ARTAS iX® Robotic FUE Hair Restoration Procedure in Philadelphia
The ARTAS iX system is an FDA-cleared, robotic hair restoration device. This groundbreaking minimally invasive hair transplant system is also known as robotic follicular unit extraction (RFUE) – a procedure that is essentially pain-free and does not involve the traditional incision of the scalp. The ARTAS delivers precise, natural-looking results without leaving a linear scar.
Benefits of ARTAS iX® Robotic FUE Hair Restoration Procedure ARTAS iX® Robotic FUE Hair Restoration Procedure offers men and women several benefits, including:
☑️ Truly groundbreaking hair transplant system.
☑️Physician-guided robotic technology that delivers precise, natural-looking results.
☑️No linear scarring.
☑️ARTAS iX takes out the guesswork and chooses the optimum number of grafts from your donor area.
☑️It then accurately identifies where they should be implanted.
☑️This helps to to achieve a seamless, natural-looking hairline that best complements your facial structure.
Candidates for the ARTAS® Robotic Technology
You may be a good candidate if you:
☑️ Prefer to wear short hair
☑️Want minimal downtime and the least amount of activity restriction after your hair transplant procedure
☑️Need “scar camouflage” to hide prior linear harvests or scars
☑️Ultimately, the best way to determine whether you are a candidate for the ARTAS is to schedule a one-on-one consultation at The Lumen Center.
SMP with a Hair Transplant
It may come as a surprise, but scalp micropigmentation is often very complementary to a hair transplant and can provide excellent results. Depending on the size of your donor area, a hair transplant surgeon may only be able to transplant a certain amount of hair follicles. For this reason, a hair transplant may not provide the desired density, or there may be an area of the scalp we can’t treat with a hair transplant alone. SMP with a follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant provides the best of both worlds. A hair transplant provides the feel and texture of real hair, and SMP has added benefit of enhancing the look of thickness and density. In most cases, we would complete the hair transplant first, and then it could be followed by SMP 3-6 months later.
