Treatments Tailored to Your Needs
We understand that losing hair can be both a physical and an emotional struggle. Our physicians are here to guide you through your battle with hair loss so you can conquer and overcome it, forever. While our Boston specialists believe that hair loss in women is a common occurrence as you age, in some cases, the loss can be a reaction to medications, stressful events, and medical illnesses. However, the vast majority of men and woman lose their hair due to a genetic condition. Many patterns of hair loss in women are not as easily recognizable as those in men, so it is important to consult with a highly experienced, trained physician as soon as u detect loss of scalp hair.
No matter what form of loss you suffer from and no matter what stage of loss you are currently in, Dr. Ryan Welter and Dr. Clark Tan can customize a personal treatment plan that addresses your type of hair loss and exceeds your personal expectations.

Hair Loss in Women
Have you started to lose scalp hair and are unpleasantly surprised by the hair loss? The evolution can happen in a subtle or dramatic way, and in both instances you may be wondering why you are losing your hair. Unlike hair loss in men, hair loss in women most commonly begins by the age of 50 or soon thereafter. The pattern for female hair loss varies from men, as men usually develop the "cue-ball" appearance as their hairline begins to digress. However, the most common form of hair loss in women is due to the development of androgenetic alopecia, an inherited sensitivity to the effects of androgens on the hair follicles of the scalp.
Not all hair loss is permanent. Women, more than men, may experience temporary hair loss because of hormonal changes. Those changes most commonly occur during pregnancy, menopause, and when an individual's hypothyroidism is left untreated. Our board certified physicians understand how devastating and confusing losing your hair can be, which is why they encourage you to seek treatment as soon as you begin to notice continual loss of hair on the crown of your head. Not only will our team provide you with answers, they will offer you solutions, compassion, and reassurance.

Hair Loss in Men
Generally, male hair loss is permanent and occurs because of heredity, it can develop as a side effect from medication, stress, or sickness.

An In-depth Look at Male Pattern Baldness
Male pattern baldness is the result of decreased production of testosterone or dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is responsible for the development of male genitalia and the growth of hair. Baldness is attributed to the heightened sensitivity of the hair follicles on the top of your head to DHT. Because male pattern baldness is a genetic trait that can be passed from both the fraternal and maternal sides of the family, it is important to be proactive with the management of your hair at the first signs of hair loss.
Because our team has been diagnosing and effectively treating patients who suffer from hair loss for over a decade, we have a substantial amount of experience dealing with a wide variety of cases. Our team works cohesively to determine an optimal treatment plan for every patient, as each individual's needs, desires, and goals for their restoration are different.
