Millions of men and women struggle with hair loss but this system is capable of safely harvesting hair follicles with great speed and accuracy. Along with helping patients achieve natural-looking results, NeoGraft® doesn’t result in any visible scarring and recovery is faster too. This minimally invasive procedure causes little to no discomfort and produces excellent results for those struggling with hair loss or thinning hair.
The NeoGraft system is a game-changing technology that uses the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method utilizing the NeoGraft Automated Hair Transplantation system, a much more desirable option because of the vast benefits this less invasive technique offers.
During your hair transplant session with Dr Anh, the NeoGraft® machine will be used to extract hair follicles from the donor area, which is located at the back or side of the head. Individual grafts are then extracted.
Grafts are then implanted in the balding area individually, at the right angle, as this produces the best results. This particular approach does take more time but the results are almost always better.
New, healthy hair will start to grow without any signs that it’s been transplanted. Patients will see their new hairline within a week, and can expect to enjoy a fuller head of hair after about 3 to 4 months.
Our wonderful team is standing by ready to answer any questions you have.

FUE means the donor hair is removed one group of follicles at a time with no cutting no stitches and no line of scarring. There is commonly very little if not no pain afterwards. FUE leaves only tiny white dots that are hard to see in the donor area so your hair can be cut short down to No. 1 or 2 with no visible scars.
FUT, the traditional way of harvesting follicles, involves removing a horizontal strip of skin, about 1 cm wide from the back and suturing it closed.
FUT can leave a horizontal white line or scar that usually varies from 1mm to 3mm in width.
FUE is less invasive than the FUT method. FUE for many patients is preferred over FUT as it doesn’t leave any scarring and can result in less pain after the treatment. They also prefer FUE as the treatment time can be reduced (FUT procedures can last the entire day and this can deter some patients).
The NeoGraft system is suited to all hair types, including coarse and curly hair. Even if you don’t have a sufficient amount of hair at the back of your head, you can still qualify for this procedure. Patients should also be in good health and have any serious medical conditions to be considered for this treatment.
During the procedure, there will be little to no discomfort and since no stitches or staples will be required, patients are free to return to work the very next day if need be. However, spending an extra day or two is usually recommended.
It should be noted that even though NeoGraft can fill in balding or thinning areas on the scalp, it won’t address the underlying reason for the hair loss. Hormones, excess stress, age and genetics can all play a role in hair loss. It’s highly recommended that you determine the underlying cause of hair loss before you pursue a hair loss treatment.
If you do want to get a haircut, it’s best to wait until at least two weeks after your transplant procedure. Dr Anh will also help you choose products that will nourish and strengthen your transplanted hair.
If you find that you need a second NeoGraft session, you will need to wait at least 6 – 8 months before you can schedule another treatment.
