NeoGraft Hair Restoration for Women
Although usually thought of as a condition affecting men, hair loss is also a problem for many women. Women’s hair loss can be the result of aging, heredity, medications or an underlying medical condition. It can take the form of pattern baldness, patchy spots or thinning hair, and can begin at any age.
Women with hair loss may benefit from the NeoGraft® Automated Hair-Transplantation System, which uses an innovative technique that makes hair transplantation less painful, and reduces post-procedure recovery time.
The NeoGraft system involves harvesting hair follicles for targeted placement in another area of the scalp. Once transplanted, the healthy follicles produce hair that should continue to grow for the rest of the patient’s life.

Therefore, a women who benefits most from NeoGraft hair transplantation has healthy areas of hair.
