HOW DOES ARTAS® HAIR RESTORATION SELECT WHICH FOLLICLES TO TRANSPLANT?
Hair loss is a widespread concern for many men. Approximately 65% of American men will notice some degree of hair thinning by the age of 35 and almost 85% of all men suffer from significant hair loss by the age of 50. While there are numerous causes of balding, including health and environmental factors, the majority of male hair loss cases are caused by Androgenic Alopecia (male pattern baldness). This means that your hair follicles are genetically predisposed to be sensitive to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT); as your levels of DHT increase with age, your hair increasingly thins, deteriorates, and eventually, falls out.
Hair follicles found at the sides and back of the head are usually resistant to DHT and are ideal for transplantation because they are genetically predisposed not to fall out. Artas® hair restoration uses ground-breaking digital imaging and precision robotics to select the healthiest hair follicles to transplant and ensures these hair follicles are not diminished by DHT. The accuracy of Artas® Hair Transplant technology also ensures the hair found at the back of the head remains thick since the surrounding hair follicles are not touched during transplantation.
