Have you noticed that you are seeing less of your hair on your scalp and finding more hair than usual on the bathroom floor? You may be seeing the initial stages of alopecia. Active alopecia (hair loss) can affect men and women of all ages on the eye lashes, eyebrows, and scalp. No matter how healthy you are, anyone can suffer from hair loss. At ZO Skin Centre® San Gabriel and Pasadena, CA, we provide a compassionate alopecia consultation to patients just beginning to see hair loss to those experiencing significant hair pattern changes.
Hereditary factors, illness, injury, nutritional deficiencies, and surgery are some of the reasons why you may have lost hair. Our medical team at the ZO Skin Centre® will talk with you to review your family history, medical history, diet and exercise regimens, medications, and more to help you figure out the source of your hair loss. Then, we can help you make an informed decision for your next steps in treatment. While we cannot cure alopecia, we can do our best to slow down the progression of the hair loss and help encourage new, healthy hair growth (if possible). It may also be necessary to refer you to a medical provider that can further address your alopecia needs with care.
We see patients at the ZO Skin Centre® with diverse levels of hair loss. If you are experiencing hair loss and would like to have an alopecia consultation, we would be thrilled to discuss options with you and analyze your condition. Candidates for alopecia treatment will have thinning hair due to unknown causes, autoimmune diseases, genetics, nutritional deficiencies, inflammation (scarring alopecia), and other reasons that we will discuss during your appointment.
