The hair robot has arrived in Tampa, Florida. Ok first, why use a robot?
Well it’s pretty simple. A robot never gets tired. Sure, hair transplant can be fun but after harvesting a several hundred follicles the hand of a human gets a bit tired. Robots can gather hair follicles quicker and with less pain and in most cases less cost to the patient. This new robot plucks hair follicles from the back and sides of the head so they can be moved to the top and front of balding areas.
It normally takes 5 to 6 hours to individually harvest, by hand, the 1,000 follicles needed to build a full head of hair. Hair surgery is time consuming. Most hair surgeons remove a whole strip of scalp and separate out the follicles under a microscope. Strip surgery is painful and takes weeks or months to heal versus just a couple of days’ healing time and less scarring with individual follicular-unit extraction. The new ARTAS robot decides which follicles to collect and plucks them out as the doctor stands by to check its work. The surgeon can watch from the same room or via a remote monitor.
Time passes quick as the robot does its thing. “It’s certainly less tedious than doing it by hand”. According to Roger Bassin MD of Tampa Hair MD the ARTAS robot system is a great innovation and can be used in many cases but for some patients Neograft is a better fit. But there is one thing for sure the ‘Strip Method ‘is gone forever. Today there is No more Scalpels and No more stitches and No more pain and if all that is not good enough ‘the patient heals way faster in just a couple days versus the weeks it used to take. Yes the cure for baldness is here today.
The ARTAS robot is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The ARTAS robotic hair transplant machine cost is $200,000, but because it saves the doctor time the cost to the patient is actually less than most other methods. Tampa Hair MD also offers the Neograft system these two systems are the highest technologies available. The Physicians and technicians at Tampa Hair MD are highly experienced. As any procedure practice really does make perfect.
Anyone can buy a Neograft or ARTAS machine. But who has the experience? Tampa Hair MD.
