Dr. Robert Leonard and Dr. Matthew Lopresti employ the ARTAS® Robotic System to restore hair on patients seeking a hair loss solution with a natural look.

Boston, MA — A sophisticated hair transplant technique offers patients a permanent solution for hair loss without the scarring typically associated with traditional hair transplant procedures, say New England-area surgeons Dr. Robert Leonard and Dr. Matthew Lopresti of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates. Under the close control of the surgeons, the ARTAS® Robotic System efficiently harvests hair follicles from donor areas and relocates them, giving patients results that are permanent and look very natural.

In a recent blog post discussing the benefits of the ARTAS® Robotic System for hair loss treatment, Dr. Leonard discusses how this innovative technology in surgical hair transplantation provides their patients with precise and reproducible graft harvesting.  He says, with the ARTAS® technique, patients can wear virtually any hairstyle since the  nature of the procedure typically results in minimal donor area scarring. Other benefits include:

Dr. Leonard clarifies, “With ARTAS®, it’s called a Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) technique. We actually move individual grafts, which are then transplanted to the top of the head, so there’s no linear scar that might be evident if a person were to wear his hair really short.” Unlike the traditional method  that uses a strip harvest (leaving a linear scar in the donor area), the hair restoration surgeon says the ARTAS® system uses image-guided robotic technology to surgically remove pinpointed grafts. Once healed, he asserts, the results are nearly invisible.

Recognizing that hair loss is a sensitive issue for many patients, Drs. Leonard and Lopresti create customized treatments for each patient based on his or her individual needs. Utilizing the most advanced technologies available, the doctors say they perform hair restoration treatments that are designed to furnish the best possible outcome, and the ARTAS® system is one way to achieve that.
