'Alopecia' is the word you want. You need to separate the items in you list with commas and change 'causes' to 'cause', the plural form of the verb. I would reword the last part of the sentence.


Sagging facial muscles, graying hair, alopecia, kyphosis, and a world of other things cause detrimental changes in appearance.
