What’s the difference between hair replacement and hair restoration?

When considering your hair loss options, you need to do a lot of research into your options and what is best for you and your lifestyle. Not all hair loss treatment options will suit everyone, which is why it’s important to talk to a professional about your situation.

One of the most common questions we get asked, however, is what’s the difference between hair replacement and hair restoration?

Hair Replacement:

Hair replacement is simply covering the area of loss, whether that’s partial or complete hair loss, with a non surgical hair system. These include toupees, hair toppers, wigs, and other hair pieces.

These are generally non-permanent solutions and will need maintenance or upkeep – however, they can be styled to match your existing hair, meaning they can be almost completely unnoticeable.

Hair Restoration and Hair Transplant:

Hair restoration is trying to keep the existing hair on your head through hair regrowth treatment. This aims to keep the hair follicles stimulated again to keep it healthy and growing. Hair transplant falls under this category. While we don’t offer hair transplant surgery here at Meraki Hair Loss Clinic, our team is able to provide advice and aftercare to ensure that you get the best results from the procedure possible.

What Factors Can Affect The Hair Loss Treatment You Receive?

As previously mentioned, there’s a few things that will factor into what hair loss treatment you receive. These include:

  • Lifestyle factors such as sports
  • Whether or not you have any existing hair
  • Your hair loss treatment goals
  • Your budget
  • And more

A  hair loss specialist will be able to consult with you and recommend the best course of action to ensure you go forward in life with confidence. 

To get started with your hair loss treatment, make sure you book a consultation with the team at Meraki Hair Loss Clinic. Feel at ease in our private consultation rooms and let us help you look and feel confident.
