Dermatologists evaluate the causes of hair growth by conducting blood tests that identify the precise origin of the irregular hair growth, and advice a treatment.,p>The Dermatology team’s main aim is to ascertain whether the trouble in hair growth is alterable, and then to customise treatment as per patient’s unique needs.
In focal alopecia hair loss or bald spots occur in some areas of the scalp – whereas in diffused alopecia hair loss happens throughout the scalp. Prior to starting treatment, our dermatologists evaluate the condition to know whether there is a scarring or non-scarring.

In non-scarring type of alopecia, as the hair follicles still exists, treatment is offered to the patients for re-growth of lost hair. In scarring type of alopecia treatment is provided to prevent further hair loss.
