If you have ever looked in the mirror and realized that your hair is thinning, you are not alone. In fact, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, about 80 million men and women in the United States have some form of genetic pattern baldness or thinning hair. Many of these people are looking for a solution to this problem - especially for a safe, natural-looking transplant solution.
To many Grand Rapids, MI residents, a full head of hair represents attractiveness and desirability both personally and professionally. For this reason, it is vital to understand what effects a hair restoration procedure can have on your daily interactions with people and in all other aspects of your life. Hair Restoration should be unnoticeable to all but those you tell.
The facts are that approximately 50 million men and approximately 30 million women, including many in Grand Rapids, suffer from male/female pattern baldness or thinning hair. Many potential patients shy-away from (or are not candidates for) the traditional "strip method" of hair replacement because of the slow recovery time, the loss of feeling at the incision site, the tiny linear scar on the back of the head, or the amount of post-operative pain involved.
After much research, we have chosen to offer the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method utilizing the NeoGraft® Automated Hair Transplantation system. The FUE method of hair transplantation removes individual hair follicles from the scalp in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1-4 hairs and are then placed in the areas of the scalp where balding has occurred.
NeoGraft is a new automated hair transplant system which simplifies the harvesting of follicles during a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant, dramatically improving the accuracy and speed compared to previously used manual extraction instruments.
At Remedy Hair Restoration & Medical Spa, we believe that you deserve to experience a hair restoration solution you can trust. We have chosen to provide our patients with the best and NeoGraft™ has a lot of the advantages in comparison to more traditional hair restoration procedures, such as the "strip method." One of the best things about the NeoGraft procedure is that it does not leave a visible scar on your head, saving you from having another reason to be embarrassed. We are dedicated to making sure our patients are satisfied and knowledgeable about hair loss. We also strive to educate patients on all the hair restoration options.
The NeoGraft® Automated FUE is also a useful procedure to fix visible linear scars from previous "strip" surgeries. FUE can be used to 'fill in' or camouflage those old scars by transplanting new follicles into the area.
