During your ARTAS procedure, we will first administer a topical anesthetic cream onto the top, sides, and back of your head. Then, we will program the robot to configure to your hair type and desired effect. It will work to extract the healthy follicles from your donor areas in groups of 4-6 follicles. Then, it will take those groupings and inject them into the thinning areas at equal depths.
Because the process is automated, the room for error has decreased significantly. Since ARTAS plants the follicles at equal depths in the top of your head, your hair will grow out equally. The duration of this procedure depends on how large the target area is. On average, an ARTAS procedure takes 4-8 hours to complete and if the target area is larger then more sessions may be required.
