ARTAS Center of Clinical Excellence
ARTAS Center of Clinical ExcellenceWe are recognized as “ARTAS Center of Clinical Excellence” by the Restoration Robotics company – together with selected few centers in the world that are leaders in robotic hair restoration!
In order to achieve this status, a center must be able to perform ARTAS Procedures with the following performance criteria: procedures of > 2000 grafts, follicle transection rates of < 10%, harvest yields of > 85%, and harvest speeds of 700 grafts/hr.
General Presentation of the ARTAS System
The New Horizons Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Chicago is pleased to offer premier and leading technology in hair transplantation. We are the only hair transplantation center in the Midwest to offer both the ARTAS robotic hair restoration system and the Neograft automated hair transplantation. The ARTAS robotic hair transplant system is a minimally invasive approach that is different than traditional hair transplant techniques. Robotic hair transplant technology using the ARTAS system markedly reduces the time spent manually performing follicular unit extraction and follicular unit transplant. The ARTAS robotic hair transplant technology is critical for grafting high-quality and consistent hair grafts throughout the procedure. Robotic hair transplant depends on digital imaging to continually assess a patient’s scalp for follicular units. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is necessary for a successful hair transplant with natural results. Depending upon your unique clinical situation, Neograft technology may be the only FUE transplation option. For these reasons, The New Horizons Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Chicago is the most experienced and respected leader in the Midwest. No other hair transplantation center in the area offers you the choice of ARTAS robotic hair restoration system and Neograft.
Whether you are Caucasian, Hispanic, African Amercian, Asian, or from any other cultural background, rest assured that our FUE Hair Transplantation Center is right for you. FUE is a successful minimally-invasive permanent treatment for baldness in patients regardless of their hair texture. We encourage our patients to visit ourTransplantation Center to discuss your individual and personal needs. We care about our patients and go the extra step to make you feel comfortable. Our experts are confident that once you understand how the ARTAS robotic hair transplant technology uses digital visualization strategies to survey your head and assist your physician throughout the process, you will be comfortable. The FUE hair transplant using the ARTAS robotic hair transplant technology delivers unbeatable results. We can take the hair from other regions of your head that are fuller and from other sources of body hair such as chest hair or leg hair. Our team looks forward to providing you with a clinical consultation to discuss your individual needs and answer any questions. Read more about The ARTAS System.
Information about the ARTAS Procedure
The ARTAS hair transplant system is an industry-recognized advancement in robotic hair transplant. The procedure of robotic hair transplant is anticipated to become more affordable, accessible, and less painful for patients. The goal of this procedure is to transplant hair follicles from thicker sections of the hair into balding areas to stimulate growth. The ARTAS procedure leaves patients with less recovery time due to the minimally invasive technique. Most hair-restorations surgeons will not perform individual follicular unit extraction techniques due to the prolonged follicular unit extraction time and fatigue. The ARTAS hair transplant system eliminates the common trend in the hair restoration industry of removing a scalp strip and removing individual hair follicles under a microscope. Patients reap the greatest benefits, minimal pain, and virtually no downtime after this hair transplant system.
The hair transplant physician encourages the patient to trim their hair to optimize digital scanning. The physician will apply a local anesthetic agent to the scalp to make a virtually painless procedure. Next, a skin tensioner is applied to the scalp to maximize the benefits of ARTAS system digital scanning. The system initiates digital scanning over the patient’s scalp to identify the natural groupings of hair follicles. The ARTAS system begins the follicular unit extraction technique under the physician’s guidance. The physician determines the amount of follicular units needed to complete the hair transplant. The follicular unit extraction is performed until enough hair has been collected. Each FUE hair transplant graft is carefully transplanted into various areas of the scalp. The grafts will grow as permanent hair leading to a significant amount of new hair growth and a fuller head of hair. Patients observe a substantial improvement and new hair growth approximately six months after the ARTAS robotic hair transplant procedure. After nine months, patients experience a permanent change in their previous hair condition. The success of this robotic hair transplant procedure and the short nine month post-treatment growth and transformation period are well worth the time and investment.
