I’m Embarrassed About My Thinning Hair

There’s no doubt about it, looking in the mirror and seeing less hair than you had before can feel jarring and unsettling. Hair loss affects men and women and experiencing it can reduce your confidence and lower your self-esteem.

If hair loss is getting you down, Joseph Fodero, MD, PA, at Florham Park, New Jersey’s Northeastern Plastic Surgery, offers you hair restoration treatment, an effective, quick procedure that stimulates your hair growth using several effective therapies. Find out more about how getting hair restoration can make feel you more confident.

Defining hair loss

Hair loss refers to any type of hair reduction you experience on your head or scalp. Your hair loss can vary from thinning hair to a receding hairline to going nearly or completely bald.

A high number of men and women experience some type of hair loss, especially after age 40. Some conditions or treatments, such as certain types of cancer treatment, cause hair loss, but most often hair loss is genetic.

The link between hair loss and confidence

You can learn to live with hair loss, but if hair loss has negatively impacted the way you feel about yourself, you’re in good company. A thick head of hair is often considered a sign of beauty in our culture, so losing hair can make you feel less confident in your appearance.

Research shows people do tend to view people with full heads of hair differently than those with hair loss. A recent study shows people tend to see men with more hair as being more attractive, younger, friendlier, and more successful than men with noticeable hair loss.

Even when your hair loss isn’t visible to other people, simply noticing less hair when you look in the mirror can make you feel older and less virile. For some people, hair loss can cause them to avoid social situations or be less outgoing than before, and hair restoration can be the solution to getting their previous lifestyle and confidence back.

The benefits of hair restoration

In the past, hair restoration treatments often didn’t work well or produced unnatural-looking results. Now, using regenerative medicine and other effective therapies, easy help is available that restores your hair thickness and hairline.

Instead of working toward accepting your hair loss, it’s now possible to opt to restore the full head of hair you had when you were younger. Dr. Fodero, an expert in treating hair loss, restores your natural head of hair without scarring, significant pain, or needing to wear a wig.

Getting your hair restoration treatment

Your regenerative medicine hair restoration treatment is personalized to most effectively enhance your hair regrowth. Dr. Fodero develops your treatment plan during your initial consultation.

Several of our hair restoration treatments use regenerative medicine to stimulate hair regrowth. Regenerative medicine uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or exosome cell injections in your scalp to stimulate the regrowth of new cells in your scalp, increase collagen production, and restore blood vessels when they’re damaged.

Dr. Fodero also offers cutting-edge light treatments, which use low-level light energy to stimulate natural hair production. Finally, he can prescribe ViviscalTM vitamins, shampoo, and conditioner — high-quality products that support hair growth and aid you in achieving a fuller, thicker head of hair.
