tecnica fas

The perfect solution for non eligible hair transplant patients

The FAS technique or system (Follicular Alternative System) involves the fixing of a hair transplant system on the scalp. It differs from wigs and from more conventionnal hair prosthesis because it is tailored to the needs of the patient and made of real human hair. 

BHR Clinic Spain provides this new service for all patients suffering from alopecia who are not eligible or who do not wish to undergo a hair transplant. It is also perfect for alopecia patients who have been submited to chemotherapy or to radiotherapy treatments.

  1. Women with androgenetic alopecia who are not eligible for transplant and are wishing to get more natural looks and increased hair density levels.
  2. Men with severe alopecias who cannot cover enough scalp surface or get enough hair density.
  3. Chemotherapy patients or patients with post-radiotherapy alopecia wishing to preserve their natural looks without using non-aesthetic wigs.
  4. Patients with scalp pathologies, where hair transplant cannot be indicated. Some of these pathologies are : the Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia, the Lichen Planopilaris, the Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus, The Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia, among others.

Yes, as we already commented, the FAS Technique is different from any other hair systems on the market since it looks completely natural: patients can go to the swimming pool or to the beach, sleap with it on or go to the hairdresser, etc…and forget they have it on. They only need to take it off after 4 to 6 weeks before putting it back on. The whole process takes no longer than 30 minutes. Patients with remanent hair don’t even need to shave the area before they fix the system to their scalp.

No inconveniences. The system and fixing products to put it on and take it off have been tested dermatologically and comply with the quality standards in force.

No. The system really is made of human hair similar in shape and color to that of the patient. The system is not fixed to some kind of mesh like wigs are. It looks like a “second skin” because the base is made of polymer material that replicates perfectly the characteristics of a normal patient

Defining the FAS Technique?

The Fixed Follicular System is different from other anti-natural and uncomfortable wigs because :

  • It is made of real human hair: tailor made for every patient with real natural hair implanted on a biopolymer basis simulating quite perfectly the natural colour or every patient scalp.
  • Is is comfortable : the system is fixed directly onto the scalp of the patient which means the patient can carry on his/her normal daily activities. No need to take the system off to shower, sleep, do sporting activities or sea swim… The patient will only need to learn how to take it off and put it back on, to do so every 4 to 6 weeks.
