Here are a few major ways in which we can help you here at Singapore Dermatologist Experts:
Hair and Scalp Related Problems - Everyone suffers from hair issues at some point in their lives. A dermatologist can treat all of your hair and scalp problems. Hair loss treatments include surgical hair transplants, STM therapies, laser treatments and much more.
Some of the major and the most common hair diseases that your dermatologist can help you with are:
Alopecia: in general words alopecia means hair loss. There are many types of alopecia like Alopecia Arteria is a condition in which there is hair loss in patches. It can cause just small bald patches or total hair loss.
Second and the most common is Androgenetic Alopecia: this is also known as the male pattern or female pattern hair loss. This is a genetic disorder and starts with hair thinning near the crown and spreads to the whole head. Even though there is no cure for alopecia, your dermatologist can help you get a hair transplant and save the rest of the hair from falling.
Scalp Psoriasis: scalp psoriasis is a very common skin disorder that causes you to have red, scaly and dry skin on your scalp. It is contagious so, even one small spot can lead to your whole head getting infected. It might also spread to behind the ears and back of the neck if not treated on time. This is a genetic disorder, so if your family members have psoriasis, then the possibility of you developing the disease is high. To diagnose it your dermatologist will either just look at the infected spot or do a biopsy to be sure.
Hair removal: Your dermatologist can also help you in removing the excess amount of hair on any part of your skin permanently usually by the laser hair removal method.
It is normal to shed about a 100-hairs a day, but if your hair loss is much more than this going to a dermatologist is advisable. In addition to this some dandruff or itching is normal and happens due to weather changes, but any red itchy flaky spot should be immediately tested by a dermatologist.
