Dr. Karen Soika
Everyone is born with a fixed number of hair follicles, and they produce (or, in the case of increasing baldness, cease to produce) hair for the rest of one’s life. There are a number of factors that can contribute to baldness. In a majority of cases, going bald is due to genetics.
Other causes include:
Over the past decade or so, shaving one’s head is an attractive option. It may be a decision based purely on an aesthetic choice, or it may be a method to avoid dealing with consistently problem hair, “bad hair days” or advancing baldness. Whatever the reason, a shaved head is not the style for everyone, and many people would opt for having a full, natural-looking, thick head of hair.
Most people think of baldness as a problem for men. However, it is a problem for many women as well. In fact, by the age of 50 (and usually after menopause), approximately 40 percent of women show signs of hair loss; it just manifests differently in pattern.
Male pattern baldness usually starts with a receding hairline at the front and gradually progresses to a bald patch on top of the head.
With women, however, shedding hair is not constant or gradual. It can be accelerated for 3 to 6 months, then remain fairly stable for 6 to 18 months. Also, the hair loss does not usually start at the front hairline and then move backwards over the scalp; rather, it starts more in the central area of the top of the head, possibly along a part line, and widens, down toward the temples.

Dr. Soika is a highly competent and compassionate cosmetic surgeon. She did an eye lift for me and I am absolutely thrilled and satisfied with the results. She is masterful at her work and takes extra care to ensure proper follow up and recovery is accomplished.
I suffered deep thermal burns to my face caused by the incompetence of a Dermatologist for 1 year with no relief, until I met Dr. Soika. She administered a treatment to give me the relief I was looking for. She was the only Dr.who took the time to listen, diagnose and performed a procedure with great results! Because of her, I am on the road to recovery!
My sons wedding was coming and I wanted to look and feel my best, I called Dr. Soika because I saw her local Ad. It was the best call I made! My skin looks 7 years younger-tighter, and I look for rested and awake. I didn’t believe it was possible without surgery, but Dr. Soika did an incredible procedure in 1 1/2 hours with no down time.A.
