Hair Restoration With ARTAS™ iX

Request a Consultation


Men and women become prone to hair loss as a result of aging, stress, genetics, and other factors. While hair loss is not uncommon, this condition tends to affect many patients both physically and emotionally.

Some people try remedies like homeopathic treatments, over-the-counter medications, and special shampoos but unfortunately, these options may only produce temporary improvement or none at all. Thankfully, Dr. Pearce offers patients a hair restoration treatment that can address this issue with more permanent and proven results. The ARTAS™ iX is an FDA-approved robotic system that utilizes state-of-the-art technology to permanently treat hair loss and provide patients with a full head of hair. By selecting the ARTAS™ iX, you are choosing the most advanced hair restoration system available to help you achieve the results you desire.

Benefits of ARTAS™ iX


Your ARTAS™ iX Procedure

  • Consultation

    During your consultation, Dr. Pearce will review your medical history and examine the condition of your scalp to determine the best approach for your hair restoration treatment. He will also explain how the procedure is performed in full detail and determine the number of grafts needed to provide you with the results you desire.

  • Preparation

    Before your ARTAS™ iX hair restoration procedure, Dr. Pearce will trim your entire scalp to a very short length. Doing this allows the ARTAS™ iX device to thoroughly examine your scalp and detect healthy hair follicles. This is typically only done for male patients, as Dr. Pearce goes to great lengths to avoid shaving the entire scalp for female patients.

  • Treatment

    During your ARTAS™ treatment, the device will use computer-imaging software to identify healthy hair follicles. The hair grafts are then carefully harvested to preserve the natural look of the donor area along the scalp. Once all of the hair follicles have been gathered, they are then transplanted into the treatment site, either robotically or manually, to produce a fuller and more youthful head of hair.


After your hair transplant procedure, you may experience minimal pain and discomfort. You may also experience some slight redness along the scalp that feels similar to a sunburn, but this should resolve after a few days. Because ARTAS™ requires little to no downtime, you will be able to return to work the following day. However, if your job requires you to work outdoors, you can return to work five to seven days after your treatment.


ARTAS™ will not leave a linear scar on your scalp. This treatment only results in minimal scarring, which is often hidden when your hair grows out. The scars will also fade with time.


You can expect permanent custom-made results that can boost your self-esteem and leave you with a fuller, thicker, and more youthful head of hair. Final results will become apparent between nine to 12 months after your procedure.


The cost of your hair restoration treatment will vary based on some factors, including surgical fees and techniques. Dr. Pearce will provide you with a price sheet along with a personalized surgical plan that will meet your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose ARTAS™ iX over strip or handheld FUE techniques?

While both ARTAS™ iX and traditional hair restoration procedures use minimally invasive follicular unit extraction (FUE) to successfully restore hair to the scalp, ARTAS™ iX has proven to be the more efficient procedure. With ARTAS™ iX, the device digitally maps out the donor area and analyzes the position of each of the hair grafts to carefully implant it to the treated area until the desired amount of hair is acquired.

Am I a good candidate for hair restoration surgery?

Ideal candidates for hair restoration must be in good health and have realistic expectations of their results. Most patients who are in their 30s or older and have seen their hair loss stabilize or slow down are also good candidates for hair restoration surgery.

How long will my hair restoration treatment take?

ARTAS™ treatment typically takes five to six hours depending on how many grafts are needed and the amount of correction required.

Dr. Pearce is an exceptional physician. Very easy to talk to and put my concerns and fears at rest. I will be sending my friends to see him.
