What is alopecia?
Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss. There are many different types of alopecia, each with a unique underlying cause. Only board-certified dermatology providers can diagnose the exact cause of your alopecia. At the Golla Center, our expert providers will take a thorough history of your hair loss and perform a physical examination to determine the exact cause of your hair loss. This expertise is what sets the Golla Center apart from other hair restoration clinics.
There are three types of alopecia and they are Androgenetic alopecia, Telogen Effluvium, Alopecia Areata.
Telogen Effluvium may be caused by a number of things.
It can be caused by childbirth, low thyroid, low iron storage, severe stress, and occasionally by certain drugs. Typically this type starts suddenly and the loss is all over, with increased shedding of hairs from the root. Once diagnosed, supportive treatment such as Nutrafol and PRP can provide resolution to the hair loss. In the case of low thyroid or low iron, replacement to normal levels is necessary to restore hair growth. Our board-certified dermatology providers can order and interpret the necessary labs to determine if you have a nutrient or hormonal deficiency.
