The decision to have a hair restoration procedure can be a life-altering one. Detailed information about the Artas robotic procedure will help a person determine if it is the appropriate choice for them.
The Artas iX from Restoration Robotics harvests hair follicles from the scalp in men diagnosed with androgenic alopecia (male pattern hair loss) who have brown or black straight hair.
Vinings Surgery Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove, provides Artas robotic hair restoration to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
Highlights of Artas Robotic Hair Transplant
- Minimally invasive solution for hair restoration
- Uses digital imaging and robotic precision to harvest healthy grafts
- No need for the surgical removal of a band of tissue from the sides and back of the head
- No linear scar, no need for sutures or staples to seal the wound
- Minimal recovery time and the ability to resume normal activities
Features of Artas Robotic Hair Restoration
Male pattern baldness impacts as many as 85 percent males by the age of 50 years. One-fourth may experience thinning before their 21st birthday. Male pattern hair loss is a common issue and one that millions of men seek a solution for. The minimally-invasive Artas robotic system offers unforeseen hair restoration to many men experiencing this condition.
Some key features of Artas robotic hair restoration are as follows:
- Real-time 3D analysis, which offers correct mapping and calculations of critical hair follicle characteristics necessary for effective graft harvesting
- Monitors and updates parameters of every graft 60 times per second
- The high definition stereoscopic vision system uses Artas artificial intelligence algorithms to identify and choose the best hair follicles for harvesting
- Recipient site making and implantation: Intelligently and precisely prevents damage to pre-existing healthy hairs
- Develops optimal recipient sites and simultaneously implants every graft
If the patient experiences pain after the procedure, the doctor may prescribe Tylenol (Acetaminophen).
Donor Area Appearance (Post-Procedure)
- Retains a natural appearance, with no linear scar
- Freedom to wear any hairstyle that the patient desires
- Ability to resume work and normal activities in a few days
- A majority of patients sleep comfortably with no pain in the donor site
How does the Robotic FUE work?
The Artas robotic system automates two important steps in an FUE hair transplant:
- Follicular unit graft harvesting
- Recipient site creation
The automation of these two steps allows surgeons to undertake FUE with unprecedented precision and consistency and allows for the maximum preservation of follicles.
Robotic hair transplants offer the same benefits as manual FUE procedures over traditional hair transplants. There are no linear scars and post-operative restrictions on physical activity. Additionally, the Artas robot eliminates the chances of human error.
The robot’s optical 3-D guidance system and dual punch mechanism initially locates and subsequently extracts follicular units according to specifications programmed by the doctor. They perform this task hundreds to thousands of times each session with consistency and accuracy, which is not possible to duplicate with the human hand.
They also develop recipient sites, where follicular unit grafts are placed, depending on the cosmetic plan designed by the doctor and programmed into the robot.
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove receives patients from Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and nearby areas for Artas robotic hair transplant treatment.
Vinings Surgery Center is taking patients from Greater Atlanta Georgia, Buckhead, Marietta, Roswell, Dunwoody and surrounding areas.
