Hair Loss

Alopecia strikes as many as 80 million men and women just in the United States. This devastating condition leads to complete and total hair loss for many and life-altering hair loss or thinning for all. The treatment for alopecia requires advanced dermatology and commitment to the program.

What is Alopecia?

Hormonal, genetic or environmental components typically cause most hair loss. There are ten distinct types of alopecia, with two being the more commonly seen types. Androgenetic alopecia, a hereditary type of hair loss, is the most diagnosed form of alopecia. The second most common type, alopecia areata, is caused by the body’s immune system attacking the hair follicles. It leaves small patches of baldness over the body, primarily on the scalp.

The most extreme type of alopecia is alopecia universalis. With this type of alopecia, which develops later in life, all the hair on the body is lost, including eyebrows and lashes, hair on the arms, legs and the entire body. It is the most severe alopecia.

Can Alopecia be Treated?

A dermatologist can treat some forms of alopecia. Dr. Jamie Weisman, nationally recognized for alopecia treatment, uses the most advanced and progressive treatment available to treat her alopecia patients. You need a hair loss expert to treat alopecia, who will develop an exact diagnosis of the type you have and a personalized treatment program to slow or stop the hair loss.

Dr. Weisman takes the time to thoroughly listen to you and understand your condition and provide effective treatment, which can vary depending on the type of alopecia and other factors.

Can Anyone Develop Alopecia?

Yes, men and women can both develop some alopecia. It can be caused by a chromosomal factor, such as alopecia Universalis. Stress or trauma, hormone imbalances, chromosomal problems or the environment you are in can all cause alopecia. Some types of alopecia leave scarring, while other types do not.

Alopecia can strike at any time to men and women. However, some people respond better to various treatment options than others. That is why it is critical to see a doctor who is trained and experienced in hair loss, with alopecia as a focus. This detailed knowledge will help you achieve the best possible outcome for your alopecia.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
