Dermatologist Dr. Azadeh Shirazi Shares Her Decades-Long Hair Regimen and Other Beauty Secrets

Dr. Azadeh Shirazi

Azadeh Shirazi, MD is a Southern California-based board-certified dermatologist, mom of two, and businesswoman. She also has really, really great hair.

The 41-year old didn’t always love her locks. She started to experience hair thinning in her early thirties, so she jumped into action. For a decade, she utilized topical minoxidil to support her strands. Now, she uses a prescription formula from her line, AZ MDTM. Beyond at-home regrowth treatments, she also takes vitamins and gets PRP in her scalp to maintain her enviable mane.

As always, talk to your doctor before starting any new treatment, medication, or supplement.

Dr. Shirazi’s head of hair may sound like a lot of work, but the biggest challenge she faces isn’t aesthetic at all — it’s the business aspect of her job. “It's something that I'm learning a lot about: trying to manage and run a business, which is a new deal to me,” she says, in regards to managing overhead, staff, and finances at her practice, La Jolla Dermatology & Laser Surgery Center℠. I am a great dermatologist,” she explains. “I have a lot of passion for what I do, and I know dermatology so well — now, I'm also a businesswoman.”
