Hair loss can be disconcerting, but there is some help available
Hair loss (alopecia) can be generalised or patchy, occurring on the scalp or indeed anywhere on the body. It can be temporary or permanent and occurs in men, women and children of all hair colours. Hair loss may be – and indeed often is – influenced by genetics, though also by medicines or disease processes. Naturally-occurring events in life such as pregnancy, stressful episodes or even fever can lead to hair loss. In some cases, it is not easy to repair.

How we treat hair loss?
At the Altruderm clinic we focus on conditions where hair loss is temporary, offering medical treatments which effectively encourage hair re-growth. At the outset, a comprehensive consultation will help to establish the cause of your hair loss. Based on the consultation, further tests such as blood work, skin scrapings and even a skin biopsy may be carried out. Our treatment range includes medical therapies such as topical lotions and injectable steroids, as well as effective techniques such as microneedling, mesotherapy and the use of PRP.
Eating a healthy balanced diet can help to reduce your chances of hair loss
Avoid hot oil hair treatments that can damage the follicles
Avoid hairstyles that pull the hair tight such as cornrows or pigtails
Losing one’s hair can be stressful, but booking a consultation with Altruderm is the first step towards a carefully-tailored and highly effective treatment.
