Hair Loss Q&A

What causes hair loss?

If you have thinning hair, a receding hairline, or are noticing bald spots, your genetics could be the cause. But inherited traits aren’t the only factors that lead to hair loss; any of the following issues may be to blame:

  • Severe stress
  • Excessive hairstyling
  • Infections, like ringworm
  • Alopecia areata (autoimmune disease)
  • Hormonal changes, including thyroid problems


It’s possible that your medications may play a role, too. Certain drugs, including several high blood pressure medications, can all lead to hair loss. 

When should I see a doctor for hair loss?

Hair loss is often easier to treat in earlier stages. Dr. Folk encourages you to come in to Park Avenue Facial Plastic Surgery if you notice that your hair is thinning or that you’re losing too much hair each day. You should also schedule a hair loss evaluation if you have:

  • Itchy scalp
  • Patchy bald spots
  • Receding hairline


No matter how minor or how complex your hair loss condition may be, rest assured, Dr. Folk can help.  

Which hair loss treatment is most effective?

Dr. Folk employs medical or surgical techniques using modern technology and evidence-based medicine to treat your hair loss. He may recommend any of the following hair loss treatments:

Medication regimen

Park Avenue Facial Plastic Surgery offers a proprietary line of topical medicines that activate dormant hair follicles and promote natural hair growth. Serious hair growth is noticeable within three to six months. 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

PRP — known as liquid gold — is a solution of platelets and growth factor components derived from your own blood. When Dr. Folk injects PRP into various areas of your scalp, blood circulation increases, which delivers nutrients and oxygen to follicles. With a series of treatments, this stimulates natural hair growth in as little as three to six months.

Hair transplant 

You may also be a candidate for a hair transplant surgery in Dr. Folk’s American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF)-accredited facility. 

Hair transplant surgery involves removing patches of hairs from other areas, like the back of your scalp, and relocating them to thinning or bald areas. Though a short healing stage is necessary, this procedure provides fast and dramatic hair restoration results.
