Multicultural Hair & Skin Center
Cleveland Clinic dermatologists provide a wide range of treatments and procedures for skin and hair disorders, including cicatricial alopecia, chemical peels and African American skin types.
Established in 1923, Cleveland Clinic's Department of Dermatology has been treating skin and hair disorders in patients of all skin types for decades. In 2011, the Multicultural Skin Center was founded, recognizing and appreciating the specific medical and cosmetic needs of skin with more color, which includes patients with Asian, African American, Arab and Hispanic backgrounds. In light of this, MSC will uniquely focus on improving treatment outcomes of skin conditions which disproportionately affect this population.
An evaluation is undertaken to find out the causes of all types of hair loss. We offer cutting edge medical and surgical treatment of hair loss.
