Recently we were excited to work with Cameron Hamilton, star of Love Is Blind on Netflix, as he embarked on his ARTAS® hair restoration journey. Not only is Cameron an international TV star, but he is also an accomplished AI/data scientist and entrepreneur in the field of Artificial Intelligence with his own company Alliance AI. When he was looking for a way to restore his hairline by leveraging advanced technologies, the ARTAS® Robotic Hair Restoration System naturally caught his attention. Cameron shared his experience with his millions of social media followers all over the world, and we’re grateful to have the opportunity to do the same.
To begin his journey, Cameron traveled to New York to work with one of the best hair transplant surgeons in the world, Dr. Michael Wolfeld. Dr. Wolfeld is a double board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in the field of hair restoration in Manhattan and was immediately sensitive to the added pressures placed on Cameron from being in the public eye. “You know, I’m on camera all the time,” Cameron explains. His receding hairline was constantly in the spotlight. “I felt like I couldn’t really style it in a way that looked good.” As such, Cameron is looking for natural-looking results that work with his lifestyle. He also has great support and encouragement from Lauren, his wife of three years whom he met on Netflix’s reality show sensation, Love Is Blind. “She wants me to be happy,” he says with a big smile.

As the leading hair restoration expert in his field, Dr. Wolfeld can attest that the ARTAS® system’s multiple built-in cameras, artificial intelligence, and robotic technology have made it a game-changer for patients. It was a deciding factor for Cameron, as well, stating “I was immediately drawn to ARTAS® because, first of all, I really love the AI technology.”
For the tech fans, it doesn’t get more cutting-edge than the ARTAS®. Using a process called Robotic Follicular Unit Extraction / Excision (FUE), ARTAS® harvests individual hair follicles from the back or sides of the head using a highly specialized robotic arm and punch, which allows the procedure to be precise and minimally invasive. The grafts are then transferred to the area where more hair growth is desired, mimicking the placement of natural hairs.
The FUE method has mostly replaced previous versions of hair transplantation surgery, including the strip method or Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). With the outdated FUT method, scarring was a major concern, and due to the nature of the surgery, the procedure was more painful and the healing process was much longer. The advancement of FUE systems such as the ARTAS® has significantly reduced, and even eliminated, many of those patient concerns. The ARTAS ® procedure is comfortable, leaves no linear scarring, and requires little in terms of recovery or aftercare. After the procedure, ARTAS® patients will see their hair grow in gradually, with full results in 9-12 months.
In the past, many clients have been primarily concerned about the stigma of baldness and undergoing hair restoration treatments. By augmenting the experience with robotics and a futuristic AI program, we hoped to change that—and as you can see from Cameron’s journey, it is working. His excitement about the ARTAS® procedure and his results couldn’t be more of a testament to that. “The best investment you can make is in yourself,” he says. “That’s ultimately going to pay the biggest dividends.” For Cameron, hair restoration was a matter of investing in his confidence, his future. “For me, this is a long-term investment in how I look and how I feel.”
Last year, a record-breaking number of ARTAS® procedures were performed with incredible patient satisfaction ratings, proving just how popular this efficacious hair restoration method has become among those seeking a long-term solution for hair loss.
