Top Hair Loss Treatments –
While New Yorkers flock to Bergen County to see the Jets and Giants at the Meadowlands, there is also a migration in the other direction when it comes to finding the best hair loss treatments in the area. Nationally renowned dermatologist and hair loss expert Dr. Gary Goldenberg has many patients who travel from Bergen County to receive the latest and most effective hair loss treatments at his NYC office – because he offers a revolutionary combination of hair restoration treatments that are not available elsewhere.
In this article we discuss our Bergen County patients’ Top 2 preferred hair loss treatments: Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Injections.
Natural & Effective Hair Loss Treatments
If you are a woman or man suffering from the frustration or embarrassment of hair loss, you probably already know that “over the counter” hair regrowth products are often ineffective and come with a wide range of warnings and dangerous side effects. Rogaine (Minoxidil) can be beneficial for some people, but it does not work on all types or locations of hair loss. And, oral medications including Propecia, can have serious side effects, including loss of sex drive, erectile dysfunction, breast tenderness, and more.
But recent advancements in medical science now offer ways to regrow hair naturally – by stimulating the body to repair dead or damaged hair follicles – without harsh pharmaceuticals. Since the body’s own cellular restoration processes are used, these treatments have no adverse side effects, as well as no downtime afterwards.
#1. Top Bergen County Hair Loss Treatment: PRP
You’re probably already familiar with “PRP” – but you may know it by a different name. PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, which is extracted from the patients own blood and used to repair a wide variety of ailments. You may have heard of joint regeneration shots in sports medicine – which are a form of PRP therapy. Or, you have probably seen the famous “Vampire Facial” on social media, which celebrities swear by for facial rejuvenation. This is also a PRP Treatment! Now Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments are being applied to hair regrowth with great success.
During PRP Hair Loss Treatments a small amount (approximately 25 ccs) of the patient’s own blood is collected, and then the solid blood cells are separated out using a centrifuge. The remaining serum is the “Platelet Rich Plasma” which contains highly concentrated levels of the body’s cellular growth factors.
This concentrated plasma, extracted from the patient’s own blood, is then re-injected into the scalp to treat hair loss. The growth factors in the plasma stimulate the repair of the dead and dormant hair follicles, causing them to start producing hair shafts again – as well as making more hairs per follicle, and thicker hairs in each follicle.
#2. Top Bergen County Hair Loss Treatment: Stem Cells
Hair loss is typically the result of decreased blood supply to the hair follicles – medically called “ischemia” – in combination with inflammation that slows or stops the normal growth processes of the hair follicles. This can be caused by aging, heredity, illness, certain medications or even autoimmune diseases.
Stem Cells [“mesenchymal stem cells or “MSCs”], however, have the ability to grow into almost every type of cells in the body. And, mesenchymal stem cells – especially when taken from body fat – have very strong anti-inflammatory properties.
During stem cell hair loss treatment Dr. Goldenberg harvests stem cells from the patient’s own body fat, and then re-injects them into the scalp. The stem cells go to work re-growing blood vessels [a process called “angiogenesis”] and calming the inflammation.
As the blood supply is restored and the inflammation is put at bay, the hair follicles once again begin producing strong, healthy hair shafts.
Top Bergen County Hair Loss Treatments
Each individual man or woman’s type, cause, location and degree of hair loss is different. So PRP hair loss treatment will work better for some patients, while another hair restoration therapy may work better for others. Or a combination of both may be most effective!
But Bergen County residents flock to Dr. Goldenberg in NYC because he is one of only a few medical practices anywhere in New York, New Jersey or on the entire East Coast offering all three of these innovative and highly effective new hair loss treatments.
