WEST PALM BEACH, FLA.
— A Florida man was treated by a dermatologist after he lost hair on his head and neck after his scalp was shaved.
The condition was not severe, according to a Facebook post by a customer named John.
He said he received treatment at the Broward Regional Medical Center for his scalp injury and has no longer had scalp hair loss.
“It’s not a lot of scalp, but it’s there,” he said.
I was able to get a good amount of hair on my head with a little scrubbing and a little facial scrubbing,” he told ABC News.
John said the treatment was a little bit more advanced than the scalp treatment he received in the past.
The Broward dermatologist told ABC that a patient with scalp injury has to have a very thorough and complete medical history, including the use of medications.
She also has to get the patient’s hair removed from his scalp and have it re-sewn in a lab.
They have to do this because if it wasn’t done, the hair would become infected, and then they’d have to go to the doctor to have it removed,” the dermatologist said.
A patient’s scalp injury can be treated with a scalp treatment.
The treatment involves applying a topical scalp cream to the scalp and applying a thin layer of electrolysis solution.
Dr. Mary Ellen Foschini, the medical director of the Browards Regional Medical Department, told ABC she is aware of the Facebook post.
Foschini said that the scalp is the area that may be damaged, and that it’s important that the patient be evaluated by a doctor before any treatment is begun.
You can use the procedure as soon as you notice any scalp irritation, Foscius said.
If the patient has to be in the hospital, they may have to wait up to a week to have the scalp shaved, FOScius said, but the patient can be released after the surgery is complete.
