Hair loss in Houston, TX, can be a distressing condition for both men and women. Though some hair loss each day is normal, especially with age, when it becomes excessive or if your hair begins to noticeably thin or fall out, you may require treatment. Dr. Simone Stalling and the entire staff at AVIVA Dermatology can assess your hair loss situation and recommend solutions.

Causes of Hair Loss

Many factors cause and result in hair loss for patients. For example, both women and men can suffer from “patterned baldness,” and genetics can strongly influence hair loss. Hormones also play a role in hair loss. Women may notice significant changes in their hair during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause due to hormone fluctuations. In addition, certain diet deficiencies can also cause hair loss. One of the most significant factors to impact hair loss in patients is stress. Stress plays a key role in our overall health. Excessive or prolonged physical or emotional stress can cause your hair to thin or fall out. This can create further stress for patients and can potentially cause long-term complications.

Treating Hair Loss

Understanding the cause of a patient’s hair loss is essential to treating it. As a board-certified dermatologist, Dr.Simone Stalling specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of hair loss. She will assess your individual health, genetics, and environmental factors that may be contributing to the condition. Here at AVIVA Dermatology, we offer the following treatments for hair loss:include:

  • Steroid injections
  • PRP injections
  • Microneedling with PRP
  • Prescription medication management

Learning to manage stress with relaxation behaviors and other strategies can help alleviate hair loss. Eating a healthy diet, avoiding harsh chemicals and hair products, and limiting over-styling hair techniques are also methods for overcoming environmental factors that result in hair loss. In more severe cases of hair loss, treatment may involve prescription medications or even surgical procedures such as hair transplants. Are you experiencing sudden or significant hair loss? It’s important to determine the reason for this change in your body and consider effective solutions and treatments to restore your hair. Your health and wellness are important, including the health of your hair and the way you feel about your appearance.
