Hair Conditions & Treatments

The average person has 5 million hairs. In addition to keeping you warm, hair is designed to protect your eyes, ears, and nose from small particles in the air. Common problems with the hair and scalp include hair loss, infection, and flaking. At Belcara Health, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Ciro Martins and his Physician’s Assistant, Caroline Harvey, can help treat your hair and scalp related problems.
