Wigs for Cancer in Miami & Fort Lauderdale
A Step Toward Healing: Look Like Yourself, Naturally
The way you feel can often begin with a single glance in the mirror.
A healthy attitude has a great impact on the healing process, especially during temporary medical hair loss.
Psychologists and scientific headliners admit that positive feelings play a vital role in the restoration of health. Hair loss due to medication can be easier to deal with when you are aware of what is available – and what is right for you.
With today’s technical advancements, wigs and hairpieces are far beyond what they used to be only a few years ago.
Elite Designer Wigs & Hair Extensions has 50 years of experience in the wig and hair industry, and we can help you by making this an easy and natural experience. Our wigs are designed to help you maintain a healthy attitude and positive self-image.
In cases of chemotherapy, hair loss often begins after the second and third treatment. Getting a head start before the hair loss (which allows us to see you in your natural color and hairstyle) isn't a necessity, but it can often help achieve the most comfortable and natural look for you.
Take the first step toward feeling and looking better. Visit or call us, and let us help you in maintaining a healthy attitude and positive self-image.
Common Questions With Temporary Hair Loss
Q. Will you be able to match my hair color?
A. Yes! You will be surprised by how many different colors and blends we have to choose from. This is all done in the comfort of a private setting with one of our licensed and professional staff members.
Q. Will you be able to find my hairstyle, and will it look natural?
A. Absolutely. In fact, we have so many styles to choose from that the only decision you’ll have to make is which ones you like the best. We’ll even customize the style for you.
Q. Is the maintenance difficult? Do I need to clean or curl my wig?
A. Our wigs are almost maintenance-free. If worn daily for 10 to 12 hours, it is recommended to hand-wash it every 14 days; however, use your discretion as to how often you feel you need to clean it. If styling products are used regularly, a build-up will happen and the wig may need to be washed more often. Once your wig is dry, no curling is necessary; with a quick and light brushing, you can return it to its natural style.

Will Insurance Cover Your Wig?
Most insurance companies do cover either partial or total cost of the wig. However, each insurance provider is different. By following these simple procedures, you should have no problem.
First, ask your physician for a prescription written as follows: “Cranial prosthesis due to effects of chemotherapy.”
Secondly, when purchasing your wig, we will make out your invoice stating, “Cranial prosthesis due to effects of chemotherapy.” When submitting your insurance claim, you will need to provide a copy of the doctor’s prescription and the invoice.
Some insurance providers do not consider a wig to be a medical treatment, and there are some who will turn the claim down, even when the prescription and invoice are provided at the same time. All medical clients receive a medical discount. Our wigs are specially designed for you, and we make them easy to afford.
