What is normal hair loss?

Every day, a physiological hair loss of between 70 and 150 hairs takes place.


What are the causes of hair loss?

There are many causes of hair loss. Factors such as stress, nutrient deficiency, certain diseases (e.g. metabolic diseases, autoimmune diseases) or the use of certain medications often play a role in hair loss. Fortunately, after treatment, or elimination of the cause, the hair usually grows back again.
Increased hair loss due to seasonal factors is also common.

Other possible causes of hair loss include a genetic predisposition (especially in men) and hormonal changes (e.g. in women after pregnancy or during menopause).

What types of hair loss are there?

There are different types of hair loss. A distinction is made between round patches of hair loss (alopecia areata), and diffuse hair loss (alopecia diffusa), that affects the whole scalp.

alopecia areata KopfWith hair loss in patches (alopecia areata), there is often a connection with an underlying disease, such as thyroid disorders.





Hair loss where scarring develops (scarring alopecia) is less commonly caused by a scalp disease. In this case, a fungal infection or an autoimmune reaction can be the cause. It is important to promptly initiate treatment - after scarring, hair can no longer grow in the affected areas.


What diagnostics are available?

In order to be able to initiate the appropriate treatment, a comprehensive evaluation is required (detailed medical history, assessment of the scalp, blood tests, etc.). In some cases, a scalp biopsy is necessary to rule out scalp disease.


We recommend a Trichoscan, here the scalp is documented using high-resolution photos and then analyzed. In addition to the number of hairs in the different regions of the scalp, we also get further information, e.g. how many hairs are growing. But hair thickness and diameter are also measured. Without removing hair, a special camera can be used to ascertain the status based on the living hair. This helps us to assess how your individual hair growth behaves, whether there is pathological hair loss in your case and thus to determine an individual therapy for you.

This procedure is also suitable as a follow-up check after successful therapy. The costs are EUR 90 per scan.


What treatment is available?

Treatment depends on the exact form of hair loss and the underlying cause(s) that are detected. After a comprehensive diagnosis, we will provide detailed advice on possible treatment, so that we can then decide on a course of action together.

In addition to treating the possible underlying disease and eliminating factors that may promote hair loss such as stress or deficiencies, the available treatments include local and systemic therapies, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma; blood therapy) and mesotherapy. If deficiencies have been detected, dietary advice is recommended, and we like to refer patients to our trusted and experienced nutritionist.

  • I traveled from London to see Dr. Johannes Bisschof for wrinkle treatment. I was extremely impressed with my wrinkle treatments. He has a very 'natural look' approach and after everyone asked me why I look younger and more relaxed I will definitely have it done again. I have also asked him advice on my skin texture and he suggested 2 creams and my skin has never looked this good. I feel 10 years younger. I can highly recommend him!

  • Dr Bisschoff used a laser to treat my skin scars. I was happy with the package that he offered. He is knowledgeable, friendly and I loved the end result.

  • Dr. Bisschoff was absolutely wonderful and a great help. He took time to make sure I was comfortable, spoke incredible English, and explained everything in a careful and detailed manner. Thanks to his help, my skin condition was solved! I would recommend him to anyone.
  • Best dermatologist in Vienna. Really cares about his patient. He is a very good listener. He spent as much time as its needed and he doesn't rush patient. His aim is actually to help people not only earn money (like some of doctors tend to do). On the top of all of that he is really positive person and he explains everything in the proper manner.



  • Excellent doctor, extremely attentive! One of the best medical experiences I had.
