Frequently Asked Questions: The ARTAS ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT SYSTEM® Robotic Hair Transplant

How does hair transplantation with the ARTAS ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT SYSTEM System work?

Under control of your experienced physician, the ARTAS ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT SYSTEM System uses its robotic arm and state of the art digital imaging to extract follicular units. Its sophisticated software algorithm digitally identifies each hair follicle, to collect the best possible units in a random pattern to ensure virtually scarless healing. Then, a very small needle removes the individual follicular unit to be skillfully implanted into the recipient area resulting in a completely natural-looking hair re-growth.

Will people know I have had a hair restoration procedure?

With the ARTAS ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT SYSTEM Robotic Hair Transplant, unlike with older types of hair transplantation technologies, there are absolutely no linear scars. Your new hair grows gradually, in a normal growth cycle, reducing the chance that people will notice the procedure. Your friends and family will comment that you look better, but the results from your hair transplant are subtle and natural.

When will my new hair start to grow?

The procedure is minimally invasive so the transplanted follicular units heal very quickly. Once the implanted hair develops its own blood supply, transplanted hair will grow in a natural growth cycle. New hair growth is usually seen within about three months after the transplant, and will continue to come in over the course of a year. Which is approximately how long a full growth cycle takes.

Are ARTAS ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT SYSTEM® Procedure hair transplant results permanent?

The ARTAS ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT SYSTEM Procedure transplants permanent hair, typically from the back of the head, to thinning areas of the scalp. As this hair is not susceptible to conditions that cause male pattern baldness (DHT), transplanted hair can last a lifetime. We proudly stand by these results as the only PERMANENT solution to hair loss. There are absolutely no side effects or special care that needs to be taken in order for hair growth to continue.

How long does the ARTAS ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT SYSTEM Procedure take?

The ARTAS ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT SYSTEM Procedure usually takes from four to eight hours depending on the size of work area to achieve optimal hair restoration goals. You are always comfortably seated during the process, and the staff is always with you to maximize your comfort throughout the entire procedure.

How long will the healing time take?

Recovery time with the ARTAS ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT SYSTEM is less than with most surgical cosmetic procedures due to absence of linear incisions. Healing time is short, and you can usually go back to your daily activities after a day or two. It takes approximately three days for the transplanted hair to “take” and for growth cells to be transferred from the follicles to the scalp. Once healed, the implanted hairs will form a scab which can be gently rubbed off, after which your appearance returns to complete usual.

Does the ARTAS ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT SYSTEM hair transplant procedure hurt?

The ARTAS ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT SYSTEM Procedure, an outpatient procedure performed in the doctor’s office, requires only a local anesthetic. Once the local anesthesia begins to work, the patient feels no pain. Our own know-how prevents most post-procedure swelling which removes any discomfort that can last for three to four days after other procedures.

How much does the robotic procedure cost?

The simple answer is: “It depends on how much hair will be transplanted” However, when compared to the old style, the robotic procedure provides the best ROI. Additionally, we also provide a variety of interest free financing options.

Will there be visible scarring in the donor area?

Because the ARTAS ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT SYSTEM Robotic System selectively harvests individual hair groupings rather than removing a large area of scalp requiring sutures, there is minimal scarring in the donor area. Hair can be worn fashionably short, or in longer styles, whatever you prefer. You’re not limited by having to cover scarring from strip surgery.
