Is your hair thinning? There could be several reasons, including medications, age, hormonal changes or androgenic alopecia. Millions of men and women experience hair loss severe enough that they seek permanent, surgical hair transplants in New Jersey. Determining whether this is the right approach to solve your problem means you’ll need to understand your hair thinning a little better.

New Jersey Hair Transplant Candidates

Most people lose between 100-200 hairs per day as part of the natural growth and shedding cycles. Average hairs grow at a rate of 6 inches per year, and roughly 80%-90% of the hairs on your head are in an active growth stage at a given time. This is known as the anagen stage. The next stage is called the catagen phase, and in this transitional period, hairs slow their growth and eventually stop. This period lasts roughly 10 days. In the telogen phase, hairs rest for about 3 months then the root end breaks free, and they fall out. This makes way for new hair to come in.

Factors Affecting Hair Growth

Hair cycles change over time, and many people produce fewer, thinner hairs with shorter growth cycles as they get older. You can lose a significant amount of hair before it becomes apparent to others that you’re thinning or balding. However, if you’re prone to genetic, androgenic alopecia, you can expect hair loss to follow a predictable pattern and progress noticeably over the years.

Other temporary causes of shedding like medications, nutritional deficiencies or traction alopecia should be addressed with your physician or New Jersey hair transplant specialist as restoration may not require surgery.

Good Candidates For The Surgery

If you’ve seen a noticeable recession in your frontal hairline, if your part appears wider, or you can see more of your scalp than you once did, then you may have progressive hair loss. Scheduling a consultation with an expert is the first, critical step. Through close examination of hair follicle distribution and individual hair shaft sizes, a specialist can determine whether you’re experiencing a temporary loss or a progressive, hereditary condition.

Those who qualify for a surgical procedure such as FUE will have sufficient donor hairs available. This means that even if you’re severely bald on top, you’ll need to have thick, full strands at the back and sides to extract enough viable grafts.

Your hair surgeon may recommend alternative treatments such as PRP for hair, laser light therapy or medication. For patients who do not qualify or are too young to consider the surgical approach, these alternatives are very effective to slow thinning and even to regain some natural hair density.

We welcome you to book your consultation at the Nova Medical Hair Transplant Clinic and learn about your options today. Whether an FUE hair transplant to restore growing hair follicles on your head or one of the many safe and effective alternatives to treat hair thinning, we can offer you the support and personalized options that regrow your hair and your confidence.
