Hair loss is common.
Our passion to help is not.
Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss and it affects men, women and children. Hair loss is different for each person and there are many causes and contributing factors, including genetics, age and hormones, that can determine the severity and rate of loss.
The most common cause of hair loss is hereditary thinning or baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia. According to American Academy of Dermatology Association, an estimated 50 million men and 30 million women in the United States are affected by this condition.
While only a medical professional can diagnose the cause of your hair loss, Tina Cimino Studio can help design a solution to regain your natural look and style. We truly care about each of our clients and strive to put you at ease and help your confidence shine through, regardless of the root cause of hair loss and whether your outlook requires a short-term or long-term solution.
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition where the immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles. This causes hair loss on the scalp, face and other areas of the body. Alopecia areata affect men, women and children and can occur in multiple family members, suggesting genetics are at play. There are many types of alopecia areata, some of which include: Alopecia totalis, Alopecia universalis, Ophiasis, Cicatricial Alopecia, and Traction Alopecia.
This condition, also known as male and female pattern hair loss, is caused by genetics. Inherited hair follicles are sensitive to a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which causes thinning and balding over time. Men who experience male pattern baldness typically lose their hair in a predictable way, beginning with receding at the temples or thinning at the crown. As this progresses, there is often hair left only at the back of the head or there may be complete balding. For women with hereditary hair loss, there is often no recognizable pattern but they may see a widening part, overall thinning or patchy hair loss.
Trichotillomania is an impulse control disorder that drives individuals to compulsively pull out their own hair. This disorder typically results in patchy bald spots on the scalp, eyebrows or eyelashes.
Autoimmune diseases can affect every part of the body, producing a wide range of symptoms that can include hair loss. In addition to alopecia areata, some of the most common disorders we see affecting our client’s hair loss include lupus and Hashimoto's Disease.
