The most common cause of hair loss is a medical condition called hereditary hair loss. About 80 million men and women in the United States have this type of hair loss. Other names for this type of hair loss are:

  • Male-pattern baldness.
  • Female-pattern baldness.
  • Androgenetic alopecia.

Luckily, most causes of hair loss can be stopped or treated.

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. We offer various non-surgical treatments and can recommend superior transplant surgeons if you choose to explore that option.
