The common wigs are also produced the so-called "standards" that can be adapted as a function of baldness to be covered, in contrast to trichological implants which are almost always produced "tailor-made", strictly respecting the dimensional parameters of baldness and enabling ' "integration "almost perfect during use.

A further difference consists in the possibility, in the case of tricologica prosthesis, to be cut and coiffed specifically to "merge" in a perfect way the existing hair, as well as to suit the desired aesthetic criteria; This is never possible for the wig that, on the contrary, presents already a hairstyle usually not editable.

Also in the wig, anchor systems are often very precarious (usually can be used elastic braid, paper clips, various types of hooks), while those of trichological implants are generally safer (including double-sided adhesives, resins or microdroplets, clips to anchor no adhesives products).

From a technical-structural view, the wigs are usually made up of textures in which are knotted hair; They are then finished with edges in silk, cotton or synthetic material.
The trichological implants generally include a diaphragm on which the hair is inserted; the prosthesis is then finished with suitable materials such as to allow the simple maintenance and long life.
