NeoGraft® State-of-the-Art Hair Transplantation
You deserve to love your hairline! Vedas Medical Spa’s NeoGraft’s hair transplant technique will take care of your thinning or receding hair and restore your self-confidence.
Are you one of approximately 50 million men and approximately 30 million women, including many in The Woodlands, who suffer from male/female pattern baldness or thinning hair? You might shy away from (or are not a candidate for) the traditional “strip method” of hair replacement, but you should not even have to consider that method, especially since you don’t want the slow recovery time, the loss of feeling at the incision site, the linear scar on the back of your head, or the amount of post-operative pain involved!
After much research, we now 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 on the back of your head (the “donor area”) in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1-4 hairs. Next, the follicles are artistically implanted in the areas of the scalp where balding has occurred.
The results: a natural-looking hair transplant!
Top Reasons Why The NeoGraft Procedure Is Your Solution to Fight Hair Loss:
- It’s the least invasive procedure for hair restoration, using no stitches or staples.
- There is little-to-no discomfort!
- Your recovery time is quick, and you can resume your normal activity after only a few days.
- Your hairline will be natural-looking, and you will have no linear scar where hair has been harvested to transplant.
- We have financing programs available to meet your hair transplant budget.
How NeoGraft Works
Step 1. Donor Hair Removal
The procedure is simple. First, NeoGraft works by removing hair from the donor area in the back of your head where your hair is genetically programmed to resist testosterone. This is known as your donor hair.
Step 2. Follicular Unit Extraction
Then, we extract each graft with the same consistency in diameter and length. This results in a dramatically increased take rate.
Step 3. Creation of the Recipient Sites
The hair transplant surgeon creates recipient sites in the proper angle, direction, and orientation according to the artistic hair transplant plan designed specifically for you
Placement of the Hair Graft
Finally, the follicular units are carefully separated by size. We transplant the grafts into the balding and thinning areas of your scalp. Each graft is meticulously harvested as it naturally occurs and implanted individually to ensure the best results.

Why Choose the NeoGraft Procedure?
The NeoGraft system is the first and only FDA cleared follicular unit harvesting and implantation system. The NeoGraft system delivers automation of the FUE technique, the most advanced technique in the hair transplant industry.
This revolutionary system uses pneumatic controls to precisely extract complete individual hair follicles, which can be immediately transplanted to the selected areas of the scalp. The NeoGraft automated hair transplantation system is the only complete harvesting system on the market and has the only ‘NO TOUCH’ implantation technology.
Hair Restoration with NeoGraft technology provides absolute exact harvesting and placement, delivering repeatable results. Each follicle is removed individually while the patient is comfortable, creating a natural looking head of hair with this minimally-invasive procedure.
Hair loss can be a very emotional part of the natural aging process, and seeking ways to curb this process used to be a challenge. The NeoGraft system’s advanced technology offers a discreet solution to hair loss, allowing patients to achieve natural looking results with no linear scar, minimal downtime and a shorter recovery period. Hair restoration with the NeoGraft procedure is unnoticeable, making it your secret to tell.
Benefits of the FUE Method:
You can restore your younger hairline with NeoGraft. If you have already had “strip” method hair transplants, the NeoGraft Automated FUE is a useful procedure to fix visible linear scars from those previous “strip” surgeries by ‘filling in’ or camouflaging those old scars by transplanting new follicles into the area.
Some Frequently Asked Questions About NeoGraft
What is NeoGraft?
NeoGraft is a new automated hair transplant system which facilitates the harvesting of follicles during a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant, dramatically improving the accuracy and speed over previously used manual extraction instruments.
How do I know I’m a good candidate?
If you would like the option of wearing a very short haircut in the back or sides of their scalp, or if you want the least amount of activity restriction (e.g. athletes) after your hair transplant procedure, you may be good candidates for FUE. The NeoGraft FUE System can also be used for ‘scar camouflage’ procedures if you have had prior linear harvests, as well as for body hair transplants.
Candidates for hair restoration surgery are those individuals in good health with moderate hair loss and sufficient donor hair on the back of the scalp to transplant into the balding areas. Those with more donor hair, and greater hair density and fullness can typically expect fuller results. Do you have reasonable cosmetic goals? Hair transplantation can achieve very good, natural results but cannot restore your hair to the density you had as a teenager. Your doctor will assess the amount of coverage needed to give you the appearance you desire.
How is NeoGraft performed?
NeoGraft uses controlled pneumatic pressure to slide out the graft smoothly, so there is no pulling or twisting that can risk damaging the graft. Your grafts can be re-implanted sooner, keeping them more robust and resulting in a natural looking hairline.
How soon will I see results?
The science behind grafting is simple. Hair follicles are taken from the hair in the back of the head that naturally continues to grow. The follicles that hold your transplanted hair are living tissues that grow cyclically. Once the normal hair follicle has been implanted into the balding area, the grafted hair will stay in place for about two to three weeks before shedding – this is normal and an important part of the new growth process. After shedding, the new growth will begin in 3-4 months and your hair will continue to grow normally. More importantly, your results will look healthy and natural.
How long will the hair last?
Hair loss does not stop after transplantation – some people will need continued maintenance and further sessions will likely be required, particularly if your balding pattern continues with age. Progressive hair loss or the desire for more density may require more transplants. An estimate of balding pattern and the number of procedures needed will be discussed during the consultation with your doctor.
What is an “FUE” hair transplant?
“F.U.E.” or “Follicular-Unit Extraction” is an advanced, minimally-invasive hair transplant method which allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the donor area without a scalpel incision or the necessary stitches, and therefore leaves no linear scar.
What are some benefits of NeoGraft over manual FUE techniques?
The highly ergonomic mechanical NeoGraft system works as a natural extension of the surgeons’ hand, allowing for faster and more accurate harvesting of hair follicles. NeoGraft patients now reach their goal with less time in the procedure room or fewer FUE procedures altogether.
Is FUE/NeoGraft suitable for both men and women?
Yes. Because FUE/NeoGraft is a minimally-invasive procedure, it is a viable option for both men and women looking to restore their own living and growing hair with transplantation.
Do I have to get a total ‘buzz cut’ to have an FUE/NeoGraft procedure?
No, not if you wear your hair long. If your donor hair is long enough, harvesting using the FUE/NeoGraft can be done by shaving small areas which can be covered by your other, existing hair. If you wear your hair short, it helps to shave it close for maximum yield. It looks more natural sooner as the transplanted grafts are short as well.
