How long to wait between FUE sessions
Next graft session
Conventional wisdom dictates that secondary and tertiary hair transplant sessions be done after growth is seen from the prior session. This is usually about 6-8 months.
Neograft is just a tool(you can check it out on wikipedia). What I think you mean, is a how long between FUE procedures.
It all depends on your healing. The most common time frame between procedures in our clinic is about 6 weeks. You should however have an evaluation for the healing first.

Wait at least 3 months
If you are not transplanting into the same recipient area as your first session, I would recommend waiting a minimum of 3 months after the first session before considering transplanting again, primarily to give the donor area some time to recover.
If you do want to transplant some hair into the same area as your first session, I would recommend waiting at least 9-12 months in order to be able to see the transplanted hair growth from the first session and plan the location and direction of the new follicles accordingly.
Serial FUE transfers
Hello and thank you for posting your question.
It is advisable to wait for new hair growth to be visible prior to attempting subsequent FUE transfers. ~6-8 months in between sessions is the best estimate.
How long to wait between NeoGraft FUE Hair Transplant sessions
1. It can take 12-15 months to see full growth of hairs from transplanted hair follicles;
2. You would not want to disturb or affect the integrity of the newly transplanted grafts; and
3. It can take up to one year for all inflammation of the donor site to subside following a hair transplant procedure.
As you can see from the other responses that this question has received, surgeons do vary on the length of time that they wait between sessions and because of this I would recommend that you defer to your operating surgeons recommendation. I hope this helps and best of luck!
Wait 6 months if extracting from the same or nearby donor site to new region. 9-12 months if same region.
