What you need to know
Marcos visited our clinic a few months ago with a hair replacement he purchased online. He was not interested in our clinical assessment because he thought we could apply his generic hair replacement. We explained him the risks and reasons to deny our treatment. Marcos left very angry with our decision.
He returned to our clinic a few months later. He was very ashamed because he applied the hair piece in another place without privacy. Also he was mocked constantly for wearing a toupee that did not match his natural hair color.
People like Marcos visit our clinic very often. Some leave our office with disappointment, angry or unhappy because they are deceived by Internet research. They find promotional videos who made them believe buying or applying a hair replacement is as easy as counting from one to three. It’s very hard and sad for us to face people like Marcos. That’s why share the truth about buying hair replacements online.

Theres dozens of conditions and factors associated to lack or hair loss. Therefore, there’s a wide variety of toupees and adhesives to glue this pieces. The styles, costs, materials and sizes of hair replacements are countless. Some pieces maintain the scalp healthy and others can cause serious skin conditions.
