What is hair transplantation?
Hair transplantation is the surgical restoration of hair by taking hair from a donor site and inserting it into a recipient site. Initially developed in the 1950s, hair transplantation has evolved into today’s exciting and lasting methods of restoring hair. Today in the 21st century, we can proudly say we have achieved the “gold standard” of hair restoration.
What is involved in hair transplantation?
Hair transplantation takes only one day and is performed on an outpatient basis. The back of your scalp is more resistant to balding, making it the perfect location for donor scalp tissue and hair. The donated tissue is then implanted into the balding area. The transplanted hairs then begin to grow and fill in the bald areas.
NeoGraft™ hair transplant surgery
Hair loss does not discriminate against men and women. A varying combination of factors contributes to hair loss including genetics, underlying health conditions, and stress. Getting your natural look back is much easier now thanks to NeoGraft™.
NeoGraft™ is the most advanced minimally invasive hair transplantation system available. No more linear scars, no more obvious signs of a transplant. Hairs can be gently harvested from the back of the scalp and effectively transplanted into areas of balding or thinning. With a 93% transplant survival rate, NeoGraft™ provides the best option for hair transplantation today.
The first FDA-approved minimally invasive solution, the NeoGraft™ method combines FUE, the most effective hair transplantation technique, with a hair transplant device that speeds up the treatment time, reducing the cost to the patient. We are proud to now offer NeoGraft hair restoration at our NYC and NJ offices.
Why should I choose Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists for my NeoGraft treatment?
Dr. David Goldberg, Medical Director of Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists, has pioneered his own method of comprehensive hair transplantation with NeoGraft™ in NJ, utilizing other devices to further ensure the success of your transplant. What sets Dr. Goldberg’s treatment plan apart is the utilization of special light emitting diodes, or LED light treatments, with a combination of growth factors post treatment.
These special LED treatments help to stimulate the hair follicle and reduce inflammation post treatment. A special set of these treatments is included with your transplantation for use after your recovery period. This helps to ensure that you are getting the best results possible.
NeoGraft enhanced with your own growth factors
The use of growth factors to help stimulate hair growth is an additional add-on service utilizing the Aquagold® fine touch™ microneedle delivery system. A vial of your own blood is spun down to separate the platelets from the plasma, which is rich in your own growth factors. These growth factors are put into a special microneedle delivery system to gently penetrate the scalp, delivering a concentrated deposit of your body’s own natural growth factors to stimulate your natural hair growth. This is a popular and effective add-on service to the NeoGraft™ procedure.
What is involved after the procedure?
After NeoGraft hair restoration, your head is cleaned and bandaged. You will need to take oral antibiotics to help protect your system from infection. Most patients have minimal discomfort that can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.
When will I see the final result?
Soon after your hair transplantation, you may notice that the transplanted hair is falling out. This is a normal part of the healing process. After six to nine months, new hairs begin to merge. During this time, Dr. Goldberg schedules follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.
Who is the ideal patient?
The majority of patients are men with male pattern baldness in their late 20s to 50s; however, there are many exceptions. Hair transplantation can be performed for female patients as well. Ultimately, your candidacy will be determined after a thorough consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists.
What is the cost of NeoGraft™ hair restoration?
Every patient has a different volume and pattern of hair loss. For this reason, the cost for treatment is adjudicated after your private consultation in one of our NYC or NJ offices. At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists, we accept CareCredit® and Alphaeon™ Credit to help you rapidly receive the treatment you desire.
