Did You Know August Was Hair Loss Awareness Month?

The American Academy of Dermatology designated August as Hair Loss Awareness Month. Across the country and around the world, hair loss is an inevitable part of life for many individuals and can be frustrating or downright devastating. By promoting awareness in August each year, The Academy of Dermatology would like to emphasize the fact that you don’t have to hide the problem. In fact, the problem can often be resolved or reversed by a dermatologist.

Pittsburgh men and women experiencing adverse or unwanted hair loss can learn more by visiting a dermatology clinic near them. Premier Plastic Surgery has three locations within the Tri-State Area and are pleased to offer the services of Dr. Ana Busquets, MD, FAAD. Dr. Busquets is board-certified and a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology. She can help answer your questions about hair loss and determine if your problem is treatable or simply temporary. Many benign conditions such as alopecia can cause hair loss and new moms should be aware that hair loss is very common after childbirth. Both situations are usually temporary and hair grows back to normal in a short time when the stressful or hormonal period normalizes.

“Many people think that hair loss is permanent,” Dr. Busquets claims. “But we want to use the month of August to raise awareness about the reversible or temporary causes of hair loss that can be treated.”

Contact Dr. Busquets today at http://www.premierplasticsurgerypa.com/dermatologist-pittsburgh.html if you are concerned about hair loss and looking for a dermatologist. Pittsburgh patients can be reassured that hair loss is very natural, but that there are often ways to stop or reverse the process.
