There aren’t that many different options out there for patients who are seeking hair restoration. While this can help you make a treatment decision, it can still be difficult to determine which hair restoration option is best for you. Below, we’ll compare the FUE and NeoGraft™ techniques so that you can begin your hair restoration journey.
How are FUE and NeoGraft™ Different?
Many patients are surprised to learn that both FUE and NeoGraft™ actually involve similar techniques. FUE is follicular unit extraction and describes the method of transplanting donor hairs to the treatment area. This is our preferred method of hair transplantation, as it eliminates the scars associated with the outdated strip method. Typically, with this technique, your hair restoration surgeon has to remove individual follicles one-by-one, carefully transplanting them to the desired area of the head. With NeoGraft™, however, this process is completed with the assistance of a specialized hair transplant device. This makes the hair transplantation process safer, faster and more effective.
The Treatments Compared
Your treatment experience will be largely similar whether you receive manual FUE or the FUE technique via NeoGraft™. However, a NeoGraft™ treatment can be performed significantly faster than a traditional FUE procedure. This is because the precision, speed and efficacy of the NeoGraft™ device significantly shortens the time that a surgeon would otherwise spend manually extracting hair follicles. NeoGraft™ also reduces the risk of user error by offering technology-assisted hair follicle removal. Many patients therefore opt to have a NeoGraft™ treatment.
The Cost of Hair Restoration
You may also want to consider the price of both the traditional FUE and NeoGraft™ treatments. With the speed and accuracy of NeoGraft™, these treatments can be performed more quickly, and often have a more affordable price tag as a result. However, it’s important to remember that there are many other factors to consider when it comes to determining the cost of your treatment.
