Designed with the Patient in Mind
For many years, balding patients have been searching for a minimally invasive and virtually pain-free procedure to restore their natural hair. Patients feared artificial-looking, obvious results. Even now, older and more traditional hair transplant procedures are invasive, requiring stitches with prolonged and painful recovery. These procedures leave patients with an obvious linear scar, often requiring a longer hairstyle to conceal. Side effects may include residual and lasting scalp tightness, and potential nerve injury in the donor area.
There are other manual handheld methods that depend entirely on human eye-hand coordination. One of the many risks include human error and a high degree of human fatigue. Visualization of the treatment area is limited to what can be interpreted by magnification glasses. This repetitive manual task loses consistency and quality over time.
The ARTAS Look
The ARTAS® Robotic System was designed with you, the patient, in mind. Developed with leading hair transplant physicians and researchers, this state-of-the-art robotic technology was created to eliminate the guesswork and fatigue associated with manual handheld methods, along with the scarring, complications and downtime of existing invasive surgical techniques.
With the ARTAS® Robotic Procedure, no long incisions or stitches are required, rendering your hair transplant procedure virtually undetectable. Overcome the negative stigma associated with traditional, manual hair transplants and expect exceptional results without the side effects and recovery time common with older techniques.

How Will You Look?
Preview your potential results today. The ARTAS Hair Studio® Technology is a 3D photograph based simulation of your potential results. During your consultation, your physician will design your personalized aesthetic hair pattern and illustrate different options, showing you various graft counts and hair distribution, with your direct input.
Your Donor Area
A very important area on your head to consider is where your hair is being harvested from. This is called the donor area and consists of an area on the back and sides of your head. The physician-assisted ARTAS® Robotic System utilizes advanced algorithms to identify and select the best hairs for harvesting, ensuring unparalleled results and preserving the natural look of your donor area.
Your Optimal Hair
Advanced digital imaging scans, tracks and grades each hair, selecting your best hairs for harvesting. Image-guided precision robotics remove each hair individually. Only the minimum amount of your hair needed is harvested to complete the chosen aesthetic design, created by your physician using ARTAS Hair Studio.
Your Site Making Plan
Your aesthetic design from ARTAS Hair Studio is delivered to the robot for Recipient Site Making. The ARTAS Robotic System creates the ideal hair pattern, giving you a natural look that avoids damaging pre-existing healthy hair.
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.
