Neograft and ARTAS Scar-Free Hair Transplants: A comparison of Benefits

Hair restoration market is growing. Rising competition in job market, pressure in social relationships and the aging baby boomer population affected by hair loss have contributed for this growth. The competition and demand from customers for quality treatment have brought several competitive technologies to the market.

Some of the most advanced technologies for hair restoration are NeoGraft and ARTAS. Both technologies are approved by the FDA. The two procedures are now being widely used as alternatives to traditional strip method or Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT). FUT or strip surgery is not the ideal method for male patients as it leaves long permanent scar on the back of their scalp.

What is NeoGraft?

NeoGraft is a device that facilitates the harvesting of hair follicles during a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant. The process uses automated machines for the harvesting hair follicles, dramatically improving the accuracy and speed over previously used manual extraction instruments.

Earlier methods of FUE were performed by hand. It has been too time-consuming and expensive for widespread use. The NeoGraft system offers technological advances that can reduce the time and cost of transplants, making FUE more practical for both men and women of all ages.

In NeoGraft, hair follicles are gently lifted out of the scalp with a small instrument and light suction, and then placed into the bald or thinning areas with reverse air pressure. With NeoGraft, hair is harvested without leaving the large linear scar associated with the strip method.

The technology has proved instrumental in the delivery of hair transplant services because it assists the surgeon to transplant the hair with absolute precision. The equipment operates under pneumatic pressure ensuring automated control. The surgery leaves a completely natural appearance and with less pain and downtime. There is minimal discomfort. Patients leave the clinic immediately after the procedure, and they may join work the next day.

What is ARTAS?

ARTAS System is a minimally invasive solution for permanent, natural looking hair. The process involves transplanting healthy follicles to the patient's scalp most affected by baldness with the help of robots. The procedure is minimally invasive and utilizes sophisticated digital mapping and precision robotics to deliver beautiful, natural looking results.

An FDA-approved technology, ARTAS was developed with several leading hair restoration physicians. The advantage of this computer-assisted and image-guided hair restoration technique is that it offers a minimally invasive solution for permanent, natural-looking results.

Hair transplant using ARTAS system involves transplanting healthy follicles to the patient's scalp using a robot. ARTAS hair restoration procedure is the right hair restoration solution because the implanted hairs develop their blood supply, so they grow naturally like other hairs. Results are visible in a few months' time.

Advanced hair restoration technologies like NeoGraft and ARTAS are the best solution for males suffering from androgenic alopecia. These treatments are prescribed for patients above 35. This is the time when the pattern of the baldness becomes clear. The treatment can also be used to thicken mustache, beard, or eyebrows.
