Hair Loss Treatment

Decades ago, hair loss was accepted as an inevitable part of life. In recent years, many advancements have been made that can lead to a more positive prognosis. A multitude of treatments can help decrease hair loss, replace hair, or stimulate hair regrowth.

When it comes to hair loss treatments, there are many products on the market, but not all of them are effective. If you are hoping to prevent hair loss or have hair replaced, it’s important to make an appointment to see one of our physicians. Our doctors can recommend and provide a variety of treatments, such as injections, topical products, and supplements.

Facts About Alopecia

While alopecia means “hair loss,” there are a number of categories of alopecia. Contrary to popular belief, alopecia is not caused by nerves or anxiety.

Androgenetic, or pattern, alopecia includes what are commonly referred to as “male-pattern” or “female-pattern” hair loss. Here, the hair follicles gradually become smaller and thinner in particular areas of the scalp.

Telogen Effluvium is a condition in which actively growing hair shifts into a resting phase. Patients may notice a greater number of hairs than normal falling out with minimal effort, though it is otherwise asymptomatic.

Alopecia Areata is an immune-mediated condition in which the immune system inappropriately attacks the hair follicles. Hair typically falls out in round patches on the scalp or elsewhere on the body, rather than gradually thinning over time. This is a treatable medical condition that can come on suddenly and just as suddenly stop, or it may recur for years.

Scarring alopecia include a number of inflammatory conditions which can produce permanent scarring of the hair follicles. Because of this, these conditions are not-reversible. Intervening at an early point with treatment is critical in preserving and preventing damage to the hair.
