Images International offers non-surgical hair loss solutions. Perhaps you are wondering what we mean by the term “non-surgical”. Rather than surgically transplanting your hair follicles from the back of your head to the front of your head we add hair without the use of a surgical operation. We do this many ways depending on the look you desire and the lifestyle you keep.
What is a Hair Addition?
Images International offers hair additions to give you back the hair that you have lost. There are many different terms for hair additions. You may have heard of some of them, hair grafts, toppers, hair systems, toupees, wigs, hair weaves, hair extensions, hair prostheses, etc. The hair used can be either human hair, synthetic or a blend of both.
How Do You Wear a Hair Addition?
Hair additions can be worn in a few different ways. They can be attached to your own existing hair using clips, tapes and bonding techniques. Your lifestyle will determine which method you are best suited for. Attaching a hair addition to your own hair allows us to give you the look of your dreams without altering your existing hair.
We can also attach a hair addition directly onto your skin. This offers an extremely natural appearance as if the hair is growing directly out of your scalp. There has been so much innovation in the hair replacement field and now with vacuum bases, the membrane is suctioned onto the scalp for a tight fit that will not budge. Clients love the opportunity to swim and workout with worrying about their hair.
Important Things to Consider
There are a few things to know when you are researching non-surgical hair replacement.
• First, we always recommend a patch test when using an adhesive. While we use medical grade adhesives, there is always the chance that an allergic reaction may occur when applying anything new to the skin. We carry over 18 different adhesives and so if one causes a reaction, we will choose another that works safely and effectively.
• While clipping on a hair addition allows an effective temporary way to wear hair, you will always risk causing permanent loss to the area of attachment due to the tension the clips cause on the hair follicle. Using temporary taping and bonding methods on hair enhancements do not cause tension if performed correctly.
• We urge our hair wearing clients to keep a regular maintenance schedule. It is important that at least monthly the addition is removed, and the scalp is cleaned.
At Images International hair health is our main priority. Hair additions are the safest method of achieving more hair. We are experts at giving you the look you desire while also protecting your existing hair.
