Androgenetic alopecia is more commonly known as pattern baldness, and it is the leading cause of hair loss. For men, pattern baldness often begins as progressive thinning on the crown of the head and a receding hairline. Women usually experience thinning on the top of the scalp with no loss of hair on the frontal hairline. While the full extent of hair loss cannot be predicted, family history and your age are reliable indicators. If you suffer from alopecia and are wondering about your treatment options, we invite you to come see our dermatologist.
Our team offers several treatment options, and Dr. Michael J. Messina and his team are trained to determine the proper cause of hair loss and offer multiple options to treat and preserve hair. Depending on the extent of your hair loss and desired density, you may need to schedule multiple sessions of hair loss therapy. This, along with your candidacy and the details of your procedure, will be determined during your initial consultation. We invite you to contact Dermatology & Plastic Surgery Specialists at 760-773-6616 to learn more about alopecia in Palm Desert, California, and to schedule your appointment.
