The growing popularity of Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) hair transplants has inspired significant technological advances in the field of hair transplant surgery – the FDA-cleared ARTAS® Robotic (FUE) System being an important one.
The ARTAS® Robotic System is the first and only robotic (FUE) transplant system that utilizes an optical guidance system to identify, locate and extract your follicular units and restore hair growth under your surgeon’s guidance during the all-important donor harvesting step of a hair transplant procedure. It is a state-of-the-art robotic technology created to eliminate the guesswork and fatigue associated with manual handheld methods, along with the scarring, complications, and downtime of existing invasive surgical techniques.

You’ll have natural-looking hair – your own hair – that you can wear in any style with confidence.

  • Visualizes the surface of the scalp in three dimensions with micron-level precision.
  • Stereo digital imaging maps each follicular unit coordinates, angle orientation, and direction.
  • Determines the density and distribution of follicular units.
  • At 50 times a second, monitors and updates distinct parameters of each and every follicular unit.
  • Intelligent algorithms set the alignment and depth for individual follicular unit harvesting.
  • Calculated angle of approach minimizes transections by the two-needle system.

The advanced digital imaging analyzes and tracks each hair to preserve the natural look of your donor. Customized punch sizes of 1.0mm, 0.9mm or 0.8, are selected by your surgeon according to the character and quality of your hair. Smaller punches may shorten healing times, decrease donor scarring and help to minimize any potential damage to neighboring follicles.

Currently, 4 prong punches are used to more precisely incise the tissue and harvest the hair grafts. This minimally invasive procedure does not leave a linear scar, so you have the freedom to cut and style your hair without any worries. It has been praised for its speed, accuracy, and faster recovery time compared to older techniques. Once the healthy hair follicles have been robotically extracted from the back of the head, they are meticulously placed into the recipient sites your surgeon has created in your thinning and balding areas. Those with thinning hair or balding at the top or front of their head are good candidates for the ARTAS® hair transplant. 

Dr. Ziering was the first hair transplant surgeon to purchase and launch ARTAS® Robotic System in the US and to introduce it to Europe. He was the first hair transplant surgeon to break the 2000, 3000 and 3500 graft harvest thresholds and the first to perform a robotic FUE procedure with a female patient, an African American patient and the long hair robotic FUE procedure. Ziering Medical of Beverly Hills and New York are beta centers for the ongoing development and refinement of this exciting technology. Frequently tapped to teach and train surgeons on the ARTAS® Robotic System, Dr. Ziering has recommended and contributed many upgrades and improvements to this evolving technology.

Another feature of the ARTAS® Robotic System is its ability to create recipient sites, following the unique plan and design of the hair transplant you have discussed with your surgeon. If this option is applied, your surgeon will create the recipient sites for your hairline and the ARTAS® Robotic System is employed to automate recipient site creation throughout the frontal zone behind the hairline.

For larger surgical cases (1500 + grafts), we perform this procedure over two consecutive days. On the first day your donor area is shaved down and the recipient sites are created which takes approximately 3 – 4 hours. This provides our surgical team with a more accurate prediction of the grafts needed to harvest while giving our patients a visual demonstration of where the grafts will be placed. Another key benefit is this jumpstarts the healing process, releasing growth factors into the zones where recipient sites have been created. The following day, we begin robotically harvesting the grafts first thing in the morning which assists with maximizing the harvest, managing the time required to complete the procedure, maintaining the patient’s comfort, and reducing the amount of out-of-body time  for the grafts increasing graft survivability. With the ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant System Procedure, your surgeon utilizes advanced digital technology and precision robotics to give you fuller, healthy looking hair.

Dr. Ziering has received the ARTAS Clinical Excellence Award each year since 2013 for his work with Robotic FUE Hair Transplant.
