ARTAS® vs. NeoGraft®
Many patients have asked us the difference between the Hair Sciences Center philosophy and approach and that of other doctors and clinics that use the NeoGraft device. We offer the following information so that patients can make an informed decision.
Hair Sciences Center
Every patient has different skin, hair profiles and desired outcomes. Most dedicated hair restoration clinics are experts at using a variety of hair transplant surgical devices that are available to the surgeon during surgery. By having this approach at the Hair Sciences Center we have the opportunity to create truly personal plans and pick the right surgical approach for each patient.
Most NeoGraft clinics are not dedicated hair restoration practices and offer only one surgical option, NeoGraft; it’s a one size fits all approach. If during your surgery your skin and graft types are not amenable to extraction with the NeoGraft device there is no other option.
Dr. Harris is board certified, by Diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, on the CU Denver university faculty, published author, and patented inventor of hair restoration instruments.
Most FUE is performed by unlicensed technicians with an unknown level of expertise or knowledge.
All consultations include a medical history and diagnosis of the underlying cause of an individual’s hair loss by a physician.
Minimal, if any, diagnosis of hair loss other than genetically inherited pattern baldness.
The Hair Sciences Center is devoted exclusively to hair restoration.
A typical NeoGraft clinic offers multiple cosmetic procedures, with no specialization in hair restoration.
Artas System Features
NeoGraft System Features
Computerized digital imaging for micron-level accuracy.
No digital imaging.
Advanced robotic arm for algorithm-based, consistent and precise graft dissection.
Hand-held device subject to user error and inconsistent graft dissection.
3-D image-guided auto alignment.
Programmable determination of follicular units in the donor area means even, calculated distribution and optimal spacing between grafts.
User determination of target follicular units can lead to variable or inconsistent extraction patterns in the donor area.
High definition stereoscopic vision system.
Magnifying loupes and the quality of the dissection depends on the user’s eye-hand coordination.
ARTAS Artificial IntelligenceTM algorithms are used to detect and determine hair characteristics including angles, directions, thickness of hair, and hairs per graft.
Subjective guessing is used to determine donor hair characteristics.
ARTAS practitioners are licensed physicians, and Dr. Harris in particular, is an advocate for patient care and communication.
Neograft provides unlicensed technicians hired by the owners of the Neograft hair restoration system to perform your surgical procedure. When it’s over, he or she goes home or is off to another city.
The ARTAS System is completely automated after the dissection parameters are input by the physician.
Neograft has NO automation-exactly the opposite of what is advertised.
In the end the results are only as good as the surgeon. Utilizing the revolutionary ARTAS® system Dr. Harris and his team will precisely and artistically create your new, natural head of hair.
