ARTAS iX is an innovative hair restoration system, utilizing artificial intelligence to deliver precise and effective results. The manual FUE (follicular unit extraction) method is tedious and allows for human error. The ARTAS system identifies the best hair follicles for harvesting and transplanting, allowing for minimal invasion or scarring.
Who Can Benefit from ARTAS iX?
Hair thinning and balding is a natural part of the aging process for many, especially men. Those who want to restore the appearance of thicker, fuller hair can benefit from hair restoration with the ARTAS iX machine. There are many hair restoration techniques available to patients, but many choose the ARTAS iX system to avoid the need for a more invasive procedure like the strip method, which results in a linear scar and downtime.
Treatment with ARTAS iX
To begin hair restoration treatment, the ARTAS iX system will be used to create a 3D map of the hair follicles. This allows us to plan the hair pattern needed for restoration and indicates which hair follicles are the strongest for removal. The hair follicles will then be individually extracted, or harvested, and prepared for transplanting. The scalp will be numbed prior to this process to ensure patient comfort. The ARTAS iX system can then identify the best locations for the hair graft to be placed, allowing for natural-looking hair restoration without noticeable scarring.
After Treatment with ARTAS iX
After hair restoration treatment with ARTAS iX, patients can expect a few days of discomfort, but typically Tylenol is all that is needed to manage this. Over the next 3-6 months, stronger hair will regrow in the transplanted areas to produce a thicker, fuller head of hair.
