In the realm of hair restoration, ARTAS robotic technology stands out as a clear leader. Utilizing a high degree of precision, ARTAS can produce exponentially more efficient results than manual FUE methods. With ARTAS’s digital imaging software, recovery time is significantly reduced, and there is no linear scarring as with other techniques. Each hair graft is meticulously harvested mechanically, so there is no possibility of human error. Dr. Hamawy is excited to offer hair restoration with ARTAS as part of his continued commitment to cutting-edge cosmetic solutions in a state-of-the-art setting.
What Is ARTAS?
With manual follicular unit extraction (FUE), the surgeon must spend hours laboriously harvesting donor hairs for transplant by hand. With ARTAS’ innovative robot-assisted process, hairs can be consistently and precisely extracted from the donor regions of the head, reducing downtime and improving your outcome. ARTAS’ artificial intelligence algorithms can accurately select the best quality hairs for grafting, calculate the best depth and angle of each follicular unit, and track the path of each follicle through the entire hair restoration process. With this level of detail, your result appears more natural and seamless. No scarring, sutures, or plugs are required.
The donor area is a region of the scalp that is unaffected by hair loss, typically the head’s back and sides. The recipient zone is usually the top or front of the scalp. The healthy hair grafts will be transplanted to the recipient site, where they will take root and slowly replenish the scalp with thick, youthful locks. Treatment is performed using local anesthesia and takes between 4 and 8 hours on average.

Who is a good candidate for ARTAS hair restoration?
ARTAS is suitable for both men and women struggling with hair loss, thinning hair, a receding hairline, or shedding. Robotic hair restoration with ARTAS may not be ideal for those who have already gone bald and have little to no donor hair available. We will help to determine if ARTAS is a good match for your goals during your confidential consultation with our team in New Jersey.
What can I expect from my recovery?
Thanks to its precision and micron-level accuracy, ARTAS is considered a non-invasive form of hair restoration and therefore comes with little downtime. There are no sutures required. Each hair graft is harvested individually with no visible scarring afterward. Minor “punch marks” left behind will close and fade over several days after your session. Patients typically return to their normal activities within 2-3 days.
