Hair Loss Services

Hair loss may be hereditary, or it may be a sign of an underlying medical condition, such as nutritional deficiencies, thyroid imbalances, infections of the scalp, or an autoimmune disease. Hair loss can affect people of any age.

Our dermatologists recognize that hair loss may affect how you feel about your appearance, and offer customized care and emotional support to help you feel like your best self.

Dermatologist Provides Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy to Patient

Among other treatments, we offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, a procedure used to stimulate hair follicles to promote regrowth.

We also diagnose and treat other hair disorders, such as excessive hair growth, also called hirsutism.

Hair Loss Services for Adults

For adults who are experiencing hair loss, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a procedure used to stimulate hair follicles to regrow hair. Growth factors from PRP are injected through the skin into the scalp, triggering and stimulating regrowth.

Other treatments for hair loss may include oral, topical, or injectable medications, depending on the precise diagnosis made by your hair loss dermatologist.

Diagnosing hair loss can be complex. Our specialists use advanced equipment to magnify the scalp on a screen for both you and your doctor to see. This allows your doctor to better provide a diagnosis and determine whether treatments are working. Other specialized equipment allows our doctors to establish your hair density and each hair’s width to determine whether the condition is improving. We are one of the very few centers in the United States with this advanced diagnostic equipment.

We strive to find the best treatments for hair loss through research and education. NYU Langone is a research site for clinical trials, allowing us to offer our patients access to emerging treatments that promote hair growth.

Hair Loss Services for Children

Hair loss in children is usually accompanied by an underlying medical condition. Our pediatric dermatologists and hair loss specialists are experts in identifying the causes of hair loss in children. They can often treat the underlying condition or refer you to other specialists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone for additional evaluation if needed.
