You are probably aware of the various options available for hair restoration, such as hair transplant surgery, Rogaine®, and Propecia®. The team here at our New York City and Boston hair transplant surgery center are excited by some recent news about a helpful tool for hair restoration: the ARTAS system. The ARTAS™ System has recently been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which means yet another way to restore a fuller head of hair is available to patients.

First of all, it should be noted that the ARTAS™ System is not for everyone. The ARTAS™ System can only be used on men who have black or dark brown hair that is straight rather than curly. For people who don’t fit this profile, other optional tools for effective hair restoration are available, though technological advancements in the future may result in similar advances in hair regrowth and replacement systems.

So how does the ARTAS™ System work, you may be wondering. Well the ARTAS™ System is not a procedure or treatment in and of itself but rather a means by which hair restorations specialists can improve hair transplant surgery. The ARTAS™ System is a computer-assisted machine that helps with the selection of follicular units for hair transplant surgery. The follicular units identified by the ARTAS™ System will be of great quality, meaning better results when the hair transplant surgery is finally performed.

We’ll be looking into this system more as time goes forward and will be happy to discuss its many benefits with you during a visit to our office. During this consultation at our various offices throughout the east coast, we’ll be able to speak with you at length about a variety of topics, such as which hair restoration options will best meet your needs. We’ll also speak frankly about hair transplant costs in Boston, New York City, and New Jersey and recommend financing options or payment plans if you would like to ease the immediate financial burden of treatment.

To schedule a consultation or to learn more about the ARTAS™ System, contact our Boston and New York City hair restoration centers today. We look forward to speaking with you.
