Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
The Griffin Center of Hair Restoration & Research a leader in hair transplantation, is now offering NeoGraft, the newest technology in follicular unit extraction (FUE) in Atlanta, GA. During follicular unit extraction one follicular unit is extracted at a time. NeoGraft is an automated device that assists the FUE technique for hair restoration. Unlike other forms of FUE, this treatment takes less time and can potentially decrease mechanical injury to the grafts since it doesn’t require a pulling action with forceps during extraction.
This FDA approved, minimally invasive technology individually extracts one follicular unit rather than a donor strip, which is used in follicular unit grafting. This FUE technique leaves no linear scars in the donor area and is appropriate for those patients who tend to scar easily. The NeoGraft has been featured in numerous media outlets including CNN, NBC News, ABC News and Rachel Ray. By necessity it leaves small round scars which shrink with time and are easily covered by most hair lengths.
Using the FUE technique, the NeoGraft removes one follicle at a time, through a patented suction process aiding extraction. There is no harsh pulling or compression by forceps which could harm the delicate follicles. The individual follicle bundle is then transplanted into small incisions into the bald areas of the scalp, similar to the technique used with strip grafting. Recovery time is shortened and no sutures need to be removed. Patients claim less discomfort and rapid return to their former activities. Because the hair must be cut short for the FUE this area of short hair remains after surgery and grows in over the next two weeks. In the strip graft the linear scar is easily covered by hair and is not noticed after surgery. The recipient site of both strip and FUE look the same after surgery.
Although this technology is facilitated in part by automation, NeoGraft hair transplant procedures at the Griffin Center of Hair Restoration are performed by internationally recognized hair restoration surgeon, Dr. Edmond Griffin, with 35 years of hair transplant experience. He is now joined by Dr. Ashley Curtis whose main focus is hair transplantation, loss and restoration in women. Now Dr. Curtis has been with the Griffin team for over a year and is becoming a leader in hair loss problems in women. Those of you that know Dr. Griffin know that while he stays abreast on the newest hair restoration and hair loss advancements, he prides himself on being very hands on with each procedure he performs. He assures that being actively involved with each procedure is an integral part of his practice and that this type of automated system will only help his practice stay at the forefront of innovative hair restoration technology. He is excited about this technique providing patients with completely natural results and virtually undetectable incisions. Our providers help each patient achieve the most natural-looking hair growth possible.
