An estimated 80 million men and women suffer from alopecia, commonly known as hair loss. Alopecia can create hair thinning or complete baldness. This skin condition can significantly impact your self-confidence about your appearance. Personalized alopecia treatment is available at Medical Dermatology Specialists in Lawrenceville for residents throughout Gwinnett County.

Causes of Hair Loss

The main common cause of hair loss is believed to be hereditary from hormones and lack of sufficient protein production. Other causes can include chronic illness, pregnancy, medications, infections and improper hair care. Individuals may lose hair all at once or in small patches. A Lawrenceville dermatologist in Gwinnett County can perform a skin biopsy to help determine the root cause of your hair loss.

Symptoms of Alopecia

Hair loss symptoms can vary among individuals depending on severity. Common symptoms of alopecia include patches of hair loss and random white hairs. Individuals may also experience white spots, thinning, splitting or bumps on fingernails and toenails. There are differences in how hair loss symptoms can appear in Lawrenceville men and women in Gwinnett County. Men may notice hair loss across the front and top of the head while women may develop thinning throughout the scalp without going bald.

Gwinnett County Alopecia Treatment Options

While there is no cure, there are several alopecia treatment options in Gwinnett County at Medical Dermatology Specialists in Lawrenceville. The most common form of treatment is corticosteroids delivered by injection, cream, ointment or lotion. Medications for hair growth, immune function and inflammation reduction can also be beneficial. Continued treatment over a period of a few months may be necessary to achieve optimal results. You can protect your skin against hair loss by using sunblock and wearing sunglasses and headwear when outdoors.

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.

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.
