Institute For Hair

A dermatologist not only works with the skin, but the hair and nails as well. Patients who are dealing with problems such as hair loss (alopecia) may want to speak with a board certified professional such as Dr. Cheryl Burgess of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery to discuss the reasons why the hair is thinning and what can be done to treat it.

There are many reasons why patients may be experiencing hair loss. There are several causes and the most common include androgenic alopecia (male or female pattern baldness), effluviums (lack of hormones for hair loss in active growth phase), and alopecia areata (an autoimmune disorder). Dr. Cheryl Burgess has the experience necessary to determine the cause of hair loss, find an effective treatment option, and discuss ways to maintain healthy hair afterwards.

There are several hair loss treatment options available at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, so it is essential that patients consult with Dr. Cheryl Burgess and undergo a thorough examination to determine the reasons for the thinning hair as soon as possible for early and effective intervention. She may suggest laser devices, prescription medications, nutritional supplements, or topical creams to help stimulate hair growth and counteract alopecia.

Patients in and around the areas of Washington, DC and Annapolis, MD are welcome to book a consultation visit and examination with our board certified dermatologist to determine the reason for hair loss and find effective, long-term treatment for reversing or slowing hair loss as necessary.
