How Does Manual FUE Compare to ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant?

Your hair is one of your most treasured assets. So, when it starts to disappear, you may feel less than optimistic about your appearance. If you have noticed balding or thinning areas on your head, it is important to stay informed about your options. The hair loss professionals at Aesthetic Scalp offer a superior hair restoration technique known as follicular unit extraction (FUE).

Patients have several options for FUE, including manual and robotic procedures. Our clinic is proud to suggest the ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant system to achieve results. No other method offers as many benefits in comparison. To learn about the advantages of ARTAS and schedule a consultation, call board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Anil Shah and board-certified physician Dr. Sameea Chughtai in Chicago, IL.

Candidates for hair loss treatment

People will do anything to stop thinning hair or a receding hairline. When toupees and drugstore medications are not effective, FUE may be a solution. Modern technology, like FUE, allows us to harvest healthy hair follicles from a donor region and remove all giveaway signs of transplants. Candidates for hair loss procedures are men and women of many ages and hair types. This technique can even be performed on individuals with short hair or at an advanced stage of baldness.

Robotic hair transplant vs FUE

Manual FUE requires small, handheld tools to transplant individual hair follicles. While you can get great results using manual techniques, there are so many more advantages to getting a robotic FUE hair transplant. ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration is currently the only hair restoration robot in Chicago, IL that offers the following benefits:

  • No scarring: FUE does not require taking a strip of hair from the donor area, which means there will be no linear scar in the back of your head

  • Fast recovery: Since the procedure is minimally invasive, many people return to work shortly after their hair restoration procedure

  • Short hairstyles: Since FUE does not leave behind a scar, patients have more flexibility in how they wear their hair

  • Natural outcomes: Our team can create a realistic hairline that is comparable to a natural head of hair

  • Custom results: Aesthetic Scalp can combine your procedure with a regenerative technique known as PRP therapy to encourage long-term hair growth

FUE treatment and recovery

During the robotic FUE hair transplant, Aesthetic Scalp typically uses the back of the scalp as the donor region. Our specific application depends on the amount of hair loss involved, as well as your cosmetic goals. Afterward, we can provide you with guidelines to clean and care for the treated areas. While some scabbing is expected after hair loss treatment, they will naturally flake away over time. The great news is that following recovery, the new transplants are expected to last a lifetime.
