It is estimated that every 13th man opts for a hair transplant surgery. While hair transplants are quite popular, they might not be the best option for hair restoration. Several factors determine the eligibility for hair transplants, such as prior medical history, existing medical conditions, allergies to anesthetics, and even personal preferences for non-invasive procedures. Before you move forward with a surgical method, consider non-surgical treatment of hair loss.

What is Non-Surgical Hair Replacement?

Non-surgical hair replacement systems are designed to provide a full-looking head of hair without any surgical procedures being performed.

Non-surgical hair replacement involves applying a lightweight and transparent membrane to the scalp, which is infused with human hair. This membrane is then attached to the scalp and blended in with the existing hair, to create a natural appearance.

This approach permits the hair in the membrane to be perfectly matched with the already existing hair in regards to color, volume, direction, and length. Also, the membrane attachment to the scalp using FDA-approved bonding materials allows you to wear the membrane even while engaging in sports. Non-surgical hair replacement procedures in the past meant wearing a wig, but modern technologies and procedures help in providing a result that is close to natural-looking hair and is also easier to maintain and live with.

Best Options in Non-Surgical Hair Replacement

There are a few options available for consideration if you are looking for the treatment of hair loss through non-surgical hair replacement. Two widely used and easily available treatment options include scalp micro pigmentation and hair replacement systems.

Hair Replacement Systems

Non-surgical hair replacement systems are essentially wigs or toupées that are artificially attached to the balding area of the scalp to give the impression of a fuller head of hair. However, contrary to the synthetic feeling and artificial wigs that most people associate with the word “toupée,” hair replacement systems come in various forms and are of varying qualities, sometimes virtually impossible to distinguish from real, natural hair.

At the affordable end of the non-surgical hair replacement system market, it is possible to find various stock systems, or hairpieces. These typically have a polyurethane base that rests against your scalp with either artificial or human hair in a plethora of colors and lengths.
While synthetic hair systems tend to look artificial for the most part, many non-surgical hair replacement systems that implement human hair strands can be customized to match your natural hair by a stylist and can often blend in fairly well with your existing hair.

If you go a bit higher on the value chart, the options available are much more natural-looking and customizable. The non-surgical hair replacement system allows you to match the hair color, style, and shape of your head.

You can opt for custom-made non-surgical hair replacement systems that are fitted to the shape and size of your head, but they are more expensive and require a considerable amount of time to custom manufacture. If you opt for more off-the-shelf options, you can save on some of the cost but may have to compromise on the quality and fit of the replacement.

Most non-surgical hair replacement procedures begin with an initial consultation. This style consultation ensures that the hair replacement material is fitted to take a seat naturally along with your existing hair color, volume, and direction.

Membrane material for non-surgical hair replacement can be chosen from a few different options nowadays, however, the most common membrane material includes monofilament, polyurethane, and lace. Generally, the look and feel desired by the client can determine the suggestion of the practitioner. Monofilament may be a porous material and it suits individuals whose scalp has to breathe. polyurethane is extremely discreet and nearly invisible. Whereas the lace material imparts the most indistinguishable and natural-looking results and is commonly used to fill within the hairline or the foremost visible areas of male-pattern baldness clients.

The second key component in the procedure is bonding the membrane to the scalp. The latest, most refined techniques bond the membrane to the scalp with a semi-transparent adhesive that can not be compromised by sweat or water. Some of the existing hair on the scalp will need to be shaved away to enable the adhesive to bond and stick directly to the scalp.

Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp Micropigmentation is the other non-surgical method for hair replacement. The procedure uses small, tattooed dots to impart the appearance of a fuller scalp and thicker hair. However, this procedure doesn’t replace hair. The pigmented dots imprinted on the scalp by micro pigmentation can help to cover up thinning areas of the scalp and replicate the look of a fuller head.

Micropigmentation is used to cosmetically treat a variety of types of hair loss ailments like alopecia areata, scarring alopecias, and male pattern baldness.
It is also widely used to cover up scarring from hair transplant surgery which can often leave significant scars on the scalp if not performed with modern equipment and techniques by specialized surgeons with vast experience.

Perfect Candidate for Non-Surgical Hair Replacement

In case traditional courses of therapy such as topical solutions of finasteride and minoxidil do not work for some men, and in case you do not want to opt for a hair transplant, non-surgical hair replacement can be a viable option.

Hair transplant is a surgical option for men who are not in advanced stages of hair loss, as it allows follicles to be transferred to the bald patch from a “donor site”. However, the procedure has a long recovery process and can lead to complications if proper care is not taken during and after the surgery. Also, the effectiveness of the surgery relies on already having a good volume of existing hair to be transplanted from the ‘donor area’.

Additionally, if hair fall does not stop in the future, then the procedure may need to be repeated. At some stage, the hair follicles may not be left in enough quantity to be viable for transplant. Not to mention, the monetary cost and the time investment to get the procedure done are also high.

Non-surgical hair replacement does not face these problems as it does not tamper with or remove the existing hair. This option is worth trying in men who are not willing to go for surgery or are looking for non-invasive methods of hair replacement.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
