Non Surgical Hair Loss Replacement

Whether your hair loss is age related, illness induced, hormonal, stress related or something else, there are ways to replace hair in a cost effective, natural looking way. Many Hair Loss Specialists use wigs, toupees, hair extensions and weaves. There are many options to choose from. The above can be applied to specific areas of the scalp or you can even get a full head of new hair and these solutions come in many shapes and sizes. Non surgical applications are beneficial to those who cannot undergo surgery or for those who have tried topical treatments without success or are not candidates for hair transplantation surgery.

Depending on the situation, the technician or stylist may have to trim or shave off existing hair on the scalp to better fit the style and cut of the hairpiece or hair system/wig. The hair in the hairpiece can be made of human hair, or synthetic artificial materials. At the base of each headpiece or wig is a foundation made up of either polyester or nylon fabric mesh, and a layer of either polyurethane or silicone polymers. The most expensive hairpieces are made of human hair also known as “Remy” hair and must be given special care and attention. Some semi-permanent solutions are applied and maintained by a trained professional and must be replaced every six to eight weeks.

Weaves and extensions which can be attached to existing hair and provide additional volume. These may be attached by metal clips or adhesive tapes or even hand woven onto your existing hair. These are easy to apply by a trained professional but to achieve a natural look depends on how you apply the hair. Do not confuse hair replacement hair extensions with over the counter solutions. Those are very different and can even cause Traction Alopecia.
