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
Hair Restoration Patients
The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant is the world’s first and only robotic hair restoration procedure and it is FDA-approved. It uses a computer-guided system that provides greater precision and accuracy than manual techniques, which means less pain, fewer complications, and minimal downtime while delivering fast, and permanent natural-looking results at the same time. We hope that you now have a better understanding of what the ARTAS robotic hair transplant is, how it works and who it can help. It’s important to remember that every patient has their own unique needs and goals, so we recommend talking with our certified surgeons before getting started on any treatment plan.
