San Jose is known as the CAPITAL of Silicon Valley, and Silicon Valley is all about technology. But guess what? If you are considering a San Jose robotic hair transplant the best method is the ARTAS method and that is available from the man who invented the procedure, Dr Miguel Canales.
Guess what else? Although the ARTAS robotic hair transplant system is the most technologically advanced in the world, Dr Canales’ office is not in San Jose: it’s up the road a short way in Foster City. This is where Dr Canales is based, and he is the man who for ten years was the Medical Director of Restoration Robotics. It was he and his team who developed the ARTAS procedure which has several important benefits that sets it apart from the previous manual method of hair transplantation.
To begin with, when hair transplantation is done manually it involves the removal of a strip of hair from the back of the head which obviously leaves a scar. Certainly, this can be hidden by allowing the remaining hair to grow over it, but with the ARTAS procedure there is no visible scar whatsoever.
Next, with manual transplants there is always a loss of some of the hair follicles that have been transplanted, and there is also danger to surrounding hair growing in the recipient area. With the ARTAS Procedure this does not occur as the robot implants the harvested hair follicles very precisely without causing any damage. If you happen to be of African descent and have curly hair the harvesting process is also simpler compared with a manual transplantation.
There is also far less pain, discomfort and downtime. People of an athletic nature seeking a San Jose robotic hair transplant can resume sporting activities a day or two after the surgery. It also means that if you wish to wear your hair fashionably short you can do so, whereas with a manual procedure you have to let the hair grow long to cover the scar.
So the upshot is this: yes, San Jose is the center of Silicon Valley and has provided us with some amazing technology, but if you want the very latest hair transplant technology then you need to go to Foster City. Even San Jose is not as advanced in that field.
