Hair System and Hair Restoration Methods
Men and women who are experiencing hair loss often seek out different forms of hair restoration. While hair loss is typically a natural process, it can result in a person feeling self-conscious, or can simply result in a look that you may not feel accurately reflects your lifestyle and personal preferences.
Researching Hair Loss Solutions
When researching hair loss solutions, you will want to find one that works the best for you. These solutions tend to fall under two categories:
Surgical Hair Transplant
Some people undergo extensive surgery, involving various types of grafting techniques, scalp reduction, or tissue expansion in order to restore the look of a whole head of hair. This type of surgery is often performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, and involves the removal of hair-bearing skin from one area of the scalp, replacing it in an area that is balding or thinning. To look natural, this type of hair transplant surgery requires a skilled physician who is competent at placing the grafts in an appropriate pattern for your scalp and hair. It typically cannot be corrected once in place. This option usually involves anesthesia, medication to avoid infection, and recovery time spent away from work and recreational activities.
Non Surgical Hair Transplant
This type of hair system is less invasive and painful than the surgical methods available, and does not require recovery or down time. Instead, it involves the use of natural hair applied to the head via adhesive technologies. This option does not require any medical procedures, and can be performed by a skilled stylist in a comfortable environment. It also does not require time away from work for recovery. A good non surgical hair restoration system will usually last for several weeks and require replacement every 2 to 4 months to avoid fading and depending on your individual lifestyle. It will also not be detectable, even under close scrutiny.
