Hair loss is a common reason for a visit to the dermatology office. Losing hair is a normal part of our biology. It is absolutely normal to lose anywhere between 50-150 hairs every single day. However, if your hair is falling out in clumps, if you notice circular areas of hair thinning or you are simply concerned about your hair shedding – it is time to make an appointment with us.
Balding is typically related to androgenetic hair loss, characterized for men by thinning of the hair on top of the scalp or towards the forehead. For women it presents as widening of their central hair part or significant thinning on the top of the scalp. Hereditary factors play a large role in this condition. Thankfully, there are numerous treatment options – including oral pills, injections, and topical foams.
