Hair Transplant Vs Hair Replacement

When it comes to male pattern baldness, the reality is that it affects most men at some stage in their lives. Research in Australia shows that severe balding happens to one in five men in their 20s, one in three in their 30s and nearly half in their 40s!

While some hair loss is normal at any age, saying goodbye to your locks on a larger scale is not easy. If losing your hair is impacting your confidence, making you feel less attractive or even depressed, the good news is that there are top quality treatments available.

Two of the most popular hair loss treatments for men are hair transplants and hair replacements. A hair transplant is a surgical procedure performed under local anaesthetic, while a hair replacement system is a non-invasive hair piece. If you’re considering these options, here’s what you need to know:

How does a Hair Transplant Work?

A hair transplant involves taking hair follicles from one area of your scalp where the hair is continuing to grow and inserting them into the balding areas. The procedure can often require multiple sessions, depending on the severity of your hair loss, and recovery can be quite lengthy and painful as you wait for the bruising and swelling to go down. As hair transplants are considered a cosmetic surgery, they are not covered by Medicare or private health insurance and require a large out-of-pocket investment. Like any other surgery, hair transplants also come with risks including scarring, infection and nerve damage and in some cases the procedure might not work at all.

What are the Benefits of a Hair Transplant?

Results of hair transplant surgery can be good and are permanent if the hair follicles are grafted properly and react well with your scalp. However, every patient will have different results based on the condition of their natural hair. Before you undergo hair transplant surgery, speak to your doctor about a realistic outcome.

How does a Hair Replacement System Work?

A hair replacement system is typically crafted using a polyurethane or lace-up material that sits on your scalp. The systems are applied with the highest levels of hygiene and safety standards, either by fixing them in place using your existing hair or using a dermatologically tested adhesive. The best hair replacements use high-quality, 100% natural human hair for the most luscious, natural-looking results.

Why Should I Choose a Non-Surgical Hair Replacement?

Unlike hair transplant surgery, a hair replacement system is a pain-free, non-surgical and non-invasive alternative that provides you with an instant transformation. Plus, there is no recovery period necessary!

The CNC Hair Replacement System uses 3D printing technology to create a customised hair and scalp prosthesis using top-of-the-range hand-crafted materials. The 100% natural human hair can be cut and styled to suit your individual features and personal taste – just like having your own hair! What’s more, the CNC Hair Replacement System is sun, sea, sweat, and shower proof so you can lead an active and healthy lifestyle without compromise.
