Frequently Asked Questions
Answers about hair removal Treatment
Am I a good candidate for this treatment? / Will this treatment work for me?
NeoGraft® hair restoration procedures are designed to deliver excellent results for both men and women. While most people can get the treatment, there are some factors that come into play to determine if you’re an ideal candidate. Taken together, these include the number of grafts necessary to produce the desired results, the density and quality of the donor hair, hair texture, and potential for future hair loss. Your treatment provider will be able to help to determine if you are a suitable candidate for this hair restoration procedure.
Is NeoGraft® suitable for both men and women?
Yes. Because the NeoGraft® hair restoration procedure is minimally invasive, it is a viable option for both men and women looking to restore their own living and growing hair with transplantation.
How is NeoGraft® different from other hair transplants?
Traditional hair restoration procedures usually employ a technique known as the strip method, which involves surgically removing a strip from the patient’s scalp (the back of the head) to be used as the donor site. This can leave a linear scar. NeoGraft®, on the other hand, uses a minimally invasive method that is a variation of the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique, which uses an automated handheld device to harvest individual hair follicles from areas that consist of terminal hair, which are naturally resistant to hair loss. It then implants those grafts at the site of hair loss, where, over time, they will regrow as healthy, fully functioning hair. As a result, NeoGraft® does not leave a linear scar, is more comfortable, and requires much less recovery time.
What is an FUE hair transplant?
FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction. It is an advanced, minimally invasive hair transplant method that allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the back of the head (donor area) without a scalpel or stitches, and therefore leaves no linear scar.
Will a doctor perform my treatment?
The physician will be highly involved in making all of the necessary and important decisions, and will be there every step of the way. Certified NeoGraft® technicians will be the ones who are assisting the physician during the procedure. These technicians all come with more than five years of experience and are recertified annually.
Do I need to do anything to prepare for the treatment?
For the procedure, the donor area will need to be shaved down with a zero guard in the harvesting area. As such, your treatment provider may advise you to cut your hair in preparation for shaving of the donor site at the start of your procedure. In addition to making this part of the process easier, cutting the hair short will also make for a less noticeable change after you return to your daily routine while the donor site heals and covers with new hair. For patients with longer hair, the donor area can be shaved in a way that it can be disguised by keeping the hair around it long to hide the shaved areas.
Do I need to get a buzz cut for NeoGraft® treatment?
No. If your hair is long enough, the NeoGraft® procedure can be done by just shaving small areas,which can then be covered by the rest of your hair.
How long is the treatment? How many sessions will I need to see results?
Depending on the number of grafts, the treatment can take anywhere from 4-10 hours. The number of treatments will depend on your unique circumstance, but in many cases, just one procedure can be enough to attain desirable results.
Will it be painful?
Your physician will numb the area with a local anesthesia before beginning the procedure, so you will likely feel minimal discomfort while the hair transplant is being done. Some physicians also offer the option of mild sedation for the duration of the procedure, depending on your preference. Once the numbing wears off and as the grafts heal, you may experience some tenderness around the donor site. This is a normal part of the healing process and should subside in a few days. Always be sure to consult with your physician with regards to post-procedure care and pain management.
Is this procedure guaranteed to work?
No result can ever be guaranteed, but the before-and-after photos from previous NeoGraft® patients show that incredible results are very likely. With certified NeoGraft® providers, you can rest assured that you are in very good hands. Your physician will set as realistic expectations as possible and make sure all your questions are answered.

How will I feel after the treatment?
There’s typically very little pain or discomfort after the procedure. You may experience a slight amount of drainage for the first day after your procedure, but this is minimal. You must refrain from strenuous activity for two weeks, to ensure you do not cause any harm to the newly implanted grafts. You can expect the newly implanted grafts to be slightly raised in the first week after the procedure. Around three to four days later, they will start to scab over and then possibly shed. Shedding is good and a natural part of the healing process.
How long does it take to fully recover?
Recovery time after a NeoGraft® hair restoration procedure is much faster than traditional hair transplants, because there is no incision involved. The newly implanted grafts may feel tender and appear slightly raised at first, but this should subside in one week. You may also see some scabbing, but this should also flake off within a week. Your physician will instruct you on how to properly care for your new grafts, but most patients are able to return to their usual routine within two weeks after completing the procedure.
Do I need to do anything after my treatment?
Immediately after your NeoGraft® procedure, the physician will ensure that the new grafts are secure and in their proper position. They will thoroughly rinse the treated areas and a light protective dressing may be applied. You will be given detailed instructions about how to care for the grafts when you go home, including any recommended shampoos, topical antiseptics, or hair care products. Because there is no incision, there is no need to get any sutures removed.
