Hair Loss Dermatologist in Melbourne
Did you know that it is normal to lose up to 100 hairs per day? Excessive hair loss (called alopecia) affects men, women and children. More than 60% of all men and 40% of all women will experience a hair loss condition within their lifetime.
There are many types of hair loss including female and male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia), autoimmune hair loss (alopecia areata) and even hair loss that is caused by nutritional deficiencies and pulling the hair too tight (traction alopecia). Making the correct diagnosis and planning the treatment is the first step to regaining your hair and your confidence. Treatment may include vitamin supplements, lotions or foams, tablets and even surgical procedures.
The key is treating hair loss as early as possible and knowing that you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on fancy lights, lasers and “packages.” Chroma Dermatology can provide cost-effective and safe treatments that will help to stop progressive hair loss and even help regrow and thicken hair.
The first step is to consult with a dermatologist about your diagnosis and what can be done for your type of hair loss.
