Hair transplant procedures are among the most effective treatment options for a variety of hair loss conditions. For patients with pattern baldness, transplant procedures relocate healthy hair from the rear or sides of the scalp to the area that shows signs of balding. Generally, the procedure produces naturally growing hair that effectively masks areas of baldness in a natural-looking manner. It is estimated that several million individuals are candidates for transplant procedures, yet a vast number of those individuals opt for less effective alternative treatments.
According to hair surgeons, a combination of misguided fear and misinformation create several hurdles that ultimately dissuade prospective patients from considering a transplant. One of the most common hurdles is the misconception that hair transplants are painful, embarrassing, and exceedingly disruptive to everyday life. Recovery time is another concern; because the procedure is a 'transplant', many candidates assume that a prolonged recovery period is needed prior to resuming a normal lifestyle. For those who were young adults in the 1980s, the biggest concern is that the end result will look like unnatural "hair plugs".
The ARTAS system addresses each of these concerns and more, providing a safe and minimally invasive transplant that produces beautiful, natural-looking results.
"Using high-resolution digital imaging and laser-guided robotics, the ARTAS system enables our team to harvest individual hair groupings [follicular units] without removing a linear strip of tissue from the scalp," explains Dr. Paul Rose, lead surgeon at the Hair Transplant Institute. "As a result, the procedure is more comfortable, recovery time is faster, and the end-result is incredibly natural in appearance.”
A recognized leader in the field of hair restoration, Dr. Rose carries more than 20 years experience in the study and practice of hair restoration and transplantation. His expertise and achievement are best reflected by two extraordinary awards: The ISHRS Golden Follicle (2008) and the Italian Society of Hair Restoration Michelangelo Award (2002). Dr. Rose is co-creator of the Follicular Isolation Technique (FIT), an advanced method of hair transplantation in which the surgeon manually harvests individual hairs (follicular units) with a minimally invasive instrument. Today, Dr. Rose is excited to augment his expertise with ARTAS technology, the world’s only physician-guided robotic system for minimally invasive FUE hair transplant procedures.
If enhanced comfort, precision, consistency, and accuracy are not enough, the ARTAS system offers a number of additional advantages for individuals suffering with hair loss. For those who are unsatisfied with a previous hair transplant, the ARTAS system may provide a superior follow-up FUE procedure that arranges hair follicles in a more natural fashion. The ARTAS system is highly effective in masking the appearance of donor scars as well, enabling the surgeon to strategically transplant hair follicles within the scarred tissue to drastically minimize its appearance.
