What is the Cause of Hair Loss?

While hair loss happens naturally every day, continued thinning, patchiness, or balding can result from several factors. Hair loss occurs most commonly due to male pattern baldness. However, thyroid disease or polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) can also contribute.

You may also experience hair loss due to:

  • Stress
  • Telogen effluvium (TE)
  • Traction alopecia
  • Lichen planus 
  • Lichen planopilaris
  • Dermatitis
  • Alopecia Areata
  • Alopecia totalis
  • Melanoma
  • Auto-immune conditions

What are the Best Hair Replacement Solutions for Hair Loss?

Medications to Treat Male Pattern Baldness 

At Hair Transplants New Jersey, we can discuss your needs through a comprehensive consultation and determine the best treatments for you. Depending on the severity of your hair loss, two medications are most often prescribed to treat male pattern baldness.

  • Finasteride (also known as Propecia or Proscar)
    • Most effective with mild to moderate hair loss
    • Commonly prescribed as a pill to slow loss 
    • Hair loss can return when you stop using Finasteride
  • Minoxidil (also known as Rogaine) 
    • Helps increase hair growth by expanding blood vessels in the scalp
    • Medication applied directly to the scalp (or in a tablet form with a prescription)
    • Hair loss can return when you stop using Minoxidil. 

Our hair restoration doctors also offer topical compounds, products, supplements, vitamins, laser caps, shampoos, and conditioners. We can also explore alternative procedures with you, such as exosomes, regenerative procedures, and stem cell hair restoration options. 

Hair Restoration and Hair Transplant Procedures

For long-lasting results, we provide several options for hair growth and hair restoration in the Ridgewood, NJ area. 

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

An FUT hair transplant, formerly known as “hair plugs” or a “strip procedure,” occurs when a strip of hair from the back of your head is removed. Our hair surgeon will dissect that strip into individual grafts before transplanting each one into balding or thinning areas. FUT procedures usually take four to eight hours, and you remain under local anesthesia for the duration. 

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

FUE differs from FUT in that instead of removing a strip of your scalp, our hair specialist removes individual follicles to transplant them into the areas where you’re experiencing loss. This outpatient procedure, also known as “hair implants,” has become popular as there’s less scarring and chance of mismatched hair patterns. 

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)

Similar to a tattoo or microblading, SMP requires a skilled hair replacement professional using a microneedling machine to implant pigment underneath your scalp. This pigment mimics the appearance of naturally grown hair and allows you to leave after just 20 minutes to an hour feeling confident with a full head of hair. 

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP works by injecting your platelets into your body using a microneedling tool. This process then stimulates growth so that you can have thicker hair. You may also experience reduced shedding and less visible patchiness. 

Facial Hair Transplants

Facial hair transplants are treatments that transplant healthy hair follicles to your face. This procedure can address hair loss in eyebrows, mustaches, beards, or goatees. 

Female Hair Restoration

You don’t have to suffer in silence. Dr. Golio proudly offers female hair restoration options to those in the Ridgewood, NJ area. Let us help you understand your hair loss and determine the best hair restoration treatment for you moving forward. 

PDO Threads

PDO Threads can be combined with a hair transplant and uses slowly dissolving polydioxanone sutures to improve blood flow and oxygenation of the scalp. PDO Threads also contribute to collagen regeneration, hyaluronic acid and elastin production, consistently triggering the body’s natural platelet response. This process results in potential hair growth for over six months. 

Stem Cell Grafting

Stem Cell Grafting can be done with PDO Threads or hair transplant and involves harvesting tissue from a donor site at the back of your head to extract adult stem cells through what’s called Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF). These stem cells are then injected into recipient sites where you’re experiencing thinning or balding to repair or reactivate unhealthy hair follicles.

How much is a hair transplant in NJ?

The cost of your hair transplant will depend on the type of procedure and your desired outcome. If you’re experiencing severe hair loss, you may need to transplant more follicles, which can impact your total hair transplant cost. Each graft can cost anywhere between $3 and $6, but the skill of the doctor or clinician performing the work is what counts. You don’t want the quality of your hair restoration to suffer because you went with the cheapest option. We offer some of the most affordable prices in Ridgewood, NJ without sacrificing the quality of our work. 

What is the best age to do a hair transplant?

People who are at least 25 years old are typically the best candidates for hair transplantation. For those ages 25-30, considering medications like Minoxidil or Finasteride is a good option to start. You’re typically done losing hair by age 30 and can then explore surgical options to get your desired results. As long as you are otherwise healthy, there’s no maximum age limit for hair transplants. 

Is a hair transplant procedure painful?

Because hair transplants for Ridgewood, NJ are performed with anesthesia, they are largely painless. You may experience some discomfort post-surgery if you’ve had a FUT around the area where the strip of hair was removed. 

How many years do hair transplants last?

Once you’ve had a hair transplant session, you should start to see consistent growth after about six months. Hair density manifests within a year. Your hair should continue to grow for the rest of your lifetime since the healthy hair follicles replaced your thinning or patchy areas. 

Can you wear a hat after a hair transplant?

We typically recommend that you wait at least ten days before wearing a hat so that you don’t compress, damage, or displace your new hair follicles.
