KUWAIT: Dr Reemklinic, announced in a press conference yesterday the installation of ARTAS – the first hair transplant Robotic System in Kuwait. The ARTAS Robotic System is the first and only FDA-cleared, physician-controlled, computer-assisted technology for hair transplantation. Artas’ advanced technologies provide accurate results, enabling patients to view and adjust the outcome prior to the procedure. This technology has eliminated the drawbacks typically associated with traditional transplant methods, opening the door for a new age of hair transplant procedures.
This cutting edge technology gives patients the exact result they are seeking. This is achieved using an advanced virtual hair studio program, which enables patients to view and adjust the final outcome they want. Hair is transplanted without stitches or noticeable scarring, and recovery time is fast, with most people returning to work or other activities immediately after the procedure.
Artas’ superiority is driven by its accuracy in selecting and harvesting the healthiest grafts, which is vital for a successful hair transplant procedure. Advanced algorithms are employed to analyze each hair follicle, in order to select the healthiest grafts, increasing the chances of their regrowth. The robot’s flexible arm then starts to accurately harvest, targeting each follicle in its optimum angle, to ensure harvesting a healthy follicle, with the surrounding tissue needed for regrowth in the recipient area.
Artas’ innovative approach to hair transplantation starts during the consultation stage. Using photographs of the patient’s head, ARTAS Hair Studio Technology creates a customized 3D model of the transplant design, allowing the patient to see and adjust the end results beforehand. Because every patient’s requirements are different, ARTAS Hair Studio Technology enables the physician to show the patient the final outcome, including number of hair grafts required, direction of the implanting final hair style, enabling the physician to achieve the results the patient wants, eliminating any guesswork.
Artas’s advanced technologies offer patients an unpreceded accuracy in designing and implementing the desired result. A virtual hair studio that shows the patient the end result, a digitized harvesting as per the approved design, a robotic site creation, all combine to produce an accurate result that is identical to the virtual pictures shown to the patient.
Using high-resolution digital imaging, the ARTAS Robotic System extends physician capability, removing the potential for human error attributable to fatigue. The physician-assisted technology uses state-of-the art image guidance and intelligent algorithms to optimize individual follicular unit harvesting, resulting in precise procedures and consistent results. Physicians can harvest thousands of follicular units from the surrounding needed tissues in a single session, performing the procedure with uniformed results. The ARTAS Robotic System has reached the 30 million follicle milestone all over the world.
