Are you needing Hair Loss Treatments?
Hair loss can be caused by a number of different problems and will require evaluation from a trained dermatology professional to make an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. Most hair loss is due to androgenic (hormone) factors and is commonly referred to as male pattern baldness. Male pattern baldness can affect both males and females but is more common in males. Other types of hair loss can be due to a vitamin deficiency, medications, anemia, thyroid disease, low protein diet or chemotherapy.
Different Hair Loss Treatments
A condition called alopecia areata is a type of hair loss that occurs in children, men, and women of all ages. It begins with one or more bald patches on the scalp that seem to appear rapidly. Alopecia areata is an immune response and is normally very responsive to treatment. It is likely that hair will regrow over time with corticosteroid, minoxidil (Rogaine) or other treatment options.
Treatment options for other types of hair loss include correcting the underlying problem, minoxidil (Rogaine), finasteride (Propecia) and hair transplants. The dermatology professionals at Kentucky Dermatology can evaluate your hair loss condition and suggest treatment options.
