Two conditions (and there are others) that cause baldness are 1) when levels of the androgen Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) are too high, such as with AGA androgenic alopecia androgenic alopecia or, 2) when the immune system is mistakenly compelled to attack the follicle, such as with alopecia aerate (AA).
There are a few safe medications on the market that have been known to boost and even regenerate hair growth. Short term, perhaps, but these really don’t qualify as a cure.
Hair continuously grows out of a single follicle for a period of about four years, all the while being nourished by surrounding cells. The follicle then undergoes a short hibernation phase of about three months, recuperates, and sheds the current hair strand attached to it before starting production back up. At any one time, about 10 percent of your hair follicles resting state while the other are busy making new hair.
When this natural process is interrupted by DHT overproduction or a confused immune system, that’s when the trouble begins.
At this point in time, the only ‘cure’ for baldness is hair transplantation. The most advanced hair restoration procedure goes well beyond merely ‘replicating’ natural hair. It is your natural hair.
It took an aggressive 10 years to mastermind and bring to the market what we call the closest thing to a cure for baldness. It’s called NeoGraft.TM
The procedure is minimally invasive requiring no surgery and most people are back to work the next day. The NeoGraft device reduces the time by 50% over any other hair transplant procedures.
With the preferred, FUE (follicular unit extraction) method there is no need to excise a piece of scalp, as in the older, surgical procedure called FUI (follicular unit transplantation). The follicular units/grafts are removed with a 1.0 mm or smaller punch to make a small circular puncture and the follicular unit/graft is extracted from the scalp. This is much less invasive and allows for quicker healing time. The hair follicles are then placed into tiny punctures in the balding or thinning areas at the proper angles to match your existing, natural hair growth patterns.
The transplanted hair will remain visible for two or three weeks and then the new transplanted hair will fall out. The bulb of the hair remains dormant under the skin for six to twelve weeks. After that time a new hair will grow from the bulb. Significant hair will grow in by 4-6 months and full hair growth is visible by 9 to 12 months.
Dallas NeoGraft experts have placed over two million grafts using the patented NeoGraft system. In fact, other physicians trust the Dallas hair restoration team to perform their personal hair transplant procedures.
Regardless of who performs your hair restoration, always ask for credentials of the physician doing the hair transplant procedure. Ask how many procedures they have performed and request seeing a portfolio of before and after photos of their actual patients.
Is NeoGraft a ‘cure’ for baldness? Thousands of NeoGraft patients would voice a resounding, “Yes”! That’s good enough for us.
