Types of Alopecia
There are different types of treatments to help with treating Alopecia. If you were experiencing any of these sign or systems I would urge you to schedule an appointment with your Dermatologist to help with diagnoses and treatment options.
If you are looking for a non-surgical option, I’m certified in non-surgical hair replacement. You can purchase nonsurgical hair replacement systems such as full lace wigs, toupees, or choose other hair weaving and hair extensions options.
