For many patients, hair thinning and loss is a concern. There are various reasons why hair loss may occur, including genetic predisposition and the natural process of aging. However, depending on the cause, some patients may be able to stop hair loss, or “alopecia,” with the help of a dermatologist. Dr. William Abramovits and his associates at the Dermatology Treatment and Research Center of Dallas, TX encourage patients to come into the office to find the cause and solution for hair thinning and loss.

Some of the more common reasons why alopecia occurs include: 

  • As a natural process of aging
  • Due to male or female patterned baldness
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Autoimmune disorders including thyroid disease and lupus
  • Changes in hormone levels, such as during pregnancy or menopause

What are the treatment options for alopecia? 

Men and women experiencing alopecia may want to put a stop to hair thinning and loss and restore their hair afterwards. To best determine the most effective treatment to put a stop to alopecia, patients will first need to undergo an evaluation with a medical professional. Dr. William Abramovits and his team will first determine the cause of the condition, and then make appropriate recommendations for treatment. There are many ways to address alopecia, and below are just a few of the more common methodologies for restoring and thickening the hair in a specific area of the body:
