By far the most common form of hair loss (alopecia) is determined by our genes and hormones: Also known as androgen-dependent, androgenic, or genetic hair loss. It is the largest single type of recognizable alopecia to affect both men and women. It is estimated that around 30% of Caucasian females are affected before menopause. Other commonly used names for genetic hair loss include common baldness, diffuse hair loss, male or female pattern baldness.
There are a variety of treatment options available for thinning hair depending upon the extent of hair loss and underlying cause. At Abrams Dermatology, we will review your medical history, examine your scalp, and help you to determine the treatment options that are most suitable for your needs and lifestyle.
