Contrary to common understanding, alopecia is not a single condition. If you are suffering from abnormal hair loss, alopecia areata, Anagen effluvium and male and female pattern baldness are some common potential causes.
In some cases, sufferers of alopecia can only remedy the problem with hair restoration treatments, such as implants. Other forms of the condition are treatable using more conventional methods. At Kayal Dermatology & Skin Cancer Specialists, we utilize several methodologies to treat and reverse the impact of hair loss.
Our team is focused on helping you regain your confidence with hair regrowth. Hair loss is most commonly associated with the scalp and face. However, any part of the body can be affected by alopecia, depending on the type of condition.
Recognizing Alopecia Symptoms
Given that alopecia is an umbrella term for several hair loss conditions, there are various possible causes. Stress, genetics and autoimmune factors are most commonly linked to hair loss. You may experience hair that is thinning, patchy baldness or a receding hairline. If you are unsure whether your symptoms indicate a long-term problem, Kayal Dermatology & Skin Cancer Specialists can facilitate a consultation.
Treatment for Alopecia
Intralesional injection of a corticosteroid, topical steroids, anthralin, topical Minoxidil, allergic contact dermatitis and systemic steroids are just some of the treatments we offer at Kayal Dermatology & Skin Cancer Specialists. Every approach is individualized to the patient. We can also combine treatments that may address underlying causes, including stress.
In many instances, repressing the immune system is the best way to restore follicle function. The first step in the process is identifying the cause of your alopecia. The compassionate hair and skincare specialists at Kayal Dermatology will take you through a consultation before recommending the most effective treatment plan.
Hair Loss Consultation
During your hair loss consultation, we will attempt to identify all contributing factors. Targeted treatment will directly address some underlying causes of alopecia, whereas secondary therapies can help you feel better in yourself and regain confidence.
