Hair loss and thinning are two concerns many patients have when they come to visit Dr. Cheryl Burgess at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. Patients in the areas of Washington, DC and Annapolis, MD who are interested in restoring hair may not require surgery. This is a common misconception that hair plugs are the only way to restore the hair’s thickness and volume after thinning or loss.
The first step in determining the best way to restore hair without surgery is by getting a proper diagnosis for the reason hair loss has begun. Some patients lose hair during pregnancy or times of stress, while others may have a medical reason behind their thinning. Through medical history and testing, our team of professionals can make a diagnosis and then speak to patients about treatment options.
Treatment for hair loss varies depending on the condition. Once a diagnosis has been made, Dr. Cheryl Burgess will discuss the most appropriate treatment for the best possible outcome. For some, special laser devices are used to stimulate hair follicle growth, while other patients may benefit from topical creams or oral medications. Hair restoration does not happen overnight. Speaking with a dermatologist who has experience in hair loss and hair restoration is the best way to make progress with the treatment of alopecia.
