Balding is some people’s biggest fear in Long Island and throughout the United States. And when the hair on an individual’s head starts thinning and falling out, sometimes panic sets in, as well as a raised level of self-consciousness. For those who are going through this ordeal, a business that specializes in hair restoration in Long Island may be a good option to regain the desired look they are looking for; plus rebuild their confidence regarding their overall appearance. Dolores McRobb, the vice president of Riviera Hair Restoration shares her thoughts and experiences with the type of person who is a good candidate for non-surgical hair restoration. According to McRobb, once people can get past their concern of the dramatic change (or perceived change) in their appearance, and not worry so much about what others think, they are psychologically ready for some sort of hair restoration. There are various reasons why female and male hair restoration in Long Island needs to be of a non-surgical nature according to McRobb:
- An individual may not have enough donor hair to take from and put elsewhere on their head
- A person may have too much area to cover with surgical restoration and thus surgical restoration won’t be able to achieve the hair density the patient is looking for
- May be a complication of rejection with surgical restoration or the possibility of infection
What McRobb points out is that while surgical restoration can and does work, you still need to have enough hair from another part of your body to take from in order to get the desired effect. Once a person realizes that a surgical hair restoration in a Long Island facility is not the best fit for his or her follicle foible, then a non-surgical direction could be a positive direction to take. McRobb describes the steps of the process:
- Consultation – here the hair restoration professional will speak to you about your hopes and expectations. Measurements and observations will be taken of the area at this point. Also, your hair texture and color will be matched.
- Desired style or look will be discussed
- Questions about your lifestyle (activities you regularly participate in like swimming, etc.)
- Hair is placed on area of your head with a medical grade bond. There is an extremely low rate of allergic reaction to this bond, plus its strength is very reliable.
- Cut and style the hair to work it in naturally with your existing natural coif.
McRobb, shares that if the hair restoration is done by a trained professional, then nobody will realize that all the hair on your head is not your own. Pricing for hair restoration ranges from $2400 – $8000 annually. The reason for the great disparity in price is due to the amount of systems you want per year, and the type of hair you are using for your restoration. So while $200 to nearly $700 per month seems like a large investment to the outsider, to the person who wants to feel whole again, it’s well worth the investment.
