The ARTAS® Robotic System

This technology is a state-of-the-art medical device that safely and effectively extracts hair for transplantation. With over 10 years of research and development and cleared by Health Canada and other international regulatory bodies, the ARTAS Robotic System is rigorously tested to deliver outstanding hair restoration results in an outpatient procedure.

The ARTAS Robotic System uses advanced digital imagery to map and analyze the hair in its natural groupings on the scalp. These natural groupings of hair are called follicular units. The ARTAS Robotic System’s precision robotics allow for the precise extraction of intact follicular units for transplantation. Follicular units are removed in a random fashion, within the existing hair, so those areas of the scalp maintain their natural appearance.

The ARTAS procedure achieves higher hair density by transferring follicular units from the back or sides of the head to balding regions. This essential step is performed by a team of experienced surgical assistants that meticulously move the follicular units harvested by the robot to the balding areas, following the plan of treatment that has been agreed upon with the surgeon in order to give the patient the most natural appearance.
