Your Transplant Area
The transplant area is the location on your head where your donor hair will be transplanted. Your physician will develop an aesthetic design using the ARTAS Hair Studio® Technology based on your goals, hair type and your facial features. Your new hairline will be created and thinning areas will look fuller, thicker and more even.
The ARTAS® Robotic System uses advanced digital imaging to provide accurate mapping and calculations of critical hair follicle characteristics to determine your best hairs for harvesting. ARTAS Hair Studio will deliver your aesthetic design to the ARTAS System for Recipient Site Making and your clinician will transplant each hair individually, providing natural-looking results.
Natural, Permanent Hair Growth
After a few months, the transplanted hair will begin to grow in its new location. Your newly transplanted hair, like the rest of your hair, grows steadily over time. Around six months, you will start to notice significant growth. The hair will continue to grow in the treated balding areas over the coming months.
Protect Your Healthy Hair
- Recipient Site Making avoids damaging your existing healthy (terminal) hair using a series of algorithms that evaluate many hair characteristics.
- It is critical to identify both existing healthy (terminal) hair as well as miniaturized (vellus) hair in order to create the best possible Recipient Site Making outcome. The ARTAS System identifies and avoids damaging healthy hair resulting in providing you the best aesthetic outcome.
- It is also important to identify vellus hair in order to fill in balding areas and preserve areas that currently have healthy hair.
Your Hair. Your Style
Follow your clinician’s instructions on how to shampoo and care for your hair. Your newly transplanted hair, like the rest of your hair, grows steadily over time. After a few months, you will begin to see new hair growth. Around six months, you will start to notice significant growth.
Your hair will continue to grow in the treated areas over time. You will be able to treat your newly transplanted, permanent hair just like the rest of your hair and can style your new hair in any way you choose.
Virtually Pain Free
Many patients report little to no post-procedure pain. Your doctor may recommend some over-the-counter ibuprofen or acetaminophen (Tylenol®) for temporary discomfort. The minimally invasive ARTAS Procedure will allow you to recover quickly, unlike older, traditional methods. You will be typically back to your regular activities in a few days.
