Hair Loss, also known as Alopecia

Hair disorders


Many conditions, diseases, and improper hair care result in excessive hair loss.  At Dermatology & Aesthetic Center of El Paso, we will evaluate a patient's hair problem by asking questions about medical disorders, recent illnesses, diet and exercise, medications and vitamins including health food taken in the last six months, family history of hair loss, and hair care habits.  Hormonal effects may be evaluated as well. We will examine the scalp and hair and possibly order blood tests or do scalp biopsies to obtain an accurate diagnosis.
