The Confident Reflections series offers a selection of products that have been designed to allow women to choose the product features that will enhance their lifestyle and provide a cranial hair prosthesis that fits well, is comfortable and has a natural appearance.
What is the difference in a cranial hair prosthesis and a wig? Generally specialty wigs that are designed for medical hair loss are sometimes referred to as a cranial hair prosthesis by physicians, insurance companies and the medical community. This medical terminology may be used to obtain reimbursement from insurance companies for the hair replacement product you select to replace the lost hair due to the condition of Alopecia, chemotherapy treatments or another medical condition. In some cases a letter of medical necessity may be important to have from your physician. This will help the insurance company to understand the importance and need for obtaining the cranial hair prosthesis.
The specially crafted wigs have been carefully and thoughtfully selected to provide quality human hair, European hair and synthetic fiber wig solutions. The human hair and European hair that is used in the cranial hair prosthesis has a special treatment to eliminate tangling which makes it much easier to care for, style and maintain.
The combination of the base materials provides a secure fit that will not shift with either the thin skin like material or the silicone material in areas of the cap. The base of some of the wigs can be trimmed to fit the individual head and desired hairline. This cap that provides the suction type fit also has monofilament areas for the scalp to breathe.
The cranial hair prosthesis that we provide can be removed by you at any time and it is not necessary to use any type of liquid bonding adhesive. If you feel like you would like some extra security on windy days you can use a very small amount of a medical grade transparent tape on the thin skin material that is on some of the caps. This will allow you to keep your scalp clean underneath the wig which can be removed at any time you wish to do so.
There are many wig solutions and there is a quick product guide available so that you can determine which cranial hair prosthesis might be a good fit for you. The guide will list all of the product specifications and special features of each product that could be a good solution for your particular hair loss condition.
