You have gone through all the trouble of losing your hair, and you want to do something to get it back. You have been considering hair transplant surgery, but the thought of going through that seems a little overwhelming. Think again, because the ARTAS robotic hair transplant system is a revolutionary treatment, and it could work for you!
Introducing the ARTAS Robot
An alternative to follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) is a process known as follicular unit extraction (FUE). Like the FUSS technique, the FUE approach removes hair from the back of the head, but it does not take a strip out and leave a linear scar. Rather, it randomly takes follicles from different areas to avoid leaving the linear scar. This is a strategic process, and a doctor can sometimes slice up good follicles on accident: a problem known as transection.
Today, hair transplant surgery using the FUE technique has been brought to a whole new level with the introduction of the ARTAS robotic hair transplant system. The ARTAS robot is able to extract hair for the FUE technique far more precisely than a doctor. Plus, the process goes much quicker with far less mistakes; thus, preserving more of the grafts for transplanting to the top of the scalp. Prior to the introduction of the ARTAS robot, extracting hair follicles could take numerous hours and multiple sessions. Needless to say, ARTAS does not need to inconvenience you like that.
Customize Your Look
Before the grafts are transplanted to the top of the scalp, you and the surgeon can use the 3D imaging software that comes with the ARTAS robot to determine what kind of transplant pattern you want. From here, you can get some idea of what the result will look like on your own head. This makes the outcome customizable.
With the ARTAS robotic hair transplant system, you could once again enjoy a full head of hair. If you’re interested in this hair restoration treatment, make an appointment at Precision MD in Elk Grove. Contact us today to book your consultation and get started!
