Chances are if you’ve landed on this page, you may be facing that age-old question that bedevils men: “What do I do about my thinning hair?” Lucky for you, you live in an age where state-of-the-art robotic tech helps surgeons perform hair restoration that gives you permanent, natural solutions to hair loss. The ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration procedure is so effective because it uses digital imaging to track and analyze the best hairs for harvesting. ARTAS’ patented blunt dissection technique ensures that the grafts undergo less risk of damage compared to manual FUE procedures with sharp dissection techniques like Neograft. Dr. Rome specializes in ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration, and he gives each new client a free consultation.
Robotic hair restoration is our cutting-edge procedure that allows us to treat hair loss without the cutting, and without linear scarring. Our robotic technology helps us perform hair restoration to give you permanent, natural solutions to hair loss and baldness. According to Dr. Rome, the ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration procedure is the best option for natural hair growth — a major advance over older techniques in the field. Let’s compare a few of them:
The Old Strip Method, or “Follicular Unit Transplant” (FUT), is a 40-year-old procedure that involves removing hairs from a strip of your scalp and inserting them into the thinning patches in your hair. Unfortunately, it often gives patients post-op pain, and leads to other short and long-term adverse effects. Barber Surgeons Guild considers the strip method outdated for a number of reasons:
True, the old strip method isn’t as expensive as up-to-date robotic follicular unit extraction methods. But you get what you pay for. Dr. Rome is confident you’ll be a lot happier not dealing with linear scarring, sidelining your life in recovery, or emerging from surgery with a look that just doesn’t seem natural.
ARTAS, Neograft, and SmartGraft are all follicular unit extraction (FUE) techniques, but while ARTAS is renowned for its precision, and is robotically performed, procedures like Neograft and SmartGraft are performed with handheld instruments. (Very user-dependent and not a standardized procedure.) The risk of Neograft or Smart Graft is that transections are more common. We vote ARTAS. Here’s why:
The field of hair restoration has come a long way over the past decade. That’s why we can guarantee you these benefits if you work with us:
ARTAS robotic hair restoration uses digital imaging to analyze and track each hair to find the best ones for harvesting. With its patented blunt dissection technique, the grafts pose less risk of damage when compared to sharp dissection techniques such as Neograft or Smart Graft. The choice is clear. All that matters is when you want to schedule a consult with Dr. Rome or one of our top BSG doctors.
The greatest losses in hair often occur in your late teens, twenties, and thirties. So it’s no surprise that 50% of our patients are young guys, and the average age of our hair restoration patients is 35 years old. Before robotic hair regeneration, young men had scant options except to regrow their hair with a procedure that left significant linear scarring. That’s why we don’t recommend the traditional method of regrowing hair — the strip procedure (aka FUT) — for our younger patients.
ARTAS will provide for guys to keep their hair short in the back if they choose without the branding of a long scar. In fact, many of our younger patients just need a bit of hairline restoration to improve the slight loss the have experienced, and we’re experts at restoring a completely natural hairline to just how it was before it started thinning.
The other 50% of our patients? Men in their 40s and up. Many have already had between 1-3 strip procedures. That’s why it’s important that they go to a practice that has experience performing ARTAS after a strip, like Barber Surgeons Guild’s chief medical officer, Dr. Justin Rome, and his team. Stop in for a consultation today.
The landmark studies for ARTAS hair regeneration were performed on Caucasian males with straight dark hair, but Dr. Rome & Co. have adapted their techniques to serve patients with Afrocentric hair, as well. Hypertrophic scarring and keloid formation can be common in patients with this type of hair, so we take precautions — such as mixing liquid steroid in our numbing solution to dampen any healing response that may lead to scarring.
We also modify ARTAS off-label to treat guys with Asian and Asian Subcontinent heritage, who tend to have hair that grows out of their heads at steeper angles and in smaller follicular unit groupings than Caucasian hair. No matter. We adjust our procedure to get excellent grafts just the same.
Less than half of all women will make it past the age of 65 with a full head of hair. We treat many women to give them thick hairlines and more volume in the mid scalp zone. (Common areas for hair loss in women.) The female hairline is crucial in hair restoration. Good thing we know how to restore it naturally.
Cosmetic surgery and hormone replacement are crucial in transsexual reassignment procedures, but so are male or female pattern hairlines. Hair patterns help you make the full transition across the spectrum of sexual identification. Without a transplant procedure, many of our patients feel that their transformation is incomplete. Give us the privilege of helping you complete your transformation.
The field of hair restoration has come a long way over the last decade. The Barber Surgeons Guild now has the ability to perform minimally invasive procedures that give you permanent, natural-looking results without linear strip scarring. Plus, we work with much more precision than you are likely to get with manual handheld follicular unit extraction methods like Neograft. BSG’s ARTAS Robotic Procedure gives you these advantages:
Not only is the Barber Surgeons Guild an ARTAS Center of Clinical Excellence, and an ARTAS training center for hair restoration doctors, we also offer the most advanced additional therapies like PRP and ATP-v to help you get the best results possible. We’re also among the select few practices that specialize in robotic beard and robotic eyebrow restoration.
Barber Surgeons Guild is among the select ARTAS providers who are also established as Robotic Centers of Clinical Excellence, which means you’ll get the best quality procedure in the world. Plus, we combine other procedures like PRP and ATP-v with our robotic restoration at no additional cost if you choose our “Fill-the-Area” model.
