3 Great Hair Restoration Options
Losing your hair is never a welcome experience. Your once full head of hair is now more like a half head of hair. Not only are you aesthetically displeased, but you are also less confident than you once were.
Social anxiety, depression, embarrassment and other emotional issues may develop when you lose your hair. Thankfully, you can put an end to these negative feelings.
If you are searching for a hair loss cure in Bergen County, NJ, Dr. Jeffrey B. Wise and the Wise Institute for Hair Restoration can help you. You can expect minimal downtime, natural results, expertise only possible from a Double Board Certified doctor and treatment performed in our state-of-the-art Joint Commission Accredited facility.
We offer excellent hair restoration and hair loss prevention options.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Restoration
Follicular Unit Extraction starts when we remove hair follicles, one or two hairs at time, from a patient’s donor area. The donor area is normally from the back of the scalp where the hair follicles are resistant to balding*. The follicles are then transplanted to the area of the scalp where the hair is thinning or bald called the recipient site. The extraction process is performed by the NeoGraft machine at Dr. Wise’s discretion. FUE is minimally invasive and leaves no linear scarring. There is a faster recovery time with this safe and efficient process.
*If a patient does not have viable donor hair at the back of the scalp, Dr. Wise can perform the same FUE process using body hair from a man’s arms, legs, back, chest and other areas and utilize those follicles to substitute for the lack of donor hair on the head.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) Hair Restoration
When undergoing Follicular Unit Transplantation, Dr. Wise will take a strip of hair from the donor site, which is promptly sutured close with precision only possible with the expert skill of a facial plastic surgeon. The closure is meticulously performed to the extent that it is nearly invisible (an advantage of having a facial plastic surgeon perform the procedure rather than other kinds of doctors). Local anesthesia is used to make you comfortable through the procedure. Follicular units grow in groups of one, two and sometimes, three hairs, so we dissect the strip of hair follicles into microscopic pieces of one to two hair follicles. Dr. Wise prepares the recipient sites for placement of these hair groupings and the hairs are placed to mimic the natural growth of hair.
Following both FUE and FUT hair transplantation procedures, the Wise Institute offers four complimentary sessions of low-level light therapy to accelerate the healing process.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Loss Prevention
Dr. Wise recommends Platelet Rich Plasma therapy to aid in the recovery after a hair restoration procedure or serve as a separate preventative treatment. Used to reinvigorate growth, PRP is concentrated blood containing a higher level of platelets, which stimulates hair growth through many factors and cytokines. Our state-of-the-art facility is the only center in New Jersey to use the Magellan System, which allows us to create the purest and most effective PRP available. It’s important to note that not all PRP is created equally; this hospital grade device creates PRP that is 4-to-6 more times purer than an average PRP machine. Dr. Wise specializes in the micro needling technique to apply the PRP to his patient’s scalps which is clinically studied to be a more effective method of delivering PRP.
