Greater Precision & a Shorter Recovery
Dr. Galitzin uses the ARTAS® system, a robotic transplant unit, to perform follicular unit extraction, or FUE. Dr. Galitzin and his staff have undergone training and certification to offer this innovative hair transplant technology to patients. Benefits over other techniques, such as strip harvesting (also known as follicular unit transplant or FUT), include:
The FUE robotic system uses an intelligent algorithm to carefully choose only the best hairs to harvest from the scalp. This approach also involves a far lower risk of human error, which is much more likely to affect FUE when manual extraction techniques are used.
Faster Treatment Time
More precise harvesting and hair transplant techniques mean the entire procedure is much more efficient. This allows Dr. Galitzin to achieve comparable–if not better–results in a much shorter amount of time.
Less Discomfort during the Procedure
Unlike traditional hair transplant methods, which require the removal of a strip of the scalp, FUE is minimally invasive. We apply a local anesthetic before precisely extracting the hair follicles in order to keep patients comfortable throughout their hair transplant procedure.
Minimal Recovery Time
Most patients can expect to return to work just one or two days following FUE hair transplantation. Since FUT is a lengthier, more invasive hair transplant procedure, it generally requires a much longer recovery period.
No Linear Scar, Stitches, or Staples
This type of hair transplantation only requires small groupings, or follicular units, of hair. The small circular incisions may result in tiny, white scars, but these can easily be concealed even with short hair.
Lowered Risk of Complications
The minimally invasive nature of this hair transplant technique naturally lowers the risk of complications, such as numbness, prolonged discomfort or bleeding, infection, and poor outcomes.
