Hair Loss: A Silent Epidemic

Hello Ladies & Gentlemen! I want to talk about the very real problem of hair loss. This is a silent
epidemic, not just in Boca Raton but worldwide.

** 2/3 American men have visible hair loss by the age of 35.

** 25% of male pattern baldness starts before the age of 21.

** 85% of men have significantly thinning hair by the age of 50.

** 21 million women in this country alone have thinning hair.

** 40% of women have visible hair loss by the age of 40.

** 40% of people suffering from hair loss are female.

These are sobering statistics. Hair loss is not just a male problem, it is a human problem. If you have hair, you risk losing it. I suffer from hair loss and as a woman with hair loss, there simply is not much out there for information. Hair loss is a very intimate issue for anyone but for women it is humiliating in so many ways. We are not supposed to go bald! We don’t want to admit that we have a problem with hair loss, and we certainly don’t want to talk about it. However, I am here to take the shame out of hair loss for both men and women. I have had a hair transplant myself. I started to lose hair in my early 30’s and by the time I was 39, I needed a hair transplant.

My own experience with a doctor who didn’t fully understand hair loss is what changed the course of my career. I now specialize in skin, hair and intimate rejuvenation in Boca Raton. I provide both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options for hair loss. I work closely with my patients to address the various causes of hair loss to provide a great and natural long-term result. No one needs to know that you had a hair transplant or restoration, but you will want to tell friends and family about your great results!

I have been named as the “Expert in Hair Transplantation and Restoration” by Boca Raton Magazine and Delray Magazine. I see patients from Boca Raton, Delray Beach and surrounding areas in South Florida as well as patients from as far as Australia. It takes a village. We are in this together. It’s good to talk about it! Please feel free to call our office to set up a complimentary consultation. What do you have to lose but more hair?
