Does Minoxidil Improve Graft Survival After a Hair Transplant?

August 17th, 2016

Q: Does minoxidil play any role in the survival of the grafts after a Neograft/FUE procedure?

A: When a doctor performs a hair transplant, the hair should be taken from the permanent zone so, by definition, that hair is not affected by medication (i.e. does not need to be maintained by either minoxidil or finasteride). If the doctors using Neograft are suggesting that minoxidil increases survival, then they are probably harvesting hair outside the permanent zone. To clarify, I use the ARTAS robotic system for our FUE procedures, not Neograft, as the former is a far more accurate device for harvesting.
