Hair Restoration Q & A

What is involved in hair restoration?

Hair restoration involves selecting hair from a donor area on your body and transplanting it to the bald or thinning area of your head. The idea is to provide a permanent solution to hair loss that looks and feels natural, blending in with the existing hair for a flawless finish.

Dr. Din and his team use the world’s only robotic hair transplant technology, the ARTAS Robotic System. ARTAS uses image-guided robotics that, assisted by Dr. Din, select and dissect hairs and follicles ready for transplant. ARTAS is able to perform this task thousands of times over in one session, enabling Dr. Din to carry out hair restoration procedures more quickly and with superior precision.

What are the advantages of having hair restoration using ARTAS?

There are significant advantages to having your hair restoration treatment using the ARTAS Robotic System. ARTAS uses intelligent algorithms to identify the best hairs and harvests them in such a way that the donor area retains its natural appearance. Hair grafting quality is more consistent than could be achieved manually, and the two-step dissection system ensures scarring is kept to a minimum.

Dr. Din has a clear view of the donor and graft areas through the high-resolution digital imaging, which assists him by:

  • Visualizing the scalp in three dimensions
  • Using micron-level precision
  • Mapping coordinates, angle orientation, and direction of each hair
  • Determining hair density and distribution
  • Monitoring each hair and updating its parameters 60 times a second
  • Setting the depth and alignment for harvesting
  • Calculating the angle of approach to minimize transections

​Using ARTAS, Dr. Din can harvest hairs for transplant far more accurately and at greater speeds than would be possible by hand. The robotic arm is highly maneuverable, able to precisely position itself at the optimum angle for needle alignment, and able to adjust itself if you move during the procedure.

How long will it take for the transplanted hair to grow?

Once you’ve completed your hair restoration treatment, the transplanted hair follicles have to heal and commence a new growth cycle. This process can take several months, over which time you’ll see your hair gradually beginning to grow. After six months, you should be seeing the growth of thicker, natural looking, permanent hair.
