Today we’re going to talk about the four most recommended hair replacement options and their main features. So read on and find out about the most popular hair replacement options to overcome hair loss:
- Hair transplantation
Hair transplants are often the first thought of by men who suffer from permanent hair loss. The hair replacement option is a surgical technique in which hair follicles from one part of the body are moved to the bald area of the head. Surgeons usually remove these follicles from the back or side of the scalp and move them to the front or top of the head. During the treatment, the surgeon will numb the bald area of your scalp with small needles filled with local anesthesia. The cost of this hair replacement method usually ranges from $4000 to $15000, depending on the amount of hair being moved.
In addition to being expensive, hair transplantation has considerable side effects. The following are the major complications reported after treatment: scalp bleeding around the treatment site; scalp infection; headache; scarring; and age-related hair loss in other areas
- Hair replacement system
Hair replacement system is currently known as the safest hair recovery option on the market. Wearing a hair system allows men and women to fill their heads with hair without expensive medical surgery. They are also known as wigs, modern wigs, hair replacement systems, but whatever you call them, they all use human hair and high-quality base materials to cover the bald area of the scalp in a very realistic way.
The base of the hair system may be made of a polymer, a mesh, or a combination of both. Both materials provide a natural and undetectable hairline. The hair system can be fixed with tape, glue or clips.
Lavivid hair offers hair replacement products with stock and custom options. The hair system can be customized according to the needs of customers, such as hair length, color, thickness, texture, etc.
Why hair loss solutions are becoming more popular: they give a surreal look; they’re super comfortable; they’re the cheapest hair recovery option for men and women; they don’t have harmful side effects
Finasteride is mainly used to treat prostatic hypertrophy, but it is also known to treat male and female type baldness. Finasteride does this by reducing levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone responsible for reducing hair follicles on the scalp. It takes about four to six months to see any effect on the scalp. Before using this hair substitute, we recommend that you see your doctor first as the drug contains inactive ingredients that can cause allergic reactions to the scalp.
These are some of the typical side effects of finasteride:
Side effects: decreased libido, swelling of hands and feet, rash, etc
We can’t deny the popularity of minoxidil as a hair substitute. It is a topical drug used to stimulate hair growth in men and women with hair loss problems. Minoxidil can be used in the form of liquid or foam and increase blood flow to the hair by expanding the blood vessels in the scalp. Minoxidil needs patience. Epidemiologists around the world suggest that it usually takes months to see the effect of hair replacement. That’s because drugs start to grow fresh on certain hair follicles, which takes a long time.
Minoxidil has its own series of side effects
Minoxidil can increase your heart rate and cause chest pain
Excessive use of minoxidil can lead to poor cardiac function
May cause swelling of hands or feet
All hair replacement options listed above have been used worldwide to overcome temporary and permanent hair loss. With the exception of hair replacement systems, all hair recovery solutions should be considered after consulting a qualified practitioner.
