North York., Ontario (February 9, 2016) – Sure Hair International now offers Robotic Follicular Unit Extraction (R-FUE) Treatments, an advanced and automated hair restoration technique. The R-FUE hair transplant surgery is the latest significant breakthrough improving upon the existing Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure. Sure Hair International was the first in the Greater Toronto Area to introduce the highly innovative Medical Robotics in the form of their own proprietary Uni-Strand set of techniques, while incorporating the ARTAS® robotics technology for extremely precise extraction of single follicular units back in 2013.
R-FUE is a huge advancement compared to the manual FUE hair transplant procedures in which a doctor visually selects the follicular units to be extracted and extracts them manually, one by one. Due to the complexity and delicate nature of the procedure, even the smallest deviation with a hand-held instrument can transect or damage the follicular unit, rendering it of little value in the transplant. This is why the ARTAS® Robotic System was created and used in Toronto and elsewhere in the country – to minimize human error in the creation of recipient sites. The ARTAS® Robotic System is a physician controlled, computerized device with a three dimensional optical system that isolates follicular units from the back of the scalp.
The robot’s software allows a physician to specify which size follicular units to harvest. As a result, a doctor may be able to select those containing the most hair, and thus minimizes donor area wounding and making the whole process more efficient. Other notable benefits of using the ARTAS® Robotic System during the R-FUE treatment include increased accuracy of graft harvesting, reduced harvesting time, increased survival of harvested follicular units, easier extraction of grafts from the sides of the scalp and easier extraction of grafts in patients from different racial backgrounds or with atypical hair characteristics.
The R-FUE treatment is by far the most advanced hair transplant surgery available anywhere. Best of all, it allows for a procedure that does not leave a linear scar on a patient’s scalp.
