ARTAS ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT
HOW DOES ARTAS HELP?
As a minimally invasive hair transplant method, many patients have turned to the Artas method for hair restoration as it does not require an actual surgical procedure. The Artas robotic hair transplant is able to help patients to improve their overall hair volume, density and allow for increased distribution. The Artas system is known for being highly advanced, as patents are able to utilize digital imaging and AI technology to simulate their results during their initial consultation.
THE AREAS WHERE THE ARTAS TREATMENT SHINES INCLUDE:
Hair Loss or Thinning Hair: The robotic hair transplant procedure is able to remove healthy hair follicles from the donor region and implant them into the scalp, into areas where the patient is balding or their hair is thinning. Ensuring they experience a thicker, fuller head of hair and restored volume and density. Forehead Shape & Size: The Artas treatment is known to provide the added benefits of helping to improve he hairline in the frontal portion of the head. The programming of the Artas device ensures that the robotic hair transplant enhances the aesthetic of the forehead by creating a fuller, more lush hair appearance.
HOW IS ARTAS DIFFERENT FROM CONVENTIONAL HAIR TRANSPLANTS?
The Artas robotic hair transplant is far different from traditional hair transplant methods like the FUE, follicular unit extraction and the FUT, follicular unit transplantation – as it does not require the surgeon or provider to be involved in the actual extraction process or the implantation process! As a result of the precision of the robotic arm, according to many patients this means that the procedure is able to save hair follicles from experiencing unwanted damage, and is able to be done far faster and more effectively. This is similar to the NeoGraft method performed by Dr. V and his team, as it removed much of the human error that is often associated with hair transplants, through the use of an assistive device or artificial intelligence.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THE ARTAS TREATMENT?
The Artas treatment is one of the only FDA-approved hair transplant methods for men with dark, straight hair. As these are the ideal candidates for such a procedure. The best candidate is someone who is seeking to restore areas of baldness, thinning, and/or a receding frontal hairline. Its important to understand that these candidates need to have adequate hair follicles and hair growth for a successful transplantation. This and other transplant procedures aren’t great for individuals with poor hair follicles along their donor sites, or hair loss due to medication/medical treatments, stress or certain other reversible causes of hair loss.
THE RECOVERY PERIOD & RESULTS
For most patients, because the Artas method is minimally invasive, the recovery period is relatively minimal, and patients can begin their recovery period fairly quickly, and should begin to return to their normal daily activities after 3 days, and return to moderate physical activity after about 5-7 days. Normal hair care can be resumed after 10 days. Patients should refrain from strenuous exercise, alcohol, excessive sweating, and swimming for at least one week. When it comes to the results, patients should expect to start seeing results three to four months after treatment, as the grafted hairs may not grow out until this time. The majority of new hair growth will begin five to 12 months following the initial surgical hair restoration.
POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS
Its important to understand that while side effects aren’t as common as certain other hair transplant procedures, they are certainly possible. They might include hemorrhage, infection of grafts, telogen effluvium (thinning or shedding of hair), pruritus, cyst formation, and prolonged swelling. If you experience any of these issues, its important to let your provider know.
