At Ransom/MD, we receive a lot of common questions about hair restoration and hair loss, so here are some fast FAQ’s to help you understand the techniques used and why hair loss occurs.

There are numerous hair restoration techniques, all of which are different in how they work. There are minimally invasive or surgical techniques, depending on the needs of each specific patient. Typically, hair is harvested from one area of the head and grafted to the areas where hair loss has occurred.

Genetics, hormonal imbalance, stress, aging, diet, and habits are just some of the common causes of hair loss. Only a diagnosis can confirm the exact cause of hair loss. The good news is, Dr. Ransom can provide solutions for hair loss in most cases.
