Both NeoGraft and Artas use the Follicular-Unit Excision (FUE) method of hair transplants. This method involves the removal of individual hair follicles from the donor site with no need for an incision.
Consequently, there is no linear scar left behind, and the patient can wear their hair much shorter. The patient will also require less healing time as no incision is made in the scalp.
Vinings Surgery Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove, provides Artas robotic hair restoration to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
Superiority of Robotic Precision over Human Hands
Hair transplant surgeons are using both Artas and NeoGraft. But irrespective of how skilled the surgeon is, human hands are not as steady or precise as a computer-controlled robot.
The human factor is a primary difference between the NeoGraft and the Artas robot. Most transplants require several hours, and human fatigue may set in. This can have a negative effect on the consistency of each individual graft. It may lead to poor growth due to low quality grafts.
Other than fatigue, experience is the other human factor at play. There is a learning curve to operate the robot. However, the very first punch with Artas is effective as the 100,000th punch. Throughout the process, the quality of the extractions remains consistent.
Developments in hair transplant technology allow patients to be assured that their hair will appear and feel as natural as possible following the procedure.
In addition, there is the safety concern of technician operated devices. The surgeon typically controls and monitors the robot’s movements from beginning to end in the Artas robotic transplant procedure. They will make sure that the patient receives top-notch care, along with the best outcomes possible.
Benefits of Artas System over Neograft
Artas refers to a robotic device that assists a doctor during a hair transplant procedure. NeoGraft is hand-operated, but Artas is controlled by a very specialized computer program as well as various technologies that make it extremely targeted.
Artas is a robotic assistant that replaces a human being in relation to dissecting the follicular units in the donor and creating the recipient sites. While the robot undertakes the surgery, surgeons control every single aspect of the robot during the procedure.
Before dissection, the robot automatically demarcates every hair follicle in the extraction area, which is known as the “grid.”
Artas then chooses donor hairs on the basis of the parameters established by the surgeon. The surgeon can program the robot to choose larger follicular units with two to three hairs or more single hair units, depending on the patient’s unique needs.
In addition, the surgeon determines the boundaries and spacing for the harvest site. This process enables the precise election of the best quality grafts, unlike NeoGraft.
The Artas robot can perform up to 1,000 grafts per hour. This is much quicker and more targeted than a human hand. Also, unlike human hands, the Artas robot does not feel tired. The grafts remain consistent throughout the procedure, and there is no impact on the grafts due to human fatigue as the harvest progresses on an hourly basis.
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove receives patients from Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and nearby areas for Artas robotic hair transplant treatment.
