Achieving density in hair transplants: does FUE, Artas or strip make a difference?

One question I'm often asked is robotic FUE can lead to more dense hair transplant results compared to manual FUE or follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS).

The type of donor area extraction technique does not impact the density of hair transplant results. The only factor that influences the density of the hair transplant is how the hair restoration specialist creates the recipient sites. If the sites are made at 30 FU per cm2 the results will be more dense than if made with 20 FU per cm2.

ARTAS, manual FUE and strip are all techniques to get the hairs out - the artistry and talent of hair restoration is determined by how they are put back in.
