Hair & Scalp Center

Alopecia refers to excessive loss of hair from the head or anywhere on the body. This can be caused by several conditions related to age, gender, or ethnicity. Certain types of alopecia are worsened by stress. Also hair grooming practices, like tight hairstyles, excessive brushing or using the wrong clippers or blades for facial hair, can cause itching or burning over long periods of time.

In terms of treatment, time is of the essence. Early detection and management can significantly improve outcomes and help preserve more active hair follicles, resulting in greater potential for hair regrowth.  Treatment options include topical prescription ointments, scalp injections, scalp biopsy. scalp reduction, vitamin supplementation, and PRP (platelet rich plasma).

If you believe you might have alopecia, it is important that you be evaluated by a board-certified dermatologist. At Eternal Dermatology, Dr. Rodney is an expert at hair and scalp disorders, and can help you formulate a treatment plan tailored specifically for you. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
