Alopecia, or hair loss, can impact men and women of any age. Thinning hair can affect your appearance and self-confidence, but there are treatment options to help combat alopecia. If you have noticed a receding hair line or thinning hair, contact our team of board-certified dermatologists at Greenbrae Dermatology.
Alopecia encompasses various types of hair loss, including male or female pattern baldness and alopecia areata. Hereditary or genetic factors can cause hair loss, as can stress, health, aging, hormonal imbalance and other contributing issues. Determining the type of alopecia is the first step in determining the best treatment plan. There have been incredible advancements in hair loss treatments in the last decade, helping those with thinning hair regrow and thicken or improve receding hair.

Restoring thicker, healthier hair
If you have thinning/receding hair or are experiencing bald patches, there are various treatment options available. Skin and hair follicle health are important for all types of alopecia. Our board certified dermatologists are experts in all things skin, including scalp health and hair growth. Hair loss treatment can include skin or scalp treatments, nutritional supplements, injections and other types of therapies. Many types of hair loss are caused by an immune reaction or hormonal issue, and suppressing the response can help encourage normal hair growth.
