Who is a good candidate for hair restoration?
Even though the most common reason for hair loss is androgenic alopecia, there are several other reasons why you may be suffering from it. Androgenic alopecia is genetically caused due to a hormonal imbalance. Contrary to belief, women are also affected by this genetic condition, often experiencing hair thinning due to this. Most of the time this condition begins during puberty but effects aren’t seen right away, it can take years for effects to show.
Data has proven that women suffer from the condition as much as men do. Almost half of the women with thinning hair also experience hair loss. Sadly, hair is very closely tied to women’s femininity and identity, so hair loss has a lasting impact on their self-image and self-confidence. Dr. Gabel is mindful of the effects of hair loss on the appearance and confidence of women and he remains dedicated to helping all his patients lead better lives.

About West Linn, OR
West Linn is a city in the Clackamas county of Oregon. It is an affluent suburb within the Portland metropolitan area. West Linn has a history of early development prompted by the opportunity to harvest energy from nearby Willamette Falls. It was named after the US senator Lewis F. Linn of Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. Before the settlement by Oregon pioneers, West Linn was the home of ancestors of some of the present-day Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon. The Nature Conservancy is a point of interest to visitors; it is a 26-acre area that is located on a rocky plateau exposed by the Bretz Floods. It is now named after the camas which blooms there in spring; it also hosts 300 other species including the white rock larkspur, which is located in only half a dozen other places in the world. It features the Oregon white oak-madrone woodlands, a stand of quaking aspen, ponds, wet meadows, and vernal pools.
