Home / Medical / Scalp Concerns
Dealing with hair loss or scalp irritation are emotional events, and can lead to social concerns and confidence issues. The best time to take action is immediately. As soon as you start to notice a change in your hair or scalp you should seek out a Trichologist or dermatologist.
Trichology is the study of the hair and scalp and overlaps both the medical and cosmetic areas that are not normally covered by either a doctor or hairstylist. A Trichologist can help you address many concerns about your hair and scalp treatment.
Hair Prosthesis Centre in Barrie has a certified Trichologist who can help you cope with the root cause of your hair loss concern and provide individualized hair loss treatment options.
Below are some of the many scalp and hair loss causes that a trained Trichologist can help with.
Androgenetic Alopecia (Male/Female Pattern Baldness): The most common genetic scalp problem; a genetic autoimmune disease that rewires the body to attack itself, starting with hair loss
Women’s Hair Loss: Can be caused from stressors such as an unhealthy diet or blood circulation issues.
Cradle Cap: Oily, yellow scaling or crusting on a scalp caused by a build up of sticky skin oils, scales, and sloughed (shedding) skin cells and causes redness, greasy, scaly patches and itching.
Dry Dandruff: White flakes of dead skin in your and an itchy, scaling scalp.
Greasy Hair & Scalp: Can be genetic and results from oil overproduction in the hair causing an oily scalp and greasy hair from the roots to the ends, or a greasy scalp and roots with dry ends.
Dry Hair & Scalp: As you age, your scalp produces less oil to moisturize your hair, or your hair lets moisture escape and causes dry, brittle hair (and, in very rare cases, can cause hair loss).
Chemotherapy & Radiation: Causes your skin and scalp to become dry, irritated and sensitive.
Eczema: Accelerated shedding of normal scalp skin cells.
Psoriasis: Also known as Seborrhoeic dermatitis; a genetic chronic skin condition that causes skin cells to grow at an increased rate to form thick patches most commonly found on the scalp, knees, elbows, tailbone and back.
