What is the ARTAS® Robotic System?
Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, is one of the best methods of hair transplant surgery for achieving natural-looking results. By transferring single follicles of hair from the donor site instead of a strip of hair, patients can enjoy a fuller, thicker head of hair with minimal scarring. The ARTAS® Robotic System was designed to further increase the benefits of FUE by digitally mapping both the donor site and the transplant site. After digitizing the scalp and creating a virtual map, Dr. Bernardino Arocha can guide the ARTAS® Robotic System over the donor site. The hair is then harvested in a manner that should leave the donor site looking full and natural. Once a sufficient amount of hair has been harvested, the follicular units can then be placed at the transplant site using calculations of the precise angle and density that can achieve the best possible outcome. FUE with the ARTAS® Robotic System can effectively treat hair loss with permanent results. About nine months after the procedure, patients should be able to cut and style their hair however they choose, with results that look natural even when the hair is kept very short. This method of hair restoration can also greatly minimize visible scarring.
The marriage of state-of-the-art technology with treatments to restore hair has made it possible to do things that were once never thought possible. The ARTAS® system allows Dr. Arocha even greater precision when transplanting individual hairs from the donor site to the areas of thinning hair, while simultaneously eliminating the need for a scalpel, sutures, or staples during treatment, and often leading to a faster recovery when compared with other techniques. In fact, many patients are able to resume normal daily routines in as little as a day or two.
