Hair Loss

Hair loss from any part of the body can be devastating for both men and women. It can cause a lot of anxiety and distress. The recognition of the cause of the hair loss is vital to attempt to arrest any further hair loss – this involves a detailed consultation, investigations which may include blood tests and even a small piece of skin being sent off for analysis.

Although treatment options are limited once the diagnosis has been confirmed; then options may be explored which include topical therapy, injections and sometimes tablet therapy.

Dermatologists are trained in the diagnosis of skin, nail and hair disorders.
