How im­por­tant is a full head of hair for a man? Hair loss has a sig­nif­i­cant psy­choso­cial im­pact on men. 68% of bald­ing men feel help­less about their hair loss. 73% of bald­ing men feel they are less at­trac­tive than they were when they had hair. Un­for­tu­nately, many men do not voice their dis­tress or know the ben­e­fits of the per­ma­nent, nat­u­ral so­lu­tion that hair restora­tion of­fers. Men who un­dergo hair restora­tion feel more con­fi­dent and feel as if they’ve re­gained their youth­ful look. When and where was Restora­tion Ro­bot­ics Inc. es­tab­lished? Restora­tion Ro­bot­ics, Inc. is head­quar­tered in Sil­i­con Val­ley, Cal­i­for­nia (San Jose, CA). The Com­pany was founded in 2002 with the mis­sion to trans­form the hair restora­tion pro­ce­dure by de­liv­er­ing great re­sults and im­prov­ing the pa­tient ex­pe­ri­ence. Where are you based in the UK? There are clin­ics in Lon­don, Manch­ester and through­out Europe that of­fer the AR­TAS Pro­ce­dure. Over­all, there are over 25 lo­ca­tions through­out Europe that of­fer this rev­o­lu­tion­ary hair restora­tion treat­ment. How does one go about ar­rang­ing a con­sul­ta­tion, and, af­ter hav­ing had a con­sul­ta­tion what is the wait­ing time for the AR­TAS Pro­ce­dure? Any­one in­ter­ested in hav­ing an AR­TAS Pro­ce­dure should con­tact a clinic near them and ar­range a con­sul­ta­tion ses­sion. Dur­ing the ap­point­ment, the physi­cian will as­sess the ex­tent of your bald­ness and the ar­eas of fu­ture hair loss. You and your physi­cian will dis­cuss and de­cide the aes­thetic goals of the hair restora­tion treat­ment. Us­ing the AR­TAS Hair Stu­dio, the physi­cian can even show you sim­u­lated re­sults of what you may look like af­ter an AR­TAS Pro­ce­dure. The AR­TAS Pro­ce­dure is usu­ally sched­uled within weeks of your con­sul­ta­tion ses­sion. What are the main ad­van­tages of the AR­TAS pro­ce­dure over more “tra­di­tional” hair trans­plant pro­ce­dures? The AR­TAS Pro­ce­dure pro­vides a min­i­mally in­va­sive ap­proach to a hair trans­plan­ta­tion that pro­vides an out­stand­ing nat­u­ral per­ma­nent re­sults. The key ad­van­tages over con­ven­tional tech­niques are: 1) no su­tures and no lin­ear scars on your scalp are re­quired; 2) faster re­cov­ery from pro­ce­dure so that you can re­sume your reg­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties within days; 3) less dis­com­fort and pain. How long does a typ­i­cal AR­TAS Pro­ce­dure last? An AR­TAS Pro­ce­dure takes ap­prox­i­mately 6- 8 hrs de­pend­ing on the size of the hair trans­plan­ta­tion ses­sion. The AR­TAS Ro­botic Sys­tem is used to har­vest the hair from the back of your scalp and also used for making the small How can one ex­pect to grow a full head of hair af­ter the AR­TAS Pro­ce­dure? Af­ter the AR­TAS Pro­ce­dure, the new hair that was im­planted will go through sev­eral growth phases. Pa­tients will no­tice new hair be­gin to grow at four months. By nine months af­ter the pro­ce­dure, pa­tients will no­tice a sig­nif­i­cant change in their look, as the hair will have fully grown out. Is there a typ­i­cal pa­tient for the AR­TAS Pro­ce­dure? The AR­TAS® Pro­ce­dure is be­ing per­formed in over 18 coun­tries all with men who have dif­fer­ent types of hair ---curly, straight, wavy— and skin types. There is no typ­i­cal pa­tient.
