How is the ARTAS Robotic Procedure different than “Hair Plugs”?

Old fashioned “hair plugs” included the harvesting of large patches of hair that resulted in an awkward and unnatural appearance once implanted. The ARTAS Robotic System uses its computer-assisted robotic arm and digital mapping to pinpoint hair groupings as they naturally grow in the donor area. This process provides the doctor micron level control and unparalleled precision in designing a natural looking head of hair and a natural hairline. Because the ARTAS Robotic System enables unmatched precision and accuracy, doctors are able to extract healthy robust hairs for optimal growth.

How does the ARTAS® Robotic Procedure work?

The ARTAS Robotic Procedure is a minimally invasive hair restoration solution that leverages digital imaging and precision robotics to harvest healthy grafts for transplantation. Unlike the earlier 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, no linear scar left after surgery and no need for stitches or staples to close the wound. The benefit is a quick recovery time and the ability to return to normal activities and work sooner.

Are ARTAS Robotic Procedure hair transplant results permanent?

The ARTAS Robotic Procedure uses your own permanent growing hair, typically from the back of your head, and your physician then implants this hair to the thinning areas of your scalp. As this hair is not susceptible to the conditions that cause male pattern baldness, transplanted hair will last a lifetime.

How long does the ARTAS Robotic Procedure take?

The ARTAS Robotic Procedure usually takes from four to eight hours as determined by your doctor to achieve your hair restoration goals. You are comfortably seated during the process, and the doctor and staff are there with you to maximize your comfort throughout the procedure.

How long does it take to recover and heal?

Recovery time with the ARTAS Robotic Procedure is less than with most surgical cosmetic procedures. As there is no surgical incision or stitches required with the ARTAS Robotic Procedure, healing time is short, and you can usually go back to your daily activities after a day or two. Some doctors schedule a follow up visit the morning after the procedure to examine your scalp and to teach you how to take care of your newly implanted hair.

When will my new hair start to grow?

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 final results.

Will people know I have had a hair restoration procedure?

With the ARTAS Robotic procedure, any scarring is minimal and is nearly undetectable. Your new hair grows in gradually, reducing the chance that people will notice the procedure. Your friends and family will comment that you look better, but the results from your hair restoration are subtle and natural.

Does the ARTAS Robotic Procedure hurt?

The ARTAS Robotic Procedure, an outpatient procedure performed in the doctor’s office, requires only a local anesthetic. The patient feels virtually no pain. Some patients can experience minor discomfort and swelling post-procedure, which subsides in one to three days.

Will there be visible scarring in the Donor area?
Because the ARTAS Robotic System selectively harvests individual hair groupings rather than removing a large area of scalp requiring sutures, there is minimal scarring in the donor area. Hair can be worn fashionably short, or in longer styles, whatever you prefer. You’re not limited by having to cover scarring from strip surgery.
Do I have to cut my hair before treatment?
Trimming your hair in the donor area allows the ARTAS System to accurately visualize, track and harvest each grouping of hairs. You will receive instructions on having your hair cut shorter in preparation for your ARTAS Robotic Procedure.
What is the price of the ARTAS Robotic Procedure?

Treatment costs will be determined during your consultation with your doctor and depend on the amount of new hair that you desire. Discuss the procedure pricing with your doctor, as some doctors may offer payment options.

Is hair restoration safe for women?

Artas is also recommended for women who suffer from hair loss as long as they are medically cleared by their physician.

Meet the Team

Dr. Walton Montegut

Dr. Walton Montegut has been a highly skilled hair restoration doctor for 10 years and a plastic surgeon for over 15. He has experience in all types of hair restoration including traditional Strip Surgery, Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation (FUT), Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), and the most cutting edge hair restoration technology to hit the market- ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration. Dr. Montegut's passion for hair restoration has amplified even more since he became involved with the ARTAS Robotic treatment. He finds the procedure to be much less painful, more natural looking, with no scarring. Dr. Montegut also appreciates how much work the robot does to reduce the fatigue of himself and his team. "The treatment time is 1/3 of what it was during traditional methods of hair transplants. The robot avoids healthy hair follicles and produces such natural looking results that patients are absolutely shocked at how good the results are from the Artas procedure," says Dr. Montegut. "The best part of my job is seeing it change my patients’ lives." Dr. Montegut works alongside a team of expert hair technicians who have been doing hair restoration for even longer than he has.

Jennifer Le is an Aesthetic Physician Assistant with a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Health from University of California, Berkeley and has a Master’s Degree in Physician Assistant Studies from Pace University. She began her professional experience at a cosmetic and medical dermatology office and then when onto Memorial Sloan Kettering’s in the plastic surgery department in New York City. There Le gained a comprehensive insight on non-invasive and invasive solutions to achieve facial and bodily goals. One of the reasons why she loves aesthetic medicine is seeing patient’s transformation and how it positively impacts their energy. Le also finds the continuing advancements in skin and hair technology exciting.

In addition to injectable and laser treatments at DermFx, she is involved in the latest hair technology, ARTAS robotic hair transplant surgery. Relative to the strip surgery and manual FUE method, ARTAS robotic hair transplant surgery is a fast, highly efficient, precise solution for hair loss. “ARTAS is minimally invasive and involves fine punches without any linear scar, allowing patients the best aesthetic outcome,” says Le. She’s excited to be working alongside the DermFx team pioneering this procedure.
