Men are not the only ones with the concerns of hair loss today. Hair loss is a problem affecting 4 in 10 women (about 22 million women in the United States alone). Know that you are not alone… and neither do you need to deal with it alone.

What does the hair restoration technique involve?
First we begin with an initial consult. The consult ensures that our service is tailored to your existing hair, color and style. Take advantage of our free consult to learn more about the design and selection of hair product(s). From the time of consult, design and completion of your product of choice, it may involve 6 to 8 weeks.
Most people assume that non-surgical hair replacement entails past thoughts and views for toupees and big, heavy wigs. However, this is not the case; the techniques involved today have become quite sophisticated, flawless and invisible to the naked eye.
Basically, the cosmetic hair replacement deals with the application of a light, thin transparent membrane on the scalp infused together with the natural human hair that is entirely hand made. One is able to wear the system with confidence and with no fear that it will come off.
Why choose non-surgical hair replacement?
So why choose non-surgical hair replacement over the other treatments involving surgery for baldness? The most obvious reason is that Minoxidil (for men and/or women) or creams do not always work; non-surgical hair replacement is their best option.
Oftentimes surgery is the last resort. Many people don’t want surgery unless it is absolutely necessary. Surgery takes existing hair and moves it around on your head and success of the surgery relies on having enough existing hair to use. There is also the danger that, should you continue to lose hair in the future, you will need more surgery which will again take away from your existing hair (donor area). Therefore, surgery is not a sustainable treatment. Non-surgical hair replacement avoids these problems as it does not tamper with or remove existing hair.
What are disadvantages to Non-surgical hair replacement?
The one major drawback of non-surgical hair replacement is it requires maintenance for it to have a natural look, maybe 4 to 6 weeks. For example, if you need your hair cut, you cannot just pay a quick visit to the barbers. You generally need to return to the hair replacement professional and the membrane removed and your existing hair trimmed.
Depending on the type of system you have it would need to be replaced at some point. Most clients do get 2 systems to be able to change into one that is ready to install for faster service, and leave the one they have on to be ready for the next visit.
