01 Overview

A New Generation of Performance

The ARTAS® System enables physicians to harvest healthy follicular units in a minimally invasive procedure. Using sophisticated imaging technology and precision robotics, the ARTAS® System dissects follicular units accurately and consistently, thousands of times in a single session. A proprietary dissection system and intelligent algorithms help physicians retain the natural appearance of the patient’s donor area. The ARTAS System has received FDA 510(k) clearance and CE Marking certification.

02 Details

Innovative technologies for the results you expect

High-resolution digital imaging
rapid, micron-level targeting accuracy

Image-guided robotic alignment
speed and precision beyond manual techniques

Minimally invasive dissection
delivers healthy, intact grafts with less visible harvest sites

Intuitive controls
shortens the learning curve and makes the procedure easier to perform

Steps of the Artas® Procedure

  • Skin tensioner is placed on the trimmed donor area to keep the area taut
  • High resolution visualization identifies follicular units on the surface of the patient’s skin and targets them for harvesting
  • Image-guided robotic arm maneuvers and deploys the two-needle system, compensating for patient movement
  • Gentle suction lifts the dissected graft partially out of the scalp, so technician can remove using forceps
  • Grafts are manually transplanted in the desired scalp areas

Superior Results

Restoration Robotics, Inc., (San Jose, CA) is a privately held medical device company dedicated to transforming the field of hair restoration. The company produces the ARTAS® System, the first and only computer-assisted, physician-controlled system to harvest follicular units directly from the scalp. The company has unique expertise in machine vision, image guidance, visual servoing and robotics, as well as developing intuitive interfaces to manage these technologies. The company is located in the heart of the high-technology center of Silicon Valley.
