About Hair Disorders
Many factors can contribute to hair disorders. Alopecia, or hair loss, may be caused by medical conditions such as lupus, thyroid disorder, protein or iron deficiencies, or hormonal imbalances. Hirsutism -- abnormal hair growth in women (such as a beard or chest hair) -- may be caused by ovarian, adrenal, thyroid, or pituitary conditions. Identifying the cause and treating the condition are our goals.
We work with people who have the most complicated cases of hair loss and hair overgrowth, as well as people who experience chemotherapy-related hair loss. Our experienced dermatologists are also dedicated researchers who continually test new therapies for hair disorders through our clinical trials.
