What is hair loss?

Hair loss is the gradual or abrupt thinning of your hair, causing bald spots or reduced hair thickness. Hair loss may be temporary, but when untreated, it could be permanent. It may result from aging, hormone changes, or other factors. The Integrated Dermatology of NJ team helps determine the root cause of hair loss and provides treatments that restore hair growth.

What can cause hair loss?

Hair loss may develop because of:

  • Medical conditions
  • Aging
  • Cancer treatments
  • Genetics
  • Hormonal changes
  • Malnutrition
  • Rapid weight loss
  • Harsh hair care products or practices
  • Stress
  • Ringworm
  • Thyroid conditions
  • Diabetes 
  • Lupus
  • Menopause 
  • Medications
  • Supplements

Hair loss can affect anyone, but it’s more common among men than women.

What are the symptoms of hair loss?

Hair loss might appear as:

  • Gradual thinning
  • Sudden hair loss
  • Patchy or circular bald spots
  • Scaly patches over your scalp
  • Broken hair

It can affect your whole body or just your scalp and become emotionally draining when not addressed. See the Integrated Dermatology of NJ team at the first sign of hair loss to treat it and prevent future thinning.

How is hair loss diagnosed?

The Integrated Dermatology of NJ team diagnoses hair loss and its root cause after discussing your medical history, completing an exam, and reviewing your symptoms, lifestyle, and medications. You might undergo blood testing, hair pull tests, scalp biopsies, or light microscopy to uncover possible underlying concerns. 

How is hair loss treated?

Treating hair loss at Integrated Dermatology of NJ depends on the severity of the hair loss you have and what’s causing it. Your personalized treatment plan may include:

  • Dietary supplements
  • Hormone therapy
  • Oral medications 
  • Topical medications
  • Microneedling 
  • Laser therapy 
  • LED light therapy 
  • Lifestyle changes

You might be a candidate for more than one type of hair restoration solution. It’s important to eat nutritious foods, minimize stress, get plenty of sleep, exercise regularly, and avoid smoking. Avoid harsh hair care products, don’t pull your hair into tight ponytails or braids, and avoid brushing your hair vigorously.
