When patients begin to notice the loss of hair, it can be a serious concern. Increasing hair on the hairbrush or in the shower drain may be an indication that there is a medical reason behind the excess shedding. Patients with excessive hair loss may find that it can be caused by a number of conditions, including male pattern baldness, hormonal abnormalities, medications, underlying illness, or even stress and pregnancy.
Determining the reason for the hair loss can help a dermatologist determine the best way to restore the hair, if possible. Certain topical products such as Rogaine can be applied to reduce the loss of hair caused by male or female pattern baldness, and oral medications can be used effectively in certain situations.
The team at the Center For Dermatology Cosmetic And Laser Surgery provides a number of options for treating hair loss, including hair transplantation. We understand that hair loss and thinning can have a negative effect on confidence and self-esteem which can adversely affect one’s personal and business life. By visiting a dermatologist for a solution, hair loss can often be reversed.
Patients visiting the dermatologist’s office for evaluation of hair loss should prepare themselves appropriately. The doctor may want to know about nutrition, exercise level, medical history, medications, and family medical history to help in determining the cause for the hair loss. Emotional stress can result in unwanted hair loss and may need to be addressed.
