Permanent, undetectable results with no linear scar required.
TORONTO, May 16, 2013 /CNW/ - Sure Hair International® is the first centre in Toronto to offer the new ARTAS™ robotic hair restoration procedure. The ARTAS robot is a state-of-the-art medical device that safely and effectively extracts hair for transplantation. This latest development in minimally-invasive hair restoration promises permanent, virtually undetectable results, with no linear scar.
"Traditional surgical hair transplants require the removal of a strip of skin from the back of the scalp from which follicles are then harvested for transfer to the patient's balding area," says Dr. Aditya Gupta, hair transplant surgeon at Sure Hair International. "This results in a noticeable scar and a longer healing process."
And for those patients looking for single strand extraction (or FUE), a manual drill was the only method available. Using the ARTAS robot eliminates the risk of human error and ensures perfects grafts every time.
The ARTAS create tiny incisions for each harvested follicle that do not require any sutures. It also calculates the follicle's optimal angle for extraction to ensure the transplanted hairs grow in the proper orientation for a natural-looking result.
"The Sure Hair ARTAS robot is remarkable," says Nevio Persia, a patient at Sure Hair. "I was out having coffee with friends four days later and they had no idea I had a transplant," he adds. "Absolutely painless and quicker than I thought. No scar. Just one day and I was done."
"As a medical distributor, we stake our reputation on introducing innovative technologies that are capable of raising the standard of care in Canada," says Jay Herman, President of Sigmacon Medical. "After witnessing the ARTAS procedure, one can immediately see it will forever change the landscape of hair restoration."
