Top 10 Skin Concerns: Hair Loss

 In Dermatologist

Many male and female patients come to Sadick Dermatology to discuss hair loss, a problem that can be caused by a variety of issues.  The most common form is alopecia, a medical term for loss of hair from the head or body.

Alopecia can be a genetic phenomenon, hormone variation, or even a reaction to a hair treatment such as relaxers or hot hair irons.  In some cases it can be related to an iron deficiency.  For the best results, go to a dermatologist with a specialty in hair loss.  This physician can determine the exact cause and provide a treatment that may include topical creams and ointments as well as special prescription shampoos and conditioners.
