Alopecia, the medical term for hair loss, or thinning of the hair can affect both men and women. The causes of Alopecia can be hormonal, genetic, and environmental. No matter the cause of your hair loss, Kalia's physicians can offer a variety of treatments to help you gain your confidence back.
Hair loss can be a difficult and embarrassing subject for women to address. Alopecia in women can occur due to environmental factors such as stress, hormonal factors such as weight gain, menopause, pregnancy, or genetic factors. Our board certified dermatologists have a variety of medical and cosmetic treatments to help you feel more confident about your hair.
While Androgenic Alopecia can affect both men and women, it is the most common type of hair loss in men. This genetic condition can start in men as early teenage years and early 20s, and continue to affect men well into late adulthood. This type of hair loss is characterized by the gradual loss of hair starting at the hairline and receding towards the crown. There are many treatments that can help to prevent the loss of hair, and even grow thicker, fuller hair.
After a comprehensive evaluation a Kalia physician will provide options for treatments that match your comfort level and help you see optimal results. There are many options to help with Alopecia such as topical and oral prescriptions, or minimally invasive treatments such as PRP (Platelet rich Plasma) injections.
PRP is an effective treatment for hair loss that uses your body’s own growth factors to stimulate the growth of your hair. One of our highly skilled RNs will draw a tube of your blood, just like your having a blood test. They will then spin your blood, separating the red blood cells from the white blood cells and platelets. The platelets are then drawn up, and injected into the areas of thinning or lost hair to help stimulate the hair follicle with our own platelets.
