The Top 12 Common Myths About ARTAS Hair Transplants

Myth: ARTAS Performs the Entire Procedure

Fact: While ARTAS is a cutting-edge robotic technology used in hair transplant procedures, it requires the hair transplant surgeon to direct its function and assistance from the physician lead team to help it work. The ARTAS robot makes the initial incision and dissects the grafts. The technicians are required to carefully remove and inspect the grafts. The ARTAS robot can also be used to make implantation sites and place the grafts.

Myth: ARTAS Guarantees Instant Results

Fact: Hair transplant results, including those assisted by ARTAS, take time to manifest. Patience is crucial as the transplanted hair grows gradually, achieving its final appearance over several months.

Myth: ARTAS is Exclusively for Men

Fact: ARTAS technology is not gender-specific. Both men and women can benefit from hair transplant procedures using ARTAS, addressing various forms of hair loss.

Myth: ARTAS is Only for Younger Individual

Fact: There is no age restriction for ARTAS hair transplants. Older individuals can undergo the procedure if they are in good health, as it does not require general anesthesia.

Myth: ARTAS Leaves Visible Scars

Fact: ARTAS employs precision to minimize scarring. The FUE technique used by ARTAS leaves tiny, almost undetectable scars that are easily concealed by surrounding hair.

Myth: ARTAS Procedures Are Painful

Fact: Modern ARTAS procedures involve local anesthesia, making the experience virtually pain-free. Patients may experience minimal discomfort during the healing process, which is managed with prescribed medications.

Myth: ARTAS is a One-Size-Fits-All Solution

Fact: Each ARTAS hair transplant is customized to meet the specific needs and goals of the individual patient. The technology allows for a personalized and natural-looking result.

Myth: ARTAS Results Look Unnatural

Fact: Advances in ARTAS technology, combined with skilled human artistry, result in natural-looking hairlines. The days of obvious and unnatural hair transplants are long gone.

Myth: ARTAS Doesn’t Work for Certain Hair Types

Fact: ARTAS technology is versatile and effective across various hair types and textures. Skilled professionals can tailor the procedure to suit the unique characteristics of each patient's hair.

Myth: ARTAS Results Require Continuous Maintenance

Fact: Once ARTAS has successfully transplanted hair, it grows naturally and does not demand special maintenance. Regular hair care practices are usually sufficient to maintain the results.

Myth: ARTAS Eliminates the Need for Skilled Professionals

Fact: While ARTAS enhances the precision of certain aspects of the procedure, the expertise of skilled hair restoration physicians remains crucial for a successful and aesthetically pleasing outcome.
