A robotic system that uses a 2-step removal process may increase the accuracy and speed of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplants. The FUE method of hair restoration may have been streamlined and improved with the addition of a robotic system called ARTAS.
Follicular Unit Extraction system is a 4-step procedure:
- Separation of the follicular units from the surrounding tissue
- Actual extraction of follicular units (done manually with forceps)
- Creation of the recipient's new site (making the holes in which the grafted follicular units will be placed)
- Actual implantation of the grafted of the grafted follicular units
