Robotic hair transplantation and its origins
The high-tech robot Artas comes from the United States. It uses the conventional FUE hair transplant procedure to perform the operation. The robot extracts the hair follicles from the scalp thus replacing human interventions.
Like the traditional FUE manual method, this robotic treatment leaves only micro scars behind the skull. This procedure optimizes the maximum retention of the hair follicles. The robot removing only those being the most suited.
This is possible thanks to an algorithm that calculates in advance the exit angle for each hair. Only the best hair follicles are selected and over 90% of them are used. The robotic arm removes follicular units with precision and speed unmatched by human intervention.
The use of Artas also eliminates eventual human errors during the hair transplantation process. A constant implant quality is therefore offered to the patient throughout the session.
How is the hair transplant done with the Artas robot?
As with manual FUE hair transplantation, local anesthesia is first administered to the patient’s scalp. Then, a tensioner is installed by an assistant at the back of the patient’s skull. The robotic arm is then positioned automatically and scans the scalp in search of viable follicular units.
This process continues until the robot has completed the defined area. The removal of follicles by a robot offers the advantage of avoiding a “harvest” of the donor zone. It also reduces the risk of having hair follicles removed outside the donor area.
The fast and precise operation of the robot arm reduces the treatment time by around 30 to 50%. The procedure takes only one to four and a half hours maximum. The places where the hair follicles are replanted must correspond to a specific distribution.
Only in this way can the hair regrow properly. Artas locates these receptor sites and generates them at exactly the right angle and depth. This allows to always get a good density of transplanted hair.
What are the costs of hair implants made with a robot?
A robotic transplant costs between 4,000 and 8,000 euros in Europe. To give you an idea, the prices of a hair transplant performed in Turkey range from 1,799 to 2999 euros. The price also include accommodation in a four-star hotel, transfer, guarantee and a follow-up.
Hair transplant with or without a robot?
If you opt for a robotic capillary intervention, several factors must be taken into account. First of all it is a recent technique that has yet to be proven. Especially since almost no extensive clinical studies have been done on this method.
There are also many doctors already using the most innovative techniques in the field of hair transplantation. Their experience makes it possible to obtain quality and, above all, natural results. The only difference being the time it takes for a successful transplantation.
Dr. Balwi from Elithairtransplant has already orchestrated thousands of successful hair implants. He is a true specialist in his field and always at your disposal to obtain the best results. With Dr. Balwi you will benefit from the expertise of a hair surgeon that perfectly masters the FUE method.
At Elithairtransplant, only the most recent methods are used. For example, you get the comfort of painless hair transplant anesthesia or innovations like the Percutaneous Sapphire grafts. In addition we give free and detailed advices on the treatment options available to you. Our expertise allows you to always get the best end result.
Conclusion: robotic grafting offers efficiency but not the advice or price
This technological innovation does hold many advantages. Especially because the grafting accuracy is always guaranteed by the Artas robot. In addition, the extraction time of the hair follicles is reduced by 50%.
It is, moreover, almost impossible to damage existing hair during it. The robot eliminates possible human errors and operates with high precision and graft quality. However, the hair transplant with robotic has of course also its high price.
If you are interested in this method of hair implants, you will have to pay from 4,000 to 8,000 euros. It should also be noted that there is virtually no clinical study on working with an Artas robot. The artas robotic procedure for an hair transplant cannot yet fully replace human intervention.
Especially the knowledge, experience and advices of a qualified hair surgeon. Our hair surgery specialist Dr. Balwi has already successfully performed more than 20,000 hair transplants. This experience allows him to work very precisely guarantees a natural and aesthetic graft result.
