Dr. James Harris and the ARTAS® System
As a lead consulting physician, Dr. Harris offered his knowledge in the development of the ARTAS® System. This groundbreaking hair transplant technology uses advanced algorithms to select individual hair follicles unique to each person.
The ARTAS System combines several features for a successful hair transplant. Among these features are advanced imaging technologies, which the system uses to guide an interactive robotic arm to perform medical and surgical processes. The images enhance the quality of follicle harvesting to help physicians conduct the operation.
During procedures, the physicians, who have undergone training from Dr. Harris, will position the ARTAS® System over your scalp and begin the sophisticated imaging process. The system controls algorithms to guide the physician in targeting and harvesting the best hair follicles for implantation.
No-Shave FUE Hair Transplant
Dr. James Harris is the only physician who offers No-Shave Follicular Unit Excision (FUE). This hair transplant technique is so advanced that less than 5% of doctors or clinics that perform FUE offer the No-Shave option.
Approximately 95% of hair transplant patients at RESTORE opt for this graft harvest method.
Not long ago, FUE hair transplants required physicians to shave a patient’s entire head to about 1/25th of an inch, similar to a military buzz cut. This method was necessary to help surgeons identify the best follicular units for transplant targeting and the hair’s direction, texture, curl pattern, and diameter.
Dr. Harris pioneered an innovative No-Shave technique that involves trimming only the individual hair follicles for transplant. This method also involves combining the longer, surrounding hairs over the transplanted area to hide signs of surgery.
Most physicians avoid this method because of its time- and labor-intensive nature. However, Dr. Harris has applied this technique when performing individual hair transplant sessions of over 3,000 grafts.
You can meet Dr. Harris and discuss your hair restoration goals if you believe you are an eligible candidate for this procedure. Dr. Harris believes that visiting RESTORE is the best step on your journey to regaining confidence in your hair.
