The Best Hair Restoration Treatments in Tenafly, NJ
Everyone experiences hair loss differently and at different rates. In some circumstances, a prescription medication to slow hair loss may be the best option, while others might look for a more permanent solution through transplantation surgery. No matter what your desired results are, we can help you achieve them.
Medications That Promote Natural Hair Growth
Two kinds of medications are often prescribed to slow the effects of male pattern baldness.
Minoxidil, or Rogaine, is often prescribed as a topical ointment or tablet that encourages hair growth by widening the blood vessels in your scalp. Finasteride, also known as Propecia or Proscar, works by preventing testosterone from turning into dihydrotestosterone, which is the main cause of male pattern baldness.
Stopping either of these medications can cause hair loss to return, so it is important to stay consistent in order to maintain their results.
Hair Transplant Surgeries
If you are looking for a more permanent solution to your hair loss without the need for medication, we perform hair transplant surgeries in Tenafly, NJ. We will help you identify the best procedure for you based on the extent of your hair loss, your health history, and your desired results.
Follicular Unit Transplantation: FUT Hair Transplantation
During follicular unit transplantation (FUT), a strip of healthy hair follicles is removed from a donor area on the back of your head. Your hair transplant surgeon will divide this strip into individual grafts and transplant them back into balding areas to promote healthy growth. This procedure typically takes between 4 and 8 hours and is commonly referred to as “hair plugs”.
Follicular Unit Extraction: FUE Hair Transplant Surgery
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) takes longer than FUT, but often generates more natural-looking results and less scarring. Instead of harvesting an entire strip of hair for grafting, an FUE procedure extracts individual hair follicles and transplants them into desired areas. This is the most popular hair transplant method.

Hair Restoration Procedures
Some people may have a fear of surgery or worry about long recovery times due to a health condition like diabetes. Luckily, we offer alternative hair restoration procedures to help you reach your natural hair growth goals with no surgery required.
Platelet-Rich Plasma: PRP Therapy
During PRP Therapy, your blood is drawn and processed to extract platelets from it. They are then injected into your scalp either on their own to encourage new hair growth, or in addition to another procedure to promote healing and shorten the recovery process.
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a hair restoration procedure that’s similar to getting a tattoo. Using a microneedling tool, pigment is injected into the scalp to create the appearance of a full head of hair. This is often recommended for men who prefer to wear their hair short, or for those looking to create a fuller-looking hairline.
PDO Threads are small sutures that oxygenate the scalp to promote hair growth. They are typically used in addition to a hair transplant and can promote blood flow, increase collagen production, and stimulate your body’s platelet response to encourage growth.
Stem Cell Grafting
Many people choose stem cell grafting to repair their damaged hair follicles and promote new growth. During this procedure, stem cells are extracted from the scalp and injected into areas with damaged or weak hair follicles to heal them and stimulate new growth.
