How can I treat baldness?

Is baldness or hair loss causing you emotional distress? Baldness is a problem that millions of men and women experience in their lifetime, and treating it can be challenging. People dealing with baldness are often frustrated when they are unable to find a way to stop the hair loss, and so they often wonder – How can I treat baldness.

Hairloss is often hereditary, but it may also be due to factors such as hormonal changes, stress, and certain medications. Hair loss in men is usually the result of male pattern baldness.

How can I treat baldness?
The Strip harvesting method has traditionally been used to treat baldness, but NeoGraft is a revolutionary treatment alternative that delivers excellent hair transplant results.

Treating baldness with NeoGraft
NeoGraft is a minimally invasive procedure that restores thinning hair using a system of automated Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). It is an advanced hair restoration instrument that delivers natural looking results. The systemextracts hair follicles individually from the donor area, and they are then transplanted to the bald spot using the NeoGraft ‘no touch’ transplantation method.

Downtime is minimal after NeoGraft, so most patients are able to return to their normal routine within a few days. There is usually some swelling and discomfort in the donor and transplantation sites after the procedure, but side-effects subside gradually in the following weeks.

NeoGraft is a revolutionary treatment for baldness that is safe, efficient, and produces long-lasting results.

Do FUE Hair Transplants work differently for women versus men?

Hair loss was once a hidden epidemic, but it’s now being discussed more openly, especially among men. Thinning on top is much more common in men than it is with women; so men very often choose to undergo hair transplant surgery to halt hair loss. This is often done with the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method.  But do FUE hair transplants work differently for women versus men?

FUE Hair Transplant
Hair transplant surgery has been around for many years, but advances in technology have improved the quality of restoration, and made the process more efficient.

FUE is now done using automated instruments that extract clusters of hair from the donor site at the back of the head. The hairs are then individually transferred to the balding spot. It creates a natural pattern of hair growth, without any visible scarring.

Are FUE transplants different for women and men?
The FUE technique works the same for women as it does for men. However, the donor area needs to be shaved for the transplant, and this can be trickier for women with long hair. Some doctors are careful to shave only the portion of the scalp and leave the surrounding hair long, so that the tiny scars are well-hidden while the hair grows back.

Who is a good candidate?
People suffering with mild to moderate baldness, are generally good candidates for hair transplant surgery. However, they also need to have sufficient quantity of donor hair on the back of the head, or on the sides of the scalp.
