What is a Non-Surgical Hair Replacement?
Why we created The Evolve Effect Cranial Prosthesis
Did you know?
Non-Surgical Hair Replacement can be covered by your Healthcare Insurance Plan!
Cranial Prosthesis / Non surgical hair replacement
Medical Hair Replacements are formally known as a Cranial Prosthetic / Prosthesis. Cranial Prosthesis is the Medical term for a wig. Cranial Prosthesis can only be custom made or custom fitted and made with only Raw Human Hair.
Non-Surgical Hair replacement can also be called a Cranial Prosthetic. The only difference is the Non-Surgical Hair Replacement is hair that is semi permanently attached to the client's head to mimic natural hair.
Cranial prosthesis wigs are prosthetic hair solutions made for people suffering with hair loss due to medical conditions. Not only do they offer a natural looking appearance, but our cranial prosthetics are made with 100% raw human hair to ensure they look and feel as realistic as possible. Cranial prosthetics are prescribed from your doctor when medically diagnosed hair loss is prevalent. Our professionally trained hair prosthesis specialist Jessica Lamkpin, will guide you through The Evolve Effect's hair solution experience.
Types of Non-Surgical Hair Replacement
-Hair Piece (half wig/toupee/topper)
-A Combination of one of the above w/ traditional hair extensions
-All types can be installed for temporary or semi-permanent wear.
Contact the benefits department for your health insurance and ask:
-Does your policy cover a cranial prosthesis?
-If it does, what type of prosthesis is covered (I.e. human hair wigs, synthetic wigs, etc.)
-How much of the cost do they cover?
-What specific terminology for a wig should the prescription contain?
-Is there required documentation they need to submit your claim? What is it?
Note: When reviewing your insurance policy and you don’t see cranial prosthesis listed, it doesn’t necessarily mean you don’t have coverage. We strongly recommend that you call your health insurance company and get pre-authorization.
- Get a prescription for a “cranial prosthesis” from your doctor. Make sure that’s the correct terminology required by your health insurance provider. Also, include procedure code A9282. It’s important that the prescription does not say “wig” Because a wig is considered a fashion item, it is not medically necessary. The procedure code/number on your cranial prosthesis prescription is used to submit your insurance claim.
- Add a personal touch. By having your doctor write a letter, you become more human, and not just a claimant. In the letter, your doctor can explain hair loss and its devastating effects on a recipient. Also, he/she can state that your prosthesis is not for cosmetic reasons, but for your emotional well-being.
- Make sure you keep copies of all your invoices and documentation from your doctor for tax exemption purposes. Don’t forget to consult with your tax advisor regarding tax deductible items and medical bills.
- If you are going to pay out-of-pocket or upfront initially, place your order online at www.TheEvolveEffect.com or contact us at (909)-390-2466
- After placing your order with TheEvolveeffect.com, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number. Let us know that you need a copy of your invoice for your cranial prosthesis prescription.
- We will provide you with your invoice containing a notation that states Cranial Prosthesis and our tax ID number.
- Send all documentation to your health insurance provider. This is includes your doctor’s prescription, completed insurance claim form, invoice from theevolveeffect.com, and any other necessary forms.

Alopecia areata is a common autoimmune disorder that often results in unpredictable hair loss It affects roughly 6.8 million people in the United States and 147 million people worldwide. In most cases, hair falls out in small patches around the size of a quarter. There may be only a few patches, but alopecia areata can affect wider areas of the scalp.
If there is a complete loss of hair on the scalp, doctors diagnose alopecia totalis. If there is hair loss throughout the entire body, the condition is called alopecia universalis.
Alopecia can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, or race, though most cases develop before the age of 30. Hair loss can appear in many different ways, depending on what's causing it. It can come on suddenly or gradually and affect just your scalp or your whole body.
Signs and symptoms of hair loss may include:
Gradual thinning on top of head. This is the most common type of hair loss, affecting people as they age. In men, hair often begins to recede at the hairline on the forehead. Women typically have a broadening of the part in their hair. An increasingly common hair loss pattern in older women is a receding hairline (frontal fibrosing alopecia).
Circular or patchy bald spots. Some people lose hair in circular or patchy bald spots on the scalp, beard or eyebrows. Your skin may become itchy or painful before the hair falls out.
Sudden loosening of hair. A physical or emotional shock can cause hair to loosen. Handfuls of hair may come out when combing or washing your hair or even after gentle tugging. This type of hair loss usually causes overall hair thinning but is temporary.
Full-body hair loss. Some conditions and medical treatments, such as chemotherapy for cancer, can result in the loss of hair all over your body. The hair usually grows back.
Patches of scaling that spread over the scalp. This is a sign of ringworm. It may be accompanied by broken hair, redness, swelling and, at times, oozing. See your doctor if you are distressed by persistent hair loss in you or your child and want to pursue treatment. For women who are experiencing a receding hairline (frontal fibrosing alopecia), talk with your doctor about early treatment to avoid significant permanent baldness.
Cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy, can cause hair loss. This type of hair loss is usually temporary, and the hair will typically grow back after treatment is finished. However, some people may experience permanent hair loss as a result of cancer treatment.
Chemotherapy and radiation cause hair loss because they're designed to target rapidly growing cancer cells. However, they also impact other rapidly growing cells throughout the body, including normal cells that grow new hair of all types, from the hair on your head to armpit, body and pubic hair.
Although there are no treatments that have been proven to prevent hair loss during cancer treatment, getting a cranial prostheis can help one regain self conidence while pushing through their hair loss and cancer journey.
Trichotillomania, also known as trich, is when someone cannot resist the urge to pull out their hair. They may pull out the hair on their head or in other places, such as their eyebrows or eyelashes. Trich is more common in teenagers and young adults. People with trich feel an intense urge to pull their hair out and they experience growing tension until they do. After pulling their hair out, they feel a sense of relief.
A person may sometimes pull their hair out in response to a stressful situation, or it may be done without really thinking about it.
Most people with trich pull out hair from their scalp, but some pull out hair from other areas, such as their:
-beard or moustache
-Bald patches on the head may have an unusual shape and affect 1 side of the head more than the other.
Trich may cause feelings of shame and low self-esteem. Those affected may try to keep their condition to themselves. It's not entirely clear what causes trich. It could be: your way of dealing with stress or anxiety a chemical imbalance in the brain, similar to obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), changes in hormone levels during puberty
For some people, hair pulling can be a type of addiction. The more they pull their hair out, the more they want to keep doing it. The good news is most major helth plans cover Trich! Trich and be covered with a custom made unit!
