Step 1

The high definition stereoscopic vision system utilizes ARTAS Artificial Intelligence™ algorithms to identify and select the best hair follicles for harvesting.
Step 2

Hair is intelligently harvested with robotic precision to preserve the natural look of your donor area. The ARTAS System provides robotic speed and accuracy unmatched by hand-held techniques.
Step 3

A customized hairline is designed with the ARTAS System’s Recipient Site Making technology under physician supervision. This creates optimal site distribution for harvested hair follicles that avoids damaging healthy hair.
Step 4*

Your hair is then transplanted robotically or manually into the thinning areas.
Step 5**

Noticeably thicker, natural-looking and permanent hair growth starts around six months with continued growth over time.

WHAT ARE YOUR TREATMENT OPTIONS

Hair restoration requires precise, tedious, monotonous movements thousands of times for a single procedure. It’s important to research your options, currently there are three main procedure methods for hair transplant:

  • ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration Procedure
    • Minimally Invasive Hair Restoration Solution
    • Leverages Digital Imaging and Robotic Precision to Harvest Healthy Grafts
    • No Need for the Surgical Removal of a Band of Tissue From the Back and Sides of Head
    • No Linear Scar, No Need for Stitches or Staples to Close the Wound
    • Minimal Recovery Time and the Ability to Return to Normal Activities

  • Manual FUE
    • Physician Uses Hand-Held Tools to Manually Punch Out Hair Grafts
    • Relies Heavily on Physician or Technician’s Hand-Eye Coordination and Their Ability to Remove Thousands of Grafts
    • Tedious and Extremely Demanding

  • Strip Surgery or Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)
    • Physician Makes a Large Incision on the Back of the Head to Remove a 6 to 10 inches Strip of the Scalp
    • Clinicians Remove Hair Follicles From the Strip and Implant in Balding Area
    • Strip Surgery Leaves a Permanent Linear Scar Which is Visible Long After Surgery
    • Patients Often Experience Lingering Scalp Numbness, Tingling, Tightness and Pain
    • Side Effects May Include: Numbness and Tingling, Scalp Tightness or Lingering Pain
