Robotic Hair Restoration

Millions of people suffer from hair loss worldwide, whether as a result of genetics or the natural aging process. Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Adrian Yi helps men and women enjoy fuller, thicker hairlines with robotic hair restoration in the Los Angeles area. Using ARTAS® iX™ and NeoGraft®, the latest innovations in hair transplantation technology, Dr. Yi creates results that look natural even in the shortest hairstyles.

How Does Robotic Hair Restoration Work?

Robotic hair restoration is a modernized and advanced approach to follicular unit extraction (FUE). With FUE, individual follicular units of 2 to 3 hairs are extracted and transplanted from a donor area of thick hair, typically on the back of your head, to areas of thinning.

Unlike follicular unit transplantation surgery (FUT or “strip excision”), FUE does not leave a linear scar in the donor area. Instead, it uses small, circular incisions around each group of follicles to extract and transplant them.

What Are the Benefits of Robotic Hair Restoration?

Robotic hair restoration offers many benefits compared to other methods, including:

  • Minimal discomfort and downtime
  • Local anesthesia only
  • Shorter treatment time
  • Natural-looking results
  • Long-lasting restoration
  • No linear scars

Both men and women choose hair restoration to feel more confident and enjoy a younger, healthier look. Some choose to enhance their results with nonsurgical hair restoration or complete their look with anti-aging treatments such as dermal fillers or neurotoxins.

What Is ARTAS iX?

ARTAS iX is an advanced, FDA-cleared robotic hair transplantation platform that uses artificial intelligence to create natural-looking and long-lasting hair restoration results. The platform uses advanced imaging and AI to map out the best donor follicles to achieve lasting growth without sacrificing your donor area’s natural look. It then transplants the follicles into areas of thinning with both precision and speed, giving you a younger new look in a matter of hours.

What Is NeoGraft?

NeoGraft is a specialized, FDA-cleared device that combines manual FUE with automated, robotic precision. Dr. Yi uses this device to harvest follicles from your donor area and transplant them to places where your hair has thinned. It offers faster, more accurate results than manual FUE while allowing for total customization. Like ARTAS iX procedures, these treatments take between 3 and 8 hours.

What Is Recovery Like After Robotic Hair Restoration?

After your procedure, you can expect some redness and swelling for a few days. Most people return to work and their usual activities within a week or 2.

About 3 to 4 weeks after your procedure, the transplanted follicles will fall out, making way for new growth. Over the next few months, your hair will grow back and create a fuller, thicker, more attractive hairline.

How Long Do Robotic Hair Restoration Results Last?

Robotic hair restoration results are long-lasting. Your transplanted follicles will continue to grow naturally with the rest of your hair for years to come.
