What Causes Hair Loss?
It is estimated that everyone loses at least 50-100 hairs a day through the normal hair growth cycle, but in cases where hair is visibly balding and thinning, a hair loss condition may be present. At River Region Dermatology and Laser, Dr. Love, dermatologist specializes in hair loss, and our medical team specialize in the treatment of medical dermatological disorders of the hair, skin, and nails, including various forms of hair loss for men and women.
Although factors such as childbirth and stress can cause hair loss, the most common cause of premature balding and hair loss is a condition called hereditary hair loss, which affects up to 80 million men and women in the United States.
Hereditary hair loss also goes by other names, such as:
- Male pattern baldness
- Female pattern baldness
- Androgenic alopecia
How is Hair Loss Treated?
There are many over-the-counter options for treating hair loss, which promise fast results, but many of these remedies are not physician-approved and can be unpredictable. At River Region Dermatology and Laser, our hair loss treatments are tailored to the individual, addressing the underlying cause of your hair loss and stimulating inactive hair follicles for natural hair growth that is thicker, fuller, and blends perfectly into your existing hair. Dr. Love is a board-certified dermatologist who specializes in not only skin but also hair and nails, ensuring professional results that you can trust.
During your consultation with Dr. Love and our medical team, we will assess your individual condition and create a personalized treatment plan to give you the best, longest-lasting results. As treatments vary, we will let you know what your options are, what you can expect, and how you can add longevity to your new hair growth.
