Hair Transplant is the process by which hair from a balding resistant part of the scalp is extracted together with its root and transplanted into an area of the scalp that is already balding. As you would imagine, this is a highly delicate procedure. And since each hair transplant surgery session involves 800-1500 strands of hair to be extracted and transplant, it is also a very repetitive process. Intense concentration for hours are needed to ensure the hair are extracted without breaking the roots off. And then planting it back in the correct direction and density to ensure a most natural looking hairline. The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System automates the extraction of the hair follicular units, which takes the tedium out of half of the entire surgery process. This translates to better outcomes and results. Even with the ARTAS Robot, the art of framing a face to make it more attractive is still in the realm of the human operator.
