We are lucky enough to live in a world where technology seemingly has no limits, especially in the cosmetic realm. The ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration System proves just how dramatically cosmetic enhancement technology has evolved in the last decade. Thanks to ARTAS, it is now possible to robotically remove individual hair follicles from the back of the head and transplant them into thinning and balding areas of the scalp. Countless men- and women, too!- are eager to take advantage of this sophisticated system in order to permanently resolve embarrassing and unwanted hair loss. If you can count yourself among these men and women, you are probably hoping to find answers to the following questions.
The ARTAS Robotic System is considered a minimally invasive hair restoration solution. First, advanced 3D technology stimulates your hair transplant design to determine exactly how many grafts will be required to achieve optimal results. The robotic system then evaluates which hairs on your head will make the best donor hairs for transplantation. Once they have been identified, your surgeon guides the robotic technology to harvest donor hairs and transplant them into the right place.
The most meaningful difference between ARTAS and older systems is that the ARTAS procedure does not require a band of tissue to be removed from the back or side of the head. This means that you will not be left with a linear scar and the need for stitches or staples to close the wound. Additionally, this state-of-the-art system ensures precise results by eliminating the guesswork and fatigue involved in manual transplant procedures.
You will receive a local anesthetic before your ARTAS procedure, so you will feel virtually no pain at all. The most common side effect of this treatment is post-procedure swelling and minor discomfort that subsides in a day or two. As soon as your procedure is over, you can return to your normal activities without any hesitation!
How Quickly Will I See Results?
The majority of ARTAS patients at Landon Plastic Surgery notice dramatic hair growth within six months of transplantation. These results become even more noticeable after nine and twelve months. Best of all, since the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant uses your own permanent growing hair, your results are permanent as well! The new hair that grows is not susceptible to the conditions that caused your original hair loss, so your transplanted hair will last a lifetime.
