To save his receding hairline, actor-TV host Edu Manzano underwent treatment through the Artas
robotic machine at the hair restoration clinic of the Aivee Group.
“It was nothing I imagined,” he said. “I had the procedure done in March and the total experience was about five hours. I really didn’t have any expectations as Artas is a revolutionary concept and is only being introduced in the Philippines.”
He added: “While the machine is intimidating, the experience is manageable.”
Hair transplants need not be a tedious and torturous procedure anymore. Artas robotic hair surgery is a long-term solution that is quick and effective, in contrast to traditional methods.
“The attention to detail was superb,” said Manzano. “It was everything the doctor told me it would be.”
After the procedure, Manzano pointed out that he has gone back to the Aivee Clinic only a couple of times so the doctor can see the hair growth pattern.
“And both times I left the clinic smiling,” Manzano said. “I have a few more months to wait before I can fully appreciate it, but I already see hair growth in areas that were barren before I came to the Aivee Clinic.”
Artas robotic surgery allows the procedure to be done in a more precise and consistent way, ultimately maximizing the growth of hair grafts.
During the procedure, the donor hair is removed directly from the back and sides of the scalp using robotic control called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
FUE is time-consuming when done manually. It also often leads to significant injury to the follicles.
In a robotic FUE hair transplant, follicular units are extracted one at a time by the image-guided, computer-driven system.
It is remarkably better in terms of speed and precision with the robotic system as opposed to relying on human hands.
