Hair Health Matters: Innovations in Workup and Treatment

May 13, 2021

By: Angela DeRosa, DO, MBA, CPE

More than 70 million women and men in the United States experience androgenetic alopecia and other forms of hair loss.

Causes and treatments vary, but this condition eats away at self-image, undermining self-esteem and impacting every interaction.

If you haven’t considered how hair health factors into your patient’s well-being, now is a great time to start. With new innovations in lab work up and treatment, there are more options than ever to help address your patient’s heart-felt concerns.

Since declining hair health isn’t life threatening, it is sometimes brushed aside. But for your patient, this means we aren’t addressing an area that profoundly impacts them every day.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley from Massachusetts described her feelings after losing her hair to alopecia, saying “I felt naked, exposed, vulnerable. I felt embarrassed. I felt ashamed. I felt betrayed.” (And this is a strong, confident woman!)

Like me, I know you are moved by distress like hers. I want you to feel empowered to open conversations about hair health and to explore the causes and treatment options and have created an educational curriculum that gives you the practical tools you need to explore the innovative options for working up and treating issues that cause hair health. With some estimates as low as 12% of people receiving treatment, join me in taking hair health seriously and making treatment more accessible.
