Medical Wigs

Medical Wigs

Most women experience some degree of hair loss in their lives for one reason or another. For some, it may be temporary and specific medical conditions such as Alopecia or Chemotherapy treatments. For other women, it may be genetic, progressive, and permanent. It can be an emotionally difficult situation with which to cope.

At Christoffels Hair Restoration, we offer a caring approach to clients suffering from hair loss or thinning hair due to chemotherapy, alopecia areata, trichotillomania, and other medically related hair loss causes, from the minor to the severe.

If hair replacement is something you want to consider, the highly experienced consultants at Christoffels Hair Restoration in Sioux Falls, South Dakota will help you find the best solution.

Solutions Include:

Hair Prosthesis for Hair Loss

Often insurance covers the cost of a wig or hair prosthesis. We will be happy to work together with your physician to assist you in any way possible.

If you are contemplating a hair prosthesis, you should assume that you will lose all of your hair when you begin chemotherapy treatment. By doing so, your advance planning will assist you considerably in making sure that your custom wig or hair prosthesis has been made to your specifications and needs and will be ready for you.

Your first wig or hair prosthesis should duplicate your hair as closely as possible. (Be conservative in color, length, thickness, and style.) In chemotherapy-related hair loss, it is a good idea to avoid the following: weaves, hair extensions, hair integration, and hair intensifiers.

FAQ

What Causes Hair Loss?

The major cause of hair loss is DHT (Di-Hydro-Testosterone). You can see the circular androgen receptors and blood vessels flowing, but the DHT is blocking the flow of capillaries and blood supply to the Androgen Receptors. Once DHT binds to the androgen receptors, the receptors are no longer able to receive nutrients and energy, which is essential for healthy hair growth. As the DHT continues to cut off the flow of nutrients and energy, the hair eventually dies and falls out.

To combat DHT, the primary cause of hair loss, we combine 8 DHT blockers in a proprietary formula to bind harmlessly to the androgen receptor site. As you can see, the blue DHT blockers bind harmlessly to the androgen receptors and stop the green DHT from binding. Over time, as less DHT binds to the androgen receptors, nutrients and energy can flow freely back into the hair follicle. The hair follicle now grows back into its normal growth phase, and your hair has a chance to grow fuller and thicker into vibrant, healthy hair.

Does Wearing Hats or Helmets Cause Hair Loss?

This is a common misconception. No, hats do not contribute to hair loss.

Can Medications Cause Hair Loss?

Cholesterol-lowering medications and blood pressure medications are among the many drugs that can cause hair loss in men. If you talk to an experienced professional, such as those at Christoffels Hair Restoration, we’ll be able to determine whether or not your hair loss is being exacerbated by drugs.

Cholesterol-lowering medications, oral contraceptives, blood pressure medications, and diet pills are among the many drugs that can cause hair loss in women. If you talk to an experienced professional, such as those at Christoffels Hair Restoration, they will be able to determine whether or not your hair loss is being exacerbated by drugs.

How Much Hair Loss Per Day Is Considered Normal?

The average number of hairs someone loses a day is approximately 100 to 150 hairs. While this may seem like a lot, most men and women have about 150,000 hair follicles on their heads.

Can Hair Loss Be Prevented?

If your hair loss is caused by hair care or styling habits, medications, stress, or diet, there are preventative steps you can take. This would involve altering your habits (eating healthier foods or relaxing your hairstyle.) If your hair loss is caused by genetics or a medical condition, this is where Christoffels Hair Restoration can help. We have years of experience and numerous options to help you recover your hair, whether it is through prevention, replacement, transplant, or alternate means.

Unlike men who often experience receding hairlines, women’s hair loss is typically concentrated at the crown of the head. Women who are balding may notice that their ponytail is thinner than normal, or that they can see their scalp in places they did not notice before.

What Are My Options When I Begin To Lose My Hair?

There are many options available depending on the amount of your hair loss, and the reason for your hair loss. Also, your expectations play a big factor in your options. We recommend that you contact a hair loss professional like Christoffels Hair Restoration and schedule a private consultation and scalp evaluation to review the options that will work best for you. Some options that may be discussed include a low level laser light program to stop or slow down hair loss, other treatment programs to slow down hair loss, which sometimes even causes hair to grow. Or you may be better served with a non-surgical hair solution or hair transplantation.

What Can I Expect At My Consultation?

Plan on 45 minutes to an hour consultation consisting of a medical questionnaire, digital pictures, microscopic pictures and an analysis & a scalp evaluation with a trained hair loss specialist. You will receive a customized treatment plan based solely on your individual hair loss needs and goals. We will help you make a decision on which option is best for you.

Will Hair Transplant Surgery Work for Women?

Yes, some women are good candidates for hair transplant surgery when they have pattern thinning similar to what men have. Women may also be candidates in other circumstances as well, particularly if their female hair loss is associated with a previous surgical procedure. Many women opt for eyebrow transplants as well.

Women have numerous different options when they experience hair loss – anything from adding hair to your existing for a fuller look, to at-home laser hair therapy. The best first step is to call a hair restoration agency, like Christoffels Hair Restoration, and set up a consultation. Our experts will be able to talk you through your potential choices and help you decide which option you prefer.
