Frequently Asked Questions

What causes hair loss?

One of the most common types of hair loss is androgenic alopecia. This type of hair loss most commonly comes with age simply because of your genetics. But you can also lose hair at any point in life due to:

  • Prescription medications
  • Nutritional deficiencies  
  • Fungal infections, such as ringworm
  • Autoimmune disease, including alopecia areata 
  • Hormonal changes, especially after a pregnancy or menopause
  • Abnormal hair growth cycle issues, such as telogen effluvium
  • Harsh or aggressive hair styling practices

Your dedicated dermatologist conducts thorough evaluations and screenings, which may include a scalp biopsy or blood test to get to the root of your hair loss.

When should I see a doctor for hair loss?

Any noticeable hair loss on your scalp or face warrants a consultation with our board-certified dermatologists. Signs to watch for include sudden loss, bald patches, clumps of hair falling out, or exceeding 100 hairs per day.

How is hair loss diagnosed?

Our dermatologists will determine the exact cause by performing a full scalp examination. Sometimes the evidence lies in your scalp. The dermatologist may remove a small piece of the scalp. This is called a scalp biopsy. A dermatologist can quickly and safely perform a scalp biopsy during an office visit. Sometimes, blood tests are necessary.

How is hair loss treated?

Not all hair loss is treated the same. Once the cause of your hair loss is determined, we will work with you to determine the best therapy for your type of hair loss. Treatments may include topical therapy, oral pills, vitamin supplements, injections, or any combination of treatments. In addition, hair transplantation is a great way to restore your hair to its more youthful state.

Is there an effective treatment for hair loss?

Yes! Whether your hair loss is moderate or severe, you have options at Elite Dermatology and Plastic Surgery. Some of the most common hair loss solutions include:

  • Clinical-grade vitamin supplements
  • Low-level red light phototherapy device
  • Changes in prescription medications
  • Oral, injectable, or topical medications to promote hair growth 

Elite Dermatology and Plastic Surgery offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. With this treatment, your doctor extracts the platelet-rich part of your plasma, which contains follicle-stimulating growth factors, and injects it into your scalp. This leads to increased hair thickness and density. 

Elite Dermatology and Plastic Surgery also offers hair transplantation. You can read more about our integrative approach to hair transplantation at elitehaircenters.com.

The unique dermatology and plastic surgery team at Elite Dermatology and Plastic Surgery offers comprehensive assessment and combined expertise to ensure you receive the most accurate diagnosis and most effective treatment plan for your type of hair loss. 

With the help of Elite Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, you can undergo integrative hair loss treatments and restore your fuller, thicker head of hair. Find out more by booking a consultation online or by phone with any office today. 

Individual results may vary.
