No detectable scar. Permanent results.

MONTREAL, Nov. 5, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ – Médecine Esthétique Dr Yves Hébert will be the first centre in Montreal and in the province of Quebec to offer the revolutionary ARTAS™ robotic hair restoration procedure.

The ARTAS™ robotic system is a state-of-the-art medical device that safely and effectively extracts hair for transplantation. This latest development in minimally-invasive hair restoration promises permanent, virtually undetectable results, with no linear scar in the donor area.

“The ARTAS™ procedure is revolutionizing the world of hair restoration by providing a minimally invasive approach to hair transplants. It eliminates the long linear scar in the donor area and it reduces considerably the post-operative downtime. I am very excited to be among the first in Canada to use this advanced technology and to offer it to my patients.” says Dr. Hébert.

The ARTAS™ robot automatically calculates the optimal angle of each follicle for extraction. As such, transplanted hairs grow in the proper orientation for a natural-looking result. Also, the ARTAS™ creates tiny incisions when extracting each harvested follicle, eliminating the need for sutures.

“Before ARTAS™, the only method of single hair extraction (or FUE) was a manual drill,” says Jay Herman, President of Salient Medical. “The ARTAS™ robot eliminates the risk of human error and ensures precise and accurate graft extraction.”
