The ARTAS hair transplant is a minimally invasive robotic hair transplant procedure used to restore hair loss in men and women. The ARTAS System utilizes precision robotics and intelligent algorithms to perform the follicular unit excision (FUE) method.

The average cost of the ARTAS Hair Transplant is $7,900. ARTAS hair transplant pricing in the United States can range anywhere from $7,000 to $18,000, with most centers charging per graft rather than per session. This can be as high as $15 a graft.
The ARTAS hair transplant provides natural-looking and permanent results that last. New hair growth can be seen as soon as 3 months, and will continue to show substantial growth over the course of the year. The most noticeable ARTAS results are seen at about 6 months.

ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant FAQ

A robotic hair transplant is a surgical hair restoration procedure where hair is removed and transplanted under robotic control. ARTAS robotic hair transplant utilizes advanced digital-imaging and intelligent algorithms to improve the speed, accuracy and consistency of manuel hair transplantations.

ARTAS vs. NeoGraft: Both hair transplant procedures incorporate the follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique. NeoGraft is a manual handheld device that assists in extracting and transplanting hair follicles, while ARTAS is an automated robotic system that performs the procedure with guidance from the surgeon.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is one of two common techniques used in hair transplantations. The FUE hair transplant method utilizes naturally occurring follicular units to promote new hair growth. A follicular unit simply refers to 1-4 hair follicles that grow together out of a single pore.

The ARTAS robotic hair transplant cost can range anywhere from $7,000 to $18,000, with most hair transplant centers charging per hair graft rather than per session. Patients can be charged as high as $15 per graft.

Unlike most centers around the United States, we charge per session rather than per graft. By doing pricing this way, we’re able to put 100% of our focus on creating the ideal hairline for maximum hair growth. This ensures we harvest as many hair grafts as necessary to achieve the thickest results possible in one session. On average, the ARTAS hair transplant procedure costs about $7,900 at our center.

The ARTAS hair transplant is a virtually painless procedure; however, local anesthesia will be applied to the donor and recipient areas in order to reduce any trace of discomfort for the patient. Most patients report little to no pain during and after the procedure.

The ARTAS hair transplant is a suitable hair restoration option for both men and women. It’s ideal for patients who prefer to wear their hair short or require minimal activity restriction following the procedure. Robotic hair transplant may not be suitable for those in advanced stages of hair loss.
The ARTAS robotic hair transplant is a minimally invasive procedure with minimal side effects. Patients may experience slight swelling and redness after the ARTAS hair transplant procedure that will completely heal over the next 1 to 2 days.
Only hair in the donor area will need to be trimmed to the appropriate length (1mm) for the ARTAS robotic hair transplant. This provides the computer imaging system with the most accurate results for identifying, tracking and harvesting each hair graft.
The ARTAS hair transplant recovery time is less than most cosmetic procedures. Since no suturing is required, patients are able to enjoy a speedy recovery. Most patients are able to return back to their normal schedule almost immediately.
ARTAS hair transplant results are permanent. Hair follicles transplanted from the donor area are not affected by the same hair loss conditions. Once hair is transplanted to the area affected by hair loss, hair growth will continue identically to those still found in the donor area.
