Conditions: Hair Loss

What causes hair loss?

Hair Loss Treatment

Hair loss can affect both men and women and may result from a variety of conditions such as thyroid disease, anemia, protein deficiency, or low vitamin levels. Chemotherapy, a well-known treatment for cancer, can cause severe hair loss. Alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease, causes hair loss in distinctive patches due to the destruction of hair follicles in localized areas of skin.

What solutions does DAS offer for hair loss?

Dermatology Associates of Seattle offers a wide variety of treatments for hair loss. Depending on the cause of your symptoms, we may recommend medication, therapeutic procedures, topical applications, or a combination of the three. Our most common cosmetic hair loss treatment, PRP (or Platelet Rich Plasma), works by utilizing your blood, naturally full of proteins and growth factors, to boost hair growth in thinning areas. Our board-certified dermatologists can complete this non-invasive procedure in the office. The best way to determine the cause of your hair loss, and the most effective treatment, is to schedule an appointment today.

How effective are the treatments?

Each patient and each case are unique. Many patients see favorable results after completing several treatments. It is imperative that you get a complete and accurate diagnosis to receive the most effective treatment for your condition - this will lead to the most favorable results.

What are the side effects of treatment?

Side effects of PRP are mild and may include nausea, dizziness, and fainting. For all other treatments, side effects may vary depending on the type and strength of the medication.
