Hair loss can be a concerning and distressing experience, affecting both men and women of all ages. Finding the right treatment options can be overwhelming. At New York Dermatology Group, our team of board-certified dermatologists provide comprehensive information about the causes of hair loss and create a personalized treatment plan to address your concerns.
Androgenetic Alopecia (Male and Female Pattern Baldness): The most common cause of hair loss is androgenetic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness or female pattern hair loss. It is a hereditary condition where hair follicles become sensitive to androgen hormones, leading to miniaturization of the hair and eventually hair loss. In men, it often results in a receding hairline and balding on the crown, while women typically experience thinning of the hair on the top of the scalp.
Telogen Effluvium: Telogen effluvium is a temporary hair loss condition characterized by an increased shedding of hair. It can be triggered by significant physical or emotional stress, hormonal changes, major surgeries, nutritional deficiencies, or certain medications. Hair follicles enter the resting phase (telogen) prematurely, leading to excessive hair shedding.
Alopecia Areata: Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition in which the immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles, causing hair loss in patches on the scalp or other areas of the body. In some cases, it can progress to alopecia totalis (complete scalp hair loss) or alopecia universalis (loss of all body hair).
Hormonal Imbalances: Hormonal imbalances, such as those occurring during pregnancy, menopause, or conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), can contribute to hair loss. Hormonal changes can disrupt the natural hair growth cycle, leading to excessive shedding.
Medical Conditions and Treatments: Certain medical conditions like thyroid disorders, scalp infections, and autoimmune diseases can cause hair loss. Additionally, treatments like chemotherapy and radiation can lead to temporary hair loss.
Poor Nutrition and Diet: Inadequate intake of essential nutrients, such as iron, biotin, zinc, and vitamins, can affect hair health and contribute to hair loss.
Hairstyles and Hair Care Practices: Tight hairstyles, excessive heat styling, and the use of harsh hair care products can damage the hair shaft and contribute to hair breakage and loss.
• Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy: PRP is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment that utilizes your body’s own growth factors to stimulate hair growth. We draw a small amount of your blood, process it to isolate the platelet-rich plasma, and then inject it into the targeted areas of your scalp. PRP encourages hair follicles to enter the growth phase, leading to thicker, fuller hair.
• Microneedling for Hair Restoration: Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that creates tiny microchannels in the scalp to stimulate collagen production and improve blood circulation. When combined with PRP or other hair growth serums, microneedling can enhance the absorption of beneficial nutrients and promote hair regrowth.
• Nutrafol Supplements: Nutrafol is a scientifically advanced hair supplement that nourishes hair follicles from within. Its natural ingredients, including biotin, saw palmetto, marine collagen, and more, address the root causes of hair thinning and support healthy hair growth. Our specialists will recommend personalized supplement regimens tailored to your unique needs.
