Alopecia treatments for men and women with hair thinning and loss
As people age, both men and women may experience hair thinning and loss over time. However, hair loss, medically referred to as alopecia, is a condition that does not have to be permanent! Luckily, the Current Dermatology and Cosmetic Center team in Annapolis, Maryland, can assist! Our board-certified dermatologists are hair loss experts who can discuss with patients the benefits of hair loss treatment to restore fuller, thicker hair.
What is alopecia, and what causes it?
Alopecia as a medical condition refers to either thinning of the hair or loss of the hair from the scalp. There are multiple types of alopecia, with different causes, and proper diagnosis of the alopecia type is critical to effective treatment. This is why it is paramount that a board-certified dermatologist evaluate your hair loss to determine an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
What are the current treatments for alopecia?
Hair thinning and loss can be managed when patients work with a medical professional to get a proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan. Oftentimes, multiple treatment modalities are used in conjunction to optimize treatment outcomes. At Current Dermatology and Cosmetic Center, we are excited to offer the following services to alleviate hair thinning and loss:
- PRFM injections – can be used in the problematic areas of the scalp to address specific spots where thinning and loss have occurred by directly stimulating hair follicle growth.
- Medical prescription options – when appropriate, prescription strength creams and/or oral medications can be used to correct and reverse hair loss/thinning. There are multiple prescription options available and a consultation with one of our board-certified can help determine which is best for you and your hair loss type.
