Replacing hair that has been lost can sometimes be difficult, especially in cases of advanced hair loss. At this point in time, the very best solution that works and is safe while giving a very natural look is a hair transplant. There are, of course, other options for hair replacement such as wigs or even artificial hair implants. Other treatments such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or LLLT (low-level laser therapy) will not replace hairs, but they are great at maintaining hair and restoring it to its best shape.
There are some hair restoration doctors in the world who are using this technique to replace hair in areas that are bald. The process involves implanting synthetic hair fibres into the patient’s scalp. At the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic, we don’t currently feel that this is a practical solution to any type of hair loss because it is still too primitive and therefore unsafe. The key point to keep in mind about this treatment is that a foreign object is being implanted into your body. So the body will start to try and fight off this foreign invader. We have heard horror stories of disastrous results using this technique.
