What’s the Difference Between Hair Extensions and Hair Replacement?

Hair loss can have a massive negative impact on the quality of your life. Many people start to worry and become self-conscious about their image once they notice that their hair is growing noticeable thinner. Hair loss can make it difficult to feel good about yourself, which in turn makes it difficult to go out and enjoy life. The good news is that these days you don't simply have to live with thinning hair. Both hair extensions and hair replacement therapy can be useful for replacing your missing hair and help you regain your confidence.

Hair Extensions

Hair extensions are designed to fill one of two tasks. They can make your hair appear longer, or they can make your hair look thicker.

The most common hair extensions are designed to attach to your current hair strands, adding a significant amount of length. High-quality, carefully applied fusion hair extensions are designed to be worn for up to four months before the process is repeated. The second most common hair extension method involves using a little heat and taping the extensions to your natural hair. Some people opt to have a weave, which involves sewing the extension onto your natural hair.

Most people who wish to make their hair appear thicker than it actually is often opt for clip-in hair extensions, which add a significant amount of volume.

It's possible to use both synthetic or real hair extensions.

Hair Replacement

Individuals who decide they want to replace the hair they've lost have a wide assortment of both surgical and non-surgical therapy options that are designed to help them regrow hair. Mane Image understands that hair replacement therapy isn't a one size fits all clients, which is we offer a wide range of solutions to our clients.

Surgical Hair Replacement Treatments

The surgical hair replacement options we offer men and women include:

  • Follicular Unit Grafting (FUG)
  • Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
  • Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

In combination with the surgical hair replacement options we provide, we also offer our clients the option to take advantage of a procedure called PRP, which involves using your blood to make plasma-rich platelets that we inject back into you. The procedure is safe and helps hasten hair growth. PRP can be used with each of the surgical hair replacement treatments.

While most people assume that all hair loss replacement treatments involve the scalp, it's worth noting that some people are concerned about thinning or missing facial hair. Mane Image offers hair grafting that can help restore eyebrows and beards.

Non-Surgical Hair Replacement Treatments

One of the most popular non-surgical hair replacement treatment offered at Mane Image is the CNC hair prosthesis which involves making a detailed 3-D printed replica of your scalp, which hair is added to. While you're wearing the CNC hair prosthesis, it will be impossible for your friends and family to tell that not everything is your natural hair. The prosthesis is designed to stay comfortable, provide a great deal of air flow, and to be extremely comfortable. You'll frequently forget you have it on.

The prosthesis is designed to fit so well that you can wear it for weeks and not have to worry about taking it on and off again. You treat it exactly as you would your own hair. The only real maintenance needed is heading over to Mane Image after using it for a few weeks. While you're there, an experienced technician will remove the prosthesis and thoroughly clean it with an ionized bath and restore it to your scalp. This is an excellent opportunity to get the hair styled.

Hair loss is something that can happen to both men and women. When you realize your hair is rapidly thinning, it can have a devastating impact on your self-confidence. Mane Image wants to help you get back to looking and feeling fantastic. When you contact us, we'll examine your degree of hair loss and determine why you're experiencing hair loss. Based on what we discover, we'll help you determine which of our outstanding hair loss replacement therapies will provide you with the best results.

Mane Image Hair provides each of our clients with a free confidential consultation. We use this time to get to know you better and help you decide if hair extensions or hair replacement treatment is the best option for you. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can provide you with the full scalp of healthy looking hair you crave!

    It was a very comfortable atmosphere I could say. The after surgery care was, I would rate it as above average. It just makes me feel more confident […] having a full head of hair just boosts that even more. But here, it seems as though, you know, you’ll be treated like family, you feel like family when you come here and I felt real comfortable with that.
