Treatment of diseases of the hair & nails

Hair loss or an ingrown toenail often does not appear to be a medical problem to many people at first glance, and going to the dermatologist seems excessive. Diseases of the skin appendages, i.e. hair and nails, are of course the responsibility of dermatology and both hair loss and ingrown nails can have medical causes and can be treated.

For the diagnosis of possible diseases of hair or nails, the experienced dermatologists at Dermacare have the most modern methods at their disposal. In addition to the information provided by the patient, the attending physician performs a hair analysis or nail examination with the dermatoscope (digital magnifying glass) in order to then develop a patient-oriented treatment concept and offer the best possible treatment option.

Professional treatment by experienced dermatologists

Patient oriented treatment concept

The experienced dermatologists at Dermacare develop at diagnosis and treatment for skin diseases a therapy concept tailored to our patients, which is based on the current guidelines.

Detailed consultation

We attach great importance to a detailed consultation and therefore take the time for a detailed initial interview, during which you will receive all information regarding diagnosis, treatment, treatment options and the course of treatment and during which all your questions will be answered.

Latest technology

In order to optimise diagnosis and treatment, our medical specialists undergo continuous further training and are familiar with the latest treatment methods. As Dermacare is equipped with the latest devices on the market, we offer patients treatment based on the latest scientific and technical knowledge.

Diseases of the hair and nails

Haare und Nägel gehören zu den sogenannten Hautanhangsgebilden, deren Wachstum überwiegend hormonell gesteuert wird. Störungen oder Unregelmäßigkeiten des Hormonhaushaltes können sich demnach auf Haare und Nägel auswirken und zu unerwünschten Veränderungen führen. Neben harmlosen Gründen können Veränderungen an Haaren und Nägeln auch Hinweise auf ernsthafte Erkrankungen geben, und sollten ärztlich abgeklärt werden.

Hair, hair loss

The hair follicles under the skin are responsible for the production of hair. From here, a healthy hair grows for about two to seven years, daily by about 0.35 millimetres. When the growth is finished, the hair is shed after some time, about 3 weeks, so that a new one can grow. There are between 90,000 and 150,000 hairs on the scalp, depending on the hair type. It is part of the natural process that between 60-100 of them fall out daily. This hair loss is therefore normal and therefore it is not always easy to predict when hair loss will become a cause for concern.

The line between “normal” and alarming hair loss is fluid. It is judged how much hair we lose, how easily and in which areas. If the hair loss is concentrated in individual hair areas, this can be an indication of serious hormonal imbalances or other diseases.

Age-related hair loss, PRP

Age-related hair loss, which is hereditary, is medically harmless, but for many people affected it is often a major cosmetic problem. The receding hairline in men as well as thinning hair in older women can scratch your self-esteem.

With PRP autohaemotherapy, in which the hair roots are treated with plasma extracted from the patient’s own blood, hair medicine has a possibility to stimulate hair growth in a natural way. PRP (platelet rich plasma), which is obtained by centrifugation and then injected into the hair roots, ensures that the hair roots are sufficiently nourished and stimulates hair growth. With this treatment, hair loss can be stopped permanently and the hair becomes thicker again.


If nails are brittle, soft, thin or splintery, this is often the result of a disturbed keratin formation of the nail. As with most changes in the hair, this disorder can have several reasons. Among the most common are a lack of minerals (calcium, silicic acid, etc.), hormonal changes, but also other underlying diseases that have not yet been identified, which is why a specialist examination by a dermatologist is recommended in the case of changes in the nails.

Ingrown nail

Incorrect nail cutting, tight shoes, a hereditary narrow nail bed, these are all possible causes for an ingrown toenail (Unguis incarnatus). When the nail presses on the nail bed, an inflammation often forms, which makes the tissue susceptible to the entry of bacteria. If the ingrown nail continues to press on the inflamed area, this often causes severe pain, which can only be treated by a dermatologist.

Treatment at Dermacare Vienna

In the course of the initial consultation at Dermacare, which takes about 30-35 minutes, the experienced dermatologist develops an experience-based therapy concept oriented to the patient. Dermacare uses the latest procedures and technologies for diagnosis, examination of hair and nails using a dermatoscope (digital magnifying glass) as well as for treatment (laser / PRP / surgical).

At a check-up appointment, which takes place one to three months later depending on the course of treatment, a possible follow-up consultation is scheduled within the framework of the progress control/ discussion of findings, depending on the course of treatment.

The medical service within the scope of the treatment of diseases of the hair and nails can be submitted to the health insurance company for cost absorption.

Assistentinnen und Dr. Cseh sind sehr freundlich, keine langen Wartezeiten vor dem Termin.
Empfehlenswert! Ich habe Dermacare schon mehrmals besucht. Besonders zufrieden war ich mit Gesichtsbehandlungen bei Klaudia und Permanent Make-up Entfernung bei Mateus. Klaudia ist sehr lieb und nimmt sich immer genug Zeit. Mateus brauchte nur 2 Sitzungen um... meine alte Augenbrauen loswerden. Als nächstes habe ich eine Behandlung mit CO2 Laser geplant. Die Beratung dazu bei Dr. Cseh war sehr hilfreich.read more

Ich hatte die Behandlung gegen Aknenarben mit dem CO2 Laser bei Dr. Cseh und bin total zufrieden! Während dem Beratungsgespräch hat er alles erklärt und alle Fragen ausführlich beantwortet. Schon nach der ersten Sitzung gibt's sichtbare Verbesserungen und... die Behandlung selber war überhaupt nicht schmerzhaft, als ich's mir vorgestellt habe. Herr Dr. Cseh ist äußerst kompetent, sympathisch und einfühlsam. Ich kann ihn 100% weiterempfehlen!read more
