A receding hairline, thinning hair, and hair loss can instantly break a person’s self esteem and ability to enjoy life. Hair transplants have become an innovative technology that can restore a person’s confidence and enhance their quality of life. Robotic hair transplants are a breakthrough in the hair transplant industry, as they go beyond the efficiency of a regular hair transplant by using robotic technology and smart algorithms for successful and permanent results. 

Now you’re probably wondering, what does a robotic hair transplant entail? Also, can it provide even better results than a regular transplant? Read on to learn exactly what a robotic hair transplant is and how it works.   

What Are Robotic Hair Transplants? 

Robotic hair transplants use FDA-approved and physician-assisted robotic technology to restore hair along areas of the head where needed. Robotic hair transplants are still an underrated transplant method that many hopeful patients may not know about. Using the ARTAS Robotic System, FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is performed, which harvests hair follicles individually instead of a full strip of the scalp for more accuracy and precision. 

The ARTAS robotic hair transplant removes the tedious manual tasks of a normal hair transplant and uses a digital map to make sure the most fruitful hair follicles are harvested and will work well in recipient sites. This ensures thinning areas of the scalp are implanted with hair follicles that will deliver the most results in terms of hair growth and appearance. 

Benefits of Robotic Hair Transplants

If you are curious to learn more about the pros of robotic hair transplants, there are a few that can set it apart from the past common method of hair transplant. Robotic hair transplants have been a fairly recent technology to emerge in the past decade or two, but there are already a number of benefits that make this transplant procedure a preference for many people who want to revitalize their thinning or receding hairline and gain their confidence back. So now, let’s explore some of the benefits of robotic hair transplants. 

#1 No Linear Scars or Stitching

Compared to a regular hair transplant, a robotic hair transplant is minimally invasive, virtually pain-free, and leaves behind no linear scars or stitching that may make you self-conscious. This means you have the freedom to cut and style your hair any way you’d like, without having to worry about large scars or stitching showing through. In addition, the lack of aftercare and pain of a robotic transplant compared to a manual one allows you to go about your daily routine quickly after a hair transplant procedure as well. 

#2 Advanced Precision With Robotic Harvesting

Unlike manual techniques, robotic harvesting uses digital mapping for precise and consistent graft dissection of hair follicles. This means you can have the reassurance of skilled precision by a specially created technology that won’t falter or make any incorrect or deviated choices. ARTAS robotic technology also works incredibly fast, harvesting more than 2,000 grafts per hour. 

#3 Intelligent Hair Algorithms

Robotic technology uses intelligent algorithms to speed up the process of extraction, which means identifying the best candidates in hair follicles for the transplantation process. What is analyzed in the hair follicles for extraction? Checking the donor area, the ARTAS robot technology analyzes features of each hair follicle, such as angle, orientation, density, distribution, and direction. 

#4 3D Hairline Planning

With a regular manual hair transplant you can try to achieve a certain look, but there is no guarantee of the final outcome. A robotic hair transplant allows you to preview the effects of different graft counts, hairlines, and hair distribution before the procedure, so you can be confident in narrowing down the final look you want to have. 

HairMD and Robotic Hair Transplants

At HairMD, Dr. Feinberg has an affinity for innovation. He was the first hair transplant surgeon in New Jersey to use the ARTAS robotic hair transplant technology. Now almost a decade later, since obtaining this innovative system, Dr. Feinberg continues to turn to this hair transplant procedure for clients who are looking to get a full head of hair back, along with their confidence! The precise, pain-free, and smart technology behind ARTAS robotic hair transplants could benefit many patients looking into hair transplants and hair loss solutions in general.
