Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take before I begin seeing results?

It depends on both the cause of your hair loss and the type of solution you choose with our guidance. Many of our cosmetic options deliver results in a single appointment. In fact, some of the results are so significant that we've had clients split application into stages to avoid too drastic a change all at once. If we recommend a more diverse hair restoration plan for you that uses more than one solution, you will likely see some results right away while others develop over time. In the case of hair loss prevention, you should see fewer shedding hairs within just a few weeks of starting your plan. And if you're one of the lucky few that need only Laser Hair Therapy to stop your hair loss, results will be subtle and show up over time. For laser therapy we usually recommend a 1-year program.

How much will my hair restoration cost?

As little as possible for the right solution. This question is kind of like walking into a car dealership and asking how much a car will cost. The answer totally depends on you. What we can promise you is that we won't waste your time and money on solutions that weren't created for your type of hair loss. If keeping costs low is a priority for you, we'll build a hair restoration plan with that in mind. Our job is to get to the bottom of your hair loss during our initial consultation, to use our expertise to recommend effective options, and to make sure the solutions are expertly delivered. We will monitor the success of your hair loss prevention or restoration plan and suggest tweaks if we notice that something else might work better. Don't let fear of the cost keep you from scheduling your free consultation at Raleigh Hair Concepts. By dealing with your hair loss early, you might be able to prevent more significant costs down the road.

Is your Laser Hair Therapy safe?

Our cool, low-level lasers aren't just safe; they're painless, effective, and FDA-approved! Aside from preventing destruction caused by DHT, Laser Hair Therapy enriches your hair and scalp, increasing blood flow and improving the delivery of nutrients to hair follicles. When used appropriately to treat specific types of hair loss, low-level laser light therapy has a success rate of over 93%.

Will I have to do a lot of work to take care of my new hair?

It depends. The most important thing is that you tell us exactly what you're looking for in a hair restoration solution. All of our solutions are incredibly high in quality, so they hold up very well over time. The need for maintenance, however, varies depending on the type of solution we use in your plan. Some options stay in place all the time, and just need a bit of attention a few times a year in our studio. Others are removable and require a bit more attention. We'll start discussing these options in your initial consultation so that the specifics of each solution are always clear to you. No matter what, you won't be unprepared. We'll make sure you know all about your hair restoration plan so that your new hair keeps looking natural as time goes on.

I’ve seen hair replacements that look fake. Will people be able to tell that I’ve used one?

This is exactly why you should come to Raleigh Hair Concepts. In modern America, there is no reason that anyone should be walking around with fake-looking hair plugs or bad hairpieces. Over the last few decades, a lot of work and research has gone into improving hair restoration options so that they look natural. Today at Raleigh Hair Concepts you just have to identify your priorities, and we'll make sure you get the right new hair for your lifestyle.

Do you need your hair to look natural on camera? When you get out of the pool? Do you need it to feel natural when someone runs their hands through it? We have real-hair solutions that incorporate natural hair, engineered materials that go beyond natural hair in their lightness, durability, and style potential, and attachment options that mimic the growth pattern of your natural growing hair. Let us know what's important to you and we'll make sure you get the hair you've been hoping for.

Do we have to just keep trying things until something works?

No. At Raleigh Hair Concepts, our approach is both consultative and strategic. It might take some tweaking to find the combination of solutions that gets you the biggest impact, but we're not just throwing everything at the wall to see what sticks. What that means for you is that your hair loss will be carefully evaluated so that we know what's causing it. Finding out the root cause of your balding or thinning hair gives us clear options for resolving it. That's how we ensure that the solution will fit the problem. We have experts in every major option in the industry, so we put the right hair restoration plan in place for you, then put it into action to get you the biggest possible results.

When a woman notices hair loss, it raises all kinds of red flags. For men, hair loss is rarely a cause for concern. It's almost always caused by one thing – male pattern baldness. But sometimes those odds keep men from getting to the bottom of their hair loss. No matter who you are, when hair starts thinning or shedding, it's important to find out why as early as possible. Your initial evaluation at Raleigh Hair Concepts is valuable not just because it opens up options, but because it helps identify the causes of your hair loss. If we see anything out of the ordinary, you'll know what's going on and who to consult to resolve it.

I don’t want to shave my head. Can I keep the hair I have?

Yes! We know that your own natural, growing hair is the best hair you could possibly have. We do everything we can to stop or at least slow down your hair loss and make the most of the hair you already have. Our specially trained technicians can work wonders to achieve full coverage by adding hair extensions – even for men. It's great if you can visit us for a consultation very early in your hair loss so we can intervene early and find the cause. For some people, laser therapy alone can restore hair growth to normal and prevent future loss. Even if you're expecting chemotherapy in the future, visit us so we can match your natural hair when your hair is gone and get you on the path to full restoration as quickly as possible.
