Hair Plugs vs. Hair Implants

If you’re suffering from hair loss, you may be considering your options; for many, the choice comes down to hair implants or hair plugs. Both have their advantages, but for many patients, hair transplant surgery is actually the way to go.

The main reason that many patients may avoid the procedure is because they feel that the results look too obvious. However, the truth is that many modern procedures can be performed with visual difference. That’s because modern procedures cultivate hair from the scalp and implant it to the balding areas for subtle results.

Advantages of Hair Implants
In previous years, it was obvious when a patient had undergone a transplant procedure, leading patients to wear hats until the hair fully grew in. However, new hair restoration services can restore a full head of hair and people won’t be able to tell the difference.

In addition, you can resume your life soon after having the procedure. There may be some redness, but the results will be gradual.

Hair Plugs and Hair Systems
This procedure is quickly becoming an improved part of hair restoration services. If a patient had hair plugs in the past, it was usually fairly obvious, but today, they appear virtually non-existent, with many people opting for them rather than going under the knife.

A hair system uses both real and synthetic hair to create a hairpiece that is virtually indistinguishable from the patient’s real hair. Though it may cost slightly more than a transplant, this is the preferred method for anyone who may prefer a less invasive procedure.

In business since August 1, 1986, I am the president and also a client at The Canadian Institute of Hair & Scalp Specialists. Having worked with a team of Doctors and Chemists over the years I have compiled a great deal of knowledge in this area, originally involved with a Pharmaceutical company manufacturing vitamins for the hair loss industry. Years ago I was fascinated by the new developments in this area as my own hair was beginning to thin. Studying Trichology at the Toronto clinic I then opened my own office and have enjoyed it ever since.
