Benefits of SmartGraft for Hair Restoration

It’s normal to lose anywhere between 50 and 100 hairs every single day, and chances are, you won’t notice them. However, for some people, hair loss is a more significant issue. Estimated to affect around 1 in 5 Americans, hair loss is an extremely common problem.

Nevertheless, despite affecting so many people, it is still a leading cause of self-consciousness and low self-esteem among both men and women alike. Fortunately, there is no need to suffer from hair loss thanks to SmartGraftô.


What is SmartGraft?

SmartGraft is an effective, advanced hair restoration technique that uses follicular unit extraction (known as FUE) to produce outstanding results. The FUE method sees hair extracted from a donor region and then transplanted to your scalp. However, rather than this being done manually, SmartGraft uses cutting-edge technology to perform the treatment in a much less invasive way. The SmartGraft machine, invented by Vision Medical, can accomplish a successful transplant in fewer steps.


SmartGraft works on a microscopic level, extracting between one and four follicles at a time from the donor area. This donor area is typically one that is considered ‘bald resistant’, such as the hair found at the very back of the head. Every effort will be made to ensure that the removal of the donor's hair is as discreet as possible. Once the donor's hair has been retrieved, your technician will implant the grafts into the areas targeted for improvement.


SmartGraft is usually performed using a local anesthetic, meaning that patients are kept comfortable for the duration of the treatment.


Benefits of SmartGraft


  • Less invasive grafting treatment for transplanting hair, which means that patients feel little to no discomfort.

  • Local anesthetic can be made available if you feel that you require it.

  • The transplant takes place in a single appointment (approx. 5 hours long).

  • Patients are not left with a linear scar or numbness where the donor's hair has been harvested.

  • There is no need for any stitches or staples.

  • Recovery is faster, with less post-procedure discomfort.

  • Patients can still have very short haircuts following their transplant.

  • There are fewer restrictions on activity after the procedure, with most patients able to return to their usual job the very next day.

  • SmartGraft transplants approximately twice as many hair grafts as manually-performed FUE surgery.

  • SmartGraft is less expensive than manual FUE treatment and can reduce the need for additional surgeries.

  • Because your own hair is used, SmartGraft produces the healthiest and most natural look possible.

  • It’s possible to sustain your results indefinitely.


Results of SmartGraft?

Most patients can begin to see their new hair regrowth in the treated areas approximately three months after their SmartGraft procedure. At around six months post-treatment, there should be considerable fullness, with optimal results achieved approximately 12-14 months after your procedure.
