The ARTAS™ robotic system is the first and only robotic hair transplant technology available worldwide.
Using guided imagery, the surgeon assists the ARTAS™ robot in extracting follicular units precisely. Thousands of follicular units can be extracted in a single session, whatever the type of hair (straight, curly, afro, etc.)
Below is a download link to a PDF document (French language) published by the Société Française de Chirurgie Plastique Reconstructrice et Esthétique (SOF.CPRE). It provides detailed information about hair transplant procedures.
Follicular units are selected and extracted by an intelligent algorithm aided by an intuitive control system. The procedure guarantees the preservation of a natural look of the donor area. Designed to optimize the surgeon’s abilities and craft, the ARTAS™ system consistently delivers great results.
The ARTAS™ system has been developed both by robotic experts and leading hair transplant specialists. It uses guided digital imagery and an intelligent algorithm to optimize graft extraction. The characteristics of follicular units are tracked in real time at an actualization rate of 60 adjustments per second. The HD interface provides multiple views of the donor area and allows the surgeons to adjust extraction parameters without interrupting the procedure. Thanks to the ARTAS™ procedure, follicular units are extracted with a speed and precision well beyond what manual procedures can provide.
The ARTAS™ technology uses digital imagery to generate a very precise cartography of the patient’s follicular units. Our surgeon then uses the robot to precisely and cleanly extract grafts. The donor area will maintain a natural look. The surgical support team then meticulously re-implants the grafts on the scalp’s recipient area according to a pattern discussed with and approved by the patient.
Compared to manual procedures, The ARTAS™ robotic system improves surgical performance in three key areas where robotics have proven their reliability and accuracy.
In the last decade, robotics have allowed dramatic improvements in many types of surgical procedures. Robotic systems have been developed to help surgeons when procedures require difficult, repetitive and precise surgical movements. Their precision also means less invasive procedures and no scarring, which is a big plus for patients.
Thanks to this technological advancement, Restoration Robotics has brought hair transplant technology to a new level of sophistication and performance. Hair transplants are now safer, more precise and more consistent.
The robotically-guided procedure ensures appropriate angulation
Follicular unit parameters are updated 60 times per second
Surgical skills are applied with greater speed and precision
Key parameters such as puncture depth and angle are defined very precisely
Fatigue-resulting mistakes and irregular donor area extraction patterns are avoided
Follicle transection rates are minimized
The ARTAS™ robotic system was approved by the FDA in 2011 after thorough testing and trials.
In addition, the ARTAS™ robotic system has received CE certification from the European Union as well as other major institutions worldwide.
Restoration Robotics continues to collaborate with a growing number of hair transplant specialists in order to develop new ways of using the ARTAS™ technology with the aim of ever improving patient experience and results.
