SmartGraft is an automated hair restoration device that uses the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method to harvest individual hair follicles from the donor area, usually back of the head, and transplanting them to areas that are experiencing thinning or balding. This minimally-invasive hair restoration method allows the hair follicles to be harvested without the use of a scalpel or need for stitches, which means the linear scarring associated with most hair transplant procedures is not incurred.

- Minimal discomfort

What can I expect during a treatment session?
During your procedure, we will use the SmartGraft device to extract individual hair follicles from the back of your head and implant them into the areas of the head that are experiencing thinning or balding. This minimally-invasive hair restoration procedure is performed under a local anesthetic to reduce the downtime associated with the procedure and enable you to return to your daily routine in a quicker manner. A SmartGraft procedure typically takes about five to six hours to complete and patients should only require one procedure to achieve optimal results.
What results can I expect?
The new hair grafts will begin to grow in the balding or thinning areas and will give the hair a fuller, thicker appearance.Most patients begin to see new hair growth in the treated areas approximately three months after their SmartGraft procedure, with a more noticeable improvement in hair fullness after about six months. You should see the full effects of this hair restoration treatment approximately 12 to 14 months after your procedure.
What is the recovery period?
There is minimal downtime associated with this hair restoration procedure and most patients are able to return to work within a few days with minimal activity restrictions. We will discuss your recovery period with you more thoroughly following your SmartGraft procedure.
Am I a candidate?
Men and women who are interested in a lasting solution to hair loss or thinning are potential candidates for the SmartGraft procedure. This is an ideal hair restoration method for patients who do not want to go through the long recovery period associated with traditional hair transplant procedures or for those who are interested in camouflaging scarring from previous hair transplant procedures. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your desired results and review the severity of hair thinning or hair loss to determine if SmartGraft is the right hair restoration treatment for you.
