Hair Loss

Hair loss occurs when the cycle of growth is disrupted. It can occur in both females and males and can also be a result of heredity. Regardless of the reason, hair loss and hair loss treatments are very common and our dermatologists at the Skin and Cancer Institute are well-equipped to help.

Primary Causes of Hair Loss

Hormonal Changes or imbalances, patchy hair loss, scalp infections, and skin disorders affecting scarred areas can all contribute to the hair loss of an individual.

Hair loss can be caused by drugs or prescription medications taken to treat other conditions unrelated to hair loss. Intake of too much vitamin A can also cause hair loss.

Secondary Causes of Hair Loss

Radiation therapy and other trigger events such as a sudden change to the body can cause hair loss to occur.

Available Treatments

Advanced FUE Hair Transplantation – This system restores hairlines with no surgery, no stitches, and no scarring. Unlike other transplant procedures that surgically remove a large portion of the scalp, Advanced FUE hair transplantation utilizes a gentle pneumatic extractor to delicately remove individual follicles from the donor area on the back of the head. The follicles are then implanted in areas of the scalp where balding occurs. The result is a discrete and natural hair transplant without the need for incisions of any kind.

PRP Hair Restoration – PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, refers to platelet counts in the clear liquid portion of blood that remains after red and white blood cells along with other cellular components are removed. During your PRP hair restoration procedure, we will collect a small amount of blood in a vial and place it in a centrifuge machine. This machine separates platelet-rich plasma from the rest of your blood cells. The platelet-rich plasma contains natural growth factors that will activate your hair follicles to begin regrowing full, thick hair when injected into your scalp.
