Hair Replacement for Men
According to the American hair Loss Association, more than 95% of male hair loss is caused by Adrogenetic Alopecia, or male pattern baldness, which is an imbalance in hormones. While medications are available to slow the progression of hair loss, the only permanent solution is hair transplantation through surgery. The alternative to these is a temporary or semi-permanent solution, such as a hair piece or grafting service.
Grafting and Bonding Services are semi-permanent solutions for hair loss, requiring a bit more maintenance, yet the results are phenomenal. A mold is made of the scalp, noting all details of the scalp and hair line. A graft is created based on the scalp and the clients' hair color. The graft is bonded onto the scalp using medical grade adhesive and then cut to the appropriate length and style of the hair. Once applied, the base of the graft becomes like a second layer of skin, giving the appearance of natural growing hair. The graft remains intact and all activities, including swimming, exercising, and showering, can be performed. Visits are usually every 3-4 weeks to remove and replace the graft and most clients rotate through 2-6 per year, depending on the style and durability of the graft.
Hair Replacement for Women
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, some 30 million women are affected by hair loss. One type of genetic predisposition female hair loss is androgenic alopecia. An excess buildup of these types of hormones in the hair follicle causes it to shrink, resulting in the more common term of female pattern hair loss.
Other factors, such as stress and anxiety, a vitamin deficiency, certain medications and chemotherapy drugs, can also cause hair loss. Total hair loss could be result of a diagnosis of alopecia universalis, an uncommon irreversible form of alopecia where all hair of the body and scalp is lost. In any of these situations, a wig would be recommended because it may be taken on and off at the clients convenience.
If female pattern hair loss is the true diagnosis, grafting and bonding services can be an appropriate solution. Hair is added to the balding area through hair grafts and bonding, allowing it to blend and move with the current hair. These types of bonds are semi-permanent, allowing the client to maintain their everyday activities, including exercising and showering. Once the graft is applied, it becomes like a second layer of skin giving the appearance of natural hair growth.
