SmartGraft® uses FUE (follicular unit extraction) technology, which can be one simple solution for hair loss in both men and women. The SmartGraft® system was developed by a leading team of physicians, medical scientists, and engineers, who understand the importance of helping to assist physicians with their FUE surgeries. Giving patients an alternative to the visible linear scarring that occurs with the traditional strip method has revolutionized the way this procedure is done.
SmartGraft® uses a punch method that is safe and much healthier to the scalp than the prior strip method. Through a process known as “FUE hair restoration,” SmartGraft® uses your own hair to produce the most natural results. The procedure is completed in-office during a single visit, which means less discomfort and less recovery. And the best part? SmartGraft® produces permanent results!
FUE with SmartGraft® poses countless benefits over the older strip method of hair restoration, so it is no wonder that many patients are asking for SmartGraft®. Among the benefits of a SmartGraft® procedure are:
- A completely natural look: Your own hair is used to fill in balding spots and produce results that appear as it did prior to hair loss.
- Minimal scarring: Unlike other traditional procedures which require large strips of hair to be removed and restored, SmartGraft® uses individual micro-grafts to eliminate linear cutting and scarring.
- A single, in-office procedure: The procedure is performed in our Surgical Center and typically lasts about five hours.
- Almost no downtime: Recovery is short and patients are typically washing their hair within a few days.
How Does SmartGraft® Work?
Hair loss can occur for any number of reasons such as genetics, certain medications and diseases, and irreversible damage from excessive tension over time. No matter the root of the problem, hair loss is something that both men and women of all ages and races experience. SmartGraft® is an FUE hair restoration device available to patients who are tired of being self-conscious about their hair and are ready to make a positive change to their appearance. It is the smartest, most effective way to fight hair loss.
SmartGraft®’s FUE hair restoration device works on a microscopic level, extracting between one to four hair follicles at a time from a region of the head that has healthy hair and is “bald resistant” (typically from the back of the head). Your doctor will then implant these micro hair grafts into the targeted regions, producing the most natural, healthy results. The grafts work on such a small level, there is no noticeable scarring like with other transplantation methods.
Why is SmartGraft® the Great Choice?
The reason SmartGraft® is a great choice because of the natural results it yields. Visible changes happen quickly; you may first start to notice hair growth as soon as the first three months after your procedure. Hair will grow back in stages, and full growth will be seen within one year.
