Scalp Biopsy

What is a Scalp Biopsy?

The first step to regrowing hair is identifying the cause of the hair loss. A scalp biopsy is sometimes recommended by Dr. Dy to aid in the diagnosis. This is an in-office outpatient surgical procedure. Local anesthetic is injected into the scalp tissue to minimize any pain. Dr. Dy uses a 4-mm punch biopsy tool to obtain the tissue sample. As a board certified dermatopathologist, Dr. Dy personally examines the tissue under the microscope so that she can give you a diagnosis as well as assess the potential for future hair regrowth.
