Hair loss can be an emotionally difficult condition for both men and women. There are many causes of hair loss. Most commonly it can be genetic, age-related hair loss. Both men and women tend to lose hair thickness and amount of hair as they age. Inherited or “pattern baldness” affects many more men than women. By age 35, two-thirds of American men will have some degree of appreciable hair loss and by age 50 approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair.
Other causes of hair loss are stress, illness, trauma, medication-related, and autoimmune. Alopecia areata is a very common autoimmune disorder causing patches of hair loss and, fortunately, is treatable by the providers at Spectrum Dermatology.
With a correct diagnosis, many men and women with hair loss can be helped with the use of medicines. The providers at Spectrum Dermatology will examine your scalp, review your history, and pursue the appropriate workup to correctly diagnose the reason for your hair loss which may include topical medications such minoxidil, oral medications such as finasteride (Propecia), injections, topical steroids, and other medications. Because a correct diagnosis is critical to your hair loss treatment plan, we invite you to contact Spectrum Dermatology to schedule an appointment and learn more about options for your hair loss.
Nutrafol is a new approach to hair growth and available from Spectrum Dermatology. As a 100% drug-free alternative for stress and hormonally related hair loss and hair thinning, Nutrafol works by controlling inflammation, stimulating the hair growth cycle, and helping with proper nourishment that leads to hair growth.
The research behind the success of Nutrafol shows that inflammation, oxidative stress, and irregular signaling are the root cause of stress-related and hormonal hair loss. Triggers cause the release of free radicals and micro-inflammation which produces chemical molecules that alter the hair growth cycle forcing them to shed away. Nutrafol prevents this cycle by balancing essential hormones, repairing the follicles and reducing inflammation, improving circulation, and in turn allowing the hair to grow.
Nutrafol has highly concentrated, clinically-tested ingredients that strengthen and repair hair without prescriptions or medications. Ideal for both men and women, we invite you to learn more by calling Spectrum Dermatology today – (480) 948-8400.

Evaluation by a dermatologist may help to define the cause of the hair loss and to work with you to develop a treatment plan. Sometimes a small (and relatively painless) biopsy or laboratory evaluation may be necessary to understand the reason for hair loss. There are a variety of therapies available to patients at Spectrum Dermatology and ideal for patients who are not candidates for surgery – or those patients wanting a more aggressive nonsurgical approach to treatment. Contact our office today to learn if you’re a candidate – (480) 948-8400.
