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.

Hair Transplant with FUE Requires Good Health and Realistic Expectations
Understanding How Robotic Hair Transplant Works
Introducing the ARTAS robotic hair restoration system, a state-of-the-art tool that provides a better patient experience and impressive results. With ARTAS, Dr. Galitzin can graft more hair during each treatment while minimizing your discomfort and recovery time.
Why We Choose ARTAS
The ARTAS system by Restoration Robotics, Inc. is the only robotic hair transplantation technology approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for safe, effective hair loss treatment. Using this robotic technology allows Dr. Galitzin to reduce the risk 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 hair restoration consultation, Dr. Galitzin can design a treatment plan and demonstrate your potential results. These images can help you decide whether FUE treatment with robotic technology can help you meet your desired expectations.
The Only FDA-Approved System Of It’s Kind

Easier Treatment, Better Outcome
“With FUE hair transplant, you can achieve fuller hair, a restored hairline, and a rejuvenated appearance with less discomfort and a reduced recovery time.”
What to Expect During Hair Transplantation
The first step involves a thorough consultation and examination of your scalp. Dr. Galitzin will answer all of your questions and listen to your needs to determine whether FUE or other treatments are right for you.
We use anesthesia to provide a virtually pain-free experience.
Although we will use local anesthesia during your hair restoration procedure to ensure your comfort, you will remain fully awake. Most patients describe FUE hair restoration as a virtually pain-free experience.
Dr. Galitzin and his highly trained staff will upload the proposed hairline design to the software system. Using intelligent algorithms, the program 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.
Under the control of Dr. Galitzin, the system will accurately extract the follicular units without damaging the surrounding healthy hair before transplanting the grafts to the desired area.
Once the units are placed, Dr. Galiztin will clean and prepare the area for recovery. Our patients can expect dramatic hair growth and natural-looking results in the months following the hair transplant.
Versatile Styling and Lasting Results
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 hair transplant treatment.
Most patients see noticeable, significant hair growth within six months. As your hair continues to grow, you will see optimal results*. Transplanted hair using follicular unit extraction 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 hair restoration procedures can address these areas.
The Recovery Process
Because this hair transplant 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.
Even with the reduced recovery time, you may experience mild itchiness or discomfort in the first few days of recovery. These symptoms can be managed with over-the-counter medications, but patients should not use remedies that need to be applied to the skin. To ensure the recovery goes smoothly, patients should also be careful to:
- Avoid scratching the scalp and donor area for the first two weeks
- Not wash or submerge the scalp in water for two days following the procedure
- Not rub the scalp directly when washing your hair after the initial two-day period
- Stop smoking or using tobacco products, which can impair your recovery
- Avoid hair products, dyes, and haircuts for at least two weeks
Dr. Galitzin will provide a full list of instructions on how to take care of the scalp after your FUE procedure.
