How to Prepare For Your ARTAS Procedure
The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System is a remarkable achievement in hair restoration. It’s the most advanced and proven solution for the treatment of hair loss and thinning. While the procedure itself is quick and simple, you’ll need to prepare for it well in advance if you want to get the best results. Follow these tips to ensure that your ARTAS procedure goes off without a hitch:
Schedule a Consultation With Your Hair Restoration Specialist
In preparation for your ARTAS procedure, you’ll need to schedule a consultation with your doctor. During this visit, your doctor will go over the procedure in detail and answer any questions you may have.
Before your consultation, we recommend that you: Make a list of any medications you are taking, including supplements such as vitamins; Note any allergies or sensitivities to medications or other treatments; Write down questions you have about the procedure so they can answer all of them during your consultation.
Don't Take Blood Thinners Before Your ARTAS Procedure
It’s important to be aware of the risks of taking blood thinners before your ARTAS procedure. These medications can increase bleeding. So, if you take aspirin, ibuprofen, or another type of blood thinner, it is recommended that you stop taking these medications at least two weeks before your surgery.
Avoid Sun Exposure Prior to Procedure
You should try to avoid sun exposure before your procedure. This means staying indoors and avoiding activities that put you at risk of getting a sunburn, such as going to the beach or tanning beds. If you can’t avoid being outside for 48 hours before your ARTAS procedure, make sure that you wear sunscreen and protective clothing.
Before your ARTAS Procedure, Avoid Smoking and Alcohol
Alcohol can affect blood clotting and increase bleeding risks during and after surgery. On the other hand, smoking leads to reduced oxygen levels in the blood. This makes the hair tissues less able to use the oxygen they need and that can endanger the operation. Consuming alcohol and smoking also impact the healing process. They contain a variety of chemicals that will be released into your system and can delay healing. This is why you need to stop consuming such substances for a week before the ARTAS procedure.
Instead, follow a healthy diet. Your body needs nutrients to heal and repair, so eating healthy balanced meals will help you recover faster.
It is Very Important to Stay Hydrated
Drinking plenty of water the day before and on the day of your procedure will reduce your risk for complications. The day before your ARTAS treatment, drink at least 2 liters of fluid (about 8 cups). On the morning of your procedure, you may need to drink even more to help ensure that you’re fully hydrated.
Schedule a Transitional Haircut
It’s best to have your donor site in the back of your head no more than one millimeter long. Many people prefer to schedule transitional haircuts. So, you can shorten your hair to about three millimeters one month before your ARTAS procedure. Then, shorten it again just a few days before having the surgery so that others won’t notice a difference! Also, make sure that you use a prescription shampoo. These shampoos are designed specifically to cleanse your scalp and hair without drying it out or causing irritation.
Reduce Pre-procedure Anxiety by Preparing For Your ARTAS Procedure in Advance
The more prepared you are, the less anxious you will be. The following suggestions may help: Review the instructions provided by your doctor or medical team; Ask questions if there’s something that isn’t clear to you and write down the answers; Schedule time off work so that you don’t have anything important on your mind while recovering from your procedure, and relax before the big day arrives.

What is ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration
Table of Contents
In the last decade, robotic hair transplantation has quickly become one of the most popular methods for restoring hair. This advanced technology is much more precise and efficient than traditional techniques that involve manual surgery. The benefits of robotic hair transplantation are numerous, including reduced blood loss and scarring, as well as faster healing time. However, many people are still reluctant to try this procedure because they’re unsure about how it works or whether it’s right for them. Today we’ll take an in-depth look at what you need to know about ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration — from how the technology works to its advantages over traditional methods — so that you can make an informed decision about whether it might be right for you!
What Is ARTAS?
ARTAS is an advanced, minimally invasive hair restoration system that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to deliver permanent, natural-looking results without leaving a linear scar. ARTAS robotic hair restoration is so much faster and more precise than traditional hair restoration methods. This minimizes discomfort, bleeding, and swelling, which can occur with manual extraction.
How Does It Work?
The ARTAS robotic system uses advanced 3D imaging technology to scan the patient’s scalp and produce a 3D model of their head. After that, it uses a high-definition stereoscopic vision and employs artificial intelligence to select the best hair follicles from your scalp and then harvest them. It does so with the precision of a robotic arm, leaving no linear scarring. The harvested hair follicles are then precisely implanted on the recipient site (the bald area). The process protects your existing healthy hair, while also maintaining a natural appearance in both the donor area and the new implantation area.
The ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration System offers several advantages over traditional surgery:
Its Precision Is Unrivaled
The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant is the most precise method of hair restoration. It uses a robotic arm to place individual grafts into the scalp, which results in a more natural-looking transplant and can minimize scarring.
It's a Minimally Invasive Procedure
The procedure is minimally invasive, which means that there are no large incisions made on the skin. Instead, the robot accesses the scalp through small punctures that are used to insert follicular units into your head. This method of accessing your scalp via microsites helps reduce scarring and swelling while simultaneously allowing the ARTAS robot to move around within your head without disrupting surrounding tissue or harming important areas like nerves and blood vessels.
Nearly Painless Procedure
The surgery takes place under local anesthesia and the robot is programmed to move in a gentle, controlled manner without damaging the surrounding tissue.
The recovery time is much faster than traditional hair transplant procedures. Usually, patients can return to work within one week.
ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration Offers Permanent Results
ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant offers permanent results. Unlike traditional hair restoration procedures, the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant procedure is performed in a single session and the transplanted hairs remain permanently.
Since there’s no need for stitches, there are no visible scars left by the procedure—just new, healthy, natural-looking hair!
Is the ARTAS robotic hair restoration procedure safe?
Yes, the procedure is safe. Plus, the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant is used by highly trained surgeons with years of experience in the field of hair restoration. So, you can be sure that your procedure will be performed very safely.
How soon will I see results?
Although the process is highly effective and minimally invasive, it’s important to remember that transplanted hair grows naturally in phases. New hairs are seen about 3 months after the procedure but, after a year, you will enjoy full results. However, the timeline is different for every patient, depending on their own situation.
Am I a Good Candidate for an ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration?
If you have a good donor area, are in relatively good health, and are looking to improve the appearance of your hairline and thicker hair, or restore hair to completely bald areas, then you may be a good candidate for an ARTAS robotic hair transplant.
How Can I Prepare for My ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant Surgery?
Before your surgery, you will need to make sure that you are ready to undergo the procedure. It is important that you have had a physical examination by your physician and that they have determined that you are in good enough health to undergo the procedure. Your physician will also be able to assess whether or not there are any underlying conditions that may affect the outcome of your surgery. Also, before getting a robotic hair transplant you will meet a surgeon and discuss in depth how you can prepare for the whole process. However, here are some steps for hair transplant preparation: Schedule a transitional haircut Eat a healthy diet full of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to promote faster healing Avoid taking medications that can thin the blood Keep your stress level low by getting plenty of rest Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol
