The Hair Restoration Method That Can Give You a Full Head of Hair Immediately
Is your receding hairline slowly moving further away from your forehead? Has male pattern baldness affected your confidence? While there are hair restoration techniques that can help with hair loss, many of them involve invasive surgical techniques. Most people don’t want to go under the knife. Luckily, there is one option that can instantly and painlessly provide you with a full head of hair. The Derma-Graph hair replacement system is the best way to enjoy thick, natural hair without having to undergo surgery. Learn more about this system and why more men are choosing this option rather than surgery.
The Derma-Graph Hair System
Derma-Graph uses the latest technology to create incredibly natural-looking hairpieces. Each toupee is individually crafted to fit your scalp and match your hair color and texture so that the hairpiece looks, feels and behaves just like your own hair. You can run your fingers through it, go swimming, exercise and enjoy all your favorite activities without having to worry about your hair.
Creating your customized hairpiece begins with a consultation where one of our highly experienced technicians will take a sample of your hair and a mold of the scalp area that needs to be covered. This information will be used to create a thin and flexible membrane that looks just like your scalp. From there, the best in European hair that matches your own will be attached to the membrane. Once your hairpiece has been completed, you will return for a visit where it will be attached using a high-tech transdermal process. You will instantly have a full head of hair that can be styled in the latest short cuts for a trendy look that will build your confidence.
Maintaining your hairpiece couldn’t be easier. You can brush and style it as needed and visit our office every 2-4 weeks for a haircut and maintenance. This will ensure that your Derma-Graph hairpiece continues to look great and fit your lifestyle.
Surgical Hair Restoration Alternatives
The only other way to achieve results similar to the Derma-Graph system is to undergo hair restoration surgery. This procedure often involves follicular unit extraction where tiny grafts that contain a few hair follicles are removed from donor areas of your scalp and surgically grafted to other areas where you are experiencing thinning hair. Placing each graft involves making a small incision in your skin with a scalpel and carefully placing the hairs so that they will continue to grow with your natural hair pattern.
What to Expect After Surgery
Removing hair from the donor area will create small red circles, which will eventually be hidden once your hair grows back. A few weeks after surgery, the transplanted hair will fall out completely before it begins to grow. After about three months, you will begin to notice new hair growth. At the six-month mark, your transplanted hair should be growing naturally. At this point, you may want to return for additional surgery to improve hair density.
While follicular unit extraction is considered minimally invasive, your surgeon may recommend a strip technique that involves removing a 6-10 inch strip of scalp. This strip is then cut up into up to 2,000 grafts which are then transplanted to the thinning area.
Recovering from a Hair Transplant
With both techniques, you should expect to undergo about 4 to 8 hours of surgery and miss 2 to 5 days of work as you recover. You will have to wear bandages for a few days and take pain medications along with antibiotics and anti-inflammatories to fight infection and reduce swelling. Once you have healed, your doctor may also prescribe drugs like Rogaine to help with hair growth. As with any surgery, there are risks, including infection and excessive bleeding. Also, there are no guarantees when it comes to results. Hair growth and density will vary among patients.
The Cost of a Hair Transplant
Undergoing surgery can be both painful and expensive. Hair transplants are considered cosmetic procedures, so your insurance company won’t cover any of the costs. You can expect to pay $5,000 to $15,000 totally out of pocket. This doesn’t include lost wages for missing work or the cost of hair growth medications that you may be prescribed.
Non-Surgical Hair Loss Treatments
If you want to avoid the cost, pain, and hassle of a hair transplant surgery, a treatment known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) may be able to improve hair growth over time. This technique uses low-level lasers to promote better circulation and stimulate hair follicles. Early studies have shown that it is safe and effective in providing a 39% increase in hair growth over 16 weeks of use.
While LLLT does provide a painless treatment for hair loss, it may not be the right choice for everyone. LLLT is effective, but you will have to wait several weeks to see results. The lasers are set to a low dosage for safety reasons. This means that it will take time to stimulate follicles and promote growth. If you are looking for a more immediate solution to hair loss, Derma-Graph is your best option.
Why Choose Derma-Graph
Even today’s most advanced surgical hair transplant techniques can be painful and expensive. Non-surgical alternatives are also expensive and don’t guarantee results. Choosing either of these approaches means that you will have to wait for months to see any hair growth. Derma-Graph, on the other hand, costs a fraction of other treatments and will immediately provide you with a full head of natural hair. You don’t have to worry about going under the knife or investing thousands without knowing if the treatment will work.
