Time began to feel less like the ticking clock, and more like the state of being.
Everyone succumbs to finitude.
Money, status, all the vanities the preacher of Ecclesiastes described, hold so little interest. On p of that, the future, instead of the ladder ward the goals of life, flattens out into a perpetual present. Either way, they belong to the past, Most ambitions are either achieved or abandoned. I suspect I am not only one who reaches this pluperfect state.
ARTAS System is a robotic extraction system.
The FDA has reported that the transection rate is as low as 8 for the robotic system.
Using a system of cameras and computer software, follicular units are mapped out and extracted. Did you know that a robotic arm with a 1 mm, blunt punch incises the graft, when the software maps out the follicular units.
So physician or assistant will have to go back and retrieve the grafts for implantation.
The software is also able to space out the extraction to minimize thinning of the donor area.
So physician can change the settings from a console. Notice, the benefit of the robotic system is that it excels at repetitive tasks and can do it consistently without fatigue compared to humans. By the way, the robot will incise the grafts but does not collect it. Therefore, also in scar revision, skin rejuvenation, and treatment of skin disease, leo et al performed a systematic review of the aesthetic uses of PRP in dermatology and found current clinical studies suggest its utility in not only hair restoration.
Besides, the authors also noted that there may also be added benefit of using PRP in combination with other modalities, similar to lasers.
Miao et al demonstrated significant hair growth in hairless mice when PRP was used.
Platelet rich plasma contains growth factors that was shown to improve wound healing. PRP is an emerging trend in hair restoration as a way to improve graft survival, increase hair yield rate, increase hair density and diameter. It’s a well more studies are required if you want to evaluate the effectiveness of PRP in hair restoration, while current clinical studies are suggestive of the privileges of PRP therapy. Normally, instrumentation for FUE has evolved from manual punches to modern ols similar to the NeoGraft machine and the ARTAS robot that allow for quick and safe harvest of grafts. Research dedicated to stem cell therapy and gene therapy should be the next frontier in hair restoration therapy, For patients with severe baldness, options are limited. Usually, the evolution of hair transplantation surgery now offers patients natural and aesthetically pleasing results that can be achieved reliably.
