Hair Transplant UK
A hair transplant is usually carried out under local anaesthetic and sedation, which means you’ll be awake but will not feel any pain.
During the Robotic Hair Transplant Treatments, your physician will use the robot’s Harvesting System which precisely and gently dissects grafts thousands of times in a single treatment. The Robotic Hair Loss is High-Definition Stereoscopic Vision System that identifies the optimal grafts to remove. Because the treatment is performed robotically, it offers high-quality visualisation and precise dissection from the first to the last graft.
Once the hair follicles are harvested, the robotic hair transplant precisely creates new recipient sites based on the physician’s prescribed hairline design for the patient, using Robots patented Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology.
Depending on the patient, procedure and device model, your surgeon will simultaneously make recipient sites and implant the harvested hair grafts with the robotic hair transplant. The proprietary AI algorithm is designed to protect existing terminal hair while creating a natural-looking aesthetic result.
There are 2 types of hair transplants.
Follicular unit transplantation (FUT, or strip method):
A thin strip of skin with hair is removed from the back of your head and divided into pieces, each containing 1 to 4 hairs (hair grafts) the grafts are placed into tiny cuts made in the scalp the site where the hairs are taken is closed with stitches you’ll have a scar on the back of your head, but it should not be visible unless you have very short hair. The head does not need to be shaved – only the area where the skin is removed is trimmed.
Follicular unit extraction (FUE):
At Pulse Light Clinic we use the FUE method with ARTAS hair restoration procedure. The back of the head is shaved individual hairs are removed one by one (grafts) the grafts are placed into tiny cuts made in the scalp you’ll have lots of tiny scars, but they will not be very noticeable. Hair transplants usually take a day, but you should not need to stay overnight. If a large area is being treated, you may need to have two or more treatments a few months apart.
