In many cases, robots that have come into medicine have made the procedures more time-consuming and more complex. In the case of robotic hair transplant (ARTAS) this is not the case. If the doctor has a deep knowledge of hair restoration, this tool can help him to rise to an even higher level of skill, freeing him from the labor-intensive process of extraction of hair follicles.
This devices tripled efficiency more than. Doctors started doing 6700 follicular extractions a day instead of 1500, as before. A consistent and precise robotic extraction procedure not only relieves this tedious task of the surgeon, but also improves the end result that the patient is waiting for.
The system provides excellent visual access to the hair follicles and effectively collects individual hairs. Participation of the robotic arm, with its consistency and accuracy, means that the participation of physicians in this procedure is minimized, they can adjust the system settings without interrupting the procedure.
Hair transplantation is a fence of healthy hair from the nape of the neck and transplanting them into problem areas. Hair on the back of the head is resistant to the hormone responsible for hair loss. Therefore, the hair that grew after hair transplantation will not fall again.
This procedure is the most effective procedure for hair transplantation at the present time.
Hair roots are transplanted individually. This is a safe procedure that is performed with the use of local anesthesia. Accurate robotics and your doctor’s experience will provide a lasting result that looks natural and which you can enjoy throughout your life.
First you need to prepare a fence area. The area from where the follicles will be taken is marked. Then, to identify, observe and collect the follicles, the hair in the fence area should be shortened to 1 mm. Local anesthesia is applied to the fence area. In order to ensure the robot hair intake, without damaging or losing them, a protracted device is installed on the fence area. At this stage, all quality follicles are taken. Thus, the robot starts work.
Of course, a robot can not completely replace a person, and a plastic surgeon with high qualifications and extensive experience in hair transplantation can work with the device.
However, ARTAS takes over and performs at the extra-class level such stages of the operation as sampling grafts and preparation of micro-holes for graft transplantation.
The robot creates 3D images of the donor and recipient (area of thinning / alopecia) areas, analyzes the density of hair growth and extracts hair follicles for a subsequent transplant. ARTAS accurately calculates how many grafts can be used on a specific donor site in order to preserve the natural density of hair in it afterwards.
The process of sampling grafts for the subsequent transplantation occurs quickly and qualitatively. This unique device scans the hair for melanin pigment, traces the depth and angle of growth and produces the follicle extirpation in the ideal for transplantation.
Thus, the robotic method of hair transplantation using the ARTAS device will help to perform complex transplant operations several times faster and more efficiently.
