What’s covered?

Non-surgical hair replacement is an excellent option for anyone who wants to restore their hair. It can be done in various ways, including with a simple system that attaches natural human hair to a breathable base or cap. Non-surgical hair replacement can also come with custom fitting and cutting, which means getting the perfect cut for your head shape and face contours. It may take some time before you are ready to have surgery on your scalp, but non-surgical options make it easier!

What is non-surgical hair replacement?

Non-surgical hair replacement refers to implanting artificial hair into a person's scalp, which will grow as natural hair.

The procedure is carried out under local anaesthesia and does not require stitches or sutures. You will also receive instructions on how to care for your new locks.


Who needs hair replacement?

It's important to understand that for some people, the cause of hair loss can be genetic. For example, those with a family history of male pattern baldness or known as androgenetic alopecia may start losing their hair at a young age. If you're experiencing hair loss due to genetics or a medical condition that causes it (such as alopecia areata), non-surgical treatments may not be an option.

However, your doctor must address these factors if your hair loss is caused by stress or poor diet and lifestyle choices before moving forward with surgery or other treatment options.

The Welzo Hair Loss Blood Test can provide information as to why you are prone to suffering from hair loss.


How does non-surgical hair replacement work?

Non-surgical hair replacement is attached to a breathable base or cap, which can be worn for up to three days at a time.

The attachment can be styled and cut to match your own hair, allowing you to wear it in any style that suits you.

Unlike traditional wigs and hairpieces, this type of non-surgical hair replacement is made from natural human hair that has been hand-tied into tiny strands called "follicular units."

These follicular units are then placed on the base cap using a natural adhesive called cyanoacrylate (also known as super glue).

What are the advantages of non-surgical hair replacement?

You can use non-surgical hair replacement for a variety of reasons. It offers an affordable method of concealing balding or thinning hair and adding volume and fullness to thin hair.

Unlike a hair transplant surgery, a non-surgical hair replacement system, also known as non surgical hair restoration, is non invasive, meaning there is no need for skin break.


Is non-surgical hair replacement safe?

Non-surgical hair replacement is clinically proven and considered a safe procedure, even for sensitive scalps in most cases. Non surgical hair replacements are also cost effective when compared to hair transplants. However, some people may not be able to undergo the procedure due to medical conditions or personal history. In that case, you should seek professional medical advice before considering a non surgical procedure.

However, suppose you have alopecia areata—an autoimmune disease that causes your body to destroy its hair follicles. In that case, you should speak with your doctor before getting non-surgical hair replacement surgery because there's no evidence yet showing how effective this treatment is for people with this condition.

How do you find the right place to get a non-surgical hair system?

Find a clinic that specialises in non-surgical hair replacement. It will help if you look for a clinic with experience with non-surgical hair systems willing to show examples of their work.

Ask your friends, family, and colleagues for recommendations. It is always good to ask those who have used the same treatment as you what they liked and disliked about their experience.

Check online reviews of clinics on websites such as Yelp or Google Reviews (or similar sites). The more reviews there are for a particular clinic, the better idea you will have about whether or not it is reputable and worth your time/money.

Visit the clinic in person to see if it is a good fit for you—you don't want to end up somewhere where the staff doesn't treat you well!


Is a non-surgical hair system right for you?

Firstly, you must prepare yourself by considering whether you have the time and expenses required to maintain a hair system. Also, you need to be ready for the emotional impact of losing your hair.

If you are unable to commit this much time and energy to maintain your look, then non-surgical hair replacement may not be suitable for you.

Who is likely to consider a non-surgical hair replacement system?

  • People with thinning areas or bald spots on their head due to genetics or ageing who don't want to undergo surgery for many reasons: cost, pain, recovery time etc.
  • People who have damaged their hair through excessive styling (colouring or perming), heat damage from hot irons/blow dryers etc., chemical treatments (relaxers), and illnesses such as cancer treatment cause some loss of natural hair growth.


How does non-surgical hair replacement work?

Non surgical/artificial wigs are made with 100% actual human Remy fibres that look and feel like natural scalp - but they won't catch on your clothes! The strands are hand-knotted into tiny braids that are then sewn together to form one piece, so that there are no parting lines at all when worn correctly.


The advantages of non-surgical hair replacement are that it is affordable, easy to care for and offers natural looking results. Non-surgical hair replacement is also referred to as "hair system" or "hairpiece" and is considered one of the excellent non invasive hair loss solutions.

However, it would be great to always look for the best hair replacement system. Visiting a reliable hair clinic that offers free consultation is one of the best ways to ask for advice about hair loss treatment.
