Hair is an incredible form of self-expression, and hair loss can strike an especially crippling blow to those fighting cancer or enduring other conditions including Alopecia, Trichtillomania, Celiac disease, genetics and even stress. We can help you feel like yourself again.
A recent study revealed that nearly 60 percent of women consider hair loss the most dreaded side effect they face when undergoing chemotherapy. Wigs offer a positive and beautiful hair solution to help you feel more comfortable during this delicate time and helps you maintain a positive self-image during chemotherapy or other medical treatments.
What is a cranial prosthesis?
A cranial prosthesis is a hair system designed specifically for those suffering from hair loss due to medical conditions. These prostheses contain fabrics and compounds that create natural looking hair growth patterns and a natural looking scalp. All materials are designed to provide maximum comfort and we can offer the right solution for you with toppers, wiglets and full wigs.
When to get a wig
If you are about to undergo chemotherapy, consult with your medical team and ask if you need to prepare for full hair loss. Try to pick out your wig BEFORE your chemotherapy begins. You’ll have more energy. Plus, our stylist will be able to see your natural hair color and style to select the perfect wig solution so you can continue normalcy in your life.
Covering the cost of a wig
If you lose hair due to a medical-related hair issue, most health insurance companies cover part or all of the cost of the wig if your doctor writes a prescription. If you expect to lose your hair, ask for a prescription for an “extra-cranial prosthesis” (that is, a wig!) to submit to your insurer. Please refer to your insurance policy. We provide qualifying medical insurance receipts.
