Robotic Hair Transplants - The ARTAS Procedure
Dr. Jacque LeBeau is now using the very latest technology in hair restoration. Feel years younger with the ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant. Advanced technology provides permanent, natural-looking results without the plugs, pain, and stitches associated with traditional hair transplants. This minimally invasive procedure does not leave a linear scar, so you have the freedom to cut and style your hair any way you wish.
This interactive, computer assisted equipment employs image guidance to enhance the quality of hair follicle harvesting. ARTAS is the first hair transplant robot to improve the most challenging aspects of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). It received clearance from the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for use in April 2011.
This physician-controlled, state-of-the-art system enables the harvesting of hair follicles during hair restoration procedures. It offers numerous beneficial features, including an image-guided robotic arm, special imaging technologies, small dermal punches and a computer interface. The ARTAS System is capable of identifying and harvesting individual follicular units to implement the FUE technique. The device, guided by cameras and 3-D imaging software, can perform the dissection of hair follicles individually at a rate of up to 1,000 per hour.
What is the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System?
The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant brings a new level of precision and accuracy to hair transplantation. Each hair is removed and transplanted individually, to provide you with natural looking results. The procedure is minimally invasive and requires no stitches. A major difference to older traditional hair transplantation is the fact that there is no risk of the tell-tale linear scar that’s associated with older transplant methods.
