Hair Rejuvenation Institute of Calgary introduces new robotic hair restoration procedure to Western Canada

No linear scar. Permanent results.

CALGARY, May 15, 2014 /CNW/ - The Hair Rejuvenation Institute (HRI) of Calgary is the first to offer the ARTAS® Robotic hair restoration procedure in Western Canada.

The ARTAS procedure is the only minimally-invasive, computer-assisted hair restoration solution that allows physicians to leverage precision robotics to deliver permanent, natural results with no linear scar.

"Advances in robotic hair restoration technology have resulted in a dramatic increase in interest" says Dr. Sreenivasan, Medical Director of HRI. "Doll-like hair plugs, long recovery periods and scarring are now a thing of the past. And by randomly extracting each hair it is almost impossible to detect where the hairs came from in the donor area."

Faster & more precise than the human hand, the ARTAS system automatically maps and extracts up to 1,000 hair follicles an hour with micron level accuracy. Transplanted hairs grow in the proper orientation for a natural-looking result. Only tiny incision marks are left when extracting each hair follicle, eliminating the need for sutures.

"The ARTAS robot eliminates the risk of human error and ensures accurate grafts every time," says Jay Herman, President of Salient Medical Solutions. "We're delighted to be part of HRI's mission to offer the latest advancements in hair restoration."
