How Does Smartgraft Work?


SmartGraftHarvesterSmartGraft utilizes the Advanced Follicular Unit Extraction (AFUE) procedure which, in turn, uses a "Smart" motorized handpiece to extract grafts from a patient's bald-resistant donor area, generally the back of the head where the hair is thicker and denser. Each graft contains one to four hair follicles.

SmartHarvest technology separates and counts these grafts and stores them in a temperature-controlled sterile solution while awaiting implantation, for better graft viability. Since it leaves only small holes where the grafts were extracted, the donor area heals within 24 to 48 hours, leaving no linear scar.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)  is the traditional method where individual follicular units are extracted with the use of a circular punch device. Thousands of FUE grafts can be transplanted into small slits with this technique. The results are more natural-appearing with no scarring. The downside to FUE is that it is highly time-consuming, monotonous, and more expensive for the patient.

Automated follicular unit extraction (AFUE) is an advanced form of FUE. It uses a hand-guided punch tool to assist the surgeon in removing individual hair follicles from the back and sides of the scalp. An automated high-pressure pneumatic system suctions the hair follicles and collects them, reducing the physical handling of the hair follicles by the surgeon. It is minimally invasive and virtually painless. As with FUE, there is no scar or sutures.

Recovery is faster than with FUE, with most patients returning to work in as little as 2 to 3 days. The greatest benefit of AFUE is that more hair follicles can be harvested and transplanted at a given time, with a higher survival rate due to the limited handling of the follicles. Less time spent by the surgeon working with each follicle means a reduced cost for patients compared to traditional follicular unit extraction.
