It can be scary and overwhelming to experience thinning hair, and often times it can feel like you are all alone. But the truth is, there is help out there. In fact, 50 percent of women experience hair loss. Knowledge is power, and that certainly applies here. The more you understand about hair loss, who can treat it, and what to look for in a doctor, the better equipped you will be to find a solution. Let’s talk about some common questions people ask when searching for a hair loss doctor.
Unfortunately, there is no real hair loss specialty out there, which means that those interested in this space need to figure out how to become experts on their own. That’s exactly what we did. Medi Tresse was established in 2015 by Dr. Mary Wendel, who started the practice after her own hair loss experience. She has treated women for more than 10 years and is dedicated to bringing the most cutting-edge treatment options to every Medi Tresse patient in a safe, discreet, and caring environment. Over the last decade, we have been honing our expertise in the hair loss space and strive to stay updated on the latest techniques and treatments. Check out our webinars to learn about various topics each month.
While hair is considered to be within the scope of a dermatologist, it is a very small part of what they do and not their main specialty. It’s best to seek the expert advice of a specialist trained specifically in the treatment of female hair loss for the best results. In fact, many dermatologists refer their patients to us.
Here at Medi Tresse, we are a practice that specializes in the treatment of female hair loss and all of our practitioners have been specifically trained in this area. We have seen more than 5,000 patients at our offices since we opened in 2015, and are comprised of physicians, advanced nurse practitioners, and registered nurses. We recommend booking a consultation for your personalized hair loss treatment plan.
Unfortunately, almost all of the treatments and services that we offer are not covered by insurance. This would be the case no matter where you go for treatment, and it’s not specific to us. However, many of our patients are able to use their flexible spending accounts (FSAs) for our services and treatments.
Unlike a dermatologist or PCP that accepts insurance (but still requires copays), we offer:
This will depend greatly on the type and extent of your hair loss, as well as the treatment we use. The first step of treatment is a proper diagnosis. There are more than five types of hair loss we see and everyone’s is unique. Our treatments will vary depending on the patient’s diagnosis and goals of treatment. We offer a wide range of treatments, from in-office services to at-home products, and will customize a treatment plan based on your hair loss and your needs.
While everyone’s hair loss is unique, we have seen more than 5,000 patients at our Medi Tresse offices, which means there is not much we haven’t seen. We are confident regardless of your situation that we can come up with a treatment plan for you.
