ARTAS iX™ Robotic Hair Restoration Treatments

Get your hair back by restoring a fuller hairline with the ARTAS® robotic hair restoration procedure. No stitches or staples are required, making your procedure virtually undetectable. Learn why ARTAS iX™ is right for you!


What Is ARTAS iX™?

The ARTAS iX™ robotic hair restoration device is an advanced, minimally invasive hair transplant system that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to deliver precise, natural-looking results without leaving a linear scar. Using advanced image-guided robotics, ARTAS iX™ can precisely analyze and dissect the best grafts from your donor area thousands of times per session, and then accurately identify where they should be implanted to achieve a seamless, personalized hairline that’s perfectly suited to you.


How It Works

The ARTAS iX™ system starts by using 3D technology to help customize and plan your personalized hairline design. It then uses a high-definition stereoscopic vision system, robotic arm, and ARTAS Artificial Intelligence™ algorithms to identify and select the best hair follicles for transplanting. These follicles are then intelligently harvested with robotic precision and speed to preserve the natural look of your donor area, meaning no linear scarring. The ARTAS iX™ system will also accurately identify and create an optimal recipient site and simultaneously implant the harvested hair follicles. The minimally invasive process protects your existing healthy hair and maintains a natural appearance in both the donor area and the new implantation area.

check mark NATURAL RESULTS: Noticeably thicker, natural-looking, and permanent hair growth starts around six months with continued growth over time.

check mark MINIMALLY INVASIVE WITH NO LINEAR SCAR: The ARTAS iX™ system accurately and intelligently extracts and implants individual follicles without the use of scalpels, stitches, or staples, which means no unsightly linear scarring.

check mark FAST AND EFFECTIVE: The robotic method enables greater precision and speed, making the procedure faster than other more manual hair transplant methods.

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know about your ARTAS iX™ treatment

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a minimally invasive hair transplant method that allows the removal of individual follicles from your donor area without a scalpel incision, and then implants them where you need more hair coverage

The ARTAS iX™ system allows a minimally invasive procedure that is virtually undetectable. Unlike previous methods of hair restoration, there is no need for the surgical removal of a strip of scalp from the back and sides of the head. So, there is no linear scar after surgery, and no need for stitches or staples to close the wound. The benefit is a significantly shortened recovery time.

With the ARTAS iX™ system, the FUE method can be done by getting a short trim. Trimming your hair in the donor area allows the ARTAS iX™ system to accurately visualize, track, and harvest each grouping of hairs. You will receive detailed instructions from your doctor on the required length your hair needs to be before the procedure.

As part of the ARTAS procedure, the scalp is locally anesthetized until numb. If you still feel any pain during the procedure, a physician will decide if it’s necessary to administer additional anesthesia to reduce discomfort. The patient typically feels no pain. Some patients can experience minor discomfort and swelling post-procedure, which subsides in one to three days.

Transplanted hair grows naturally in phases. New hairs are seen about three months after the procedure and will continue to increase over the course of a full year. At approximately six months, you will enjoy a noticeable improvement and after a full year, you will see full results. However, individual results and timelines may vary for each patient.

While hair loss may not necessarily stop after transplantation, the ARTAS iX™ procedure uses your own permanent growing hair, typically from the back of your head, and your physician then implants this hair to the thinning areas of your scalp. As this hair might not be susceptible to the conditions that cause male pattern baldness, transplanted hair will typically last a lifetime. Your doctor will be able to assess your treatment options and discuss what you can expect.

Your physician will numb the area with a local anesthesia before beginning the procedure, so you will likely feel minimal discomfort while the hair transplant is being done. Some physicians also offer the option of mild sedation for the duration of the procedure, depending on your preference. Once the numbing wears off and as the grafts heal, you may experience some tenderness around the donor site. This is a normal part of the healing process and should subside in a few days. Always be sure to consult with your physician with regards to post-procedure care and pain management.

Real people. Real results.

Extraordinary results speak for themselves


The ARTAS iX™ from Restoration Robotics® is indicated for harvesting hair follicles from the scalp in men diagnosed with androgenic alopecia (male pattern hair loss) who have black or brown straight hair. The ARTAS iX™ from Restoration Robotics® is intended to assist physicians in identifying and extracting hair follicular units from the scalp during hair transplantation; creating recipient sites; and implanting harvested hair follicles.
