ARTAS iX® Robotic FUE Hair Restoration Procedure in Philadelphia

The ARTAS iX system is an FDA-cleared, robotic hair restoration device. This groundbreaking minimally invasive hair transplant system is also known as robotic follicular unit extraction (RFUE) – a procedure that is essentially pain-free and does not involve the traditional incision of the scalp. The ARTAS delivers precise, natural-looking results without leaving a linear scar.

NeoGraft® Automated FUE Hair Transplantation Procedure in Philadelphia

Using innovative technology, the NeoGraft system delivers a minimally invasive hair restoration procedure for men and women in Philadelphia. With the FUE method, individual hair follicles are gently removed from a donor site and then implanted in recipient sites where you need them. NeoGraft utilizes an automated hand-piece, which gives patients little to no discomfort during the hair transplant procedure. The technology delivers natural-looking results, no visible linear scar, and a quick recovery time.

PRP for Hair Loss

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentration of platelets in your own blood that contains regenerative growth factors. When used for hair loss, PRP releases these growth factors into the scalp to stimulate new natural hair growth and increase tissue repair to damaged follicles. PRP can be used as a standalone treatment to regenerate hair. It can also be added to a hair transplant procedure to help retain existing hair and improve the success of the implanted hair follicles.

Hair Restoration Philadelphia
Frequently Asked Questions

The Lumen Center offers two of the most advanced hair transplant systems available. The Lumen Center is the only hair transplant clinic in the Philadelphia area to offer the revolutionary ARTAS iX robot – the latest technology in hair transplantation. We also offer the innovative NeoGraft device.

There are various types of hair transplant surgeries. Older hair transplants and strip surgery often look obvious and unnatural, and the surgical strip method leaves a scar. The Lumen Center provides Philadelphia patients with the most advanced, minimally invasive technology that yields results that are completely natural-looking and undetected. Your new hair grows in gradually, reducing the chance that people will notice the procedure. Your friends and family will comment that you look better, but the results from your hair restoration are subtle and natural.

FUE stands for “follicular unit extraction.” The FUE method of hair transplantation removes individual hair follicles from the scalp in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1-4 hairs and are then placed in the recipient areas of the scalp where balding has occurred. Both the ARTAS iX and NeoGraft systems deliver automation of the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method, the most advanced technique in the hair transplant industry.

FUE hair transplant is a very safe, minimally invasive, and relatively minor procedure.

  • Bleeding is minimal and there are fewer complications than with the “strip” method
  • Procedure is performed with local anesthetic and no intravenous or intra-muscular sedation is required
  • Philadelphia patients experience minimal discomfort, no scalpel incision, no sutures, no linear scar, and quick recovery times

FUE is far superior to the FUT method, especially the ARTAS iX and NeoGraft systems, because they produce natural-looking results that mimic the hairline. FUT usually refers to the strip harvest method, which removes a strip of skin and leaves a linear scar on the back of the head. The FUE method uses no scalpel incision or stitches, so there is no scarring, and recovery times are fast. Without a linear scar on the back of the head, you can wear even a short hairstyle.

Nearly all Philadelphia patients who suffer from alopecia are good candidates for the ARTAS iX, NeoGraft Automated FUE system, or both. We’ll ask you a series of questions, provide a hair and scalp analysis, and discuss all of your hair loss treatment options.

The ARTAS iX and NeoGraft systems are both effective, but the ARTAS iX system has some important benefits for Philadelphia patients. This physician-guided robotic system harvests healthy hair grafts and ensures that no area is “over-harvested.” The 3D mapping feature is another incredible feature. However, NeoGraft is also effective and can often produce larger graft counts to the donor area. There are benefits to both innovative systems, and the two are frequently used in combination to tailor treatment plans.

The ARTAS iX Robotic Procedure is a minimally invasive solution that leverages digital imaging and precision robotics to harvest healthy grafts for transplantation. Unlike the earlier methods of hair restoration, there is no need for the surgical removal of a strip of scalp from the back and sides of the head, no linear scar left after surgery, and no need for stitches or staples to close the wound. The benefit is a quick recovery time and the ability to return to normal activities and work sooner.

The NeoGraft Procedure is also a minimally invasive solution that carefully extracts follicles individually and does not use strip harvesting. The grafts are gently removed and with “no touch” follicle implantation, they are safely and effectively delivered to the area with thinning hair.

The ARTAS iX Robotic and NeoGraft procedures use your own permanent growing hair, typically from the back of your head, and the follicles are then implanted to the thinning areas of your scalp. This hair is not susceptible to the conditions that cause male pattern baldness. New hair growth from transplanted hair will last a lifetime.

The ARTAS iX Robotic Procedure usually takes from four to eight hours as determined by your doctor to achieve your hair restoration goals. You are comfortably seated during the process, and Dr. Kwak and the staff are there with you to maximize your comfort throughout the procedure.

Recovery time with the ARTAS iX and NeoGraft procedures is less than with most surgical cosmetic procedures. As there is no surgical incision or stitches required, healing time is short. You can usually go back to your daily activities after a day or two and the donor site will heal in approximately a week. You will have a follow up visit the morning after the procedure to examine your scalp and to teach you how to take care of your newly implanted donor hair.

Transplanted donor hair grows naturally in phases. New hairs are seen about three months after the procedure and will continue to increase over the course of a full year. At approximately six months, you will enjoy a noticeable improvement. After a full year, you will see final results.

The FUE procedures offered at The Lumen Center are provided on an outpatient basis and require only a local anesthetic. The patient feels virtually no pain. Some Philadelphia patients can experience side effects including minor discomfort and swelling post-procedure, which subsides in 1-3 days.

The amount of grafts needed varies from person to person. To find out what to expect during your procedure, we invite you to schedule a free consultation at The Lumen Center.

The cost of a hair transplant depends on various factors including the donor hair you have available and the number of grafts needed. Treatment costs will be determined during your consultation at The Lumen Center. We will discuss the procedure pricing as well as available payment options.

Feel years younger. Regain your confidence. We have the most advanced hair restoration options to help you look and feel your very best.

Hair Transplant for Women

Many women believe that hair transplants are exclusively for men and are pleasantly surprised to learn that women can also be good candidates for a hair transplant. Female pattern alopecia, also known as androgenic alopecia, is the most common type of hair loss in women. The innovative NeoGraft System is ideal for women who suffer from female pattern baldness and have sufficient donor areas that have been unaffected by hair loss.

We’re here to provide all of the answers to your questions about the recovery timeline and the hair growth cycle.
