What is ARTAS iX™?

The Market Report states that the Global Hair Restoration Services Market size is expected to rise to new levels at a compound annual growth rate of 5.4%, reaching $11.9 billion by 2025. It is indicative that hair restoration has steadily become a popular aesthetic procedure. The treatment is usually sought after by men who suffer from one or more kinds of extreme hair loss or hair thinning. The case for hair loss is primarily attributed to genetic factors and age and is mostly prevalent in males.

With the demand for hair restoration accelerating in growth, ARTAS iX™ is well-poised to help you capitalize on this lucrative market. ARTAS iX™ Robotic Hair Restoration System is the most intelligent solution to hair loss, utilizing the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method it offers a precise and minimally invasive procedure for patients. The system is able to perform repeatable harvesting with simultaneous recipient site-making and implantation, utilizing state-of-the-art robotic and artificial intelligence technology, in one compact platform.

Why Choose FUE?

Hair restoration procedures fall into two categories: Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Both methods consist of removing hair follicles from the back of the head, better known as the donor area. The primary difference between these two methods is that with FUT, the surgeon removes a strip of skin from the donor area, and then proceeds to extract individual follicular units. With FUE, these very follicular units are individually removed. The latter leaves no linear scar, making it easy to return to daily activities relatively sooner. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), FUE is growing 39% annually as FUT becomes less popular. The FUE process is quickly gaining momentum as the future of hair restoration as it tackles many pre-existing apprehensions regarding hair restoration such as scars and extensive downtimes.

What makes ARTAS iX™ different?

ARTAS iX™ is a proprietary, patented, and FDA-cleared robotic hair restoration system. The advanced multi-camera stereoscopic vision system with 44-micron resolution and 7-axis robot arm delivers unmatched intelligence, precision, repeatability, and clinical efficiency.

It intelligently analyzes and selects grafts from the donor area with no risk of linear scarring while accurately identifying and creating optimal recipient sites. The existing terminal hair is protected throughout the procedure along with a natural appearance in the donor and implantation areas.

Furthermore, the 3D pre-operative planning feature enables physicians to customize and prescribe the hairline design with the desired angle, direction and density. Given that hair restoration procedures take time, the compact and streamlined ergonomic design makes it easy to use while minimizing the footprint and facilitating clinical efficiency.

How can ARTAS iX™ benefit your business? 

The male aesthetics market remains largely untapped with 1.2 billion men, worldwide, suffering from hereditary baldness. This represents an extraordinary opportunity to capture both new patients and new revenue streams for physicians.
