HAIR DISORDERS

Dermatologists are Specialists in Hair skin and Nail Disorders. Hair loss (alopecia) is a major concern for patients and an early accurate diagnosis by a specialist can potential reduce further hair loss and promote growth.

 

Conditions your Dermatologist commonly manages includes :

Male pattern balding / hair loss

Female pattern hair loss (also known as Androgenetic Alopecia)

Localised areas of hair loss

Increased Hair growth (also referred to as hirsuitism)

Inflammatory scalp dermatoses (often noted as being itchy and red)

 

Your Dermatologist will take a thorough history and may arrange further tests including blood tests and scalp biopsies.

 

Management of Scalp depends on the diagnosis but may include:

  • Topical medications
  • Injectable medications
  • 0ral therapy
  • Cosmetic camouflage advice
