Definiton: ARTAS (Robotic Art Assisted Surgical System) is a specific type of hair transplant procedure that utilizes robotic technology for follicular unit extraction (FUE). During FUE, individual hair follicles are extracted from a donor area on the scalp and transplanted to bald or thinning areas. In ARTAS, a robotic arm assists the surgeon in precisely extracting and placing the follicles, potentially leading to a more efficient and minimally invasive procedure compared to traditional FUE methods.
May offer a less invasive and more precise hair transplant experience compared to manual FUE.
Potentially shorter recovery time due to minimal scarring.
May reduce the risk of human error during the follicle extraction process.
Still a relatively new technology with limited long-term data available.
May be more expensive than traditional FUE procedures.
Requires a skilled surgeon experienced with robotic hair transplant technology.
Strip FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) is another hair transplant technique where a strip of scalp containing hair follicles is removed and transplanted.
Non-surgical hair restoration options as mentioned earlier.
Recovery Time:
Similar to other FUE procedures, ARTAS typically requires a week of recovery with minimal downtime
Disclaimer: ARTAS hair restoration is a specialized procedure. Consulting with a qualified hair transplant surgeon experienced with robotic technology is crucial to understand if it’s the right option and discuss potential risks and benefits.
