At The Griffin Center of Hair Restoration and Research, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the most advanced hair restoration techniques. As a leader in hair transplantation surgery, Dr. Edmond Griffin is continually exploring the latest hair restoration technologies to further refine hair restoration results.
Focused on keeping patients informed and educated, we want to tell you what’s new for hair loss. You may have heard of follicular unit extraction or FUE. This hair transplantation surgery involves individually extracting one follicular unit of hair at a time. During FUE, follicular units, usually consisting of between 1-4 hairs, are taken from the back and side of the head. This procedure has the advantage of leaving no linear scars and good for patients who wear their hair short and tend to scar easily. The downside of FUE is it can be more time consuming, however, a new automated device, called NeoGraft™, can help in assistance with the FUE technique.
Neo Graft patients have the benefit of quicker FUE procedure time as the device individually extracts each follicular unit mechanically with Dr. Griffin’s guidance. The NeoGraft technology can also potentially decrease mechanical injury to grafts since it doesn’t require forceps during extraction like all the other forms of follicular unit extraction.
Patients who are just noticing the signs of hair thinning and would like to first try a non-surgical hair loss treatment may consider LaserCap™ , the newest laser hair treatment. The LaserCap™ uses red light therapy to treat the entire affected scalp. Unlike laser comb devices and in-office red light laser hood devices, LaserCap™ can be worn under a baseball cap or any other hat and uses a rechargeable battery pack allowing patients the convenience to continue their daily routine.
If you are interested in NeoGraft™, LaserCap™, or would like to know other hair restoration options available such as hair loss prevention, please call our office today.
