ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant
It’s not an exaggeration to call the ARTAS® procedure an absolute revolution in hair restoration. The ARTAS® system is a computer-assisted, Health Canada and FDA-approved, robotic device that offers the most advanced method of follicular unit extraction (FUE) possible today. This FUE method is scalpel-free and means no linear scar. It also minimizes follicle “shock”, so that a greater number of healthy, intact follicles are more likely to survive.
About The Procedure
Our skilled surgeons use a computer-assisted, image-guided robotic arm to harvest healthy hair from the donor area in the back of the head – a place where hair follicles are genetically resistant to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is the leading cause of hair loss in men.
With enhanced precision, this robotic technology delicately incises and extracts individual hair follicles with a precision punch and an air suction unit one follicle at a time. Robots are proven to extend human capability and performance in three key areas: precision, control and reproducibility.
The ARTAS® system uses a sophisticated three-dimensional digital imaging and mapping technique to assist physicians in selecting and harvesting individual follicular units. This results in healthy grafts with low transection rates.
Harvesting in the donor area does not look irregular or unbalanced due to a unique robotic algorithm. Advanced digital imaging technology scans, tracks, and grades each hair, allowing thousands of follicular units to be harvested in a single procedure. This results in quality grafts that enhance transplant survival rates.
After the follicles have been harvested the surgical assistants prepare individual grafts for placement. Your doctor begins transplanting the carefully prepared graphs while maintaining artistic control over the design, implantation angles, direction and patterns, which affect the aesthetic appearance and naturalness of the result.
