Hair Loss

If you are losing more and more hair on a daily basis, it’s time to consult with the experts at Advanced Dermatology of North Central Ohio. While alopecia may seem impossible to treat, our board-certified dermatologists are here to help you effectively regrow your hair or stop hair loss in its tracks through innovative alopecia treatment methods.

What is Alopecia?

More commonly known as hair loss, alopecia is a type of medical condition that results in complete or partial baldness. It may occur naturally or due to a certain disease or medications. Alopecia symptoms range from losing small, round patches of hair to the complete loss of hair on the entire body.

Alopecia is often most noticeable on the scalp, but it can happen anywhere on the body, including the eyebrows and eyelashes, though this is less common. The most common type of alopecia is male- and female-pattern baldness, or androgenetic alopecia. This generally shows up as a receding hairline or thinning of the hair.

Alopecia FAQs

Explore our FAQs section to learn more about alopecia and hair loss. Our board-certified providers cover common questions and concerns including what causes hair loss, the different types of alopecia, and how we treat hair loss at our state-of-the-art dermatology clinic in Mansfield, Ohio.  

The cause of alopecia, or hair loss, varies depending on the type an individual has. In most cases, hair loss is related to aging, genetics, and hormonal changes.

Hair loss can also be attributed to stress, trauma, autoimmune diseases, certain medications, excessive hair treatments, radiation therapy, and bacterial infections.

If you are experiencing hair loss and do not know what is causing it, we recommend you visit a board-certified dermatologist for a professional evaluation and diagnosis. Contact Advanced Dermatology of North Central Ohio for hair loss treatments in Mansfield.

While it is completely normal to experience some hair loss on a daily basis, such as seeing a few strands on your pillowcase or lining your hair brush, it becomes abnormal when you begin losing over 100 strands of hair per day, or around 700 per week.

Additionally, if you notice hair loss on other parts of the body, other than the scalp, something more serious is going on and it is best to consult with your doctor. 

Genetics play a significant role in how much hair loss you experience as you age. While hair loss due to hereditary factors cannot be reversed or regenerated, there are steps you can take to slow it down and improve your hair growth potential.

There are many different types of alopecia, the most common being male-pattern baldness, which affects around fifty percent of men by the time they reach age 50.

Also called androgenic or androgenetic alopecia, male-pattern baldness is generally thought to be hereditary and attributed to a hormonal imbalance, which has an effect on hair follicles. It most commonly shows up as a receding hairline and thinning hair.

Other types of alopecia include: 

  • Female-pattern baldness — Thinning all over the head. It is typically permanent.
  • Alopecia areata — Sudden loss of hair in one localized area. May be temporary or permanent.
  • Toxic alopecia — Temporary hair loss associated with illness, certain medications, or diseases.
  • Scarring or cicatricial alopecia — Scarring or skin trauma that prevents the hair from growing back.
  • Trichotillomania — Hair pulling that causes hair loss.

To determine which type of alopecia you have, it is best to consult with an experienced professional, such as the board-certified providers at Advanced Dermatology of North Central Ohio. 

This depends on the type of alopecia you have. For example, male-pattern baldness cannot be reversed, only slowed down. On the other hand, toxic alopecia is often temporary and the hair will grow back once the cause of the condition is addressed or removed (e.g. giving birth can result in hair loss but it generally grows back some time).

The best treatment for your alopecia depends on several different factors, such as the type you have, where your hair loss is, your overall health status, current medications, and more.

At Advanced Dermatology of North Central Ohio, we use the latest treatments to stop hair loss from advancing or improve hair growth. Your personalized hair loss treatment may include:

  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Topical medications
  • Oral medications
  • Immunotherapy
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
