We may prescribe medications to treat hair loss. Prescription therapies can be an effective solution to treat hair loss. Treatments include prescription shampoos, oral steroids, and medications like finasteride, spironolactone, and minoxidil compounds.
The most common types of skin conditions, diseases and disorders that we treat include, but are not limited to the following.
An autoimmune condition characterized by sudden hair loss in patches on the scalp or other areas of the body. It occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the hair follicles, resulting in hair loss.
The most common form of hair loss, also known as male or female pattern baldness. It is typically characterized by progressive thinning of the hair in a predictable pattern and is influenced by genetic and hormonal factors.
Also known as scarring alopecia, it refers to a group of rare disorders that lead to permanent hair loss. In these conditions, inflammation destroys the hair follicles, resulting in scarring and irreversible hair loss.
A specific pattern of hair loss in women characterized by thinning of the hair on the crown and widening of the central part. It is influenced by genetic and hormonal factors and can lead to a decrease in hair density over time.
A condition primarily affecting postmenopausal women, characterized by progressive hair loss along the front hairline and sometimes the eyebrows. It is associated with inflammation and scarring of the hair follicles.
Hair loss caused by prolonged or repeated tension on the hair, often due to hairstyles that pull on the hair, such as tight braids, ponytails, or hair extensions. It typically occurs in the areas under constant tension.
