Hair loss is a frustrating issue that many people have to deal with as they grow older. If you are no longer happy with your appearance because of thinning hair, then you might be the perfect candidate for the ARTAS robotic hair transplant procedure.
A Look at Hair Loss
Unlike many other cosmetic problems, hair loss is rarely avoidable. Even if you do everything in your power to protect your hair follicles, there may come a point when you notice thin patches of hair or complete baldness in some areas. The most common cause of hair loss is genetics, and those with a family history of baldness have a very high chance of developing this issue at some point. Additionally, as you grow older, some of the hormones that keep your hair thick and healthy will begin to disappear.
The Ideal ARTAS Candidate
Hair growth creams and ointments might sound tempting, but those products are rarely effective. With the ARTAS robotic hair transplant, you can rest assured that the results are going to be world-class. This treatment is a great option for patients who have thinning hair near the front of the head. Unfortunately, the ARTAS robotic hair transplant doesn’t work on all hair types. We will need to thoroughly examine your hair and scalp before carrying out this procedure.
Your ARTAS Appointment
Every ARTAS treatment is slightly different and you are going to be given exact details during your initial consultation. As a general rule, patients should expect to spend at least half the day at our office. For larger patches of thinning hair, we might split the treatment into two separate appointments. Once your scalp has been prepped, the ARTAS device can be placed directly over your head. The device itself quickly picks out and extracts the healthiest donor hairs from the back and sides of your scalp. It then strategically places those roots where they are needed the most.
Unlike many other hair transplant systems, the ARTAS robotic hair transplant requires absolutely no stitches. You won’t have to worry about unsightly scars or blemishes on your scalp. Most ARTAS patients head back to work after two or three days, and the side effects usually subside by that time. The donor hairs won’t grow for a few weeks, but the results can last for years as long as you care for your scalp with the proper hygiene products.
