Nonsurgical hair systems have become simple and affordable state-of-the-art hair loss solutions. Suitable for both men and women, hair systems are undetectable can instantly restore your natural, youthful appearance.
Just like fashion and technology, hair replacement techniques have become so sophisticated that each can be perfectly tailored to your look, lifestyle and hair loss needs. So the real decision becomes: which method is right for me? There are choices for men and women with predictable, diagnosed hair loss, hair loss in patches where follicles are dead and those that still have certain amounts of hair, as in the case of alopecia areata. One of the biggest advantages of non-surgical hair replacement — sometimes referred to as a hair system — is that it delivers fullness and density immediately and will work for most people of either gender.
Are hair systems for me?
- I still have hair around my hairline
- I have male pattern baldness
- I’m missing hair in patches that have remained constant
- I’m missing hair only on the top of my head
- What is my budget?
High-end hair systems
A hair system is another word for hair made to take the place of missing hair. On men, it can be at the crown, the hairline, or in some combination thereof. In women (usually called “hair augmentation”) it can be on the top of the head at a thinning part or wherever there is missing hair such as in the case of alopecia areata where patches of thinning are apparent. This type of hair replacement is not to be confused with toupees or wigs, since this is not something that “comes off” at the end of the day. The hair that is applied is semi-permanent in that it is only removed for replenishing or revitalization at the provider’s service facility.
No matter what your hair loss situation, there are many ways available to find as natural-looking solution as possible to cover the thinning or denuded areas. The quality depends on the type of hair and the application methods; you’ll want to consult with a professional in-person to make the choice that’s right for you.
“We will usually choose this route if hair follicles are already dead and would not respond to Propecia, minoxidil or laser light therapy treatments”, Shelly Beatty, owner of StyleMakers Salon in Fort Worth, Texas.
“Volumizer” hair systems
These hair integration hair systems, as they can be called, are great if you still have existing hair and don’t want to shave it or wear a scarf to cover your hair loss. “It’s an excellent choice if you have diffused hair loss which means your hair is thinning and even if you have chunks or patches missing,” says Shelly Beatty, owner of StyleMakers Salon in Fort Worth, Texas. A ‘Reprieve’ is another term for this sort of non-surgical hair augmentation technique in which your existing hair is pulled through the holes of a matrix and is permanently attached so it provides for a very natural looking scalp. You can sleep in it, wash it and partake in normal activities without anyone knowing about your hair loss, says Beatty. “We will usually choose this route if hair follicles are already dead and would not respond to Propecia, Minoxodil or laser light therapy treatments.” These units must be professionally applied and maintained at least monthly by a hair loss professional.
Mail order hair systems
Mail order services exist for you if you’re looking to reduce expenses associated with your hair replacement system or you want the privacy of doing everything yourself. These work best if you have already had your hair loss diagnosed by a professional and have already previously visited a hair replacement/hair loss specialist and had a custom hair system designed. This way you are a knowledgeable consumer. But caution must be observed if you choose to go the “mail order” route: this is a “do it yourself” solution and the results are frequently far less than optimal. If all you seek is a tape-on toupee or a wig, this could be a viable alternative. But for those looking for true hair replacement, it really isn’t something to be contemplated.
The bottom line on hair systems
Every hair replacement option has its own pros and cons that can be best answered by a hair replacement or hair loss professional because all the options depend or your own personal needs and desires. Hair replacement is serious business, since your appearance is at stake. If that matters to you, and you certainly wouldn’t be seeking a hair loss solution if it didn’t, consult the very best professional help available.
