Patients in the Washington, DC and Annapolis, MD area who are faced with hair loss are often seeking a solution. Alopecia, hair loss, is a condition that can affect anyone. However, the reason for the hair loss may vary. Patients are encouraged to work with a board certified dermatologist such as Dr. Cheryl Burgess to find the source of the problem and determine the best possible solution.
Hair loss, also referred to alopecia in the medical community, occurs for a variety of reasons. It may be due to hormonal changes, an autoimmune disorder or even male (or female) pattern baldness. Dr. Cheryl Burgess starts with an examination to determine the source of the issue. Knowing the reason for hair loss will help in determining the best possible treatment to thicken the hair and reverse hair loss whenever possible. Other solutions may include treatment that slows hair loss.
After the initial assessment, patients work closely with their dermatologist to choose the best possible treatment option. Some patients may benefit from the use of topical medications, while others may need to consider systemic therapies. At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, we offer a wide range of solutions and determine which may be best for our patients and their specific needs and lifestyles.
