Chicago, IL (PressExposure) September 05, 2009 -- White Cliffs Hair Studio, a Chicago-based hair loss solutions company, has announced their release of an innovative nonsurgical hair replacement solution specifically designed for medical hair replacement applications. The so-called "HRD" or "Hair Reconstruction Device" hair system - a state-of-the-art Cancer Wig - answers the unique needs of those in the Chicago area who have suffered impermanent hair loss due to Cancer treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy.
"This is not like the simple Cancer wigs that all of the Chicago hair replacement studios are currently offering," says Paul Sandor, owner and operator of White Cliffs' Chicago hair replacement [http://www.whitecliffsgroup.com/Chicago-Hair-Replacement.htm] studio. "Our HRD Cancer wig is sturdy and durable and exactly duplicates the patient's hair to what it looked like before the hair loss occurred."
More importantly, the HRD Cancer wig, while only a temporary solution until a patient's hair grows back, can be adhered to the patient's head for extended periods of time. This allows the patient to perform all normal living activities while wearing the HRC Cancer wig including exercising and showering and sleeping.
According to Sandor, the process is a simple one. "After the diagnosis, the patient comes into our studio before the radiation or chemo treatment, the earlier the better. We will then design the hair system, or "Cancer wig" to exactly duplicate the patient's hair as it is before she loses that hair," says Sandor. "We're talking about the hair texture, color, density, part and hairline. The works."
For many years, medical experts have insisted that Cancer patients who are able to go through the process of the difficult treatments, like radiation and chemotherapy, will heal faster and easier if they look in the mirror and see a healthier self looking back at them.
Linda Sweeny of Round Lake Beach, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, lost her hair after chemotherapy. "I never saw myself looking so ill," said Sweeny. "The hospital helped me with my hair system while I was still being treated. When I came home, I never had to see myself without hair and neither did my children. In the end, it allowed us all to feel better. Because I was able to live in this particular Cancer wig, I didn't have to wear a non-custom wig that altered my appearance in a different way and my neighbors and co-workers never knew I was sick. That's how I wanted it."
Sandor is quick to point out that even the best, most expertly made Cancer wigs [http://www.whitecliffsgroup.com/Cancer-Wigs-Hair-Loss/Cancer-Wigs-Hair-Systems.htm] can only be as good as the professionals who maintain it for the patients throughout the process. "The FDA has listed our solution as an acceptable prosthetic for this application," says Sandor. "But even more important than that is the level of training our staff has undertaken to apply these Cancer wigs to a patient so that it looks natural and undetectable."
The White Cliffs Chicago hair replacement staff is highly trained and that, along with their natural talent and compassion for this very special group of clients, is allowing White Cliffs Hair Studio of Chicago to offer Cancer patients something unique and different that actually works helps them not just to look better but to feel better.
