When a conventional hair restoration surgery is not workable, an alopecia patient is left with the only option of going in for an artificial hair system.
In hair loss conditions such as alopecia totalis or alopecia universalis, not even the best hair transplant surgeon in Hyderabad can take up a hair transplant procedure.
Reason: Both alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis are severe forms of hair loss conditions that make it impossible for a hair transplant surgeon to attempt even body hair transplant for lack of complete donor hair.
In such a scenario, the most viable hair loss solution is to go for artificial hair restoration methods.
Use of artificial hair restoration systems is not new as recorded history shows that it was prevalent in Egypt during 3000 B.C. The modern era saw its emergence only during the 17th century.
Artificial hair restoration systems may be broadly categorized into three types: natural hair extension, synthetic hair extension and ready-to-wear wigs.
For the first two procedures, one needs the expertise of artificial hair restoration surgeons to get the desired results that Trichos hair transplant centres in Hyderabad can provide for you.
Natural Hair Extension:
In this artificial hair restoration procedure, human hair extension can be attached with glue to one’s hair. When the hair grows, this extension also appears to move further.
Synthetic hair extension:
The synthetic hair extensions are made of fibres that are cheaper when compared to human hair extension. They too can be attached to the hair by glue or through heat fusion process.
Wigs can be made of human hair or synthetic fibre. They don’t need to be attached as it can be worn directly but the size and colour need to be customized.
The disadvantages in artificial hair restoration system outnumber its advantages. For this reason, we at Trichos advanced hair transplant centres in Hyderabad usually discourage them in case a patient has an option to undertake a hair transplant procedure.
The notable disadvantages in artificial hair restoration methods include the following:
There is a costly maintenance process involved for the upkeep of one’s artificial hair restoration systems as it must be taken to the manufacturer for regular servicing.
Its shelf life too is limited. Most likely, it can retain its charm for a year or two but not more.
Strong exposure to sunlight, sweating, shampoos or chemicals can damage its quality.
Use of third-party sourced hair may cause skin allergies if one’s skin sensitivity is not properly tested prior to use.
Due to chances of infection, artificial hair system is not recommended for diabetic patients.
