There are numerous diseases that can affect the hair and scalp. Hair loss can be caused by a variety of conditions. Diseases such as alopecia areata, anemia, male/female pattern baldness, and infections of the scalp can all cause significant difficulty and loss of daily well-being. Stanford Dermatology has established a special clinic focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders of the hair.
Photodynamic therapy is a precise, patient friendly way to treat some skin cancers and precancerous growths caused by sun damage.
Also called light therapy, phototherapy exposes the skin to lasers, LED, fluorescent lamps, and ultraviolet or infrared radiation to treat diseases. Phototherapy may be used on the whole body or smaller areas.
