Hair Growth

Hair Growth Treatment

As hair growth treatment has advanced in recent years, Associated Dermatologists has continued to explore these advancements and incorporate options into its practice.

Fortunately, hair regrowth is possible in many cases. Depending on the cause and pattern of hair loss, treatment may help stop or slow its progression and may help regrow hair. The earlier treatment is started, the better it works.

Causes of Hair Loss

What’s causing your hair loss can determine whether your hair:

  • Falls out gradually or abruptly
  • Thins
  • Can regrow on its own
  • Requires treatment to regrow
  • Needs immediate care to prevent permanent hair loss

There are many possible causes of hair loss, including the following:

  • Hereditary factors
  • Age
  • The existence of alopecia areata, a disease that develops when the body’s immune system attacks hair follicles, causing hair loss.
  • Cancer treatment
  • Childbirth, illness, or other stressors
  • Repetitive hair care, such as regularly coloring, perming, or relaxing your hair, which could damage your hair follicles over time.
  • Regularly styling your hair in a manner that pulls on your scalp, which can lead to permanent hair loss in certain areas.
  • A hormonal imbalance
  • Scalp infection
  • Use of certain medications that have a side effect of hair loss
  • Scalp psoriasis
  • Pulling your hair, such as in the case of a nervous habit
  • Scarring alopecia, a condition that develops when inflammation destroys hair follicles
  • Some sexually transmitted infections, such as syphilis
  • Thyroid disease
  • Frictional alopecia, where boots, socks, or tight clothing frequently rubs against skin
  • Not getting enough biotin, iron, protein, or zinc
  • Being exposed to certain toxic chemicals, such as arsenic and mercury
  • Taking too much Vitamin A or selenium

Make an appointment with one of our dermatologists to identify the cause of your hair loss and discuss hair growth treatment options.
