If you’ve chosen the ARTAS robotic hair restoration procedure, you can look forward to highly precise hair extraction and grafting to give you the best possible results. Although hair replacement is a minimally invasive procedure, there is very little you need to do to prepare for your appointment. There is no general anesthesia required. Instead, a local anesthetic will eliminate any discomfort. And although the procedure can be lengthy, you’ll be comfortably seated throughout it and you’ll be given breaks as needed.
Consulting Your Hair Loss Doctor
Your first step toward a thicker head of hair is to consult a hair loss doctor who offers the ARTAS procedure as other procedures can result in linear scarring, significant downtime, and long term pain and numbness. During your consultation, the doctor will explain the procedure to you, discuss the results you can expect, and answer any questions you may have. He or she will give you all the information you need to prepare for the procedure and to go through the recovery process afterward.
Scheduling Transitional Haircuts
For best results, the hair at the donor site in the back of your head ought to be no more than one millimeter in length. Many people prefer to schedule transitional haircuts, however cutting your hair prior to the procedure is not necessary as it can always be done on your procedure day. You could shorten your hair to about three millimeters one month prior to your ARTAS procedure. Then, shorten it to one millimeter just a few days before having the surgery. This gradual shortening prevents others from noticing a difference.
Going to Your Appointment
It’s best to wear loose, comfortable clothing when you go to the hair loss clinic. The doctor may ask that you avoid wearing tops that must be pulled over your head. Some hair loss clinics may offer entertainment options such as movies or music to keep you occupied during the treatment. However, you may wish to bring reading materials or other items from home.
