ARTAS Hair Transplant

ARTAS is a technologically advanced procedure and system designed to make the hair transplant process as seamless as possible. At its simplest, ARTAS takes Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method of hair transplantation to the next level. The ARTAS System combines a computer, robotic arm, imaging technology, and software, to create an automated FUE procedure. The makers of ARTAS believe that the digital capabilities of their system work to the patients’ advantage, with extreme precision and minimal incisions.

The ARTAS System uses imaging technology to locate donor hair. It can remove between 750 and 1,000 hair follicles per hour, speeding up the hair transplant process tremendously. A certified hair transplant surgeon then manually re-locates them to a patient’s scalp in a pattern that follows their natural hair growth. The combination of advanced computer technology and an artful expert’s eye gives ARTAS the best of both worlds.
