What causes Male Pattern Baldness (MPB)?

In the overwhelming majority of males with hair loss, the cause is Male Pattern Baldness (MPB), which is genetically inherited from either side of the family and begins to develop after puberty. MPB occurs when a man is genetically susceptible to the presence of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Hair on the scalp that is affected by DHT (the hairline, crown and top of the scalp) starts to shrink in its shaft diameter and potential length, until it eventually disappears—a process known as hair miniaturization. The hair on the back and sides of the scalp is not affected by DHT and therefore is “permanent” hair, and is not subject to male pattern baldness. For the very latest technology in hair restoration, Dr. Mark Bishara is now using the ARTAS System. This interactive, computer assisted equipment employs image guidance to enhance the quality of hair follicle harvesting.

The ARTAS® Robotic System

The ARTAS® Robotic System safely and effectively extracts hair for transplantation. With over 8 years of research and development, the ARTAS Robotic System delivers outstanding hair restoration results in an outpatient procedure. Rigorously tested, cleared by the FDA and other international regulatory bodies, the ARTAS Robotic System achieves outstanding results for hair restoration physicians.

ARTAS ScreenshotEach follicular unit is digitally tracked. 

Dr. Bishara uses advanced digital imagery to map and analyze the hair in its natural groupings on the scalp. These natural groupings of hair are called follicular units. The ARTAS Robotic System’s precision robotics allow for the precise extraction of intact follicular units for transplantation. Follicular units are removed in a random fashion, within the existing hair, so those areas of the scalp maintain their natural appearance. The ARTAS Robotic System continuously monitors for any movement of the patient’s head, and dynamically adjusts accordingly.

How does The ARTAS® Robotic Procedure Work?

The ARTAS Procedure restores your hair by transplanting permanent hair from the back or side of the head into thinning areas. Dr. Bishara uses the ARTAS System to harvest healthy hair. Using digital imaging technology, the ARTAS System identifies and maps hair in its natural groupings on the scalp. The hair is then removed so that the area retains its original appearance, and then meticulously transplanted into the scalp, based on your treatment goals, to provide a natural looking result.
The transplanted hair grows in gradually over time. Over a period of 3-4 months, you should start to see new permanent hair. At six months, most patients notice steady growth and increasing fullness. Most patients experience complete results in about a year. This new, permanent hair can be styled and cut normally, so you can experience the confidence of fuller hair.

Some of the ARTAS Robotic System’s advanced features:

  • Precision robotics: for precise and accurate movement
  • Image guidance: stereo digital imagery guides all movement
  • Digital visualization: tracks each follicular unit in 3-D space
  • Visual servoing: dynamically adjusts to patient movement
  • Selective harvest pattern: to maintain the look of the donor area
Testimonial of one of Dr. Bishara’s satisfied patients:
“My name is Jonathan W.and I wanted to let you know how amazing my hair transplant surgeries have been due to the ARTAS system. I have experienced only minor irritation in the donor areas and was amazed with the efficiency of the system to be placed in an automatic mode to harvest hair. In my opinion this system is the wave of the future as it relates to hair transplants. Also, I have no visible scarring in the donor areas which to me is wonderful. I hope they continue to improve and expand the abilities of the ARTAS system and thank all those involved for making my great transplant experiences possible.”
The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplantation procedure is preferred because of its minimally invasive nature and no need for anesthesia or downtime. This procedure is designed to produce effective results with minimal downtime and no damage to surrounding hair follicles. Dr. Bishara is highly experienced in performing this, and will help you determine how to achieve the best possible results.
