Meet The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System
Using advanced image-guided robotics, ARTAS® can precisely analyse and dissect the best grafts from your donor area thousands of times per session, and then accurately identify where they should be implanted to achieve a seamless, personalised hairline that’s perfectly suited to you.
The advantage of this innovative technology over traditional ‘manual’ FUE hair transplant methods is that the robotic technology enables FUE to be performed with unparalleled precision and speed.
It then uses a high-definition stereoscopic vision system, robotic arm, and ARTAS Artificial Intelligence algorithms to identify and select the best hair follicles for transplanting. These follicles are then intelligently harvested with robotic precision and speed to preserve the natural look of your donor area, meaning no linear scarring.
The ARTAS® system will also accurately identify and create an optimal recipient site and simultaneously implant the harvested hair follicles*. The minimally invasive process protects your existing healthy hair and maintains a natural appearance in both the donor area and the new implantation area.
Knudsen Clinics the Pioneer of ARTAS® in Australia The Knudsen Clinic is the first Hair Transplant Clinic in the Southern Hemisphere to have the state-of-the-art ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System, situated in its Sydney Clinic located in Double Bay. Our core team have been working together for 13+ years and are the most experienced ARTAS hair robot team in Australia.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a minimally invasive hair transplant method that allows the removal of individual follicles from your donor area without a scalpel incision, and then implants them where you need more hair coverage.
The ARTAS® system allows a minimally invasive procedure that is virtually undetectable. Unlike previous methods of hair restoration, there is no need for the surgical removal of a strip of scalp from the back and sides of the head. So, there is no linear scar after surgery, and no need for stitches or staples to close the wound. The benefit is a significantly shortened recovery time.
With the ARTAS® system, the FUE method can be done by getting a short trim. Trimming your hair in the donor area allows the ARTAS® system to accurately visualise, track, and harvest each grouping of hairs. You will receive detailed instructions from your doctor on the required length your hair needs to be before the procedure.
As part of the ARTAS® procedure, the scalp is locally anesthetised until numb. If you still feel any pain during the procedure, a doctor will decide if it’s necessary to administer additional anaesthesia to reduce discomfort. The patient typically feels no pain. Some patients can experience minor discomfort and swelling post-procedure, which subsides in one to three days.
Transplanted hair grows naturally in phases. New hairs are seen about three months after the procedure and will continue to increase over the course of a full year. At approximately six months, you will enjoy a noticeable improvement and after a full year, you will see full results. However, individual results and timelines may vary for each patient.
While hair loss may not necessarily stop after transplantation, the ARTAS® procedure uses your own permanent growing hair, typically from the back of your head, and your doctor then implants this hair to the thinning areas of your scalp. As this hair might not be susceptible to the conditions that cause male pattern baldness, transplanted hair will typically last a lifetime. Your doctor will be able to assess your treatment options and discuss what you can expect.
