TYPICAL HAIR LOSS TREATMENTS
Minoxidil has been called the "Miracle Drug" of hair growth. In fact, some articles claim it is the only proven way to grow hair.

Everyone has seen a bad wig or toupee. Some are so obvious you can spot them a mile away. The good news, however, is that not all toupees or hair pieces are bad. You can actually purchase a reasonably "undetectable" hairpiece.
HAIR REPLACEMENT MICRO GRAFTING
This surgical procedure is the most advanced form of transplant. A row of hair bearing skin is taken from the donor area leaving behind a very thin hairline scar - which is easily covered by your own hair. The row of hair bearing skin is then cut into mini micro grafts. These grafts are then placed into small incisions which have been made in the balding area.
ABOUT ELDORADO HAIR LOSS HAIR REPLACEMENT SYSTEMS
It is difficult to determine which system would work best for you without the benefit of seeing your hairline, your scalp, your desired hairstyle, etc. It is like a doctor trying to diagnose a patient over the phone without the benefit of blood tests, pulse rate, temperature or observation of symptoms.
For your benefit, we have listed some of our systems and their descriptions so you have a basic understanding of our processes:
A web like hair system in which your own hair is pulled through openings to give you volume and density. These systems are only for people who have some hair and require density or length.
A fine netting that has an incredibly natural hairline. This is for people who have little or no hair in front.
C. Thin Skin
A thin membrane into which hair is finely inserted. This allows individuals to expose their scalp.
D. Fine Mono
An ultra fine net which is durable and can be used with human hair or synthetic fiber. The variations of this design are so numerous it would be impossible to list all of them.
D. Full Cranial
A system which covers the entire head.
There are dozens of adhesives on the market. Bonding refers to permanent attachment where the system is worn for 3 to 7 weeks, depending on your hair growth rate, oiliness, adhesive compatibility and application protocol.
These systems are removable and employ adhesive, double-sided tape or clips.
Extended Daily Wear
These systems are removable but allow the wearer to remove the unit after 3 to 14 days. Clips are not recommended here as they may pull hair out.
Fusion / Track / Point Bond
Methods of permanent attachment which allow the wearer 3 or more weeks without returning for maintenance.
Note: Attachment method is a lifestyle choice and should be a separate consideration of hair system choice. Have the system and attachment methods explained thoroughly to you.
