If you’re experiencing hair loss, you may feel a wide range of emotions, from embarrassment and self-consciousness to frustration at trying failed methods.

The good news is that you can restore growth and eliminate thinning patches, bald spots, and other symptoms with the top hair loss doctor in Maryland.

The First Step the Top Hair Loss Doctor in Maryland Will Take Is to Properly Diagnose Your Condition

There are multiple causes of hair loss, and getting a proper diagnosis is key to ensuring treatments work and achieve your goals. Common diagnoses include:

Male/female pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia):

In men, androgenetic alopecia causes hair loss on the front and top of the head, while in women thinning usually occurs on the crown and top of the head. This type of hair loss is hormone-related, and it’s the most common.

Affecting half of men aged 50 or older and half of women aged 65 or older, pattern baldness is considered permanent. This is because the follicles are permanently damaged, so they can’t regrow hair.

Alopecia areata and other autoimmune conditions:

Alopecia areata, which typically results in hair loss in small round patches, is caused when the immune system mistakenly attacks your hair follicles. It’s a chronic condition that can come on suddenly, though it may develop over time.

While it can affect other areas in addition to your scalp, it is much more noticeable in this area. People with lupus, psoriasis, eczema, vitiligo, and other autoimmune conditions are more likely to develop alopecia areata. 

Diseases/disorders/other conditions:

Conditions such as thyroid disorders and diabetes, as well as pregnancy, can lead to hair loss. Treatment of the underlying condition may help reduce hair loss, and in some cases, hair growth may return to normal once the underlying condition is treated.

Telogen effluvium:

This type of hair loss occurs when hair follicles enter the resting stage (telogen phase) of the hair growth cycle, leading to excessive shedding. Addressing factors such as weight loss, stress, and/or hormonal changes may restore normal growth once you resolve the underlying cause.

Certain medications:

There are a number of different medications that can cause hair loss. It’s not always possible to avoid this, as you may need to take prescriptions to address other health concerns. In some cases, changing the prescribed medication is possible to stop hair loss.

Also, there are types of drugs that can cause hair loss. For example, amphetamines, antibiotics, antidepressants, antihypertensives, beta-blockers, birth control pills, blood thinners, chemotherapy, steroids, weight loss drugs, and more. If you suspect this to be the culprit, your hair loss specialist will likely recommend you speak with the prescribing physician to see if an alternative treatment may be available.

Scalp conditions:

Scalp conditions such as dandruff, scaling, inflammation, redness, and bumps can also cause thinning. Various factors, including fungal infections, allergies, and autoimmune disorders, can cause these conditions. Treatments such as medicated shampoos and topical creams can help reduce symptoms and restore healthy hair.

What Treatments Are Available?

First, the top hair loss doctor in Maryland has accurately determined the cause. Then, they will recommend a treatment plan based on a variety of factors. For example, your unique needs, aesthetic goals, budget, time commitment, and other factors. Your personalized plan may include one or a combination of the following:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections involve extracting a patient’s own blood, separating the plasma containing platelets rich in growth factors, and injecting it into the scalp to stimulate hair follicle growth and thickness.

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP):

In cosmetic tattooing, specialized pigments deposit into the scalp to mimic the appearance of hair follicles. This procedure creates the illusion of hair coverage. It’s effective for those with extensive hair loss that also maintain a short hairstyle.

NeoGraft hair transplant:

This is an advanced hair restoration technique that utilizes automated follicular unit extraction (FUE) to harvest individual hair follicles from a donor area (usually the back of the scalp) and transplant them to thinning or balding areas. This minimally invasive procedure offers natural looking results with less scarring and downtime compared to traditional hair transplant methods.

Natural supplements:

This typically includes vitamins, minerals, and herbal extracts that support hair growth and health from within. Common ingredients include biotin, saw palmetto, vitamins B and D, and omega-3 fatty acids. While evidence supporting their efficacy varies, some individuals experience dramatically improved hair quality and growth with consistent use.  

Hydrafacial Keravive:

Like its facial counterpart, a hair HydraFacial is a specialized treatment that combines exfoliation, hydration, and nourishment. In this case, it’s done on hair follicles on the scalp using a proprietary three-step process. This includes the application of a blend of serums and peptides. The Keravive hair rejuvenating procedure aims to remove buildup, unclog pores, and promote healthier hair growth by delivering essential nutrients in the area.


A laser therapy option for hair loss, Aerolase utilizes a gentle yet powerful system to stimulate hair follicles and improve scalp health. This non-invasive treatment is suitable for various hair types and skin tones. It targets specific areas of concern with precision to promote natural hair regrowth. Additionally, it enhances overall hair density.
