NeoGraft: A Minimally-Invasive, Automated Follicular Unit Extraction Procedure
At the Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center, we use the Neograft Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant technology in our clinics to effectively treat hair loss. Neograft is the first FDA approved automated device used for hair transplants in men and women, and considered the most advanced and minimally invasive hair transplant method available. The device extracts individual hair follicles individually, which are then transplanted by hand to provide natural-looking results.
FUE: A Better Way to Be
When you suffer from pattern baldness it’s easy to feel there’s no respectable way to disguise your hair loss. You’ve considered hats and scarves, wigs and toupees, shaving your head, and corrective surgeries, but none of these options feel right: they are either too extreme or not extreme enough. More importantly, none of them feel like you. Ultimately, you leave the situation alone, sinking deeper into embarrassment, feeling like you’ve been abandoned to handle your problem alone.
The NeoGraft Follicular Unit Extraction procedure can help.
At the Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center, our NeoGraft solution will provide natural results that you can be proud of. By removing hair from one portion of the body and effectively planting it elsewhere, NeoGraft FUE manages to restore your hair with natural-looking results that are unmatched by any other hair replacement method.
Beware “Quick Fixes” for Hair Loss
Hair loss in men is a common occurrence. So much so, that you’ll find an assortment of infomercials or Internet ads touting hair-growing shampoos or “magic pills”. Be wary though, as most of these haven’t been clinically studied and can turn out to be a disappointment. And even medicines for male hair loss that have been approved by the FDA, such as finasteride (Propecia) and minoxidil (Rogaine), have considerable side effects.
Propecia: blocks the conversion of testosterone to DHT, but it could disrupt nerve-signaling pathways to the penis, potentially leading to erectile dysfunction and lowered libido, a study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found.
Rogaine: Advertised to stimulate hair growth, although scientists aren’t actually sure how.
In any case, treatments like these are better at maintaining the hair you still have rather than regrowing what you’ve lost, which is why the Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center offers the state-of-the-art Neograft technology, which uses Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
What to Expect From a Follicular Unit Extraction Treatment
Our minimally invasive procedure causes little to no discomfort, and can harvest and place up to 2,400 grafts in one session. After a few initial shots of local anesthetic, hair follicles are removed with gentle pneumatic pressure. This pressure is set to match each patient’s scalp, factoring in follicle depth and width as well -as the tightness or laxity of the scalp to ensure the greatest effectiveness and comfort.
Unlike other hair replacement procedures, our process removes and replaces hair one-by-one. There is no scarring involved in the NeoGraft FUE procedure. Over time, the area from which the donor hair was taken will grow back, and because the hair was taken from a section of the head “programmed” to grow naturally, the hair will continue to grow naturally wherever it is placed.
NeoGraft Offers Fast Acting Results
We use the NeoGraft procedure with great success. In fact, after completion of the procedure, you can expect significant hair growth to occur between 4-6 months, and full hair growth to occur between 9-12 months. Imagine the possibilities. In one year from now, you could be looking back on your pattern baldness as a mere memory, instead leading a life without the embarrassment of baldness.

More About The Neograft Procedure
NeoGraft is the first FDA cleared follicular unit harvesting and implantation system. The NeoGraft system delivers automation of the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique, the most advanced technique in the hair transplant industry. Using pneumatic controls to precisely extract complete individual hair follicles which can be immediately transplanted to the selected areas of the scalp, the NeoGraft automated hair transplantation system can produce precision results for those suffering from hair loss.
The targeted removal of individual hair follicles is known as “Follicular Unit Extraction” or FUE, is a minimally-invasive microsurgical procedure that has the following main steps:
Donor Hair Removal: The NeoGraft procedure begins with hair being removed from the donor area in the back of your head where your hair is genetically programmed to resist testosterone.
Dissection of the Follicular Units: Each graft is extracted with the same consistency in diameter and length resulting in a dramatically increased take rate.
Creation of the Recipient Sites: Our professional hair transplant surgeon creates recipient sites in the proper angle, direction and orientation according to the artistic hair transplant plan designed specifically for you.
Placement of the Hair Graft: The follicular units are then carefully separated by size. Grafts are transplanted into the balding and thinning areas of your scalp. Each graft is meticulously harvested as it naturally occurs and implanted individually to ensure the best results.
What makes the NeoGraft system so uniques, is that it uses a fully-automated technology that is able to quickly remove the hair follicles from the donor area and implant them to balding areas, effectively treating male hair loss quickly, and safely. NeoGraft uses a controlled pneumatic pressure to slide out the graft smoothly, so there is no pulling or twisting which can risk damaging the graft. Because the NeoGraft transplant is faster than other out of date methods, the grafts can be re-implanted sooner which keeps them more robust, increasing the success of the grafting process.
