Does the ARTAS FUE Robot Work with Dark Hair?

February 7th, 2013

Q: I read your post that the ARTAS robot doesn’t work well in patients that want FUE but have blond hair. I have dark skin and hair, does that present a problem for the machine?

A: The ARTAS Robot performs follicular unit extraction just as well with blond hair as dark hair, but not white hair. It is simple to just to dye the white donor hair prior to the hair transplant procedure. This donor hair will be clipped very short the morning of surgery removed anyway, so it will not present too much of a cosmetic issue.
