What Are the Side Effects for Robotic Hair Transplant?

Hair loss can be the result of several factors, including genetics, hormonal changes, a medical condition, or a part of the natural aging process. Thankfully, there are now several innovative options for hair restoration, including robotic hair transplant procedures for follicular unit extraction (FUE). At Aesthetic Scalp, double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Anil Shah and board-certified physician Dr. Sameea Chughtai provide ARTAS® robotic hair transplants to Chicago, IL patients who are suffering from significant hair loss. With this advanced treatment, our skilled team can allow patients to feel more confident with restorative hair results.

What is ARTAS® robotic hair transplant?

ARTAS robotic hair transplant utilizes the innovative device with Artificial Intelligence (AI) for minimally invasive hair restoration. With the use of image-guided robotics, ARTAS can gain a more comprehensive view of hair growth in order to determine the best area to take donor hair grafts. The technology will then accurately place the grafted hair into the ideal position to create a personalized hairline that best fits each Chicago, IL patient. Not only does an ARTAS robotic hair transplant procedure protect your existing hair, but it will also transfer hair follicles to areas of hair loss for an optimal outcome. Hair growth will become noticeable around six months after your treatment at Aesthetic Scalp, and continual growth will continue to occur.

The results of robotic hair transplant procedures offer long-lasting hair growth, without the need for stitches or significant scarring to the scalp. With precision and accurate placement, the ARTAS technology can make FUE procedures less invasive and more effective for our Chicago, IL patients. Our team of experienced doctors at Aesthetic Scalp will work with patients to determine if they will be an optimal candidate for a robotic hair transplant procedure. They can then create a personalized treatment plan that will best fit each individual’s desired results and specialized needs.

What are the side effects of robotic hair transplant?

Like with any procedure, a robotic hair transplant with ARTAS can lead to some side effects. A few of these side effects can include scalp tightness that can linger after your procedure, as well as the potential for nerve injury at the area used for donating hair follicles. Additionally, some patients may experience scalp scabs or some scalp pain after treatment. However, in comparison to other methods of hair transplantation, robotic hair transplants can reduce the risk of human error and allow for more precise treatment. This leads to more consistent results and removes the need for sutures, staples, or stitches that could lead to further complications during recovery. During a comprehensive consultation at Aesthetic Scalp in Chicago, IL, our team of experienced doctors will discuss any possible side effects before determining if a robotic hair transplant is right for you.
