Hair Loss

Whether your hair loss is due to aging or a medical condition, it can take a toll on your self-imagine. Fortunately, some treatments can help with regrowth. At Palm Beach Dermatology Group, our highly credentialed doctors will conduct a physical exam and review your medical history to determine the most appropriate treatment method for you. Although each patient has different needs and circumstances, we typically prescribe oral medications, topical creams, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), laser or light therapy, or administer a hair transplant. Call our practice today to set up an appointment. We pride ourselves on respecting our patients’ time, so you won’t wait long to see the doctor and can be in and out of our office quickly.

We may determine that your hair loss will benefit from one or multiple of the following solutions:

  • Platelet-rich plasma therapy: After drawing your blood, our doctor will separate it from the plasma and re-inject it into your scalp to stimulate hair growth.
  • Oral/topical pharmaceuticals: There are a variety of oral and topical treatments available to treat your hair loss. Our doctor will determine if one is right for you.
  • Laser therapy: Using a low dose of laser treatment promotes circulation and hair growth in the scalp. This is a painless, quick, and non-invasive procedure that many patients prefer.
  • Low-level light therapy: The Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery found that low-level light therapy, a safe and non-invasive option, enhanced cell growth in male and female patients with alopecia.

Our doctors may prescribe oral medications or topical creams to supplement these options.

Conditions
Types of Hair Loss Conditions

 

We might need some information from you to determine the cause of your hair loss. Your doctor may:

  • Get an idea of your family history to determine whether your hair loss is genetic

 

 

  • Order blood tests to establish your hormonal levels, vitamin deficiencies, and thyroid function.
  • Take a biopsy of your scalp.
  • Examine your scalp and look for any signs of an infection.

 

 

The information we gather from this investigation should tell us if you’re suffering from any of these hair loss conditions:

  • Androgenic alopecia: Both sexes can experience this baldness. It’s often considered male pattern baldness in men and hair loss in women.
  • Alopecia areata: Men or women can experience hair loss on the head and body as an autoimmune response.
  • Anagen effluvium: This is when someone loses hair very quickly, typically due to chemotherapy.
  • Telogen effluvium: Here, a patient’s hair will quickly shed within a short time frame. It usually happens following a stressful event or a hormonal change.

When losing a significant amount of hair, apply sunscreen to the affected area or cover it. Otherwise, you may increase your risk of developing skin cancer.

What Causes Hair Loss?

According to Cleveland Clinic, most healthy people lose about 100 strands of hair daily, as it’s part of the hair growth cycle. However, when 100 or more strands fall out, and not as many grow back, you could be suffering from hair loss due to:

  • Hereditary hair loss.
  • Hormonal changes from pregnancy, childbirth, or menopause.
  • Medical care, like chemotherapy.

 

  • Stress.
  • Nutrient deficiencies.
  • Thyroid disease.
  • Hair treatments, like perms or bleach.
  • Damage to hair from tight ponytails or buns.
  • Fungal infections that occur on the scalp.

At Palm Beach Dermatology Group, we want to target the cause of your hair loss. This way, we can stop the problem in its tracks and work to encourage hair regrowth.

 

Medical Attention

Signs of Hair Loss and When to Get Medical Attention

Not everyone suffering hair loss experiences it the same way. It may manifest through:

  • A receding hairline, especially in men with male pattern baldness.
  • Hair thinning all over the head, especially in women with female pattern hair loss.
  • Loss of hair on the scalp.
  • Bald patches or patches of thinning hair on the scalp.

Remember that a hair loss condition isn’t limited to hair loss on the head. Patients can also lose patches of hair on the body, which may indicate an underlying health condition.

 

If you’re suddenly losing clumps or large amounts of hair, shedding excessively, or experiencing a burning or itchy sensation on your scalp, you may benefit from calling our practice.

Ways You Can
Prevent Hair
Loss on Your Own

Although we cannot prevent every type of hair loss, especially if you’re undergoing chemotherapy, there are some things you can do to help slow the process, such as:

  • Nutrient deficiencies.
  • Thyroid disease.
  • Hair treatments, like perms or bleach.
  • Damage to hair from tight ponytails or buns.
  • Fungal infections that occur on the scalp.

After we assess your condition, one of our doctors can suggest other home remedies to help you manage your hair loss.
