For patients who experience thinning or hair loss, NeoGraft can be a great solution. But, you may be surprised to learn that NeoGraft Hair Transplant can be done for facial hair as well.

The amount of facial hair a man has comes down to genetics. Sparse, or patchy facial hair is a common occurrence for many men and can often affect their self-confidence. The solution for these men in the past has typically been shaving, but with NeoGraft there is another option.

Facial NeoGraft is performed like the typical NeoGraft Hair Transplant Procedure. We use the FUE Method which uses an automated hair transplantation device to take Individual hair follicles from the back of the scalp in groupings of 1-4 hairs, and then transplants them to the desired area. Typical facial treatment areas consist of the chin, neck, cheeks, and upper lip.

Healing and recovery from facial NeoGraft are similar to other NeoGraft procedures. Following your treatment you can expect thicker, fuller looking facial hair that grows like normal facial hair, and can be trimmed, shaped, and grown to any desired length.

Sparse, thinning, or patchy facial hair is a thing of the past with NeoGraft Hair Transplant at Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery, Lipo & Medspa. If you are interested in learning more about this procedure, give us a call at 208-939-3110 or fill out our contact form on our website to schedule your consultation!

Why Everyone Is Talking About PRP

Posted by Silk Touch Medical Aesthetics on Aug 4, 2022 12:00:00 AM

Website Specials Aug-2

PRP is the latest buzzworthy beauty treatment - and it's all over social media. The Kardashian's love it, Angelina Jolie can't stop talking about it and bloggers everywhere are singing its praises. So what's the big deal?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, and when it comes to anti-aging benefits, you can think of it as liquid gold. Like many aesthetic treatments, PRP was first used in the medical community where its benefits were initially found during wound healing and orthopedic research.

The treatment involves a technician drawing about 10mL of blood, centrifuging it to concentrate the plasma (the pale-yellow liquid component of blood that normally holds the blood cells in suspension) from the red blood cells themselves, and then the platelet rich portion of the plasma is collected and injected into the treatment area. 

The PRP jumpstarts your body’s healing mechanisms to stimulate natural healing and recovery. Since this is your body’s own substance there is little chance for an allergic or sensitivity reaction. 

PRP can be used in several ways, but one of our favorites is in combination with NeoGraft Hair Restoration surgery. PRP is injected into the scalp to help thicken hair and enhance the hair’s natural growth process. At Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa we soak all grafts in PRP during the NeoGraft treatment to further boost the healing process.

Can Women Be Treated With NeoGraft?

Posted by Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery on Mar 17, 2022 12:00:00 AM

Typically, when people discuss hair loss it is often geared toward men. This is especially true when talking about hair restoration procedures. But, did you know that more than 30 million women in the U.S. suffer from thinning hair or hair loss?

Female Hair Loss-2

Female hair loss or hair thinning can have many causes such as hormone imbalance, stress, age, medical conditions and more. For women who experience any of these, they may feel embarrassed or distraught over the loss of their hair. Women often associate their hair with their own beauty or femininity. When they lose that they can feel like they are losing a part of themselves. If you or anyone you know has ever felt this way, NeoGraft hair transplant may be a solution. 

NeoGraft at Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery, Lipo and Medspa works by using the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method. Follicles of hair are removed from the scalp in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1-4 hairs and are then placed in the areas of the scalp where balding has occurred.

The benefits of the FUE method is there is minimal discomfort, quicker recovery time, no scalp incisions, no linear scarring, and more natural looking results compared to traditional hair restoration procedures.

Every woman deserves to feel confident in her appearance, and her hair shouldn’t get in the way of that. If you think you could benefit from NeoGraft hair transplant, give us a call at 208-939-3110 to set up a consultation. 

*It’s important to note that if you are struggling with sudden, or significant hair loss you should seek medical attention first.

This Treatment Will Help Restore Your Hair After Hair Loss

Posted by Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery on Oct 7, 2021 12:00:00 AM

Hair loss in men and women is more common than you think. Millions of people struggle with hair loss at some point in their life, whether it be due to aging or other factors. We understand that for some, a full head of hair can help them feel confident and attractive. That’s why NeoGraft hair transplant can be such a great option!

NeoGraft Blog-2

NeoGraft is a gentle hair transplant treatment that is known to be one of the least invasive of the hair transplant treatments. The best part about it is you get natural-looking results! At Silk Touch we use the FUE method of hair transplant which uses the NeoGraft automated hair transplantation device to remove individual follicles of hair from the scalp and place them in areas where balding is occurring.

Within the first 2-3 weeks you can expect all of the transplanted hair to fall out, but this doesn’t mean the procedure wasn’t successful. This is simply the follicles’ reaction to the trauma of being transplanted. About 80% of the transferred follicles will survive after the NeoGraft procedure. The hair follicles then settle in and return to the anagen (growth) phase in 3-4 months, producing new hair and returning fullness to the transplanted area. 

For those of you who struggle with hair loss, look no further than NeoGraft at Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa. We will happily meet with you for a consultation to discuss your questions and concerns and see if NeoGraft is a fit for you. Give us a call at 208-939-3110 to get scheduled.

Am I a Good Candidate for NeoGraft Hair Transplant?

Posted by Brian Kerr on Dec 20, 2017 12:47:00 PM


Am I a Good Candidate for Neograft Hair Transplant?

If you are looking for a solution to hair loss, a receding hair line, hair thinning or male or female patterned baldness - then NeoGraft is your answer.

NeoGraft is the latest technology in hair transplantation. We are the first to bring this exciting new procedure to Idaho, allowing more men and women to take advantage of the benefits of no-scalpel/no-stitch FUE hair transplants

NeoGraft’s advanced technology allows patients to achieve natural looking results with no linear scar, minimal downtime and a shorter recovery period to achieve a discrete solution to hair loss.  

NeoGraft is a game changer when it comes to hair restoration technology. But, not everyone is a candidate.  

Who is a good candidate for NeoGraft?

Candidates for NeoGraft hair transplant are those individuals in good health with moderate hair loss and sufficient donor hair on the back of the scalp to transplant into the balding areas. Those with more donor hair, greater hair thickness and fullness can typically expect fuller results. It is also important that you have realistic cosmetic goals. Hair transplantation can achieve very good, natural results but cannot restore your hair to the density you had as a teenager. During your consultation, our NeoGraft coordinator Stephanie and Dr.Kerr will assess the amount of coverage needed to give you the appearance you desire.

NeoGraft patients must have a sufficient amount of hair left in the donor site to be considered candidates.

Example of a sufficient donor area (good candidate):

donor site neograft 

This is a great example of a sufficient donor site. There is enough hair in the back to take and transplant to balding areas, without impacting the cosmetic appearance of the back of the head. The hair is thick, which would make him an ideal candidate. The thicker the hair, the less hair grafts it takes to cover the balding areas. A patient does not have to have thick hair to qualify as a candidate, however those with thin hair will require more transplanted grafts to to achieve optimal results.

Example of an insufficient donor area (NOT A CANDIDATE):

bad neograft donor site boise

This is an example of someone who is not a candidate for Neograft. There is not enough hair left in the donor site to transplant to the balding areas. The hair is also very thin, which would require a higher number of hair grafts to be transplanted to fully cover each area.
