Top 10 Skin Concerns: Hair Loss
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.
