ARTAS - am I a candidate? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 14
Is this 68 year old female a candidate for an ARTAS robotic hair transplant procedure?
Thank you for posting this question. What is required in this situation is a consultation with a physician with a dedicated practice to the field of hair restoration surgery. It appears from your photographs that you may be losing hair in the donor area, which would rule out candidacy for an ARTAS robotic hair transplant procedure, or any other surgical hair transplant by any method. An exam with a dermatoscope is indicated to check for miniaturization in the donor area. You may be a candidate for hair rejuvenation with non-surgical methods, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or low level laser therapy (LLLT). I hope this information is helpful to you.

FUE for women
Most women due not strongly consider FUE procedures. In your case I recommend you with a physician to determine the source or cause of your hair loss. I personally would not see you as a good candidate for transplant.
Female Candidaty for Artas Procedure
I encourage you to have a consultation with a doctor. Only the physician performing the procedure can determine if they would take the case. This is a cosmetic procedure and if there isn't enough donor to make a cosmetic change in your appearance &/or your donor is not stable, you are likely not a good candidate for the procedure. Visit with a doctor and find identify causation!
