Hair Loss (Alopecia) Treatment

Hair loss, also called alopecia, encompasses many conditions that can lead to partial or full loss of hair, with or without scarring (called scarring alopecias). The key to determining the type of hair loss is based on the physical exam and history, plus different combinations of lab tests and a possible biopsy of the scalp.

There are several common causes of hair loss including male pattern hair loss, female pattern hair loss, telogen effluvium (stress induced), alopecia areata and several dozen more potential causes that are less common.

Some types of hair loss are reversible while others are permanent, so it is important to diagnose and confirm the cause as early as possible. Please call your dermatologist if you hair loss is worsening.
