Most of us normally lose between 50 and 100 hairs each day without any noticeable hair loss. However, some people suffer from much more considerable hair loss which can cause them to experience concern over their appearance. This is more common than you think with around 50 million men and 30 million women suffering from some degree of significant hair loss. Fortunately, there is no need to live with the consequences of this condition. While there are a multitude of different treatments that claim to be able to restore lost hair, there is one that is proven to be successful in helping patients to naturally regrow missing hair. This solution is called Neograft.
Why am I losing my hair?
There are several types of hair loss as well as many reasons why someone loses their hair. Some hair loss is temporary, and your hair will grow back with time provided you have dealt with the underlying issue. However, other hair loss is permanent and will lead you to explore options like Neograft in order to restore your hair to its previous state.
Common causes of hair loss include:
Scalp conditions, such as ringworm and psoriasis
Alopecia, which is an autoimmune disorder that attacks the hair follicles
Aging, as when people get older, their rate of hair growth slows
Genetics, and if this is the case, you may be diagnosed with male or female-pattern baldness
Identifying the cause of your hair loss can be extremely beneficial as it could help you to avoid experiencing temporary hair loss in the future. If you are experiencing permanent hair loss, such as a result of alopecia or male-pattern baldness, you may want to consider Neograft.
What is Neograft?
Neograft is a minimally invasive and highly effective treatment that is designed to permanently replace missing hair. The technique that is used in Neograft stems from a process that is known as FUE or Follicular Unit Excision. In FUE treatment, individual hair follicles are removed from the lower back part of your head (which tends to be less affected by hair loss), and then transplanted individually into the target area.
It should be noted that Neograft is similar but not the same as strip harvesting, which involves taking entire strips of hair from the back of the head and placing them into the target area. The individual follicle approach of Neografting has been shown to be more effective, particularly since the technique uses ‘no-touch’ pneumatic technology. This minimizes the handling of follicles, making them less likely to be damaged and more likely to take to the scalp successfully.
Key benefits of Neograft
There are a number of reasons why Neograft is the preferred option for many patients looking for a permanent way to restore their hairline including:
Minimal discomfort. Patients state that during Neograft, there is little to no discomfort experienced.
No scarring. Unlike strip harvesting which inevitably causes scarring, the Neograft technique means that there are no major incisions on the skin of the scalp, meaning no scarring.
Faster recovery. Since the process of Neograft is minimally invasive compared to other hair transplant techniques, patients can enjoy a quicker recovery with minimal risk of complications.
More natural look. When you choose Neograft for your hair transplant, every follicle is placed individually, allowing your provider to create a completely natural looking hairline.
Wide suitability. Nearly all patients are found to be good candidates for Neograft.
