Any incision through the skin, whether by machine or by hand, that enters the skin beyond a superficial depth, causes a scar to form. There is also no machine capable of performing all aspects of hair restoration surgery. There is only technology that can assist an expertly trained surgeon performing hair restoration surgery.
