New Solutions To Fix Old Scars

Published on November 7, 2013 by

By Emina Karamanovski The only predictable thing about the human body is that it is unpredictable.  Scarring and the way we heal is one of those unpredictable human behaviors.  I have been observing variations in scar healing of hair-transplant patients for over 20 years. Medical procedures like other things in life, improve through trials and […]

Scarless or A Less Noticeable Procedure

Published on July 25, 2013 by

By Emina Karamanovski English is my third language. Learning languages taught me to pay attention to the meaning of words and probably forced me to become more precise in the way I use them. Follicular unit extraction or FUE have been described as a scarless procedure. The word scarless is misleading since cutting skin or […]

What Can the Robot Not Replace in Hair Restoration

Published on March 14, 2013 by

Robots are meant to perform repeated, technically precise work that a human hand cannot perform reliably. In this case the ARTAS Robotic FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technology does an incredible job at harvesting hairs with utmost precision in a distribution pattern that affords maximal camouflage in an individual who wants to keep his hair short.

Who is a Candidate for the ARTAS Robot and Who Is Not

Published on January 30, 2013 by

I hope that by reading my last few blogs that you do not believe that the Robot is ideal for all individuals interested in undergoing a hair transplant. I still believe the majority of men and particularly women do just fine with the traditional linear harvesting method. Because the hair needs to be shaved and […]

Shave and Non-shave FUE

Published on December 19, 2012 by

One of the biggest barriers to having the ARTAS Robotic FUE (follicular unit extraction) done is that you must shave your head down to 1 mm for the Robot to work. We will do that for you at the beginning of the procedure. Younger men who are used to wearing their hair short realize how […]

NEOGRAFT vs. ARTAS

Published on December 4, 2012 by

Although this blog is not intended to denigrate any manufacturer, it is intended to help the reader understand what went into my decision process to incorporate ARTAS over Neograft and other types harvesting methods for FUE.

ARTAS Robotic FUE System

Published on November 4, 2012 by

The ARTAS system is the latest in the development of the FUE (follicular unit extraction) method, also referred to as FUE Hair Transplant. Traditionally, a linear strip is taken from the back of the head and if done well (which I do), the incision should not be detectable unless the hair is shorn very close […]
