What are the Main Causes of Hair Loss?
There are a few factors that lead to balding and thinning hair, with the most common being male-pattern baldness. However, thyroid disease and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) can contribute to hair loss in women.
The following symptoms may also contribute to hair loss:
- Telogen effluvium (TE)
- Traction alopecia
- Lichen planus
- Lichen planopilaris
- Alopecia areata
- Alopecia totalis
- Auto-immune conditions

Hair Transplant Surgery and Procedures in Demarest
The Hair Transplant Center offers several options in Demarest, NJ, for growing and restoring your hair.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
During a follicular unit transplant (FUT), a strip of hair from the back of the head is removed, and our surgeon dissects that strip into individual grafts before transplanting your real hair follicles into balding or thinning spots. FUT procedures usually take four to eight hours depending on the severity of your hair loss, and you are given localized anesthesia for the procedure.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
Instead of taking a full strip of hair, follicular unit extraction (FUE) uses microscopic incisions to move individual hair follicles from your scalp onto areas where you are experiencing loss, giving you the most natural results. Local anesthesia is used during follicular unit extraction to ensure a painless procedure and a quick recovery.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)
PRP therapy takes platelet-rich plasma from your blood and injects it into your scalp using a microneedling tool. This process stimulates new hair growth for thick hair that won’t shed.
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) allows a skilled hair restoration professional to place pigment underneath your scalp using a microneedling machine, similar to getting a tattoo. This minimally invasive procedure only takes between 20 minutes and 1 hour and leaves you feeling confident with the appearance of a full head of hair.
Facial Hair Transplants
Is your facial hair not growing as thick as you’d like, or is it patchy in some areas? We offer facial hair transplants to clients in Demarest to address hair loss in eyebrows, mustaches, beards, and goatees.
When combined with hair transplantation, PDO threads help regenerate collagen and produce hyaluronic acid and elastin, resulting in new hair growth for over six months. Slow-dissolving polydioxanone sutures are used to improve blood flow and oxygenation to the scalp.
Stem Cell Grafting
Stem cell grafting harvests tissue from a hair site at the back of your head to extract adult stem cells through what’s known as Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF). These harvested stem cells are then injected into your scalp to repair weak and unhealthy hair follicles.
Female Hair Restoration
We can also help women experiencing hair loss due to stress, thyroid disease, PCOS, or other issues. Dr. Golio, Demarest’s leading hair transplant surgeon, proudly performs female hair restoration. We’ll help you find the right hair loss treatment to help you feel like yourself again.
