Montclair, NJ residents in need of hair regrowth, turn to New Jersey Plastic Surgery®, serving patients from Bloomfield, Essex County, Morristown and the surrounding communities.
What is Hair Regrowth?
Hair regrowth occurs whenever new hair begins growing in an area of the scalp where balding or thinning had previously occurred. This can be accomplished through a variety of means, including:
The Best Candidates for Hair Regrowth
Hair regrowth is much easier to accomplish whenever there is only a moderate amount of hair loss. Many people tend to put off treatment until after a significant amount of balding has already occurred. Doing so increases the odds that you will require more invasive hair transplant procedures. Keep in mind that a side effect of some medications is hair loss. You may need to stop taking these medications if you are to achieve optimum results.
Planning Your Hair Regrowth Treatment
Each person will require a different treatment program based upon the type of hair loss he or she is experiencing and a number of other factors. During your consultation Dr. DiBernardo will assess the reason for your hair loss and will also discuss your lifestyle and treatment goals to come up with a program that best suits your needs. At that time, a timeline for treatment will also be developed.
Preparing for Your Hair Regrowth Treatment
Before beginning treatment, you may need to stop using certain medications, supplements or hair styling products. You may also need to alter your hairstyle in order to make it easier to avoid using heated styling appliances. Heated styling appliances can damage fragile new strands, thereby making the results of your treatment less noticeable.
The Hair Regrowth Procedure
Depending on the treatment you choose, you may need to make regular appointments in our office, wear the iGrow® helmet for a few minutes each day or take special supplements. Many of our patients require a combination of treatments to achieve their desired results. The good news is that they do not require anesthesia or downtime, so you are able to resume your normal activities in the interim.
How much Does Hair Regrowth Cost?
Hair regrowth treatments are highly customized for each individual, which is why it is not possible to provide you with a cost up front. During your consultation Dr. DiBernardo will assess the amount of hair loss you have and then tailor a program especially for you. At that time, he will be better able to provide you with an accurate cost. For your convenience, we accept cash, check, Visa®, Master®Card, American Express® and Discover®. Financing options are also available via CareCredit® and AlphaeonTM.
After Your Hair Regrowth Procedure
You will gradually begin to notice your hair growing thicker and fuller over the next several weeks. It may take several months before you see the full effects of your treatment. After that, maintenance treatments could be needed if you are to keep your results. Those who have experienced any type of hair loss are usually asked to avoid having chemical treatments performed or using harsh styling products that contain ammonia.
Everyone desires a full head of hair and the regrowth procedures we offer can help those with thinning hair enjoy just that. Residents of Bloomfield, Essex County, and Morristown should contact New Jersey Plastic Surgery® in Montclair, NJ to schedule a hair regrowth consultation.
