NeoGraft FUE vs Traditional Hair Transplants

medical provider explains to balding male patient the difference between neograft fue vs traditional hair transplants

In the battle of the bald, we put our money on NeoGraft vs traditional hair transplants, which leave a lot to be desired. The type of hair transplant people are familiar with is invasive, painful, and leaves noticeable scars and lines. 

At Radiant Divine, we’ve mastered the latest technologies to deliver amazing hair restoration results with the NeoGraft hair transplant. 

What is a hair transplant?

You’ve probably heard of hair plugs already—a term commonly used to describe surgical hair transplants. Hair transplants use your own healthy follicles to regrow hair in sparse areas with significant thinning. 

Older methods for hair transplants required surgical incisions to harvest an entire strip of skin and hair for transplantation in the recipient area. The strip of skin ensured the hair follicles stayed healthy and growing for effective results. But with that level of invasiveness, there’s no escaping scarring and painful downtime.

NeoGraft hair transplants

The NeoGraft is the latest advancement on follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair restoration. When using the NeoGraft technique, we remove hair follicles with a wand that extracts them with suction. 

Instead of needing to make an incision for implanting the harvested follicles, we use a special tool that makes the incisions and implants the follicles simultaneously, so it’s a faster and less uncomfortable experience for you. 

Because hair grows in cycles, it may take awhile before you see results, but before long you’ll see new hair—your own hair—regrowing in those areas that had been thinning. 

Downtime after NeoGraft

With a traditional hair transplant, you could be looking at 5 weeks of downtime. Yikes. With NeoGraft, that gets cut down to just a week of actual downtime, followed by a couple of weeks where you’ll need to take special care of your scalp. We’ll make sure you have everything you need to heal perfectly—including supporting you with PRP injections, Nutrafol, and other therapies.

Scarring after your hair transplant

Traditional hair transplant treatments would have a line where you could see the replacement. Because they had to harvest the entire strip of skin, it’s bound to leave scarring. Because of NeoGraft’s advanced FUE technique, there is no scarring. There will be no line or any way for someone to tell you’ve had a hair replacement. It’s nothing but your own healthy hair follicles.
