ARTAS Robotics Hair Transplant

ARTAS hair transplantation is the first and the only robotic hair transplantation device. Cocoona Centre for Aesthetic Transformation is the first centre in the GCC and Indian subcontinent to acquire the state of the art hair transplantation device.

Hair loss in men and women

Hair loss is a fairly common problem in men and women after the age of 20 years. Men tends to undergo hair loss due to hereditary and male hormones. Whereas in women the causes of hair fall varies from nutritional deficiency, hormonal imbalance to psychological stress.

There are many other causes of hair loss in both men and women.

Male pattern baldness is the commonest problem that we see in our medical centre. More than 95% of hair thinking in men is due to male androgen hormone. The hair follicles on the vertex and frontal line is more sensitive to dehydrotestosterone (DHT) and it causes thinning and hair loss. The hair around the head and back of the head are more resistant and stays for long period of time in life.

How much hair have I lost and how far will it go?

At one point the head has Terminal Hair which are strong and fully grown hair, Vellus hair are fine and thin hair that will eventually fall and zone of absent hair. The hair loss in men begins in the temple area followed by receding frontal hair line. Then a patch of hair loss appears in the crown region. Eventually the crown and frontal region baldness join leaving a rim of hair around the head. It is easy to find out the degree of hair loss you are suffering by looking at the pictures in the scale below.

What are your options to restore hair?

The hair from the rim and back of the head can be transplanted in the balding area.

There are three methods:

  • ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplantation
  • FUT- or FUS-Follicular Unit Strip
  • FUE-Follicular Unit Extraction

What is ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplantation?

It is the first and only Robotic Hair Transplant System that harvests high quality hair follicles automatically using a robotic system in a precise and controlled manner. The digital mapping system of the robot allows precise harvesting of grafts with intact roots and minimal tissue that can be implanted in the desired area of the face and head. It precisely selects high quality grafts and skips old scars and previously harvested sites.

ARTAS Robot is also used for planning and creating implantation sites. It has the capability to create a 3 Dimensional model of the head to plan the exact hair line, density, angulation, direction and pattern of hair required in a particular person. The Robot creates sites with precision and speed in a very natural manner. It also skips existing hair making it easy to increase density without damaging existing hair.

What are the advantages of ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplantation?

  • No incisions or stitching required
  • Minimal pain and swelling
  • Uses best quality of hair
  • Eliminates tiredness, fatigue and potential errors of the surgeon
  • Computerized mapping and site planning possible
  • Fast recovery

How is the procedure performed?

Donor area selection
The donor area is the back of the head and sides of the head that will grow hair permanently without getting affected by hormones. A densitometry is performed to detect the density of existing hair. An estimate of possible number of grafts is established.

Recipient site selection and planning
This is the bald areas of the scalp. The areas are divided as frontal hair line, vertex, crown and temple areas. The sites are marked and photographs are taken.

ARTAS Hair Studio
This is an advanced feature of ARTAS Robot System. A 3D photograph based simulation is performed to see the potential result in an individual. The number of grafts, density, angulation and pattern is finalized along with the patient.
