Summary Conditions of the hair and scalp can be genetic or the result of infection, hormone imbalance, medication, trauma, or underlying primary disease. Regardless, they often cause significant psychological distress and sometimes physical discomfort, though much can be done to treat these complaints. Hair and Scalp Treatments focuses on therapy of hair and scalp disorders and includes chapters on procedures that are commonly used, as well as chapters on each specific disorders. Each chapter briefly describes the disease or the procedure to the reader and then teaches the step-by-step treatment algorithm or the way to perform the procedure. This book also discusses several topics that patients seeking treatment for hair disorders ask the physician, such as how to choose proper shampoo and conditioner, hair dyes, nutritional supplements, and future treatments with regenerative medicine. Hair and Scalp Treatments is the only book of its kind focused on treatment and addresses topics that are not covered by current titles on hair disorders. Written and edited by leading experts in the field, this practical guide can be used not only by dermatologists but by general practice and family physicians as well.
