Thinning hair has been a source of anguish for a lot of people for the longest time. Often, the media gives society unrealistic expectations when it comes to hair. Mainstream TV and movies have convinced us that beautiful people always have thick and luscious hair.
However, that is not the case. There are millions of people out there who have naturally thinning hair, or are balding. This is not something to be ashamed of, and there are hair replacement solutions that are available to the public.
Hair loss, or alopecia, is caused by a number of factors. While stress and an unhealthy lifestyle can lead to premature hair loss, almost 95% of hair loss in men is caused by genetics. Androgenetic Alopecia, or male pattern baldness, affects two-thirds of men by the age of 35.
Although pattern baldness is often associated with men, it can also happen to women. In fact, about 40%, or a third of women in the country are afflicted with thinning hair or rapid hair loss.
Pattern baldness can occur early, with some patients reporting thinning hair or hair loss by the age of 21. Pattern baldness starts with a receding of the hairline, forming an M shape as the hair moves backwards. Over time, the hair at the top of the head starts to get finer and thins out, creating a horseshoe shape around the sides of the scalp.
While thinning hair or pattern baldness is physically painless, it does cause emotional and psychological anxiety. Often, people undergo surgery to correct their thinning hair.
Hair transplant surgery can be both expensive and dangerous. Most often, non-surgical hair replacement solutions cost less, is safer, and more effective than hair transplant surgery.
Non-surgical Solutions to Hair Loss
At the moment, only two pharmaceutical treatments are approved by the FDA, Rogaine (minoxidil) and Propecia (finasteride). The two drugs are currently only available for men, and while they’ve seen promising results, hair loss returns once intake of the drug is stopped.
For a longer-lasting solution, it is advisable to seek hair replacement solutions instead. These are non-surgical, non-invasive, cosmetic products that enhance the appearance of hair on the scalp.
In South Carolina, Tony’s Hair Replacement Systems is the only studio that offers Derma Lens application. Derma Lens is a revolutionary hair replacement system that is a hassle-free, non-surgical cosmetic option that gives men the kind of hair they used to have.
Dermal Lens uses real hair that is injected into a very thin, flexible, and translucent silicone lens. The lens is then attached to your scalp, giving you the look and feel of natural hair. Because it uses real hair, the Derma Lens solution requires no other at home maintenance other than normal shampoo and conditioner.
The Virtuésse hair replacement system for women operates on the same technology as the Derma Lens for men and is designed to have natural-looking hair patterns. The Virtuésse system requires no additional at home maintenance other than regular hair care and can be styled just like regular hair.
