Who is a Good Candidate for NeoGraft® Hair Restoration?Posted On: January 29, 2020
Is thinning hair getting you down? Long locks—or at least enough hairs to cover your scalp—are closely related to personal satisfaction and confidence for many people. While millions of Americans experience the problem of thinning hair each year, losing your hair can take its toll on your self-esteem and even lead to depression. Some of the most common causes of hair loss are genetics, thyroid issues, male/female pattern hair loss, among other health conditions.
Unfortunately, any given hair product, supplement, or medications won’t necessarily solve your specific issue. That’s because the best treatment for your hair loss depends on its underlying cause. The Bengtson Center team explains that the gold-standard NeoGraft® hair restoration at the Michigan-based practice is better suited for some patients than others.
NeoGraft® uses an advanced FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) approach that involves harvesting individual follicles from a patient’s own scalp. These follicles are taken from areas where hairs are more resistant to falling out. These healthy hairs can then be implanted where they are needed to provide better coverage!
The goal is to address bare areas for a full look, as well as to make your hairline appear as natural as possible. Unlike some other surgical hair transplant methods, one of the major benefits of NeoGraft® is that it doesn’t leave any linear scars—which was a drawback to earlier transplant methods using older technology. In fact, the collection portion of the treatment is automated, ensuring a higher level of accuracy while reducing the length of time you spend in the office and recovering at home. Since it requires little recovery time, this is a great option for patients who want to return to very active lifestyles as soon as possible. It’s also useful for hiding scars that have developed due to previous hair transplant efforts.
Men and women with either long or short hairstyles can benefit from this procedure. Any patient should be in a generally good state of overall health, have mild to moderate hair loss, and maintain realistic expectations. Candidates should be adults with a fully grown-in hair pattern—but not be fully (or nearly) bald. Each person is different, and there is no “perfect” age to get a hair transplant. That said, it’s important to start treatments early when you have most of your hair, which may be during your 30s. Better hair health, density, and fullness usually equates to more ideal results. You’ll need to have enough donor hair on the back of your head for a transplant.
