ARTAS robotic hair transplant is a hair restoration treatment that uses robotic technology to precisely harvest healthy grafts for hair transplantation. The technique is minimally-invasive and does not require removing a strip of tissue from the back or side of your head. That means there is no linear scar nor staples or stitches needed following your procedure. These frequently asked questions will help better inform you about ARTAS so you can decide if is right for you.
Are the Results From ARTAS Permanent?
ARTAS robotic hair transplant uses your natural hair to treat thinning areas of your scalp. The hair is normally harvested from the back of your head and is not susceptible to the impact of male pattern baldness. Your results will be both permanent and have a natural aesthetic.
Will I Have Visible Post-Op Scarring?
The unique harvest method used by ARTAS means concerns of traditional hair transplant procedures such as strip scarring, incisions, and stitches are avoided. Individual hair groupings are harvested, so any scarring is virtually undetectable. You will be able to wear short or long hairstyles without the concern of covering a large linear scar.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
The average ARTAS robotic hair transplant takes between five to seven hours. The length of your treatment will be determined by the restoration goals you have.
How Does ARTAS Compare to Hair Plugs?
Hair plugs are notorious for results that are sometimes awkward and unnatural. They utilize large patches of grafted hair. That is in stark contrast to the technique used by ARTAS, in which hair is grafted in its natural groupings and then individually placed. Individual placement allows for fuller hair, a more precise hairline, and more natural results.
How Long Does the Recovery Take?
The recovery time needed following ARTAS is less than many other surgical transplant options because it does not require a surgical incision or stitches.
How Long Will It Take for My New Hair to Grow?
Your transplanted hair will ultimately grow in the same natural phases as the rest of your hair. New hair will be visible within months.
Will People Be Able to Tell I Have Had a Hair Transplant?
Your transplanted hair will grow in naturally and gradually over time and scarring is minimal, so it is unlikely most people will notice you have had a treatment.
