Hair Loss Treatment
When it comes to hair loss treatment in Buffalo, NY no one offers more comprehensive care than Lisa S. Ball, NP at the Neiman Dermatology Building!
Hair loss can occur as a result of aging, heredity, medications, or an underlying medical condition, and can affect men and women of all ages. It may leave you with pattern baldness, patchy spots, or thinned hair. Most people are troubled by this change in their appearance and seek help for this condition.
While many people are forced to deal with hair loss and let the condition progress naturally, there are several treatments available to help promote hair growth and manage hair loss. The best treatment option for each patient depends on the cause, location, and extent of the hair loss. These options include topicals, supplements, medications, and hair transplantation. At Lisa S. Ball, NP, we offer a wide range of treatments for individuals dealing with hair loss.
Patients seeking effective treatment can schedule an appointment with one of our providers, who will evaluate their individual condition in order to determine the cause of hair loss. This appointment will also include a discussion of the patient’s goals for treatment. Our providers will develop a customized treatment plan for each patient that could possibly incorporate several different approaches to best achieve desired results.
Hair Loss Treatment For Men
Hair loss affects over 50 million American men, most of whom deal with low confidence and self-esteem. The reason behind a majority of men’s hair loss is attributed to male pattern baldness. This typically presents itself in the front and back of the scalp, progressing over time. Other reasons for men’s hair loss may include an underlying medical condition or a side effect of certain medications.
Some treatments for male pattern baldness include minoxidil and finasteride. Both of these, aim to stop or slow down hair loss in the targeted area(s) and possibly stimulate regrowth as well. These medications are approved by the FDA for the treatment of pattern baldness but come with their own set of benefits, side effects, and risks.
For advanced male pattern baldness, the most effective treatment option for some patients is hair transplantation. This is where areas of full, healthy hair are moved to the affected location in order to restore a fuller, thicker look. This procedure has been performed successfully at our office for many years with minimal downtime and natural-looking results. With their experience and skill in hair restoration, our staff will determine the most effective treatment option for each patient.
Hair Loss Treatment For Women
While hair loss is more commonly associated with men, many women deal with it as well. Women often feel self-conscious about their lost or thinning hair and explore options to address it. There are several options available that take into account the special needs and goals of women suffering from this condition. In order to determine the most effective approach for each patient, our providers perform a thorough medical history to determine whether or not hair loss is caused by any underlying conditions, heredity, or hormonal changes. Some cases of female hair loss can be caused by androgenic alopecia, also known as female pattern baldness. These women may experience thinning behind the hairline that progresses over time.
Hair restoration treatments for women include cosmetic, medical, or surgical approaches. Hair transplantation can also be an option for women, effectively restoring areas of lost or patchy hair.
