The Process of Hair Restoration Using ARTAS® Technology
What happens to the hair that you currently have within your transplanted area?
The simple answer is nothing. ARTAS Artificial Intelligence™ algorithms are used to avoid damaging existing, healthy hair you currently have. 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.
How does ARTAS® Recipient Site Making work?
Your physician first draws a hairline and other markings directly onto the scalp to delineate the area to be transplanted. Next, photographs are taken of your soon to be transplanted area and, using new software called the ARTAS™ Hair Studio, the images and markings are converted into a digital 3-D model.
Using the software, your physician specifies the angle of hair elevation, direction, site depth, average density, and the total number of the recipient site incisions within your transplant area. The site spacing can then be easily modified within the software to create variations in density in different parts of the scalp.
During site creation, the robot automatically uses its image-guided technology to avoid healthy, existing hairs specified by your physician. The robot creates sites throughout the areas where the hair is finer (miniaturized hair) or the scalp is bald.
It’s with this important feature, the new distribution of sites can be made to complement the distribution of any healthy, existing hair. The hair restoration process takes only one day and you are able to return to work and your life the very next day with just one follow-up visit with the physician who performed the treatment.
