Hair & Nails
SkinCare in Wellesley, MA
A dermatologist is primarily focused on treating skin conditions, so you may be surprised to find that Dr. Goodkin also treats common issues regarding the hair and nails. These include alopecia, hyperhidrosis, and fungal nail infections.
Alopecia is a condition which causes hair loss, usually due to immune system dysfunction. Dr. Goodkin can evaluate alopecia symptoms and recommend a treatment plan that will work best for you.
Characterized by excessive sweating, hyperhidrosis can be treated using medication, prescription deodorants, or Botox injections.
An overgrowth of fungus in the tails causes brittle, crumbling, or thickened nails that can be treated by a dermatologist.
