Hair Loss Santa Monica
Male pattern hair loss is treated with Rogaine® and/or Propecia®. Female hair loss can be associated with a hormonal imbalance and may be correctable with hormonal agents. Both physical and mental stress can contribute to a temporary hair loss condition called telogen effluvium. Alopecia areata is a condition whereby there is abrupt patch hair loss on various areas of the scalp. Sometimes, alopecia areata can occur on other body surface areas such as the eyebrows, eyelashes, beard area, and rarely the whole body. Alopecia areata in most instances is mild and is a common skin disorder which is typically treated with cortisone injections at the site of the hair loss and with topical agents. For more aggressive forms of alopecia areata, systemic agents and topical chemical formulations may need to be used.
