Why Max Growth When We Have the ARTAS?
You might be wondering why we even offer another option when we have the ARTAS®. Max Growth is a specially developed hair transplant procedure that cannot be compared to FUE, traditional strip procedures or the ARTAS®. The Max Growth harvesting technique is not detectable and the variation of graft sizes is unique, yielding double the hair count when compared to each method.
Max Growth Hair Transplant Means 45% More Hair!
Sante’s main objective is an extraordinary hair transplant. We realize that there are patients who will not consider a transplant if it involves a linear scar. That is precisely why we offer both types of procedures at our clinic. We want our patients to be happy and we would not offer the ARTAS if we didn’t believe that it is extremely advantageous for many patients. At the same time, our Max Growth procedure is undoubtedly the best option for others and we believe our special harvesting technique results in a scar that is not noticeable. We want our patients to know all the facts before they decide which procedure is best for them.
A Little Math illustrates that Max Growth has more ‘Hair Potential’
If you look at the science behind both procedures it is clear that there is more ‘hair potential’ with the Max Growth procedure.
|ARTAS®||1,500 Grafts at 1.75 hairs per Graft||2,625 hairs per surgery|
|Max Growth||25 sq. cm. tissue at 200 hairs per 1 sq cm.||5,000 hairs per surgery|
|ARTAS®||2,000 Grafts at 1.75 hairs per Graft||3,500 hairs per surgery|
|Max Growth||30 sq. cm. tissue at 200 hairs per 1 sq cm.||6,000 hairs per surgery|
|Potential Surgeries in a Lifetime|
|ARTAS®||2-3 Surgeries||3 x 3,500 = 10,500 hairs|
|Max Growth||4-6 Surgeries||5 x 6,000 = 30,000 hairs|
That is a huge difference, but consider this. More than 50% of open donor surgeries get 30 sq. cm (see Large Case chart). We will even factor in that some ARTAS cases might achieve a maximum of 2000 grafts. The gap widens even more.
The last important factor to consider is that Max Growth has potential for more surgeries in a lifetime because the donor is less compromised. This means triple the hair!
