NeoGraft® for Women

A Cutting-Edge Solution to Thinning Hair in Grand Rapids

Do you have thinning hair? It is becoming more difficult to try to style your hair to cover your scalp? Do you see your part growing wider just about every time you look in the mirror? You are not alone: About 40 percent of the people suffering from hereditary hair loss in the United States are women just like you. Many of these hair-loss sufferers plan on hiding their thinning hair with a hat for the rest of their lives, but the Bengtson Center has a better solution in NeoGraft®. Grand Rapids-area women looking to regain a full head of hair can enjoy beautiful, natural-looking results thanks to this cutting-edge technology. NeoGraft® is considered the gold standard in hair restoration strategies.

 

The specialty device extracts healthy, thriving follicles from areas on the scalp where pattern baldness is not a concern. The donor area maintains its density, while the follicles are implanted into places where the scalp is visible in order to create dense swaths of hair there as well. This process is known as "follicular unit extraction" (FUE), which delivers the desired results of previous techniques—without the drawback of a noticeable linear scar.

Although the NeoGraft® collection process is automated, each follicle is implanted one at a time with artistry and skill. The goal is to follow natural lines and angles to create a head of hair that looks just like it would if hair loss had never been a problem.

What Sets FUE Apart?

The fact that NeoGraft® automates the follicular unit extraction process gives it an advantage over other methods:

  • It is minimally invasive, taking only the follicles and a minute amount of surrounding tissue—not a long, linear strip as with follicular unit transplant (FUT)
  • There is no need for sedation—and even then, patients say discomfort is minor
  • A lack of incisions means less bleeding, fewer risks, and no linear scar
  • Post-treatment recovery is relatively quick

Women who tried the linear "strip" method of FUT can choose NeoGraft® for a "second chance!" The follicles collected via FUE can be used to cover the telltale linear scar.

Which Women Are Good Candidates for Hair Restoration in Grand Rapids?

Note that NeoGraft® is a solution for hereditary hair loss that follows a generally predictable pattern, and not for replacing hair lost due to stress, health conditions, medications, or other temporary causes. In these cases, hair typically grows back on its own after a matter of time once hormone levels return to normal.

 

For this reason, women who make good candidates for NeoGraft® are those with female-pattern baldness, technically known as androgenic alopecia. The Bengtson Center team will work with each woman seeking a hair-loss solution to determine what the cause is, as well as the ideal treatment.
