Hair Loss Therapy

Hair Systems Manchester offers a very comprehensive programme of hair loss therapy for men, women and children. Hair additions come in many formats, and can be tailored to the individuals requirements

The hair loss therapy recommended for people who have lost all their hair for medical reasons, for example as a result of chemotherapy treatment or due to various forms of alopecia, is the wearing of a full wig system. Full wig systems are made from different cap bases and use either synthetic hair and human hair.

The NHS hair loss therapy is to offer patients a synthetic wig. This type of wig has great limitations, synthetic wigs do not wear very well and cannot be styled with heat. Human hair wigs are undoubtedly the better option if a longer term hair loss therapy is required, providing both natural looks and the ability to style them.

Most suppliers sell stock wigs with normally just mono lace caps as a form of hair loss therapy. Here at the Hair Systems Manchester, being master wig makers, our wig systems are bespoke and made to measure. Firstly, a very precise template is made of your head giving exact measurements. We then discuss in great detail with you, any partings, the thickness ( density) you prefer in different areas and the texture of hair required. If you want to wear your hair off the face (exposed hairline), this would require a lace front often with baby hairs. We also discuss what hair colour or combinations of colours you require to create your desired look. This attention to detail ensures clients are satisfied with their choice of hair loss therapy. Contact use for more details regarding this type of hair loss therapy.

Another type of hair loss therapy is a volumising hair replacement systems for suitable for men and women.

The men’s hair replacement systems have bases made from lace for breathable comfort or a very fine ‘skin.’ Skins are very natural but do not have the durability of lace. This form of hair loss therapy can be attached with clips, glue or tape and now with our new innovative ‘Link System.’

Ladies suffer mostly with very thin, fine hair, which gives very little volume or thickness at the top of the head (alopecia Aerate ), or in some case total hair loss at the top of the head. In the former case the structure of the volumising system would be made from lace and or integration material. With the latter the construction of the base would be made from lace.

The next form of hair replacement therapy is laser hair regrowth therapy. This technique involves the use of low light laser technology to regenerate the hair follicles together with aftercare products including products such as dihydrotestosterone (DHT) blockers to promote healthy hair regrowth.Treatment is carried out at Hair Systems Manchester in Swinton, after about ten weeks clients will begin to notice a difference in hair loss and within a year hair should be restored to its former condition.

Another hair replacement therapy, Hair Systems Manchester provides is scalp derma pigmentation. This hair loss therapy is a form of semi-permanent tattooing. The idea is to create the illusion of hair growth on what is otherwise a bald area of the head.

Hair loss in women is far more common than most people imagine, and as a result many women are considering some form of hair loss therapy. Infact about half of all women are affected by hair loss of some kind by age 50. The Hair Systems Manchester has devised a proven FDA approved hair loss therapy treatment to make clients hair grow again. Hair comprises of the hair follicle and the hair shaft. The follicle being alive, lies below the scalp surface and produces the hair strand that is seen growing on the scalp (or on the body and face.)

Of the 100,000 hairs on your head, you need to lose about half before it’s noticeable. For most women when hair loss has become noticeable, it can lead to a lack of confidence and low self esteem. Also many women find styling their hair becomes very difficult as their hair lacks body and volume.

Hair grows in a cycle, from the follicle at an average rate of a centimetre per month. Each hair grows for about four to seven years, then going into its cycle of a resting after which it will fall out. New hair replacing the lost hair starts growing over the next few weeks. At any given time about 85 percent of hair is growing and 15 percent is resting.

Why women may require hair loss therapy
There are many reasons why women lose hair; hormonal imbalances, stress, chemotherapy, and disorders such as trichotillomania are just a few. Certain prescription drugs, the use of harsh chemical relaxers and extremely tight hair braiding can also cause permanent damage to the hair follicle. Any of these reasons may result in clients considering hair loss therapy.

A more common type of hair loss among women is female pattern thinning, or Androgenetic Alopecia. For this we can blame a chemical called Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which builds up around the hair follicle, narrowing and eventually killing both the hair follicle and the hair. The hair follicle’s lack of resistance to DHT is often genetic. Women may consider hair loss therapy to address this condition.

Many women experience hair loss later in life as a result of menopause. The onset of menopause causes a drop off in the production of oestrogen. Oestrogen produces testosterone-blocking enzymes, and testosterone can be freely converted to DHT on the scalp. The result is a shorter hair growth cycle, finer hair, and hair loss. Many women may consider hair loss therapy to overcome menopausal affects on their hair.

Why men may require hair loss therapy
Male pattern baldness falls very much into the same pattern. The difference is that whereas women often find they are left with very fine lifeless hair, many men tend to lose hair completely leading to balding areas. The pattern can start from the front hairline going towards the crown or can start from the crown spreading to the front hairline.

How can hair loss therapy help?
As we have mentioned previously, at the Hair Systems Manchester we offer a very comprehensive range of hair loss therapy.When clients attend the initial hair loss therapy consultation, we will examine your scalp and follicles to determine the hair loss and the state and cycle your follicles are in. Once this is done your scalp will be cleansed with our specially formulated sebum remover. This is very important stage of the hair loss therapy, to further cleanse the scalp we then apply a very special unique conditioner.
