At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, we work closely with men and women in the DC area who are troubled with hair loss. Hair loss and thinning can occur for a variety of reasons. It may be due to conditions such as alopecia areata, effluvium or androgenetic alopecia. It may also be triggered by changing hormone levels, stress or trauma. Whatever the reason, getting a proper diagnosis from a dermatologist is the first step in finding effective solutions for improving hair growth.
Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist in the community who is ready and willing to assist patients in addressing their hair thinning and loss problems. After she is able to provide a thorough evaluation and diagnosis of the reason for the hair loss, she can provide solutions that work. Analyzing the issue is first because it allows her to determine the source of the problem. If the cause is hormones, hormone blocking therapy may be suggested. Some medications may cause hair loss and so the change in medication can help. However, some medications need to be taken and this issue cannot be avoided, therefore our team will help find a way to help counteract the problem with other hair growth solutions.
Hair loss treatment at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery is determined based on the cause of the problem and the best solution for patients. This may include prescription medications, supplements or topical creams that can stimulate hair growth. Procedures such as hair transplants may be considered, especially if the reason for hair loss is permanent.
