A robotic hair transplant is one of the most modern methods for a hair transplant. It is also quite a significant progress in the techniques used for the FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction procedure of transplant. This is because this method is fully automated.
Using the ARTAS System, a robotic hair transplant utilises specialised technology along with a robotic arm to extract and implant hair follicles into the thinning or balding areas of the scalp with minute precision. This method does not require any surgery and is very minimally invasive.
Unlike traditional methods of hair transplant, the robotic hair transplant method takes a lot less time. The robotic system comprises a robotic limb with hair extraction and site creation tools attached to it. It also has a different camera and video imaging systems, with a specialised computer user interface or control panel.
For a robotic hair transplant, the hair transplant surgeon would use the following steps:
Therefore, a robotic hair transplant will most likely reverse the hair loss due to thinning hair, bald spots and receding hairlines.
