ARTAS Robot Hair Transplant: How Does It Work?

Are you considering robotic hair transplant and wondering, how does it work? ARTAS robotic hair transplant surgery is now the industry’s most sophisticated hair restoration treatment. This method of hair transplant surgery produces the natural, consistent, and clinically confirmed outcomes that you desire. The ARTAS system was created by robotic engineers and hair transplant surgeons. The ARTAS method employs a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) process to transplant hair follicles from an area with plenty of hair to other areas where hair is thinning. This is accomplished by digitally scanning your scalp, then using advanced imaging technology to identify each follicular unit. Each follicular unit is collected rapidly and precisely by the robotic arm, then implanted into recipient locations, resulting in natural-looking hair growth.

What Is the ARTAS System?

ARTAS robotic hair transplant surgery is the most scientifically advanced technology in the field of hair restoration surgery. To enhance manual hair transplant procedures, the device employs image-guided robots and advanced algorithms. With its unrivaled performance and outcomes, physician-assisted technology has transformed the sector. Read on to learn more about how hair transplant works.

How Does Hair Transplant Work?

To transplant healthy hair to the region impacted by hair loss, the ARTAS system uses the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique. To provide new cell regeneration, the FUE hair transplant procedure uses naturally existing follicular units. A follicular unit is the part of the hair that arises from a pore. While many people believe that each pore produces a single follicle, hair develops in follicular units. Every follicular unit is made up of one to four hair follicles that all emerge from the same pore. The ARTAS system removes each follicular unit one by one. Smaller hair transplants give the hair a more natural look.

The Process of ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant Surgery

  • Pre-treatment

During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will discuss your desired results with you and develop a treatment plan tailored to your unique requirements and intended outcomes. Your plastic surgeon should answer all of your questions, especially if you are wondering, “how does a hair transplant work?”

  • Robotic hair transplant surgery: how does the process work?

The region of the scalp that will be utilized for transplantation is shaved so that the ARTAS system can scan it. The doctor anesthetizes the region. The scalp is treated using a skin tensioner so that the system can precisely identify and collect the hair. The ARTAS system analyzes the positioning of every natural group of hair and creates a digital map of the area. The system, under the supervision of the doctor, gathers donor hair in a random pattern to preserve the natural look. The donor area is the region from which healthy hair grafts will be collected for graft extraction during a hair transplant. Hair growth is continuous in this region, which is generally located on the back and sides of the head. The robotic hair transplant surgery process is continued until you have the required amount of hair. The grafts are then placed into the desired regions of the scalp, as directed by your doctor. These grafts become permanent hair when they are transplanted.

  • After the surgery

The majority of patients easily return to their usual activities within 1-2 days. Both the donor and recipient regions of the scalp will likely look the same after a week as they did before the surgery. Most people see a significant improvement six months after the surgery. In many cases, recipients will enjoy natural-looking hair within nine months.
