The Artas Robotic System was approved for use in men with dark hair in 2011 and works by ‘selectively harvesting’ hair follicles from a donor area on the head ‘with robotic precision’ before then being transplanted into the areas that are thinning. It costs around $12,000 (£10,000.) The surgery costs around £10k (Picture: Getty) ‘Warwick was becoming increasingly self-conscious about his receding hair,’ a source close to the Star Wars actor claimed. The 3ft 5in star will not see the results for several months but it is thought that the procedure, which took place at the Farjo Hair Institute clinic in Cheshire, allows for recvoery within 24 – 48 hours. Warwick starred as Wicket the Ewok in Star Wars (Picture: Rex) Speaking to The Mirror, a source close to the actor added: ‘He may not be a traditional Hollywood leading man but he’s always in demand and is recognised everywhere. He’s really pleased with the result.’ Get it, Warwick. Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Warwick for comment.
