ARTAS iX - Robotic FUE

The Most Intelligent Hair Loss Solution


For the very latest technology in hair restoration, Dr. Pizarro is now using the ARTAS iX Hair Restoration System. This interactive, computer assisted equipment employs image guidance to enhance the quality of hair follicle harvesting. ARTAS is the first hair transplant robot to improve the most challenging aspects of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). It received clearance from the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for use in April 2011.

This physician-controlled, state-of-the-art system enables the harvesting of hair follicles during hair restoration procedures. It offers numerous beneficial features, including an image-guided robotic arm, special imaging technologies, small dermal punches and a computer interface. The ARTAS System is capable of identifying and harvesting individual follicular units to implement the FUE technique. The device, guided by cameras and 3-D imaging software, can perform the dissection of hair follicles individually at a rate of up to 1,000 per hour.

Robotic FUE with ARTAS increases the accuracy of harvesting grafts to minimize damage to the follicles. It also reduces harvesting time and improves the chances of graft survival. The FUE procedure involves removing hair directly from the donor region of the scalp in individual, naturally-occurring groups of one to four hairs. Dr. Pizarro begins the procedure by separating the follicular units from the surrounding skin. The follicular units are then extracted from the scalp. Once a recipient site has been created, the follicular unit grafts will be implanted into the area to take root.

The initial step, the separation of the follicular units from the surrounding donor tissue, is a highly repetitive and labor intensive process that requires great precision. This action requires the perfect centering of the punch over the follicular unit and the perfect alignment of the dissecting instrument with the follicles to prevent damage. When taking this step, which must be repeated manually hundreds to thousands of times in a typical FUE hair restoration procedure, the patient is subjected to significant human variability and error.


Improving On FUE

By the age of 50, approximately 50 percent of all men experience some degree of hair loss. Prescription remedies can offer some benefits to existing hair, but hair restoration is the only permanent solution for hair loss and often achieves a natural, undetectable result.

FUE offers less discomfort and a faster return to normal daily activities than traditional, more invasive methods of hair restoration. Performed in Dr. Pizarro’s office, FUE with ARTAS moves healthy, functioning follicles to the areas of the patient’s scalp most impacted by baldness for more dramatic results. The implanted hairs develop their own blood supply, begin to grow and new hairs are seen a few months after the procedure has taken place. New hair continues to grow over the course of a full year, making the change in the patient’s appearance gradually noticeable to others. Healing time is short, and there is no resultant linear scar as happens with other methods of hair restoration. The only evidence is tiny, white scars left in the donor area, which are the same as those produced by manual FUE.
