When a person has alopecia they can lose their hair anywhere on their body. They can even lose nose and ear hair. Alopecia mostly strips the top of the head where hair usually implies good health and good looks. People can look at you and tell you’re sick. Alopecia victims have special needs. Men and women with hair loss dream of the “magic bullet”, that special vitamin treatment that will reverse their hair loss. Alopecia victims seek non-surgical solutions. They just want to look like they did before they lost their hair. Hair loss is a multifactorial problem affected by genetics, hormones, and environmental issues, as well as diet and daily activity.
So, how does Advanced Hair Center get an Alopecia victim to look exactly like they did before they lost their hair?
A cranial prosthesis is a hair piece system designed specifically for those suffering from hair loss due to medical conditions. Prostheses contain a combination of fabrics and compounds that are used to re-create natural hair growth patterns and the look of the scalp. All materials in the hair pieces are treated to resist dirt, oils, and body acids while providing maximum comfort.
Cranial hair prostheses are different than department store wigs in quality, performance, and service. Prostheses are made with specialized material – sensitive to the needs of the individual. They come in a variety of styles and colors. Each hair piece is adjusted to a person’s size, and is also custom cut and styled. A department store wig has a set style, and what you see is what you get. Often, they don’t fit correctly and have a heavy, fuller appearance.
Service plays an important role when selecting hair pieces. Wigs ordered through the mail can sometimes be a guessing game with respect to actual color. Styling it yourself may also be difficult. We specialize in hair loss and have been trained and educated in working with prostheses. Advanced Hair Center can design the perfect cranial prosthesis, and possess the knowledge and skills for cutting and styling a hair piece as well.
