What is Alopecia?

Alopecia is a condition characterized by hair loss that can occur on the scalp or other parts of the body. It can manifest as thinning hair, bald patches, or complete hair loss. Alopecia can be caused by various factors, including genetics, autoimmune disorders, hormonal changes, and stress. While there is no known cure for alopecia, there are effective treatments available to manage its symptoms and promote hair regrowth. Treatment options may include medications, topical treatments, and procedures such as scalp injections or hair transplantation. Alopecia can have a significant impact on self-esteem and quality of life, but with the right support and treatment, many individuals can manage the condition and regain confidence in their appearance.

How Can Metro Dermatology Help?

Our team of specialists at Metro Dermatology works together to provide patients suffering from alopecia with the diagnostic and corrective care they need to lead happy, confident lives. Before beginning treatment, a member of our medical staff will ask you about your medical history and patterns of hair loss while conducting a physical and scalp exam. If the cause of your hair loss is not clear after this examination, additional tests may be administered. Once a patient is diagnosed with alopecia, our specialists can begin to present treatment options that can help slow the progression of hair loss. Based on your individual case, we will select the treatment that is best suited to your needs.

At Metro Dermatology, we strive to provide comprehensive, effective care for a variety of conditions of the skin, hair, and nails. If you’re interested in learning more about the treatments we offer, our medical staff, or the ways we can help address your alopecia, contact our Elmhurst, Flushing, Fort Lee, or Bronx offices today.
