Alopecia in Women

Dr. Jamie Weisman of Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta GA

Hair loss is a distressing experience among people of all ages. While men are typically thought of as losing their hair as they age, hair loss can also occur in women. Alopecia is a hair loss condition that causes gradual thinning of the hair or complete baldness. For women, this can have a substantial impact on their quality of life because it is not typically common for women to experience significant hair loss. During this difficult condition, it is important for women to find successful treatment for hair loss. At Medical Dermatology Specialists, Dr. Jamie Weisman takes the time to treat all patients on an individualized basis to give an accurate diagnosis of the specific hair loss type.

It is important for an accurate diagnosis to be made so that personalized treatment can be given. There is no one size fits all approach to treatment at Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta because no two patients are alike. Every patient needs a customized treatment plan to stop or slow hair loss.

There are certain factors that contribute to alopecia in women. Genetics, changing hormones, and the aging process are the strongest contributors to female hair loss. While all women typically experience some hair loss at menopause and some after pregnancy, women who experience thinning and baldness from alopecia do so during any stage of life. Women who experience any type of unusual hair loss should bring it to the attention of a medical dermatologist as quickly as possible. In some instances, women who begin treatment for alopecia early can find a successful resolution to the condition.

At Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta, Dr. Weisman uses the most advanced and progressive treatments available to treat patients suffering from temporary or permanent hair loss. Dr. Jamie Weisman understands that all skin conditions are more than skin deep, and she is dedicated to finding the root cause of the condition for successful treatment.
