Why NeoGraft?

At Michigan Hair Restoration, our goal is to use technology to help our patients achieve the results they want with the least amount of pain and discomfort. NeoGraft, approved by the FDA for use in the United States in 2008, has quickly become the Gold Standard for hair transplant procedures.

The traditional strip method of hair transplantation harvests the grafts from the donor area in the back of the head by removing a section of the scalp. This creates a wound which requires either stitches or staples to close and results in a permanent, visible scar. The strip of scalp that is removed is separated by technicians into individual grafts and then manually inserted into tiny slits in the scalp within the bald or thinning area. With the strip method of hair transplantation, there is a longer recovery time due to wound healing and a higher risk of nerve damage and infection.

The NeoGraft device uses light suction to gently lift the hair follicles out of the scalp in the donor area. The device stores the follicles in a canister and they are kept moist until implantation to ensure their survival. The NeoGraft implant hand piece is used to place the grafts into the bald or thinning areas with reverse air pressure. This ensures that each graft is placed at an exact depth which results in a fuller, more natural looking hairline. There are no scalpels, sutures, or staples. Dr. Berkowitz of Michigan Hair Restoration is such a strong believer in the superiority of the NeoGraft method of hair transplantation that he has had the procedure done himself.
