Certain hair transplant surgeons and clinics offer facial hair transplant services as well. A facial hair transplant will help you increase the density of your eyebrows, eyelashes, beard, moustache, or sideburns. Men use facial hair transplant to get a more masculine look, and women use it to get better-looking and symmetrical eyebrows and eyelashes.

ARTAS facial hair transplants are robotic surgical hair transplants. Just like with any other hair transplant, healthy hair from the back or sides of the head is harvested and grafted into the target area. Two weeks after the transplant is done, the transplanted facial hair will automatically fall off and make way for permanent facial hair. The regrowth takes a couple of months.

The ARTAS technology has made it easier for facial hair transplants to be carried out. The ARTAS robot uses sophisticated imaging technology and algorithms to identify healthy follicular units to harvest them. The robot then extracts the follicular units and implants them in the areas where new hair growth is desired. Some of the different kinds of facial hair transplants are described here.

Sideburn Transplant

A sideburn transplant will help in the growth of hair on the sides of your face where the hair is missing or is thin and spotty. It will also help to conceal scars. Around 100 to 250 grafts will be required for each sideburn, but it really depends on an individual’s specific needs.

Donor hair (healthy hair that is used for the transplant) is taken from either the sides or back of your head, depending on which matches the hair on your face the best. The ARTAS robot identifies and harvests the best match.

The new facial hair will have a texture similar to the rest of the surrounding facial hair. It is important to remember that it may require more trimming in order to help it best match the surrounding hair.

Eyebrow Transplant

An eyebrow transplant gives you attractive and natural-looking eyebrows. Because your own hair is used, it blends with the existing brow hair follicles, and the new brow that grows is very similar to the rest of the eyebrow hair.

During your consultation, the doctor will discuss with you the desired arch shape, thickness, texture, and length of the brows. The whole procedure will aim to give you eyebrows that will match your features and facial type.

Beard and Moustache Transplant

Spotty, wispy, or thin beards and moustaches can be filled in to make them look naturally thicker and fuller. A match for the hair in your beard and moustache will be taken from your head. After the transplant is done, the newly growing facial hair can be trimmed and shaved as before.
