Choosing the right hair restoration process can often be difficult for those suffering from hair loss. In general, people often have to choose between a hair transplant or hair replacement.

There are a lot of misunderstandings surrounding the different hair restoration treatments – what is the difference and which one is better?

As a leading specialist in both hair transplant surgery and hair replacement treatment, we thought we would provide you with some expert advice on both so that you can make an informed decision.

Hair Transplant

KSL offer a hair transplant procedure that is referred to as Follicle Unit Extraction (FUE Transplants). This is a surgical procedure that is carried out under local anaesthetic. It involves harvesting hair from elsewhere on the body by removing each hair root individually. It is then transplanted follicle by follicle onto the hairless parts of the head. To qualify for surgery, it’s important that you have enough hair on the back or sides of your head.

FUE requires no long periods of rest and can actually be done within a single day. There is no scarring after the procedure, no stiches are required and the healing process is extremely minimal. Around 5,000 transplants can be taken per session which means it’s quick and reliable.

Hair transplant surgery is best suited for those who want a natural solution that will last for their entire life. It costs more money but is a fantastic investment!

Hair Replacement

Hair replacement is considered as being a quick and thorough way to give people natural looking hair. It’s referred to as being the N01 non-surgical treatment in the world.

KSL individually tailor their hair replacement procedure so that the replacement real human hair expertly matches your own natural hair. This means matching the colour tone, complexion, facial structure and age – providing you with a natural look. It’s held in place with a specialised bonding method and an invisible medical grade adhesive.

Hair replacement is best for those who are looking for a dramatic change straight away. It’s also better suited for those who have suffered extensive hair loss that leaves them with not enough hair to qualify for a hair transplant – there are not enough donor grafts available.
