FUR Treatment – Frequently Asked Questions





WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE FUR TECHNIQUE AND OTHER AESTHETIC TREATMENTS LIKE TATTOOS OR PERMANENT MAKEUP?

Our procedure consists of implanting medical pigment into the skin, shallower than a tattoo but deeper than permanent makeup. We use our own pigments that are personalized according to the client’s hair color. Our needles are specially designed to reproduce the illusion of a natural hair follicle. A regular needle wouldn’t produce the desired result or look as natural as our treatment.

WILL PEOPLE NOTICE IT’S NOT MY REAL HAIR?

Unless you tell them, people won’t notice that it’s not your real hair. They’ll simply think that you’ve decided to shave your head because you like the look and it works with your lifestyle. It’ll be your secret for as long as you decide to keep it!

WHAT DOES THE PROCEDURE ENTAIL?

The FUR technique is a treatment performed in a clinical setting with medical-quality pigments. Each single-use needle has been specially designed to recreate the look of a natural hair follicle. The procedure, injection of pigments, needle depth, required training, and client follow-up are unique to Canada. The professionals at Clinique Mon Cheveu are specialists in hair replication who understand your needs.

HOW CAN I BE SURE I’LL LIKE MY NEW LOOK?

We are specialists in hair replication, so we’re completely aware that being bald for several years can lead to uncertainty. For this reason, a full “transformation” during your consultation will reassure you about the final result.

I HAVE VERY THIN HAIR. HOW CAN THE FUR TECHNIQUE HELP ME?

FUR will camouflage the contrast between your hair and scalp by creating the appearance of increased density, which will diminish the effects light and water have on your hair.

IS TREATMENT AFFORDABLE?

FUR treatments are affordable and accessible. Prices vary depending on the area that needs to be covered. FUR offers an undeniable advantage: it can be completed in sections, depending on priority. We will review your personalized plan and pricing during your consultation.

IS THE FUR TREATMENT PAINFUL?

Most clients say they don’t feel pain during treatment, just a slight tingling. Of course, reactions will vary from one person to another.

WHAT KINDS OF PIGMENTS DO YOU USE?

FUR uses organic, mineral-based medical pigments of the highest possible quality. Pigments are prepared and customized on the day of treatment.

IS TREATMENT COVERED BY INSURANCE?

In most cases, no. However, please feel free to contact your insurance, especially is your treatment is designed to conceal scars or old injuries.

DOES THE PROCESS REQUIRE MULTIPLE SESSIONS?

In general, treatments are finished in two sessions. It is sometimes necessary to add a third session in order to complete minor retouches.

HOW WILL FUR TRANSFORM MY LIFE?

The FUR technique will have a huge impact on your life. You will look younger and more dynamic, which will boost your self-esteem. You’ll no longer suffer from hair loss, on the contrary, you’ll have adopted a bold and seductive look. Your life could change profoundly in personal, emotional, and professional aspects. Numerous studies conducted on men suffering from male pattern baldness attest to these results.

I HAVE SCARS FROM A PREVIOUS HAIR TRANSPLANT. IS IT POSSIBLE TO COVER THEM? HOW WELL?

You can expect for your scars to be very well hidden; however every scar is different. It’s possible you’ll need to return for an additional session, free of charge, to make sure it is completely covered. In a physical and emotional sense, the ‘removal’ of a scar can be a great relief. For clients who choose to keep their hair short, the scar will be hidden underneath. Those who’d like to keep their hair longer will enjoy the effect of increased density.

DOES THE TREATMENT STIMULATE HAIR GROWTH?

There is no reason to believe that the treatment stimulates hair growth. However, certain clients have noticed some new growth. We believe this phenomena could be linked to the stimulation of the scalp during the FUR process. There’s another possibility as well: the illusion that thin hair now has a denser appearance.

IS THIS THE RIGHT HAIR LOSS TREATMENT FOR ME?

The best way to see if this treatment is right for you is to make an appointment for a consultation. Certain restrictions could keep you from being a candidate (such as skin infections, severe psoriasis or eczema, skin cancer, etc.). During your visit we’ll perform an evaluation to see if you’re approved to undergo the process.

DOES THIS PROCEDURE USE LICENSED EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS?

All of the materials and equipment used during FUR treatment are licensed. They respect the strictest standards, and are made from only organic and mineral ingredients. Clinique Mon Cheveu owns all necessary licenses and permits to ensure our clients receive the highest quality service possible.

DOES THE TREATMENT COME WITH A GUARANTEE?

Treatment is guaranteed for a year. During this period, we will be happy to offer any necessary retouches, free of charge. Clients should also follow certain recommendations to keep their new look looking great!

WHAT ARE THE PRELIMINARY STEPS FOR A FUR TREATMENT?

The only thing needed to plan your FUR treatment is a detailed, no-obligation consultation session. You will also have to fill out a medical questionnaire.

IS FINANCING POSSIBLE?

Yes. Clinique Mon Cheveu offers financing options. We also accept Interac debit cards as well as Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit cards.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO FOR THE FIRST 4 DAYS AFTER TREATMENT?
