Hair loss is a very distressing condition for anyone who has experienced it. There are many reasons why you may have lost or are losing your hair. Dr. Keith Llewellyn offers hair loss treatment for residents of Santa Barbara, Ventura, Solvang, Santa Maria, Santa Ynez, and the surrounding areas of California.
What is Hair Loss?
Hair loss is a condition in which an individual loses hair without it regrowing or having it grow thinner and weaker. Shedding hair is a natural part of the growth process, but certain conditions will cause you to lose hair faster than it grows. As a dermatologist experienced with hair loss in men and women, Dr. Llewellyn can try to help you identify the underlying cause of your hair loss. Once the cause of your hair loss is known, Dr. Llewellyn may recommend effective treatments to slow the hair loss and possibly even help you regrow hair in areas where you are thinning or bald.
Many people are surprised to learn that dandruff (seborrheic dermatitis), the most common cause of an itchy red, flaky scalp, does not cause hair loss unless there is excessive scratching. Sometimes, excessive, vigorous scratching will lead to traumatic hair loss. If you have dandruff (seborrheic dermatitis), Dr. Llewellyn can help you control the problem.

What is Alopecia Treatment?
Alopecia is a clinical term that describes hair loss. There’s are many types of alopecia (including alopecia areata) and diagnosing what type is causing your hair loss is an important first step towards treating your condition. Alopecia (hair loss) may be due to underlying medical conditions, medication side effects, genetic predisposition, stress, hormonal changes, and many other reasons.
What is Seborrheic Dermatitis?
Seborrheic dermatitis (also known as dandruff) is a chronic, recurrent, red, scaling rash that frequently occurs on the scalp, but may also involve the nose, cheeks, eyelids, eyebrows, ears, chest and other areas. Many people are surprised to learn that dandruff (seborrheic dermatitis), the most common cause of an itchy red, flaky scalp, does not cause hair loss unless there is excessive scratching. Sometimes, excessive, vigorous scratching will lead to traumatic hair loss. If you have dandruff (seborrheic dermatitis), Dr. Llewellyn can prescribe treatments that can help you control the problem.
What Should I Expect from Hair Loss Treatment?
Aloe Dermatology does not offer hair transplants for hair loss. After an initial consultation, Dr. Llewellyn may recommend blood work to be sure there is no identifiable medical cause for your hair loss. In some cases, scalp biopsy may be recommended and scheduled to diagnose the cause of your hair loss. Once diagnosed, Dr. Llewellyn will be able to discuss your treatment options along with their risks and benefits with you.
