What is NeoGraft follicular unit extraction (FUE)?
NeoGraft is a new cutting-edge and minimally invasive treatment for hair restoration. The FUE process involves moving hair follicles individually into the target area where you want hair to grow.
Traditional hair transplantation methods required extracting a strip of the scalp to acquire follicles for the target area. Unfortunately, the process would leave a scar on the back of the head where the surgeon made the incision.
FUE extracts individual units of the hair follicle with a specialized suction tool that does not require incisions. Your practitioner transfers the units to different areas of the scalp, making your hair look fuller than when using traditional techniques. NeoGraft leaves no linear marks leading to a more aesthetically pleasing result.
What can the FUE procedure address?
FUE (follicular unit extraction) is an effective treatment for various types of hair loss for both men and women. It can treat male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia, provided the hair loss is not rapidly progressing.
The FUE procedure is most effective at the earliest stages of male pattern baldness. The best time to get treatment is between 30 and 35. However, it can still be effective at later stages, as long as the hair loss has not progressed to complete baldness.
FUE transplantation can also benefit younger patients with androgenetic alopecia. The process can restore hair for patients in their mid-20s to 30s to boost their affected self-esteem.
FUE can also address traction alopecia, a condition common in women. It occurs when undue pressure is exerted by the hair on the scalp when wearing certain hairstyles.
The constant tagging and pulling can lead to follicle injury or inflammation. FUE treatment can restore hair around the face and forehead. The hair regrowth shapes the hairline to enhance facial aesthetics.
Another advantage of FUE is its precision, allowing for facial hair transplants. You can restore the hair density around your eyebrows, beards, and eyelashes. The process does not result in conspicuous scarring. That makes FUE one of the best options for facial hair restoration.
Are you an ideal candidate?
While FUE treatment is generally safe, it could lead to side effects for some patients. Your provider will conduct medical assessments and physical exams before commencing treatment.
You may not be an ideal candidate if your hair loss is due to an autoimmune condition. The baldness must be stable and not rapidly progressing.
Psychological stress and medication are other factors that could disqualify you from treatment. Such issues tend to exacerbate hair loss, making the procedure ineffective.
Nonetheless, you will discuss the procedure’s expectations with your provider. The treatment can be tailored to address your medical needs and preferences.
