Restore Your Hair Naturally September 29, 2016 coleaesthetics Hair restoration has not traditionally been an easy process. Medications can have side effects and past hair transplant techniques were both painful and unnatural. Now, there is a way to restore your hair naturally, without the telltale signs of a transplant procedure. NeoGraft, which is now available at Cole Aesthetic Center, is an innovative method of hair transplantation that uses your own follicles to fill in thinning areas and produce a fuller, more youthful head of hair. The Truth about Hair Loss Hair loss is a common problem that affects around 50 million men and 30 million women in the U.S. Despite its prevalence, hair loss can be seriously distressing for those suffering from the condition. There are many reasons why hair loss might occur, from genetics and age to some types of medications and underlying medical conditions. No matter what the reason for your hair loss, you may find NeoGraft is the solution you have been looking for. The Lowdown on NeoGraft NeoGraft is an innovative method of hair transplantation that works differently than hair restoration methods of the past. Instead of transplanting a linear strip to the balding area, this procedure removes small amounts of follicles at a time, a technique known as follicular unit extraction or FUE. When just three or four follicles are removed and transplanted at a time, incisions become obsolete and the process does not leave any telltale scarring behind. NeoGraft Benefits There are a number of benefits NeoGraft offers over traditional methods of hair restoration: The minimally-invasive procedure does not involve any incisions, sutures or staples Because it is minimally invasive, there is little discomfort and downtime involved Results produce a natural-looking hairline that allows hair to be worn short or long Results are long-lasting as hair in transplant area begins to grow naturally over time The procedure is relatively affordable and financing options are available With numerous benefits and less risk than traditional hair transplantation procedures, it is no wonder more physicians and patients are turning to NeoGraft for their hair restoration needs. Minimally-Invasive Procedure NeoGraft does not involve the lengthy incisions typically used with linear stripping transplantation techniques. Instead, a small puncture is used to remove the handful of hair follicles for transplantation. This puncture does not require any sutures and will leave no visible scarring afterward. Because the procedure is less invasive than traditional hair transplantation, it may be performed under local anesthesia rather than general. This means a shorter recovery period for most patients, as well as less discomfort during and after the procedure. In fact, many patients are able to return to their regular activities within a few short days after their procedure. Long-Lasting Results NeoGraft offers long-lasting, even permanent hair restoration. Over time, the implanted follicles will begin to grow their own hair in their new location. This hair is completely natural and will look just like the other hair on your head. You will even need to schedule regular haircuts once the follicles “take” and the hair begins to grow once again! Successful hair restoration begins with selecting a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon to perform your procedure.
