ARTAS® Transplant: Before and After Photos

ARTAS-Transplant-Before-and-After-PhotosIt’s been almost a full year since the ARTAS® System arrived at the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, and the response has been exceptional. South Florida residents have been quick to embrace the new “transplant robot” after learning two important facts about the ARTAS procedure:

1. ARTAS is physician-guided. Though ARTAS is the first ever FDA-approved robot for FUE hair transplant, the procedure is conducted under the supervision of a trained and highly skilled surgeon. The “robotic” element of the procedure occurs when donor hair is scouted for extraction and transplant. The surgeon, however, still conducts the actual transplant by hand.

2. ARTAS delivers unparalleled precision and accuracy. The ARTAS is the only system in the world to calculate and re-calculate vital parameters for follicular unit (hair) extraction up to 50 times each second. As the onboard computer makes these calculations, the robotic arm of the ARTAS aligns itself to perform a minimally invasive extraction with unparalleled precision and accuracy.

Before and After: A Review of the ARTAS® System

An estimated 35 million Americans are candidates for a surgical hair restoration procedure (i). However, only a small fraction of those individuals move forward to claim a new, natural, and permanent head of hair. Individuals cite numerous reasons for straying away from a surgical procedure, including:

  • Discomfort
  • Too long a recovery time
  • Fear of noticeable “pluggy” look
  • Fear of post-procedure “linear scar”

Artas Revolution: Hair Transplant, Redefined

A new generation of ARTAS System procedures are quickly redefining what it means to have a hair transplant, and patients could not be happier. As the world’s most advanced method of FUE transplant, ARTAS enables surgeons to deliver perfectly natural results through a more comfortable patient experience.

Today, ARTAS makes hair transplant procedures:

  1. Faster
  2. More comfortable
  3. Minimally invasive, causing less trauma to the scalp
  4. More precise, consistent, and accurate compared to older methods
  5. No linear scarring, enabling patients to wear shorter haircuts post-procedure
  6. Advanced FUE, allowing surgeons to use ARTAS to cover scars from previous “strip donor” procedures

Women and Hair Loss: Top 4 Signs

Women and Hair Loss: Top 4 SignsHair loss in women is more common than many may think, amounting to nearly 20 million females in America alone.  Most women do not notice signs of thinning or balding in their hair until the age of 50 or 60, long after it has already begun.  It may take women much longer to notice the signs of hair loss compared to men because they tend to wear their hair longer, effectively hiding telltale symptoms of hair loss for many years.  Women also lose hair across the entire top of the head, in contrast to men who typically lose hair in concentrated areas like the crown or temple.  This wider, more dispersed pattern of hair loss adds to the difficulty of early detection.

Yet it is early detection, evaluation, and treatment that are the 3 keys to effectively treating hair loss in women.  Early detection is perhaps most important, as hair loss is most effectively treated during the early stages of development.  For this reason, it is important that women learn to recognize the signs of hair loss while also performing regular self-examinations to ensure symptoms are caught as soon as they become visible.

Top 4 Signs of Female Hair Loss

Female hair loss manifests itself in a variety of ways; learning to recognize the signs of thinning or balding is the best way to diagnose and treat the condition early, which ultimate creates better results.  The most common signs to look for include the following:

  1. Thinning hair:  Unlike men, hair loss in women tends to develop in a general or widespread area throughout the top of the head.  Women must pay particular attention to this region, checking regularly for noticeable changes in thickness.
  2. A wider “part”:  If you regularly part your hair, take note of the thickness/width of the part.  Parts will appear to become wider as hair loss progresses.
  3. Hair accumulation on pillows, combs, and in the shower:  It is normal for hair to accumulate on our personal items and throughout our living spaces.  However, hair accumulation in these areas will become more pronounced as hair loss progresses.  Here’s a tip:  Look for increases in hair accumulation on the pillow of your bed and the comb you use most.  Effectively monitoring hair accumulation in the shower may be more difficult; some hair is inevitably washed down the drain, and it may be challenging to separate your hair from someone else’s.
  4. A more visible scalp:  Take notice of how much of the scalp is visible when your hair is pulled back.  As hair loss progresses, the underlying scalp will become increasingly visible.
