Crewe Hair and Skin Clinic

For advanced hair loss a hair replacement system (also known as a Toupee) is a practical solution for hiding hair loss.

This clinic has access to a wide range of colours in the 3 styles. The Aero Mono, Aero Lace  and MicroLite.

The availability of the colour for each system will vary, so it is recommended that you come to the clinic for a hair replacement system consultation to ensure that you have a colour match and to discuss what is involved.

A small range of hair pieces is available at the clinic. If your preferred colour and style is not available, then the next stage is to  choose 4 pieces and then these can be tried at the clinic at a later date at no additional charge.

The piece can be attached using tape, clips or glue.  Glue is the easiest to manage once fitted, but it is required that the clinic is attended 24-48 hours before the fitting for a patch test.

The hair replacement system can be left on for a week or a month at a time using tape, so if you are living or working in close quarters with people, they don’t need to know!

It is recommended that you return to the clinic every 4-6 weeks for removal, cleansing and regrooming of the hair piece. During the appointment you will be able to have your scalp cleansed and exfoliated.

The piece can take some hours to dry, so it is recommended that you buy 2 hair pieces initially.

You may also wish to use the time waiting for the piece to dry to enjoy one of the clinic’s facials, including the WOW fusion advanced facial, chemical skin peel or Dermalux LED light therapy.

How can I fit the hair piece?

During this time of social distancing, customers are encouraged to fit the hair piece themselves. The clinic can support them in doing this virtually and if required can supply the details of local wig cutters.

Can I get a bespoke wig made?

Yes, if you do not see a hair piece you wish to buy that is ready made.

It is possible to choose the density, curl, parting, internal construction.

The Aero Lace and Mono range do not extend into the curlier hair types, but a bespoke wig can be an acceptable option for those with this hair types within a similar appearance to a ‘man weave’

A formal mould can be taken using the Cyber mould technique at the clinic which gives a far more accurate representation than the traditionally used clingfilm and sellotape mould.  The Cyber mould can be used repeatedly for future hair replacement systems, but should be taken during daylight hours to optimise visibility.

The overall cost of a bespoke hair piece can vary but can be from £450 .  It can take around a week to get an estimate from Trendco Headquarters in Brighton.

If you wish to keep the hairpiece on all the time, to avoid friction frizz, human hair rather than synthetic hair will extend the life of the hair piece which is generally around 3- 6-months. The piece can last longer if cared for appropriately. If you are satisfied it is recommended that you purchase a second hair piece to minimise the down time, as a piece can take around 5 weeks to be made.

A patch test is required 24-48 hours before the day of the fitting if glue is going to be used rather than tape.
