Prior to SmartGraft®, hair restoration procedures could require surgery, leaving a large linear scar across the back of the head. Recovery time was slow and very uncomfortable.
SmartGraft is a smart option for both men and women searching for a permanent solution to hair loss. SmartGraft uses a combination of precision craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology rather than a scalpel.
The procedure can be done with more precision in less time than many other FUE methods. Patients can go back to work in one or two days, and results look and feel completely natural. Instructions on what to do to get prepared for the day of the procedure will be given to you.
Minimally Invasive - Virtually no interruption of lifestyle
Expert Harvesting - Less time in the doctor's chair, in and out in a day
Not Gender Specific - Ideal for both men and women of all hair types
Natural Results - Hair grows naturally and complete in a period between 9 months to a year
More Transplant Options - Solve permanent hair loss in other areas (body & facial hair, eyebrows)
Q & A
What is SmartGraft?
Many believe that SmartGraft is simply a better or maybe "smarter!" way to perform a hair transplant. SmartGraft from Vision Medical, Inc. is a breakthrough device that helps surgeons, and their specialized teams perform FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction hair transplantation. Less invasive than traditional linear "strip" harvesting, Follicular Unit Extraction uses no scalpel, no stitches, no staples in the donor area-allowing for faster healing and less discomfort after transplantation.
What is FUE Follicular Unit Extraction?
Hair transplantation is the redistribution of permanent, living and growing hair follicles from the "Donor" Area into a thinning or balding "Recipient" area of the scalp. FUE is a harvesting technique which is less invasive than traditional strip or linear harvesting which requires no scalpel or stitches in the Donor Area. Recovery from FUE procedures is more comfortable and less restrictive than with linear or strip harvesting. Most patients require absolutely NO strong pain medications during their recovery and can return to non-impact athletic physical activity in just several days.
What Makes SmartGraft Different?
SmartGraft is the fastest, most advanced hand-held device for minimally invasive FUE Follicular Unit Extraction hair transplant procedures, allowing for the individual harvesting of follicular unit grafts directly from the Donor Area of the scalp without leaving a linear scar or "zipper" appearance. Working just like a precise microsurgical extension of the human hand, SmartGraft's ergonomic handpiece and storage system was designed to help separate, extract and store FUE grafts during hair transplantation. Fewer steps, less handling and transferring of grafts allows the FUE procedure to be accomplished at a faster speed. Shorter FUE procedure times means reduced risks of graft failure and poor growth quality, as well as enhanced patient comfort. SmartGraft also has a complete microprocessor-controlled graft extraction and storage system which reduces the risk of damage to the fragile FUE grafts.
What is the benefit of FUE with SmartGraft over other FUE devices?
The main benefit of SmartGraft over other FUE devices is that it reduces the trauma, manual handling, and potential damage to the harvested FUE grafts. Once the SmartGraft separates the chosen hair follicles from the surrounding tissue, gentle suction removes the graft from the scalp. No additional manual human manipulation is required prior to implantation, unlike some other FUE devices. The SmartGraft system gently transfers each harvested hair follicle graft into a highly specialized storage system which maintains the ideal environment for graft preservation outside of the body.
