Hair Loss Q & A

What causes hair loss?

Hair loss, also called alopecia, has a number of possible causes. Heredity, the most common cause of hair loss, can cause a receding hairline or all-over thinning. 

Non-scarring alopecia — hair loss without hair follicle scarring and destruction — is more common than scarring alopecia, which kills the hair follicles. Inflammatory skin diseases and disorders, including rare forms of acne, can cause scarring alopecia. 

Whether your hair loss happens because of heredity or an underlying condition, Ohio Dermatology Center offers innovative solutions to stop the progression, keep your hair healthy, and even reverse hair loss. 

When should I see a doctor about hair loss?

The earlier, the better is the rule when it comes to seeking diagnosis and treatment for hair loss. If you notice that your part seems wider, that your brush contains more hair than before, that your ponytail seems thinner, or any other possible signs of hair loss, don’t wait to get help. 

By diagnosing and treating hair loss in its early stages, you can effectively target the problem to reclaim more youthful and healthy hair follicles. 

How is hair loss treated?

Ohio Dermatology Center offers a few different treatments for hair loss.

PRP for hair loss

PRP is a treatment that uses your own blood platelets to help rejuvenate damaged or inactive hair follicles. The PRP infuses your hair follicles with concentrated healing substances that encourage a return to normal, healthy, and strong hair. 

Dr. Ravitskiy may administer PRP through a thin needle or as part of a microneedling procedure. A series of PRP treatments usually give you the best results. Over time, you’ll notice thicker, stronger hair with fewer bald areas.

VOTESSE™ vitamins

VOTESSE is a hair health system that boosts the results of in-office treatments like PRP. This physician-created system includes both topical foam and oral nutraceutical vitamins. With consistent use, the Votesse system can improve hair fullness, shine, and overall appearance. 

There are other hair loss treatments, including medications, that may help as well. Dr. Ravitskiy designs a hair restoration plan that’s customized for your personal needs so you can get the very best results possible. 

Hair loss can take a huge toll on your emotional and mental wellness, so it’s important to take steps to keep your hair now. Call Ohio Dermatology Center or use the online scheduling tool to arrange your consultation today.
