ARTAS Robotic FUE Hair Transplant

As a nation-wide leader in hair restoration technology, we were one of a select few to first introduce the ARTAS Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) robotic system. Thanks to our early involvement, all of our physicians are trained and certified by Restoration Robotics (the firm that developed the ARTAS system). We chose the ARTAS system over other offerings because it is the most sophisticated follicular unit extraction FUE device available today. We find it to be superior when it comes to providing unparalleled accuracy and precision, thanks to several advanced algorithms, which eliminate the human error associated with manual hand-held FUE methods.

Sophisticated and Safe Follicular Unit Extraction

The procedure has many advantages over previous methods. Your physician’s goal is to help you restore your hair and obtain the outcome you discussed during your consultation with as little disruption as possible to your daily routine. Robotic Transplant Benefits:

  1. Lack of Scarring: ARTAS leaves no linear scar, which can be associated with other forms of transplant.
  2. Precision and Reproducibility: ARTAS identifies and selects the optimal hairs to be harvested while preventing over harvesting.
  3. Minimal Pain: The procedure itself is virtually pain-free, and post-op pain is minimal.
  4. Shorter Procedure: ARTAS is the fastest follicular unit extraction procedure available.

ARTAS Robotic FUE Frequently Asked Questions

How does the ARTAS Robotic FUE Procedure work?

The ARTAS Robotic FUE Procedure is a minimally invasive hair transplantation solution that leverages digital imaging and precision robotics to harvest healthy grafts for transplantation. Unlike the earlier methods of hair transplantation, there is no need for the surgical removal of a strip of scalp from the back and sides of the head, no linear scar left after your procedure and no need for stitches or staples to close the wound.

The benefit is a quick recovery time and the ability to return to normal activities and work sooner.

Should I cut my hair before the treatment?

Yes. Trimming your hair in the donor area allows the ARTAS Robotic FUE System to accurately visualize, track, and harvest each grouping of hairs. You will receive instructions on having your hair cut shorter in preparation for your ARTAS Robotic FUE Procedure.

How will my hair look after the ARTAS Robotic FUE Procedure?

The ARTAS Robotic FUE Procedure provides extremely natural-looking results. After the procedure, you are able to wear your hair any length or style with confidence.

How is the ARTAS Robotic FUE Procedure different than "Hair Plugs"?

Old-fashioned “hair plugs” included the harvesting of large patches of hair that resulted in an awkward and unnatural appearance once implanted. In the ARTAS Robotic FUE Procedure, hairs are harvested in their natural groupings and then transplanted individually by your physician.

Individual transplantation provides you with the look you desire, including a great looking hairline and a fuller head of hair.

Are ARTAS Robotic FUE Procedure hair transplant results permanent?

Yes. The ARTAS Robotic FUE Procedure uses your own permanent growing hair, typically from the back of your head. Your physician then implants this hair to the thinning areas of your scalp. Because this hair is not susceptible to the conditions that cause male-pattern baldness, transplanted hair will last a lifetime.

How long does it take to recover and heal?

Recovery time with the ARTAS Robotic FUE Procedure is less than with most surgical cosmetic procedures. Because no scalpel incisions or stitches are required with the ARTAS Robotic FUE Procedure, healing time is short, and you can usually go back to your daily activities after a day or two.

Some doctors schedule a follow-up visit the morning after the procedure to examine your scalp and to teach you how to take care of your newly implanted hair.

When will my hair start to grow?

Transplanted hair grows naturally in phases. Hair growth typically begins around the third and fourth month after your procedure. The majority of hair growth usually occurs between five and eight months following your procedure, with the remainder of growth between eight and 12 months.

Will people know I have had a hair transplant procedure?

With the ARTAS Robotic FUE Procedure, any scarring is minimal and is nearly undetectable. Your new hair grows in gradually, reducing the chance that people will notice the procedure. Your friends and family will comment that you look better, but the results from your hair transplant are subtle and natural.

Does the ARTAS Robotic FUE Procedure hurt?

The ARTAS Robotic FUE Procedure, an outpatient procedure performed in the physician’s office, requires only a local anesthetic. You will feel virtually no pain. Some patients can experience minor discomfort and swelling post-procedure, which subsides in one to three days.

Will there be visible scarring in the donor area?

Because the ARTAS Robotic FUE System selectively harvests individual hair groupings rather than removing a large area of scalp requiring sutures, there is minimal scarring in the donor area.

Hair can be worn fashionably short, or in longer styles, whatever you prefer. You are not limited by having to cover scarring from strip surgery

What is the price of the ARTAS Robotic FUE Procedure?

Treatment costs will be determined during your consultation with your physician and depend on the amount of new hair that you desire. Discuss the procedure pricing with your physician, as some physicians may offer payment options.
