ARTAS – Robotic Hair Transplant

The ARTAS Solution

The ARTAS Robotic System assists your physician in placing new hair in areas of thinning (miniaturized hair) while protecting your existing, healthy hair. The process results in a restored thickness and volume of hair that both looks and feels natural.

How does your physician identify where the new hair needs to be placed for optimal results?

Your personal recipient site pattern is designed by your physician using the ARTAS Hair Studio technology. Physician-controlled hair angles, hair density, hair distribution and hair direction parameters provide a more natural looking result. The design is then transferred to the ARTAS System for Recipient Site Making.



ARTAS vs. Traditional Hair Transplantations

The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System was created by Restoration Robotics and incorporates the follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant method. The traditional method of the FUE hair transplant procedure was a labor-intensive process that required surgeons to manually dissect hundreds and thousands of hair follicles from the patient’s donor area. The ARTAS Hair Transplant technology was developed by leading researchers and engineers to improve hair growth results and perfect the FUE hair transplant technique. The physician-assisted robotic technology allows surgeons to precisely harvest each hair graft at the exact same consistency and accuracy throughout the entire procedure, eliminating any potential for human error or fatigue. ARTAS Hair Transplant is able to:

  • Use digital imaging and precision robotics to accurately identify and harvest the best follicular hair units for harvesting
  • Calculate the exact depths and angles of the follicular units
  • Track each individual hair graft throughout the entire procedure
  • Create natural site distribution for fuller and thicker results

What is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)?

ARTAS incorporates the follicular unit extraction (FUE) method to transplant healthy hair to the area affected by hair loss. Follicular unit extraction is one of the two most common methods used in hair transplantations. The FUE hair transplant technique utilizes naturally occurring follicular units to promote new hair growth. A follicular unit simply refers to what comes out of a pore. While many think that a single hair grows out of each pore, hair growth actually occurs in follicular groups (or units). Each follicular unit consists of 1 to 4 hair follicles that all come out of the same individual pore.

Previous to FUE hair transplant, 3-4mm hair plugs would be removed from the back of the scalp to replace tissue from the front of the head. This would often result in an unnatural-looking appearance. Since the ARTAS Hair Transplant extracts each individual follicular unit, smaller hair grafts can be used to give hair a more natural-looking appearance with permanent results. The ARTAS Robotic System is currently the only FDA-cleared device used in surgical hair restoration.
