7 Benefits of the Artas Hair Transplant System

7 Benefits of the Artas Hair Transplant System

You probably didn’t know how much you cherished your hair until it was gone. Not only does losing your hair make you look old, but it hinders your emotional well-being, too. 

While some men aren’t bothered by hair loss, others wish to do something about it. But you don’t want to just opt for any procedure — get the best in the industry.

At Hair Doc, located in Cow Hollow, San Francisco, California, we offer Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) with ARTAS® iX robotic system to give you natural, full hair you can run your fingers through. Read on to discover seven benefits it brings to decide if it's right for you.

1. Graft survival of up to 98%

Your hair has three growth cycles — a growing, regressing, and resting cycle. As you get older, the growing and regressing cycles get shorter before the follicle no longer grows hair. This process shows up differently in everyone but 66% of men experience some degree of hair loss by 35.

The ARTAS hair transplant restores your hair by replacing old, dormant follicles with new ones that can grow hair. Peter Panagotacos, MD, selects the best hair grafts with the ARTAS system by using its stereoscopic vision system, artificial intelligence system, and robotic arm. 

This comprehensive system allows for one of the highest success rates in hair transplants — up to 98%.

2. Pain-free procedure 

When considering hair transplant procedures, you want to deal with the best. Dr. Panagotacos has been providing hair transplant procedures for over 50 years so you can feel confident and safe when you come in.

ARTAS transplants are a type of FUT. This method is one of the most sought-after procedures because it keeps your comfort in mind, making it a good option if you have a low pain tolerance. No scalpel and no stitches are used in this procedure, which makes it more comfortable than FUT. 

3. Efficacy in less time

When compared with other extraction methods, the ARTAS technology uses intelligent algorithms to speed up its process of extraction without jeopardizing quality. 

The system analyzes the most important features of hair follicles, including density, direction, angle, and distribution. With this technology in place, it gives you better results but with less time spent in our office.

4. No linear scar

If you’ve researched hair transplant methods, you’re probably familiar with FUT. FUT involves extracting a strip of hair from the back of your head to create follicular units. Sutures are placed in your head, which leaves behind a vertical scar that may be visible if you wear your hair short.

FUE works differently, by using a micro-punch tool, Dr. Panagotacos extracts hair follicles from various places in your head and transplants them onto bald areas. Scarring is less noticeable with this method and appears less than one millimeter in diameter making it invisible even down to clipper #1 setting.

5. Natural results

You might have shied away from hair transplants in the past for fear of the “hair plug” look. However, this is an outdated method that has since been replaced by methods like FUE. By using your hair and the high volume of donor implants, FUE provides extremely natural results without anyone knowing you had work done.

6. Quick recovery time

Immediately after FUE, you can see the shape of your new hairline with the hair follicles present. After you approve the placement, we bandage your head to avoid dirt and impurities from entering the small incisions.

Most patients need 3-5 days off work to heal before they can resume normal activities. During this time, you are instructed to follow several after-care measures to ensure proper healing. This includes:

Results are not immediate — generally, it takes six months to a year before you experience full results.

7. Permanent results

One of the best reasons to consider an FUE is because its natural and effective results can last a lifetime. That makes it a cost-effective procedure that in most cases, doesn’t have to be repeated. 

While FUE provides hair growth where you’ve previously lost hair, it doesn’t prevent existing hair from future loss. If you have a good deal of hair loss, Dr. Panagotacos may suggest you undergo multiple FUE treatments to get the best results.
