The FUE procedure leaves tiny round hypopigmented areas on the back of your head. One of the advantages that FUE has over FUT/strip surgery is that these are easily covered by very short hair. The linear scar of FUT/strip is more noticeable and requires longer hair to ensure that it won’t be seen. The linear strip scar also may be more noticeable under wet hair which is bad news for swimmers and beach-goers.
The ARTAS FUE uses a three dimensional image guided software and robotic arm, for live motion tracking, and a comfortable front reclining position for the patient. The expertise of our physician and clinical staff determine the pattern and density required for transplanted follicles to provide volume and a natural look. It’s a little bit of art, and a lot of science that makes for a better procedure for our patients.
The ARTAS is the most precise, accurate, and repeatable method of doing an FUE procedure – both in harvesting without causing damage to your limited and irreplaceable donor grafts, and its ability to make recipient sites into your thinning areas without damaging your existing hair follicles.
