When Fremont and Milpitas, CA patients notice their hair thinning, they are often concerned about overall hair loss. Sometimes, the reason for hair loss and thinning is a serious medical concern, which is why it is important to get a proper medical diagnosis and discuss treatment of the medical condition before addressing the hair loss itself. Treatments for hair thinning and loss vary, depending on the reason for the issue.
Reasons hair thinning and loss occur
When patients are noticing hair loss, they should seek medical attention to determine the cause of the issue. Hair loss can be attributed to:
Male pattern baldness
Hormonal changes and abnormalities
Determining the cause of hair loss requires an evaluation by a dedicated dermatologist such as Drs. Sunil Dhawan and Shurong Chang of the Center for Dermatology Cosmetic and Laser Surgery. We discuss with patients their overall health and family history to aid in this decision.
Patients who have been diagnosed with hair thinning and loss will then consider treatments. If the issue is caused by an underlying medical condition, this is often treated before focusing on the hair loss. Hair loss and thinning is often improved with dietary changes, reduced stress, hormonal balancing, topical creams, and even laser therapies to stimulate hair growth.
