If you’re experiencing hair loss and looking for a solution, hair restoration could be your answer. It can give you the hair you used to have or the head of hair you’ve always dreamed about. Before deciding to try hair restoration, though, it’s important to do your research. Here are the answers to some of the common questions that people have about hair restoration.
1. What are my Options?
The term “hair restoration” encompasses a wide variety of procedures suited to treat different levels and types of hair loss. Some treatment options aim to create the best environment on your scalp for hair growth, such as scalp treatment programs and laser/LED treatments. You can also choose a hair transplant, which is a surgical option. Non-surgical solutions such as Folligraft, Vituesse and Virtual Reality hair replacement are high-quality non-surgical skin grafts that are integrated with your existing hair. Finally, you can opt for less permanent options such as toppers, wigs, hair pieces and hair extensions.

2. How Does it Work?
After visiting with a trichology specialist and completing a hair and scalp analysis you will be presented with hair loss solution options that best fit your needs and desires. If you qualify for a scalp treatment and laser/LED program, you will start a program that creates the best environment for a healthy scalp and hair growth. If you qualify for non- surgical hair replacement you will be able to leave a facility with a full head of hair. If you choose a hair transplant, a doctor will perform your surgery and your hair will be “transplanted” from the back of the head (donor area) to your thinning area while you are under anesthesia.
3. Will it Hurt?
Scalp treatments and laser/led treatments are painless. The laser is a “cool” laser and there is no thermal component. Non-surgical hair replacement is non-invasive and painless. With advancements in anesthesia and hair transplantation techniques pain is minimized. A patients scalp will be sensitive for a few weeks.
4. Will it Look Fake?
Many people worry that hair systems, Folligraft, Virtuesse and Virtual Reality hair replacement will look like a bad toupee. However, these non-surgical hair grafts are highly advanced and match your normal hair growth patterns, making it virtually undetectable. Additionally, these options can be any color, texture, length, or style that you’re looking for. When you get professional hair restoration, you will have a completely natural-looking head of hair.
