NeoGraft Versus the Artas Robotic Hair Transplant

When it comes to aesthetic enhancement and cosmetic medicine as a whole, the industry has come quite a long way in recent years. With cosmetic medicine technology advancing every day, new and innovative procedures are designed to help patients fight off their worst issues and help to restore their youthful good looks. While aging is the key opposition in the world of aesthetic enhancement, one of the most common concerns amongst men and women these days has got to be hair loss. Whether it’s completely gone, and you might be bald, or the process has just begun and you are experiencing thinning hair far earlier than you would have ever dreamed. And while it seems like every provider swears by their magic potion for hair restoration, the fact of the matter is that the vast majority of the treatment methods out there aren’t nearly as effective as they claim. And oftentimes, the ones that do work have a ton of unwanted side effects and risk factors you’ve got to combat against. however, according to Dr. V and his team at Luxury Hair Suites, known to provide the best FUE hair transplant NYC has to offer, there are two hair restoration treatment options available at their practice, that are considered two of the most elite methods across the city. The procedures are the Artas Robotic hair transplant and the NeoGraft hair transplant. These hair restoration treatment options have been proven effective and have shown patients, males, and females, regardless of age, the ability to return their hair to its youth, using methods with some of the highest rates of satisfaction across New York City. Despite how prevalent these methods have become, many patients are still relatively uneducated on them. In this article, we will be going over these two procedures as best we can.

FUE Hair Transplant
Before we delve deeper into each procedure it’s important that we understand a little bit more about both of these procedures and what type of hair transplant NYC patients might opt for depending upon their issues. According to Dr. V, an expert at the Arts Robotic Hair Transplant as well as the NeoGraft Hair Transplant, both of these methods are what is known as an FUE hair transplant procedure or follicular unit extraction. This is probably the most popular form of hair transplant NYC patients can get. Within an FUE hair transplant, the surgeon obtains follicular units (naturally occurring groups of one to four hairs) from the “donor” area of the patient’s scalp. These groups of hairs are then transplanted into the target “recipient” part of the scalp; the part that needs more hair. ARTAS and NeoGraft both employ this type of minimally invasive hair restoration. Both of these machines have the advantage in that they help speed up the graft extraction process in the FUE technique. This is why these procedures are often grouped, as they utilize a specialized process to not only eliminate human error but automate much of the processes. This allows the hair follicles to stay alive and intact much more often and ensures that there is no damage to them before it is implanted into the new hair growth treatment area.

The Differences Between Artas & NeoGraft
As two of the most prominent and in-demand hair transplant methods, according to many experts, you really can’t go wrong depending upon what your specific issues might be, and as long as you are under the care of an experienced provider like Dr. V, known for the best surgical HAIR TRANSPLANT NYC has to offer. It’s important, however, that we do understand what sets these methods apart. First thing is that Artas uses a robotic-assisted device and within the ARTAS system, the machine digitally maps the donor area, analyzing the position of each natural grouping of hair. With the doctor’s guidance, the system randomly harvests donor hair, so that the area retains its original appearance. The above process is repeated until the desired amount of hair is acquired. The grafts are then transplanted into the desired areas of the scalp, according to your physician’s design.

NeoGraft on the other hand is a manual hand-held system, that works by performing a variation of FUE. Essentially it harvests and transplants groups of follicles using an automated device and not a robot. The surgeon utilizes the computerized machine’s pneumatic controls to extract the hair groupings from the donor site. He then places them immediately into the target scalp area. According to Dr. V, known for the best surgical hair transplant, NYC has to offer, the Areas extraction technique consists of a double punch arrangement with an inner punch and outer punch. The inner punch has cutting capabilities to score the uppermost part of the skin. The outer punch has a blunt edge used for dissection of the follicular units from the surrounding tissue in a way that is supposed to minimize injury to the grafts. An advantage of this system is the reduction in injury to the extracted follicle units. In contrast, the NeoGraft uses what is known as a sharp punch method of extraction in which the device is placed on the scalp. Here it separates the grafts from the surrounding donor tissue with a rotating sharp punch that is connected to a suction unit. Once the upper part of the graft is dissected by the punch, the suction pulls the graft out, separating it from the remaining tissue. For more information on either method, be sure to contact Dr. V today.
