What Is ARTAS®?

The ARTAS® 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® 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® 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® 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® system accurately and intelligently harvests 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® 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® 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® system, the FUE method can be done by getting a short trim. Trimming your hair in the donor area allows the ARTAS® 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® 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.

THE TREATMENT EXPERIENCE

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.

No result can ever be guaranteed, but the before-and-after photos from previous NeoGraft® patients show that incredible results are very likely. With certified NeoGraft® providers, you can rest assured that you are in very good hands. Your physician will set as realistic expectations as possible and make sure all your questions are answered.

There's typically very little pain or discomfort after the procedure. You may experience a slight amount of drainage for the first day after your procedure, but this is minimal. You must refrain from strenuous activity for two weeks, to ensure you do not cause any harm to the newly implanted grafts. You can expect the newly implanted grafts to be slightly raised in the first week after the procedure. Around three to four days later, they will start to scab over and then possibly shed. Shedding is good and a natural part of the healing process.

Recovery time after a NeoGraft® hair restoration procedure is much faster than traditional hair transplants, because there is no incision involved. The newly implanted grafts may feel tender and appear slightly raised at first, but this should subside in one week. You may also see some scabbing, but this should also flake off within a week. Your physician will instruct you on how to properly care for your new grafts, but most patients are able to return to their usual routine within two weeks after completing the procedure.

Immediately after your NeoGraft® procedure, the physician will ensure that the new grafts are secure and in their proper position. They will thoroughly rinse the treated areas and a light protective dressing may be applied. You will be given detailed instructions about how to care for the grafts when you go home, including any recommended shampoos, topical antiseptics, or hair care products. Because there is no incision, there is no need to get any sutures removed.
