Balding is the ultimate fear of men all over the world. Those men who start to lose their hair very quickly at a younger age, or the ones who can’t bear to look at their bald spots every morning in the mirror no matter what their age is, look towards hair restoration. Hair restoration solutions range from “wonder” creams, vitamin mixtures, hair transplant surgeries, and wigs. And seriously, no one really wants to have to wear a wig all the time.
What if you found out that the robot lore of science fiction movies has now entered the arena of hair restoration, and said robot – named ARTAS – would like to harvest your hair for efficient transplantation?
Hair Transplantation And The Need For ARTAS
Hair transplants are popular among men of all ages. Transplant centers have been springing up everywhere and many males have reported satisfaction at their new heads of hair. Technology has been rapidly introducing new and better techniques, equipment, and methods; innovative doctors and surgeons have been coming up with improved ways of carrying out hair transplantation that are safer, less painful, and much more effective.
Enter ARTAS, the robotic machine that is image-guided and controlled by a human doctor. This robot is designed to help in the harvesting of hair follicles from the head of the patient which are then transplanted later by the normal manual procedures. This machine has already been given the go ahead by the Food and Drug Administration.
Restoration Robotics has indeed come up with the ultimate hair restoration system that will speed up the follicle harvesting step, reduce invasive procedures and require less human labor hovering around during the procedure.
How ARTAS Works
ARTAS system has various cameras, identification sensors, and a neat 3-D imaging software that carry out the mechanism of choosing hair follicles to pluck out. The patient rests in the machine’s chair and must not move during the process; his head is secured in place using straps. The hair of the patient is first chopped to just a millimeter in size.
The ARTAS machine has needle dermal punches which carry out the harvesting process. The dermal punches and cartridges used are all disposable. The punch mechanism is a dual-punch one with sharp and blunt punches for most efficacy. 5-10 cm areas of skin are exposed at a time to the robot puncher for working on.
The “punched” grafts are removed by the doctor and another skin patch is exposed to the robot for working on. When the robot’s work is complete, doctors move in to manually transplant the hair conventionally.
ARTAS is a great new machine; it:
- Remove hair follicles quicker than manual removal.
- Is not as invasive a procedure as strip harvesting.
- Reduces the need for greater human assistance staff.
ARTAS is so far only capable of working on hair that is straight, and is of black or brown color. Soon enough, this type of technology will be at the forefront of hair restoration programs and producing the best transplant results.
Want a human doctor? Even with ARTAS, there’s a human controlling the robot.
