Hair Restoration Services in the Twin Cities
Whether you’re experiencing male pattern baldness or are losing strands due to stress, hormonal changes, alopecia, or other causes, semi-automated or robotic hair restoration may be right for you. At Arijai Aesthetics, we offer both the ARTAS® and the NeoGraft® – two highly effective, minimally invasive hair restoration procedures that deliver permanent, natural results.
- Minimally invasive, maximally effective. ARTAS® and NeoGraft® hair treatments do not involve linear incisions, yield clinically superior results, and are performed as in-office procedures using local anesthetic only.
- Minimal discomfort and scarring.
- Precision placement, natural results.
What Is Robotic Hair Restoration?
Both ARTAS® and NeoGraft® use minimally invasive follicular unit extraction (FUE) to harvest individual hair follicles from areas of the scalp rich in healthy follicles. Those follicles are then meticulously implanted into balding and thinning areas on the head in a natural distribution pattern to improve hair density and volume throughout the transplant area(s).
Unlike invasive, manual follicular unit transplant (FUT) procedures that harvest a strip of skin containing healthy hair follicles, FUE harvests singular follicles and is either partially or fully automated. This not only lessens discomfort during the extraction and transplantation process but also reduces procedure time, increases graft survival rate, and minimizes post-transplantation downtime.
ARTAS vs. NeoGraft: What’s the Difference?
ARTAS® Robotic Hair Restoration
ARTAS® is a fully automated hair restoration procedure performed by a biomedical robot. It relies on artificial intelligence, advanced digital imaging, and 3D mapping to meticulously extract, analyze, and transplant healthy hair follicles.
Using software algorithms, 3D mapping, high-resolution cameras, and a robotic arm, the ARTAS device both plans and executes the hair restoration procedure. Because it’s fully automated, this method of hair restoration eliminates the potential for human fatigue and error associated with highly invasive, manual transplant procedures.
NeoGraft® Hair Restoration
NeoGraft® hair restoration is a semi-automated procedure performed by a skilled hair transplant surgeon using a hand-held device. The procedure itself works almost exactly like fully robotic hair transplantation because it also uses follicular unit extraction.
However, since the growth direction of hair follicles isn’t always predictable, human judgment may be necessary to identify and address unexpected growth patterns. Because NeoGraft isn’t fully automated, it allows for human insight and cosmetic artistry that only an expert transplant surgeon can provide.
What Kind of Results Can You Expect From Robotic Hair Restoration?
After undergoing ARTAS® or NeoGraft® hair restoration, you can resume your normal activities and hair care routine within approximately seven to 10 days. The grafted hairs will gradually begin to shed over a period of several weeks, and hair regrowth will begin to appear two to three months after the procedure.
It may take up to a year for your final results to become visible, and those results can last indefinitely. Because the transplanted follicles were harvested from areas of healthy growth, the new hair growth will not be susceptible to the pattern of thinning that originally occurred. Most patients enjoy fuller, thicker growth for many years after undergoing an FUE hair transplant procedure.
It’s important to note, however, that while semi-automated and robotic hair transplants produce clinically superior results, they cannot stop the natural aging process. New hair loss can still occur over time after any hair restoration procedure.
