Alopecia

Alopecia

Alopecia refers to the loss of body hair typically on the head. This can occur naturally through behavior such as hair pulling or having tight braids. Typically, when a hair falls out, a new hair will begin growing at the follicle. However, for those who have alopecia, the hair growth process doesn’t begin again until after a hair falls out, which over time will lead to less and less hair. Alopecia affects both men and women.

At the Center for Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology, we know that your hair is a large part of your personality and image. Losing your hair can affect your confidence. This is why we’re dedicated to helping you get your hair back with a hair restoration technique called Neograft. The procedure is gaining popularity across the globe because of the quick recovery period that leaves much less scarring than traditional methods.

The minimal scarring is achieved by not cutting the scalp, which is seen in traditional methods. This also drastically reduces bleeding, which is one of the main reasons why recovery time is so short. Some patients report for work the day after the procedure.
