Alopecia

Alopecia (hair loss)

Medically known as Alopecia, hair loss may be noticed as shedding of hair, baldness, or hair thinning.

Hair loss can occur gradually, or quite suddenly, and sudden hair loss can be distressing for many patients.

Causes for hair loss include hormonal factors, immune disorders, thyroid disorders, nutritional deficiencies, sudden changes in diet and lifestyle, medications you may be taking (including supplements) and other medical conditions. Hair loss may be a complex problem to solve and often more than one factor may be involved.

If you are experiencing hair loss and need to explore the cause and what treatments may be helpful, then ask you GP for advice, and whether a referral to a dermatolgist is needed.

Please let us know when you book for a hair loss appointment so that we can schedule the correct appointment time.
