ARTAS® Robotic Hair Restoration in San Diego
Hair loss can be a distressing experience and adversely affect self-esteem and confidence. Fortunately, scientific advancements have led to an innovative hair restoration procedure called ARTAS® robotic hair restoration.
This state-of-the-art robotic hair transplant technology offers a minimally invasive, precise, and natural-looking solution for individuals seeking to regain a full head of hair.
Dr. Roy David is a double board-certified plastic surgeon offering ARTAS® robotic hair restoration at Pacific Hair Center in San Diego, California.
What Is ARTAS® Robotic Hair Restoration?
ARTAS® robotic hair restoration is an FDA-approved, advanced hair transplant procedure that uses robotic technology to assist surgeons in harvesting and transplanting hair follicles.
This revolutionary approach to hair restoration is designed to create natural, permanent results with minimal discomfort and downtime by combining the precision of a robot with the skill and expertise of a trained surgeon like Dr. David.
What Are the Benefits of ARTAS®?
Natural results: ARTAS® produces natural-looking, permanent results that blend seamlessly with the patient’s existing hair.
Precision: The ARTAS® robot’s precision minimizes the risk of damage to surrounding hair follicles and ensures natural-looking results. Because this is a robotic technology, it nearly eliminates potential human error, allowing for more predictable results.
Minimally invasive: The FUE technique used in ARTAS® requires no linear incision and leaves no linear scar, making it an attractive option for those concerned about scarring.
Quick recovery and minimal downtime: The minimally invasive nature of ARTAS® means patients typically experience less discomfort and can return to work and other routine activities within days.
Personalized design: Surgeons work closely with patients to create a customized hairline design that meets their aesthetic goals.
How Does ARTAS® Robotic Hair Restoration Work
Before the Hair Transplant Procedure
The first step of this revolutionary hair restoration procedure is your in-depth consultation. Dr. David will assess your hair loss pattern, discuss your aesthetic goals, and determine whether you are a suitable candidate for ARTAS® robotic hair restoration.
When preparing for the procedure, you can expect the following:
- Personalized treatment plan: A detailed plan is created using advanced digital imaging technology. The ARTAS® system scans and maps your scalp, identifying healthy donor hair follicles and calculating the optimal number needed for transplantation.
- Hairline Design: The surgeon works with you to design a natural-looking hairline, considering factors like hair direction, density, and age-appropriate placement.
During the ARTAS® Procedure
If the ARTAS® system is right for you and you choose to move forward, you can expect the following:
Anesthesia: A local anesthetic is administered to numb the treatment area and minimize discomfort.
Robotic follicle harvesting: The ARTAS® automated system is programmed to select and harvest individual hair follicles from the donor area (typically the back or sides of the scalp). The robot’s precision ensures that only healthy, viable follicles are selected for transplantation, leaving surrounding areas unaffected.
Follicular unit extraction (FUE): ARTAS® uses the follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique, which involves extracting hair follicles individually. This minimally invasive method eliminates the need for a linear incision (as seen in traditional hair transplant procedures) and leaves no visible linear scar.
Graft placement: The harvested hair follicles are meticulously transplanted into the recipient area (the bald or thinning regions). The ARTAS® system assists in creating tiny, precise incisions for graft placement, ensuring a natural distribution.
ARTAS® Robotic Hair Restoration Recovery
Following the procedure, you will receive postoperative care instructions, including guidelines for cleansing the scalp, managing discomfort, and protecting the newly transplanted hair. Most patients can resume normal activities within a few days.
Permanent Hair Restoration Results
Your new hair will continue to grow for long-lasting, permanent results because these healthy, transplanted follicles maintain the qualities of their donor site and are not vulnerable to male pattern baldness. You can now have a fuller head of hair that looks natural because it is.
