RESTORATION ROBOTICS Artas Robotic Hair Transplant System
The ARTAS® robotic hair transplant system starts by using 3D technology to help customize and plan your personalized hairline design. It then uses a high-definition stereoscopic vision system, robotic arm, and ARTAS Artificial Intelligence algorithms to identify and select the best hair follicles for transplanting. These follicles are then intelligently harvested with robotic precision and speed to preserve the natural look of your donor area, meaning no linear scarring. The ARTAS® procedure will also accurately identify and create an optimal recipient site and simultaneously implant the harvested hair follicles*. The minimally invasive process protects your existing healthy hair and maintains a natural appearance in both the donor area and the new implantation area.
check mark NATURAL RESULTS: Noticeably thicker, natural-looking, and permanent hair growth starts around six months with continued growth over time.check mark MINIMALLY INVASIVE WITH NO LINEAR SCAR: The ARTAS® hair restoration system accurately and intelligently harvests and implants individual follicles without the use of scalpels, stitches, or staples, which means no unsightly linear scarring.
check mark FAST AND EFFECTIVE: The robotic method enables greater precision and speed, making the procedure faster than other more manual hair transplant methods.
Although the robot did not meet all expectations it was FDA approved as the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System.
It is fascinating in action, as the patient moves so the robot moves, and as each follicular unit is located, it recalculates the angle, orientation and location of all the hairs on the scalp surface. Using this position and location data, the imaging system guides the robotic arm to the grafts one at a time. The follicular units are then extracted from the scalp and automatically transported to a vial where it is kept moist and cool until implantation.
RESTORATION ROBOTICS Artas Robotic Hair Transplant System is minimal, about a millimeter in diameter, and thus healing times are much shorter. Other potential benefits of robotics in hair transplantation include:
- Less invasive approach
- Speed and efficiency
- Reduced the labor intensity of the procedure
- Reduced cost to the patient
