What is CNC 3-D Prosthesis?
By using the most technologically advanced, dermatologically-tested, non-invasive hair replacement system found anywhere today, this “Second Scalp” that allows people suffering from hair thinning and loss to enjoy a completely custom made full head of beautiful hair. After taking a mold of your scalp and mapping the areas of hair thinning and loss by a licensed certified center, the Cesare Ragazzi team is then able to take this mold and leverage 3-D Printed Technology to replicate a model of your scalp, perfectly matching the contour and shape of the hair loss site. The model is produced with breathable biopolymer material that becomes your customized “second scalp.”
The prosthesis is hypoallergenic and secured with a dermatologist-approved adhesive and allows you to live a normal life, including swimming, showering, exercising, etc. With a base consisting of antifungal, antimicrobial material, and biomedical materials, it adapts to your body temperature and allows sweat and heat to pass through. Only virgin, unprocessed hair is used in the CNC prosthesis, which makes it the highest quality of human hair. With the CNC 3-D prosthesis, you can truly live your life without compromise!
What are the Steps for Receiving Your New Look?
- We begin with an evaluation of your hair loss by our Trichologist who helps us determine whether you are a good candidate for Second Scalp. This evaluation includes a ScalpCheck® to assess the degree of your hair loss and scalp condition.
- One of our Certified Specialists generates a digital map of your scalp and alopecic areas. This map helps us and our manufacturer ensure your Second Scalp is a precise fit, allows for natural hair movement and appears completely seamless with your current natural hair.
- From the digital map, we utilize proprietary software to construct a digital cast of your scalp that becomes a blueprint for the creation of your Second Scalp.
- We then create an actual replica of your scalp and skull from an exclusive, medically engineered membrane material using robotic technology. This membrane has the exact shape, lines, and colors of your scalp.
- Production specialists select strands of high-quality, unprocessed human hair to help us replicate the color and texture of your hair.
- The production of your Second Scalp continues with each strand individually implanted into the membrane in a way that emulates your scalp’s natural hair patterns.
- This is the exciting point for so many of our guests – the placement and styling. We non-surgically and painlessly attach your Second Scalp, integrating it along the way with your current natural hair. Our professionals cut, blend and style your new hair for an unbelievable new look.
