Hair loss affects approximately two-thirds of men over the age of 35 and can greatly impact your appearance and self-confidence. In order to address this common concern, Dr. Joseph Galitzin offers follicular unit extraction, or FUE hair transplant, at his practice in Peachtree City, GA. Skin Care at 5th Ave. uses the ARTAS® system, a robotic transplant unit which can achieve incredibly lifelike results for both men and women. Dr. Galitzin and his staff have undergone training and certification to offer this innovative in-office technology to patients. Compared to traditional techniques, robotic methods combined with FUE are less invasive and provide more predictable, aesthetic effects.
FUE is an alternative to traditional techniques such as follicular unit transplantation (FUT). During the process, a physician-assisted robotic punch individually extracts groups of hair follicles. This allows the patient to avoid the surgical removal of a strip of hair. Compared to strip harvesting, FUE with ARTAS technology offers:
Rather than manually transplanting your hair, Dr. Galitzin can use the ARTAS system to precisely target the best hairs for harvesting and complete a greater number of grafts per session. The technique can be used to address hair loss due to various causes.
The ARTAS system by Restoration Robotics, Inc. is the only robotic hair transplant technology approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for safe, effective hair loss treatment. Using ARTAS robotic technology allows Dr. Galitzin to reduce the probability of human error, guesswork, and fatigue associated with manual transplantation methods, resulting in more accurate, consistent, and efficient outcomes.
ARTAS is also equipped with Hair Studio® technology to simulate 3-D before and after images. During your consultation, Dr. Galitzin can design a treatment plan and demonstrate your potential results. These images can help you decide whether FUE treatment can help you meet your desired expectations.
Although we will use local anesthesia during your procedure to ensure your comfort, you will remain fully awake. Most patients describe FUE as a virtually pain-free experience. Dr. Galitzin and his trained staff will upload the proposed hairline design to the ARTAS system. Using intelligent algorithms, ARTAS will identify the best hairs for transplantation and accurately extract the follicular units without damaging the surrounding, healthy hair. Under the control of Dr. Galitzin, the system will then transplant the hair into thinning areas. The result is an evenly distributed transplant site that looks completely natural.
With FUE and the ARTAS system, you can achieve fuller hair, a restored hairline, and a rejuvenated appearance with less discomfort and a reduced recovery time.
As the procedure is minimally invasive and does not require surgery, stitches, or staples, you can enjoy a dramatically reduced recovery time. Most patients are able to return to work within one or two days following the procedure.
Unlike strip harvesting, there is no linear scar remaining after FUE. This allows you to cut and style your hair however you choose once you are fully healed. Dr. Galitzin will provide instructions on how to care for your hair in the months following treatment. Most patients see noticeable, significant hair growth within six months. As your hair continues to grow, you will see optimal results. Transplanted hair is not susceptible to the same conditions that likely caused your initial hair loss so the results are permanent. However, if you continue to lose more non-transplanted hair, touch-up procedures can address these areas.
Do not allow hair loss to continue affecting your quality of life. With FUE and the ARTAS system, you can achieve fuller hair, a restored hairline, and a rejuvenated appearance with less discomfort and a reduced recovery time.
