Atlanta, GA Dermatologist & Hair Loss Expert
The Skin of Culture and Hair (SOCAH) Center was founded on the principle that a healthy lifestyle can significantly improve the overall health of an individual’s hair, skin, and nails. SOCAH Center is a comprehensive dermatology medical practice that focuses on making your brand ready for life’s everyday events through medical, aesthetic, surgical, and cosmetic treatments. We specialize in medical hair loss disorders and provide management of hair loss disorders to the general public and education to stylists, barbers, and trichologists.
Dr. Hill has created a comprehensive style of treatment that is personalized for each individual depending on his/her lifestyle decisions, culture and comfort level towards medical or holistic treatments. Together, the patient and Dr. Hill will decide the best treatment regimen that adequately fits the individual’s lifestyle.
We differ from a traditional practice in that we hold fewer patients so that we can build a rapport with each patient and provide quality medical care.

“Your hair and skin are the first things people see, and the last impression on their minds. They are a part of your personal brand and how you present yourself to the world. To lose your identity, due to hair loss or skin concerns involuntarily, is both disappointing and upsetting, and may impact your self-esteem,” says Nikki Hill, MD, a Board Certified Dermatologist, Hair Transplant Surgeon, and Medical Hair Loss Expert. With a warm personality and unique expertise for hair loss disorders and graceful skin maintenance, Dr. Hill’s genuine concern for every one of her patients is more than evident.

She completed a clinical and epidemiology research fellowship at Emory University School of Medicine.

An Atlanta, Native, Dr. Hill is a nationally recognized expert in the diagnosis and treatment of medical hair loss disorders. She founded her practice the Skin of Culture and Hair Center (SOCAH Center) on the principle that a healthy lifestyle can significantly improve the overall health of an individual’s hair, skin, and nails.
Have A Question For SOCAH CENTER?
Socah Center can provide some basic responses to your questions, feel free to send any questions to us using the contact form on the contact us page. Here is an example of a client who had some questions:
Question: I have PCOS and have taken Metformin & BCP (Beyaz) for years. I stopped the BCP 7 months ago & had severe hair loss. Advice?
Advice: I understand your concern. Typically, we lose between 100-150 strands of hairs a day. This alone can be quite alarming if we actually capture each strand lost. Your hair strands are in three phases at all times: a growth phase, a rest phase, and a fall out phase. Typically, a certain percent of hairs are in each phase at a time.
A dynamic shift can occur resulting in the majority of the hairs moving to the fall out phase, called a telogen effluvium (TE), or stress shed. This can be the result of a few things, including starting and stopping medications (birth control pills are infamous for this), surgeries, illnesses, stress, nutrition, medical conditions, and more.”
