Will A Robotic Hair Transplant Restore Your Receding Hairline?

Most men and women will suffer from hair loss at some point. Hair plugs and over-the-counter solutions tend to cause less than satisfying results. Hair transplant options, like follicular unit transplantation (FUT), can also leave patients with visible scars. Instead, the hair restoration specialists at Aesthetic Scalp offer robotic hair transplants for patients with a receding hairline in Chicago, IL.

Aesthetic Scalp performs a cutting-edge technique known as follicular unit extraction (FUE) with the ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant System. This system provides long-lasting and natural results without plugs or scars. Speak with double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Anil Shah or board-certified doctor Dr. Sameea Chughtai to discover how this robotic technology works at our clinic.

Should I get follicular unit extraction?

In the past, people addressed hair loss through drugstore products that come in liquid, foam, and shampoo forms. More invasive techniques include hair plugs or other obvious-looking fixes. Now, hair restoration experts use techniques like follicular unit extraction to harvest healthy follicles from a donor site.

During FUE, hair is carefully taken from the sides and the back of the head and then surgically implanted in the areas of hair loss. A robotic hair transplant provides significant advantages over other traditional methods. The ARTAS robotic system makes the process more precise, which means you won’t notice signs of surgery or scars.

Preparing for robotic hair transplant

ARTAS technology is great for hair loss candidates with hereditary androgenic alopecia, male pattern baldness, a receding hairline, or thinning hair. The professionals at Aesthetic Scalp can let you know how to prepare for a robotic hair transplant. Before treatment can begin, the donor area may need to be trimmed or shortened. We may also ask that you wear a button-down shirt to avoid pulling your top over your head.

How we harvest hair follicles

During hair restoration treatment, the ARTAS robotic system can almost immediately identify and analyze the healthiest hair grafts for harvesting. This gives patients the best chance of success after their FUE procedure. Once the follicles are taken from the donor area, they are transplanted into the recipient site. This part requires a skilled hair transplant surgeon. Aesthetic Scalp in Chicago ensures the process is as comfortable and pain-free as possible.

About your hairline design

One of the most important parts of follicular unit extraction is making sure the outcomes appear natural and full. At Aesthetic Scalp, our specialists design the ideal hairline based on your individual scalp patterns. We can also determine the right density and direction of the hair follicles so your cosmetic goals can be achieved. During your initial hair consultation, we can discuss what you can expect from treatment.

FUE recovery and results

Due to the minimally invasive nature of the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System, patients can return to their normal schedules within the next few days. The transplanted hair follicles should be long-term, as long as you follow our recommendations and recovery instructions at Aesthetic Scalp. Patients can then enjoy a fuller and thicker head of hair without the appearance of a receding hairline.
