Why am I Losing my Hair?
There are a few reasons you may start to see your hair thinning or balding. The most common reason for hair loss in men is male pattern baldness. Thyroid disease or polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) are a few illnesses that can also contribute to hair loss for women.
You may also experience a loss of hair due to the following:
- Telogen effluvium (TE)
- Traction alopecia
- Lichen planus
- Lichen planopilaris
- Alopecia areata
- Alopecia totalis
- Auto-immune conditions
The Best Hair Restoration Treatments in Old Tappan, NJ

Medications That Encourage Natural Hair Growth

- Medication is either applied directly to the scalp or in tablet form with a prescription
- Hair loss can return if you stop using Minoxidil
- Most effective for those with mild to moderate hair loss
- Commonly prescribed as a pill to slow loss
- Hair loss can return if you stop using Finasteride

Hair Restoration Surgery
For more lasting results, we provide several hair growth and restoration options in Old Tappan, NJ.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
A follicular unit transplant (FUT) was formerly known as “hair plugs” or a “strip method”. In this type of hair transplant procedure, 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, and you remain under local anesthesia for the duration.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
A follicular unit extraction (FUE) uses microscopic incisions rather than taking a strip of your hair, and moves 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 with quick results and minimal downtime.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)
PRP therapy works by drawing the platelet-rich plasma from your blood and then injecting it into your scalp using a microneedling tool. This process stimulates new hair growth for thick hair, reduced shedding, and less visible patchiness.
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)
Similar to getting a tattoo or microblading procedure, scalp micropigmentation (SMP) allows a skilled hair restoration professional to implant pigment underneath your scalp using a microneedling machine. This minimally invasive hair restoration procedure only takes between 20 minutes and 1 hour and mimics the appearance of naturally grown hair.
Facial Hair Transplants
The Hair Transplant Center – New Jersey offers facial hair transplants to those in Old Tappan, NJ, to address hair loss in eyebrows, mustaches, beards, and goatees.
PDO threads use slow-dissolving polydioxanone sutures to improve blood flow and oxygenation of the scalp. When combined with hair transplant procedures, PDO threads can help with collagen regeneration and hyaluronic acid and elastin production which triggers the body’s natural platelet response, resulting in new hair growth for over six months.
Stem Cell Grafting
Stem cell grafting harvests tissue from a donor hair site at the back of your head to extract adult stem cells through what’s known as Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF). Stem cell grafting can be done with PDO Threads or hair transplants, and the harvested stem cells are injected into thinning or balding parts of your scalp to repair weak and unhealthy hair follicles.
Female Hair Restoration
Women experiencing hair loss don’t have to suffer in silence. Dr. Golio, Old Tappan’s premier hair transplant surgeon, proudly performs female hair restoration. We can help you understand your hair loss to determine the hair restoration procedure that’s right for you.
