Female Hair Restoration: NeoGraft vs the Strip Method
NeoGraft is the least invasive hair restoration treatment available today, and it delivers the best results with little to no downtime. It’s a fast and easy way to regrow your own hair in a natural way—permanently. And it has some advantages that are particularly beneficial to women.
The two most common minimally-invasive hair transplant procedures are Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), also called strip method, and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). The main difference is that with FUT your hair is harvested as a strip removed from the back of your head, whereas with FUE the hair grafts are extracted individually. Since most women suffering from hair loss battle with thinning hair and not baldness, it’s harder to harvest hair in strips because the donor hair isn’t all located in one area. FUE is the perfect alternative. It allows the technician administering the procedure to extract hair grafts from all over the head to keep the resulting look more natural.
Compared to FUT, NeoGraft FUE hair restoration has several advantages:
- It requires no stitches or staples
- Hair grafts can be harvested from all over the head
- It leaves no unsightly linear scar to worry about
- The recovery time is fast
