Guide to ARTAS Hair Transplants

What is an ARTAS Hair Transplant?

The ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant System is an advanced and FDA-cleared technology that offers a groundbreaking approach to hair restoration. Unlike traditional hair transplant methods, such as strip surgery, ARTAS® utilizes a physician-assisted robotic system to provide a minimally invasive and virtually pain-free procedure. The system employs intelligent algorithms to analyze and track each hair, preserving the natural look of the donor area without leaving a linear scar.

By eliminating the need for stitches, plugs, and painful recovery, ARTAS® ensures a faster and more comfortable experience for patients. The robotic harvesting and recipient site-making processes are precise and consistent, delivering high-quality grafts while avoiding damage to existing healthy hair.

This innovative technology overcomes the limitations and side effects associated with manual methods, providing patients with natural-looking and permanent results. ARTAS® not only revolutionizes the hair transplant process but also enhances the overall patient experience by offering a virtually undetectable and efficient solution.

NeoGraft vs ARTAS

When considering hair restoration options, discerning between NeoGraft and ARTAS is crucial. NeoGraft and ARTAS, both utilizing the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method, present distinct approaches to hair transplantation. NeoGraft relies on manual harvesting, where skilled technicians manually extract hair follicles from the donor area, allowing for an artistic and hands-on touch. In contrast, ARTAS employs a computer-controlled robotic arm for automated harvesting, ensuring precision, accuracy, and reproducibility in the extraction process.

While NeoGraft prioritizes the expertise of a human touch, ARTAS emphasizes efficiency with a computer determining the follicles to extract. The choice between these methods often comes down to individual preferences, with some favoring NeoGraft for its manual and artistic approach, while others opt for the efficiency and precision offered by ARTAS's robotic system. Ultimately, consulting with Dr. Steffes is crucial to determine the most suitable method based on individual goals and requirements for achieving optimal and natural-looking results in hair restoration.


Common ARTAS Hair Transplant Myths Debunked

Misinformation can deter potential candidates from getting help from the ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration. Below are common myths surrounding ARTAS debunked, assuring you the procedure is virtually pain-free, leaves no visible scars, and delivers entirely natural-looking results. Say goodbye to misconceptions and embrace the transformative potential of ARTAS.

Are ARTAS Hair Transplants Painful?

ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplants are designed to be virtually pain-free. Local anesthesia is administered during the procedure, ensuring that patients are comfortable throughout. The misconception likely stems from outdated perceptions of traditional, more invasive hair transplant methods.

Does ARTAS Leave Visible Scars?

Unlike traditional methods that often result in a linear scar, ARTAS leaves no visible scars. The robotic precision employed in harvesting and implanting hair follicles ensures minimal disruption to the scalp, offering a seamless and scar-free outcome.

Do ARTAS Results Look Artificial?

The sophisticated technology and intelligent algorithms of ARTAS contribute to natural-looking results. Each hair follicle is carefully selected and placed, avoiding the artificial appearance associated with older techniques. The myth likely arises from outdated perceptions of the aesthetic outcomes of hair transplants.

Can Anyone Undergo ARTAS Regardless of Hair Type?

While ARTAS is a versatile technology, the success of the procedure depends on having a suitable donor area with healthy hair follicles. Not everyone may qualify as a candidate, and the misconception may arise from a lack of understanding of the importance of a viable donor area.

Does Recovery from ARTAS Take a Long Time?

ARTAS procedures typically involve minimal downtime. Patients can often return to their regular activities within a week. This misconception may stem from older, more invasive hair transplant methods that had longer recovery periods. Advanced technology has significantly reduced post-procedural downtime.


Am I the Right Candidate for ARTAS Hair Transplant?

Determining candidacy for ARTAS involves several factors. If you have a healthy donor area, overall good health, and specific aesthetic goals related to your hairline, you might be an ideal candidate. Our experienced team will guide you through the evaluation process to ensure ARTAS is the right choice for your unique needs.
