What is Hair Replacement?
Thinning hair and hair loss is a rather common sign of aging amongst men. Thick, healthy hair is a symbol of youth and vitality, so the loss of hair can have psychologically damaging effects as it is a constant visual reminder of one’s age, and can even make men look - and feel - older than they actually are.
Although there are a number of shampoos, creams and oils on the market that promise to stop or even reverse baldness, there are currently no topical treatments to correct the problem. In-office hair replacement procedures are currently the most effective treatments available to correct baldness.
But exactly what is hair replacement and how does it work? There are multiple methods of hair replacement and transplantation, including a special advancement known as NeoGrafting. This technique of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) uses a patient’s own hair to correct baldness. NeoGrafting is an in-office procedure performed by a skilled team of doctors and nurses who specialize in hair replacement.
In order to understand how NeoGrafting works, it is important to understand how baldness occurs. Though there can be several possible causes, the most common reason men lose their hair can be traced back to the hormone dihydrotestosterone, more commonly known as DHT. The production of DHT occurs in very specific patterns around the top, front, and crown of the head. In most circumstances, the band of hair found along the lower back of the head is not affected by DHT. Because these follicles are not affected by DHT, hair will continue to grow in this area over the course of a lifetime, making it an ideal donor location for the NeoGrafting procedure. Hairs are harvested directly from this area and transplanted into the thinning, balding areas of the head. By scoring the skin in the donor location, follicles can be extracted gently, individually and precisely.
The NeoGrafting process is an ideal procedure for a number of patients considering hair replacement, even those with a small donor area or those who have limited scalp elasticity.
There are several benefits associated with NeoGrafting. Because the process uses a scoring procedure rather than an incision, there are no bandages, no stitches and no linear scar. A final product with no scarring gives a cleaner, more natural looking result. The process also allows for a much faster healing time than traditional linear hair transplant sessions, meaning patients can have multiple sessions performed within weeks of each other rather than the usual 6 month wait period.
