Yes! Our office treats men and women for hair loss/hair thinning. Since there are different reasons or causes of hair loss for men and women, we focus on treating the source of the concern.

What it treats
Hair Loss Treatments in Elgin at Dundee Dermatology
You’ll meet with a doctor for a consultation to discuss your goals for hair loss treatments. During this time, we’ll learn about treatments or products you’ve tried in the past, as well as your desired results.
Custom Treatment Plan
Based on the consultation, we will recommend the treatment that best fits your needs. Hair restoration is not a one-size-fits-all treatment process, different patients often require different techniques. We may recommend one specific treatment or a combination of procedures for the best results possible for you as an individual.

Frequently Asked Questions
LED therapy and prescription medication for hair restoration are virtually painless.
Another hair loss treatment in Elgin at Dundee Dermatology is LaseMD therapy, this procedure is also very tolerable, as our team will prepare your scalp prior to treatment and keep you comfortable throughout the process. Some patients describe the feeling as a mild sunburn.
The best way to determine your candidacy is through an in-person consultation. We’ll examine your scalp, discuss your goals for treatment, and plan what will work best for you as an individual.
If you feeling concerned or self-conscious about your hair thickness, density, fullness or hairline, you may be an excellent candidate for a non-surgical hair restoration treatment at Dundee Dermatology. We treat women and men of all ages and will customize your treatment plan according to your specific needs and desired results.
LaseMD is a fantastic alternative to hair transplant surgery and it can also treat all hair types and skin tones. This laser treatment uses non-ablative laser energy to create controlled “microchannels” into the scalp. These microchannels prepare the scalp to receive hair restoration serums containing growth factors. The microchannels are the perfect receptacle for this transformative product that increases blood supply and stimulates hair follicles, kickstarting hair regrowth.
A typical treatment plan with LaseMD consists of 6 total treatments spaced 1 month apart. This allows your scalp to receive the treatment to its fullest potential and treat during every phase of the hair growth cycle. There is no downtime or recovery period, but you may experience some tenderness post-treatment.
The root of hair loss can differ greatly from person to person. For women, hair loss is often tied to hormonal changes, but genetics or even certain hairstyles that “pull” the hair can lead to hair loss. For men, genetics is a large factor of hair loss. Other causes of hair loss can be certain medical conditions, medications, stress, and nutrition deficiencies.
