Hair replacement services are a non-surgical way to restore lost hair. Licensed cosmetologists and barbers who have completed advanced training in the hair replacement specialty fit new hair to areas with thin or no hair.
Unlike surgical hair transplants, these non-invasive hair replacement systems are virtually undetectable and can restore a full head of hair in just a few weeks.
Hair is one of the essential elements of personal appearance. However, your entire look can suffer when it thins or falls out.
Fortunately, several hair replacement services exist to help you replace lost hair. Hair transplants are among the most common solutions, and they can be effective for both men and women.
In a hair transplant, your surgeon removes healthy hair from one area of your scalp, called the donor site, and transfers it to a place where you have thinning or no hair. The procedure can take several hours, and many patients stay awake.
The procedure can be performed in two ways – Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). In FUT, your surgeon creates grafts by removing strips of tissue from the donor area, dividing them into individual units, then transplanting them to your balding areas.
Non-Surgical Hair Replacement
If you are losing your hair at the temples or have a receding hairline and don’t want to deal with medication or surgical procedures, a non-surgical hair replacement procedure might be the answer.
The procedure involves attaching a thin transparent layer of polyurethane to the scalp, forming a tight membrane that acts as a ‘second layer of skin.’ Then, a layer of human hair is implanted into this area.
The hair matches the patient’s existing hair color, texture, and density. This results in a natural-looking replacement of the lost hair.
Hairpieces are perfect for women who want to conceal thinning or damaged hair. They’re ideal for alopecia, trichotillomania, cancer treatment, and many other conditions that lead to thinning or missing hair.
They are available in several designs, sizes, and densities. They’re known as single or multiple pieces and can be affixed to your scalp in various ways.
Some hairpieces are glued to the scalp using a liquid adhesive called poly fuse or natural bond. It can be a messy process and can make shampooing difficult.
Glued-on hairpieces should be removed and cleaned at least once per week. It is essential if the hairpiece is attached to a thin skin surface. For example, the glue can come loose if you sleep or swim or when your head is sweating heavily. A liquid adhesive remover or solvent can remove the glue from your scalp.
A non-surgical hair loss therapy called scalp micropigmentation can conceal bald spots and thin scalps. The treatment resembles tattooing and mimics the look of closely cut hair follicles by injecting tiny dots of pigment into your scalp’s epidermis.
It can hide bald spots, cover birthmarks or scars, and give you the illusion of fuller, thicker hair. It can also add density to thinned hairlines.
The process involves using a small needle to insert tiny dots of pigment into your scalp’s skin. The coloring is cosmetic-grade inks that look natural and blend with your remaining hair.
One of the most effective and long-lasting treatments for thinning hair is scalp micropigmentation. It can cover bald spots, thinning areas, or scars and help you regain confidence.
