FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
SmartGraft is the most advanced minimally invasive hair restoration device for both men and women. Developed by physicians, medical scientists and engineers, SmartGraft allows physicians to perform hair restoration procedures more efficiently, safely, and in less time, while delivering natural, permanent results.
Using only local anesthetic, physicians use the SmartGraft device to gently extract individual micro hair grafts from the back of your head. These grafts are then implanted into the balding areas to regrow thick, healthy, natural hair.
Your new hair grafts will grow in the areas that are bald or thinning, creating a fuller, natural looking head of hair. Since it’s your real hair, it looks completely natural, restoring a more youthful appearance and confidence levels.
SmartGraft is superior to other hair restoration devices because: It gives you better results in less time, and it’s ideal for both men and women. It incorporates the most critical component of hair restoration — the ability for your physician to implant hair grafts in just the right spots to properly frame your face. It can harvest grafts from other parts of the body, such as chest, back and face, for better results
No. It’s an in-office procedure rather than a complicated surgery. Your physician will use a local anesthetic to numb the area where he or she is working. Most of the time you can watch videos or listen to music while the procedure is going on.
No. If your hair is long enough, a physician can harvest hair grafts using the SmartGraft by shaving small areas that can be covered by your longer hair.
Newly transplanted hair grows naturally in several phases. You’ll see new hairs in about three months, followed by a noticeable improvement in six months and full growth at 12 to 14 months
The procedure heals quickly and is not painful. You can return to work in a couple of days, with very few activity restrictions after the procedure.
The majority of hair loss patients are candidates for the SmartGraft procedure, particularly those who would like to wear very short haircuts, want the least amount of activity restriction after their procedure, or have had a prior strip procedure and need a scar camouflage. Consult a physician using the SmartGraft technology to find out more.
Yes. Because SmartGraft is a minimally invasive procedure, it is a viable option for both men and women looking to restore their own real hair.
Typically 5-6 hours. The advanced SmartGraft device can complete the harvesting portion of the procedure in one-third less time compared with other devices. That means your physician can harvest more grafts in less time and reduce the amount of time the grafts are awaiting implantation, which gives you better results.
No. Because the grafts are removed in individual micro grafts rather than a large strip requiring stitches, scarring is minimal and not visible (unlike with traditional hair transplant procedures). Wear any hairstyle you like!
