Thinning hair, a receding hairline and bald spots are embarrassing and frustrating for men and women of any age. Hair loss can be due genetics, illness or other factors. Fortunately, the latest hair restoration technology can restore that full head of hair so fondly remembered. The innovative Neograft hair restoration system provides permanent, natural looking results without the drawbacks of invasive, traditional surgery. This breakthrough approach has been successful on thousands of happy patients across the world. Recently introduced into this country, Neograft, the first FDA-approved, minimally invasive hair transplantation system, has been used in Europe and Asia for more than a decade.

“Neograft changed my life. For years, I was self-conscious about my hair loss. Not being someone who would look good bald, which was the direction I was headed, I was excited to learn about this new technology that would restore my hair to the fullness I remember from when I was in college,” said Mark Zinno, radio personality on CBS Sports Radio the FAN. “The procedure was so easy with no down time.”

Innovative Technology with Neograft
Now considered the gold standard in hair restoration, Neograft is a safe, minimally invasive approach that revives your hair, restores a thinning hairline, and provides maximum coverage. Instead of a complicated surgery, surgeons use the specialized, automated Neograft machine to relocate hair follicles in a gentle, consistent fashion. With artistic ability and surgical skill, surgeons place each transplanted hair follicle onto a thinning or balding area to duplicate precisely how your hair naturally grows on your scalp.

“Because the Neograft procedure is minimally invasive, requiring no stitches or sutures, it has little to no discomfort and requires only local anesthetic, in comparison to the older technique,” said Dr. Michael Cohen, board certified plastic surgeon at Cosmetic Surgery Center of Maryland. “We’re excited to offer our patients this amazing hair restoration solution that provides such great results.”

Older Techniques
Traditional hair restoration techniques require a painful, long incision to remove a portion of scalp at the donor site. Patients are left with a large, unsightly scar that is visible with shorter hair lengths. With this older technique, transplanted hair often has an altered texture or unnatural corn row appearance, and patients have significant discomfort and a lengthy recovery time.

Eliminating the unsightly donor scar, the donor area has only tiny marks that heal completely within days. By design, advanced Neograft technology addresses larger areas of hair loss, for fast, more efficient results with less time in the procedure room or fewer treatments all together.
