How Does the ARTAS Hair Transplantation Procedure Work?
As one of the newest and most advanced hair restoration method available, the ARTAS robotic hair transplantation procedure is truly the first of its kind. Adding to the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique in which hair follicles are individually removed from an area near the back of the head and individually transplanted to the thinning area, the ARTAS system both shortens the procedure time and provides more precise, natural results. With the hair restoration industry buzzing about robotic hair transplantation using ARTAS, it’s beneficial to know how the process works.
Behind the ARTAS procedure
The ARTAS system offers first ever FDA-approved hair transplant robot, designed to harvest hundreds to thousands of individual hair follicles from a suitable patch of skin. The process allows cosmetic surgeons to use the grafts and implant them in balding or bare areas. The implanted follicles can then reconnect with the blood supply and continue growing hairs as before. The entire ARTAS procedure can be broken out into four overall steps:
- The ARTAS Robotic System identifies your optimal hairs to use for transplant using precision 3-D images of the scalp and measuring the angle and depth of each hair follicle.
- Hair is selectively harvested with robotic precision to preserve the natural look of the donor area.
- The physician transplants hair into the desired balding areas.
- Patients will begin see noticeable, permanent, thicker hair growth in about six months.
The robotic technology difference
The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant system uses innovative technology to allow the newly transplanted follicles to maintain a natural appearance. Unlike traditional transplant methods, there is no linear scar, downtime or unnatural looking results. In addition, the unmatched precision robotic technology provides speed and accuracy beyond manual techniques.
