Hair loss is often an unavoidable occurrence that can severely affect a person’s self-esteem and self-confidence. Many people around the United States experience hair loss every year and feel like they have few options. Sometimes, hair loss is a natural occurrence caused by genetics, but sometimes hair loss is due to a disease known as alopecia. A Dermatology Certified provider will be able to provide an accurate diagnosis and discuss your treatment options.
What is Alopecia?
Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that causes severe loss of hair. It’s a fairly common disease affecting around 6 million people in the United States. Alopecia can affect anyone, and it’s not specific to any gender, race, or age, but most people will start to see its affects by the age of 30. There are a few different types of alopecia, which can have different effects on the amount of hair loss and treatment options.

There are a variety of causes of hair loss. Some of them cause permanent hair loss while some cause only temporary hair loss. Some of the causes of hair loss include:
Alopecia areata is another type of hair loss that is caused by an autoimmune disorder.
Hair Loss Treatment Options
There is no cure for hair loss, but there are some promising treatment options. Hair loss treatment typically works best as a multifaceted approach at the early stages of hair loss or hair thinning. There are several treatment options that our certified dermatology providers can discuss and tailor to your specific needs. For alopecia areata, intralesional steroid injections and/or oral pill therapy can produce favorable results. Although you may see improvement with hair loss treatment, it’s difficult to fully reverse hair loss. It’s also difficult to produce results if baldness or significant hair loss has already occurred.
If you have an immediate concern, you want to find quality care as soon as possible. Our office takes walk-in appointments and will be happy to address your concerns and offer you immediate treatment suggestions and medical care.LEARN MORE
