Alopecia, the clinical term for hair loss, is a common concern. While it is not usually
a health hazard, hair loss can be a warning sign of a deeper medical condition. In any case, it is a source of heartbreak and embarrassment to men, women, and children, as they see the impact on their appearance. Dr. Vikram Khanna
and his team bring hope to these individuals, with a wealth of medical dermatologic knowledge, and compassion. Effective treatment options for hair loss are waiting for you at Dermatology Specialists of Illinois
Determining the cause of hair loss
There are hundreds of potential causes, ranging from heredity to primary skin diseases, drug interaction, nutritional deficiencies, infections, and internal diseases. The source of hair loss, or combination of contributing factors, has to be determined
before an effective treatment plan may be designed.
Dr. Khanna begins with a thorough evaluation of the clinical pattern of hair loss, to determine the fundamental cause.
- Physical examination of the scalp and hair.
- Review of the patient’s medical background.
- Discussion of family history of hair loss.
- Laboratory testing.
Arresting hair loss and encouraging growth
We utilize the latest technologies and techniques to stop shedding, prevent further hair loss, and encourage regrowth, including:
- Topical medications such as minoxidil are applied to the scalp to slow thinning and stimulate growth.
- Injections of corticosteroids into the scalp, if alopecia areata is cause by systemic inflammation.
- Oral medicine (finasteride), which reduces the amount of dihydrotestosterone produced by a man’s body. DHT constricts hair follicles.
- Laser therapies to improve circulation in the scalp.
- Nutritional supplements that foster healthy hair growth.
