There are countless men and women who experience some form of alopecia, or hair loss. This condition can be mild or severe and can cause emotional issues, such as insecurity or worry. Our dermatology office is pleased to offer a variety of treatments for hair loss and hair thinning at TruDerm in Allen and Plano, TX. We understand how frustrating this condition can be and want to help you stop additional hair thinning and restore fullness where it is possible.

Call our front desk today to schedule a private consultation. Our staff will be happy to sit down with you to discuss all your treatment options.
"Dr.Adler is an exceptional dermatologist. I have visited several doctors for my moderate adult acne and kept getting pushed to use Accutane, which I was uncomfortable with; it was refreshing when Dr.Adler offered safer and more long term solutions that fit my needs. I am grateful that he didn’t try to hard sell anything and even recommended that I stay away from excessive products or treatments, but rather simplify my routine with a “less is more” approach. He always has a smile and great attitude during our visits. I would recommend him just based upon his bedside manner and the TruDerm environment alone, but his knowledge and expertise far exceeds the other Plano area dermatologists I have seen, so it is easy to tell everyone I know about him."- L.F. / Google / May 31, 2019
"First I love Dr. Adler. I started going to him at the age of 24 (I am 50 and fabulous now) back in the day lol.. then he left the park cities location so for a couple years I did not see him and found out he was at TruDerm and made an appointment ASAP!My experience at this location was fabulous I did not have to wait long everyone who works there is nice and professional and they smile at you (I mean really smile at you) the facility is absolutely beautiful and clean and they have a selection of complementary drinks for the clients (calm down not cocktails lol) . I am glad I found Dr. Adler and I am glad he is at this location. I am happy."- M.P. / Google / Dec 03, 2019

"Earlier today I posted a negative review (not typical of me - I am one who usually stays quiet when frustrated and speak up only when I get great service - look at my Yelp history, 97% 5 stars) after there was some confusion around my appointment. I wanted to update my review, however, because the office manager and my amazing nurse Sally made it right by getting me back in for my treatment and handling me so kindly through it. They were eager and kind to help figure out a solution for me and I am very appreciative of their efforts. Things happen, it's how they are handled that matters. Eden the PA was also so so sweet she did my numbing cream and I will be booking an appointment with her for some medical skin care needs. I got the sublative laser treatment and I can't wait to share before and after photos :) Excited for the results. Thank you all!"- L.P. / Yelp / Nov 15, 2019
"My overall experience at this location (Legacy West) was amazing! The staff were very kind and patient. I’ve started using the products that were prescribed and I’m already seeing results! ❤️"- N.R. / Google / Nov 09, 2019
Alopecia treatment is best for patients with visibly thinning hair or patients in the early stages of hair loss. These treatments can stimulate dormant hair follicles and hair growth, but they cannot create new hair follicles. Typically, patients are between the ages of 30 – 55 years, but signs of alopecia can occur in patients in their 20s as well.
What to Expect
The first step is an examination of the balding area. Next, your practitioner will most likely perform a skin biopsy to confirm whether the patient has alopecia or not. During this procedure, a very small amount of skin is taken from the target area and studied under a microscope. The team member may also take a small blood sample to determine your diagnosis as well. Once the results are concluded, we will discuss all the treatment options that are available and which option may be best for your condition.
There are a variety of treatment options available for treating alopecia. Your treatment plan will be dependent on the severity of your condition and the location of hair loss. Treatment may include injectable or oral medications that help stimulate hair growth or topical gels and creams. Typically, treatment includes a combination of these options.
Our dermatology office is proud to offer one of the latest advancements in hair thinning treatment through PRP therapy and PRFM for patients with hair loss that has progressed. This intense form of PRP, when injected, lasts longer and helps assist in stopping hair loss.
