ARTAS Hair Transplant

What makes the ARTAS iX FUE Hair Restoration System different? It’s the only FDA-cleared robotic hair loss treatment that allows men to wear their hair as short as they want – with seamless results. There’s also no linear scarring, overharvesting, or physician fatigue.

This groundbreaking minimally invasive hair transplant procedure uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to deliver exceptional hair replacement. The ARTAS hair transplant surgery is virtually pain-free and effective, and the recovery is quick.

NeoGraft® Automated Hair Transplantation System

Using innovative technology, the NeoGraft system delivers a minimally invasive hair restoration procedure for men and women with natural-looking results, no visible linear scar, quick recovery time, and little to no downtime. Hair follicles are gently removed from a donor site and then implanted where you need them. Restore your hairline or add more hair to thinning patches with the state-of-the-art NeoGraft system.

PRP for Hair Loss

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentration of platelets in your own blood that contains regenerative growth factors. When used for hair loss, PRP releases these growth factors into the scalp to stimulate new natural hair growth and increase tissue repair to damaged follicles. PRP can be used as a standalone treatment to regenerate hair. It can also be added to a hair transplant procedure to help retain existing hair and improve the success of the implanted hair follicles.

Hair Restoration Frequently Asked Questions

Hair Transplant Philadelphia|The Lumen Center offers two of the most advanced hair transplant systems available. Lumen is the only hair transplant clinic in the Philly area to offer the revolutionary ARTAS iX robot – the latest technology in hair transplantation. We also offer the innovative NeoGraft device.

Older hair transplants often look obvious and unnatural, and the surgical strip method leaves a scar. Hair Transplant Philadelphia|The Lumen Center provides patients with the most advanced hair restoration technology that yields results that are completely natural-looking and undetected. Your new hair growth emerges gradually, reducing the chance that people will notice the procedure. Your receding hairline will slowly yet steadily disappear. Your friends and family will comment that you look better, but the results from your hair restoration are subtle and natural.

FUE stands for “follicular unit extraction.” The FUE method of hair transplantation removes individual hair follicles from the scalp in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1-4 hairs and are then placed in the areas of the scalp where balding has occurred. Both the ARTAS iX and NeoGraft systems deliver automation of the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method, the most advanced technique in the hair transplant industry.

FUE hair transplant is a very safe, minimally invasive, and relatively minor hair transplantation procedure.

  • Bleeding is minimal and there are fewer complications than with the “strip” method
  • Procedure is performed with local anesthetic and no intravenous or intra-muscular sedation is required
  • Patients experience minimal discomfort, no scalpel incision, no sutures, no linear scar, and quick recovery times

FUE is far superior method to Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), especially with the ARTAS iX and NeoGraft systems, because they produce natural-looking results that mimic the hairline. With no scalpel incision or stitches, there is no scarring, and recovery times are fast. Without a linear scar on the back of the head, you can wear even a short hairstyle.

The ARTAS iX and NeoGraft systems are both effective, but the ARTAS iX system has some important benefits for patients. This physician-guided robotic system harvests healthy hair grafts and ensures that no area is “over-harvested.” The 3D mapping feature is another incredible feature. However, NeoGraft is also effective and can often produce larger graft counts. There are benefits to both innovative systems, and the two are frequently used in combination to tailor treatment plans.

The ARTAS iX Robotic Procedure is a minimally invasive hair restoration solution that leverages digital imaging and precision robotics to harvest healthy grafts for transplantation. Unlike the earlier methods of hair restoration, there is no need for the surgical removal of a strip of scalp from the back and sides of the head, no linear scar left after surgery and no need for stitches or staples to close the wound. The benefit is a quick recovery time and the ability to return to normal activities and work sooner.

The NeoGraft Procedure is also a minimally invasive hair restoration solution that carefully extracts follicles individually and does not use strip harvesting. The grafts are gently removed and with “no touch” follicle implantation, they are safely and effectively delivered to the area with thinning hair.

The ARTAS iX Robotic and NeoGraft procedures use your own permanent growing hair, typically from the back of your head, and the follicles are then implanted to the thinning areas of your scalp. As this hair is not susceptible to the conditions that cause male pattern baldness, transplanted hair will last a lifetime.

The ARTAS iX Robotic Procedure usually takes from four to eight hours as determined by your doctor to achieve your hair restoration goals. You are comfortably seated during the process, and Dr. Kwak and staff are there with you to maximize your comfort throughout the procedure.

Recovery time with the ARTAS iX and NeoGraft procedures is less than with most surgical cosmetic procedures. As there is no surgical incision or stitches required, healing time is short. You can usually go back to your daily activities after a day or two and the donor site will heal in approximately a week. You will have a follow up visit the morning after the procedure to examine your scalp and to teach you how to take care of your newly implanted hair.

Transplanted hair grows naturally in phases. New hairs are seen about three months after the procedure and will continue to increase over the course of a full year. After approximately six months, you will enjoy a noticeable improvement and after a full year, you will see final results.

The FUE procedures offered at Hair Transplant Philadelphia|The Lumen Center are provided on an outpatient basis and require only a local anesthetic. The patient feels virtually no pain. Some patients can experience minor discomfort and swelling post-procedure, which subsides in 1-3 days.

The necessary grafting volume varies from person to person. To find out what to expect during your procedure, we invite you to schedule a free consultation at Hair Transplant Philadelphia|The Lumen Center.

Treatment costs will be determined during your consultation and depend on the amount of new hair you desire. We will discuss the procedure pricing as well as available payment options.

Hair Transplant for Men

Are you experiencing thinning hair or a receding hair line, and want a permanent, natural looking hair restoration solution? Thanks to the innovative ARTAS or NeoGraft Hair Transplant Systems, you can achieve incredible results without plugs, pain, or stitches typically associated with traditional strip hair transplant procedures. Feel years younger. Regain your confidence. We have the most advanced hair restoration options to help you look and feel your very best.

Hair Transplant for Women

Many women believe that hair transplants are exclusively for men and are pleasantly surprised to learn that women can also be good candidates for a hair transplant. Female pattern alopecia, also known as androgenic alopecia, is the most common type of hair loss in women. The innovative NeoGraft System is ideal for women who suffer from female pattern baldness and have sufficient donor areas that have been unaffected by hair loss.
