Diffuse alopecia which is a sub-division of alopecia leads to hair loss throughout the scalp while focal alopecia leads to hair loss or bald spots in certain areas. Dermatologists try to analyse if the scarring or non-scarring process has taken place before starting treatment. In alopecias that scar, inflammation within the scalp leads to damage of hair follicles. Usually, treatment is provided to prevent further hair loss as areas of the already affected scalp are unlikely to demonstrate major re-growth. There is hope for patients with non-scarring alopecia because the hair follicles still exist and treatment can be offered for re-growth of lost hair.
Hypertrichosis can occur in either localised or diffused form. The condition may be congenital or gotten at any time. Hirsutism which is a kind of hypertrichosis occurs in women and refers to excess body hair (androgenic hair) following the male pattern. Dermatologists evaluate the causes of hair growth by conducting blood tests that identify the precise origin of the irregular hair growth, and advice on the treatment.
The Dermatology team’s objective is to ascertain if the trouble in hair growth is alterable and to customise treatment to meet each patient’s unique needs.
