Toss out the bad toupees. A new hair restoration procedure, controlled by a physician, uses a robotic arm and digital mapping to extract hairs from the back of the head for transplants. The ARTAS System is touted as helping doctors harvest hair follicles more quickly and precisely than when it’s done manually.
“The ARTAS System is an excellent solution to hair loss that is less invasive and offers a quicker recovery time while maintaining natural, permanent results,” said Dr. Craig Ziering of Newport Beach and Beverly Hills, who last year became the second doctor in the world to use the technology.
