Three Common Scalp Problems
Reasons NOT to get Hair Restoration, Part 2
A successful hair restoration procedure is highly dependent on a healthy scalp. Problems in the skin of the head can create an environment that is not conducive to healing. The scalp needs to heal well, if new grafts are to grow properly. There are several serious, rare conditions, such as Alopecia Areata that need to go into remission before hair restoration can be considered. We’ve touched upon those here before. This week, we are discussing three of the more common, every day scalp problems. These conditions need to be treated and contained, before hair restoration can move forward.
– itchy or sore skins with silvery scales. Treatment usually begins with a topical cream or ointment. This skin problem can become a serious health condition.
– a red itchy rash with flaky scales, it resembles eczema. Treatment typically includes an anti-fungal.
– dandruff like flakes with itching. Some types cause rings of hair to fall out (ringworm.) Treatment typically includes an anti-fungal.
If you have an unidentified issue with your scalp, a trip to your family doctor, or Dermatologist is in order. Once you know what is going on, you can begin treatment. When your scalp condition is contained, you may move forward with hair transplantation. If your condition was serious, Dr. Danyo may coordinate with your Dermatologist, to help prevent any possible flare-ups.
Shaving is a common irritant and cause for scalp issues. Most transplant procedures require a good portion of the scalp to be shaved. Dr. Danyo is one of the few doctors performing the Shaveless FUE. With this procedure, there is no need to shave and minimal downtime. If you would like a free consultation, or tour of our spa-like facility, give us a call.
