NeoGraft® vs. ARTAS® for Hair Restoration

Happy,Handsome,Young,Shirtless,Man,Combing,Smooth,Straight,Hair,,Looking Hair loss can be a source of frustration and self-consciousness for many individuals. Fortunately, advances in medical technology have paved the way for innovative solutions, such as hair transplants. Among the various techniques available, two prominent players in the field are NeoGraft® and ARTAS®.

Both NeoGraft and ARTAS fall under the umbrella of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), a minimally invasive method that involves harvesting individual hair follicles from a donor area and transplanting them to the recipient site. While the ultimate goal is the same, the technologies behind NeoGraft and ARTAS present unique approaches to achieving successful hair transplantation. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the key differences between these two hair transplant technologies to help you make an informed decision on your hair restoration journey.

What Is NeoGraft®?

NeoGraft distinguishes itself with its semi-automated FUE technique. Using a handheld device, the surgeon employs pneumatic pressure to extract individual hair follicles from the donor area. NeoGraft uses your own hair in thicker areas (donor sight) and then redistributes it where you need it most.

The technology incorporates a suction-based system that streamlines the graft extraction process, making it less reliant on manual force or traditional scalpel incisions. NeoGraft offers flexibility by allowing the surgeon to have manual control over certain aspects of the procedure, which can be beneficial in adapting to varying patient needs.

What is ARTAS®?

ARTAS, on the other hand, is a robotic hair transplant system that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology. It uses robotic arms equipped with cameras and imaging technology to identify and harvest hair follicles. A physician oversees the procedure. The robotic system determines which hairs are most viable for transplant and only selects those. ARTAS uses a punch tool mounted on the robotic arm to extract hair follicles from the donor area. ARTAS may have limitations in terms of adaptability to different patient anatomies, and it may require manual intervention in certain cases.

Comparing NeoGraft® vs ARTAS®

One of the critical distinctions between NeoGraft and ARTAS lies in their graft extraction techniques. NeoGraft is manually controlled by the surgeon, offering a blend of automation and hands-on precision. ARTAS uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology with its robotic arms and punch tool. AI is smart, it can detect everything it has been programmed to detect, however, it cannot account for all variables, particularly the most subtle. NeoGraft allows for greater surgeon control during hair follicle extraction. The ergonomic device acts as an extension of the surgeon’s arm, allowing their artistry to truly shine through. This helps NeoGraft create a natural-looking and completely individualized result.
