ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration in Austin TX
What would it feel like if you could have your hair back? Some say they feel like a younger version of themselves with a boost of confidence. Imagine looking in the mirror every day and seeing that full head of hair you remember having. There are a variety of hair loss treatments available and at Austin Hair Restoration Clinic, we focus on the ones that will give you the most optimal results based on your needs. Our procedure implements follicular unit extraction and improves on it by adding advanced robotics and artificial intelligence. We’re excited to offer the newest ARTAS® IX Robotic Hair Restoration to our patients, the most advanced generation in robotic hair restoration system. What a device like this provides is precision during the process, the ability to return faster to normal activities, improved overall results, and no large scar! We also support the procedure with additional services that aid in strengthening the existing and new hair growth. We are dedicated to creating a comprehensive treatment protocol giving you the best outcomes for a permanent hair loss solution.
What is Robotic Hair Restoration?
The ARTAS® system takes individual hair follicular units from the back and side of the head. These areas are not impacted by male pattern baldness. These follicles are then transplanted into thinning or balding areas of the anterior scalp, mid-scalp, or crown. By using 3D imaging and mapping, artificial intelligence, and robotic technology, the ARTAS® system perfects this process with the exact same placement every time. Precision matters! As a biomedical robot ARTAS® eliminates human fatigue and human errors associated with other methods.
The ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant System will give you back your natural hair with no scarring and virtually no pain. The results are permanent. This is the optimal hair loss solution.
How Does ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration Work?
Following the restoration plan created by Dr. Dubey and by using the technology of the ARTAS® system, hairs from the donor site are harvested. Then, the ARTAS® system uses advanced digital imaging to analyze each follicular unit using micron accuracy and measuring both the entrance and exit angle. This ensures that each graft is of high quality, which will secure transplant success. The digital mapping in the system provides precise control, far above any manual FUE (follicular unit extraction) techniques.
The harvested hairs are analyzed and sorted by Dr. Dubey and hair technicians. The ARTAS® Recipient Site Mapping technology creates a natural site distribution pattern for the transplanted area. It then uses the 3D head mapping and software algorithms to create a plan for transplantation. This technology ensures that the healthy hairs are identified and not damaged.
The ARTAS® IX has an advanced 3 camera Stereoscopic Vision with 44 micron resolution and a 7-axis robotic arm that accurately identifies and creates optimal recipient sites and simultaneously implants each harvested graft. In addition, Dr. Dubey customizes the hairline design to ensure that the transplanted hair growth patterns will look natural. Unlike a doctor harvesting and transplanting thousands of individual follicles, the ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant System robot arm does not fatigue and provides precision and reproducibility. This ensures transplant success. In four to six months, your transplanted follicles will start growing new hair and give you a natural-looking, lasting hair solution.
How Does the ARTAS Robotic System Compare to Other Hair Loss Treatments?
The ARTAS® system moves healthy, growing hair follicles from the permanent part of the scalp at the back of the head where the follicles are not susceptible to male pattern baldness to balding or thinning areas.
At Austin Hair Restoration Clinic, our ARTAS® system uses FUE technology, but it vastly improves upon manual FUE. Removing and transplanting thousands of individual hair follicles demands precision and accuracy to ensure a successful transplant. Manual FUE has problems with fatigue, which leads to errors in both harvesting and transplantation. This dramatically lowers the success rate of the transplanted follicles. ARTAS® uses robotics and artificial intelligence to remove those factors.
In comparison to the old FUT or strip method, which can be very painful and leaves a long, highly visible scar across the back of the patient’s head, a robotic procedure with ARTAS IX leaves no scar and is virtually painless. Also as with the FUT, breaking the strip of hair into individual follicular units can often damage many of them.
How Does ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration Compare with Other Robotic Machines?
The ARTAS® system has no match for its capabilities and the quality of the hair transplantation it delivers. You may have heard of certain doctors using a motorized handheld device to harvest, store, and transplant the hair follicles. But the only automated part of these systems is the device that punches out and places the follicles. There is no 3D mapping, no system software, no AI to designate the best follicles for harvesting — all other aspects of these systems are still manually done by the doctor. Again, as with other systems, this leads to the loss of many potentially transplanted follicles.
What Results Can I Expect from ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration?
At first your transplanted follicles go into dormant stage. This can be disconcerting, but it is simply the normal process of the hair growth cycle. Within four to six months, these follicles will begin returning to the anagen/growth phase of the hair cycle, and you’ll notice new hair growth across your transplanted areas!
Precision matters. The Artas system eliminates the fatigue, linear scarring and human errors associated with other methods.
The ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant System will give you back natural hair with no scarring and virtually no pain. The results are incredible.
At Austin Hair Restoration, we feel the ARTAS® Robotic system delivers the best solution for hair loss.
What is the Recovery Time with the ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration System?
Unlike strip transplantation, there is no long, painful incision that needs to heal. There is only a little bit of time necessary to let both your donor and transplanted areas calm down. This takes just a day or two. Patients can then return to work and their normal activities. We’ll give you instructions on washing your hair, but it is usually OK after just three days.
What are the Risks and Side Effects with the ARTAS System?
Because there isn’t a long incision, and because the ARTAS® system is automated and precise, these are very low risk procedures. There is a slight risk of infection on the donor area where the follicles were harvested, but all it takes it a little attention to keep things clean. These are successful, easy to take procedures that our patients at Austin Hair Restoration Clinic love.
