extraction

Follicular unit extraction, or FUE, is one of the greatest advancements in hair restoration techniques. Rather than removing a strip of scalp from the back of the head, FUE involves only the removal of skin grafts. The technique is recommended for men and women.

The NeoGraft® Difference

NeoGraft® has further advanced hair restoration by automating the hair graft harvesting. This results in greater precision in graft size and number of hairs, as well as less failure in the transplanted hairs. Patients who undergo NeoGraft® hair restoration achieve superior natural results because each hair graft is placed in a manner that mimics the normal hair growth pattern and direction.

Benefits of NeoGraft® Hair Restoration

Dr. Kolstad has chosen NeoGraft® for his hair restoration patients because of the technique:

  • Requires no stitches or staples
  • Produces little to no discomfort
  • Requires only local anesthesia
  • Recovery takes less than one week
  • Natural-looking hairline

After Your NeoGraft® Hair Restoration Procedure

The transplanted hairs will grow in naturally over the next year. Many patients prefer this so that the hair restoration is not as obvious. You may notice that some hairs fall out. This is normal, as your hair goes through a growth cycle that includes shedding and growth of new replacement hair.
