Which hair loss treatment is best for me?

Treating your hair loss depends on the underlying cause. Dr. Rishi Patel and Dr. Utpal Patel at Lotus Dermatology pinpoint the root cause of the hair loss and create an individualized treatment plan based on your hair loss evaluation.

Whether you’re growing or protecting your hair after chemotherapy, a Lupus diagnosis, or because of a receding hairline, the doctors at Lotus Dermatology have a treatment plan to treat the specific, underlying causes of your hair loss.

What can I do about hair loss and thinning on my own?

Dr. R. Patel and Dr. U. Patel stay up-to-date on newest hair loss and thinning treatments, so they can prescribe the most effective medications, when required. They also provide easy-to-follow instructions for at-home care, so you benefit from the best practices to alleviate your hair condition.

Your set of instructions is likely to include one or more of the following at-home measures:

  • Match your hair type to shampoos and conditioners
  • Comb hair with a specially designed comb
  • Limit heat exposure from blow dryers, curlers, etc.
  • Avoid hairstyles that tighten the hair
  • Don’t use certain types of hair dye
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure

What are common forms of hair loss and thinning treatment?

Seven out of ten men suffer from male pattern baldness. This common diagnosis is due to a combination of genetics and age.

In some cases, Dr. R. Patel and Dr. U. Patel recommends a hair transplant. This procedure involves the plugging of hair follicles from a more dense area into the balding sections of the scalp. The goal of a hair transplant is to improve your appearance and self-confidence, but the risks include infection and scarring.

FDA-approved prescriptions like Rogaine and Propecia may curb unnecessary hair loss as well. Don’t hesitate to click or call to book an appointment today. When it comes to male pattern baldness, the sooner you seek treatment, the better your results.
