Hair loss dermatologist

Hair loss dermatologist Melbourne

Our dermatologists provide comprehensive investigation and treatment of all types of hair loss, in both adults and children. There are many causes of hair loss and an initial consultation is essential in finding the diagnosis and important factors contributing to hair loss. For example, nutritional or vitamin deficiencies such as iron, pregnancy, weight loss, thyroid disease, medications, stress, excessive styling and hormonal factors such as polycystic ovarian syndrome.

Hair loss conditions treated include: pattern or hereditary hair loss (male and female), alopecia areata, telogen effluvium (of which there are many causes), frontal fibrosing alopecia, lichen planopilaris, lupus and skin conditions of the scalp eg tinea infection or eczema.

The therapy offered depends directly on the cause of your hair loss and exact diagnosis, as well as previous treatments tried. Treatment options would include lotions, oral medications and steroid injections; these would be discussed with you in detail and we would hope for hair regrowth as well as longer term maintenance.

To learn the cause and acquire treatment for your hair loss, please call our friendly reception team to book for an initial consultation, with one of our dermatologists.
