Alopecia

No one should have to tolerate hair loss. The good news is, treatments are available.

Alopecia is a broad term describing hair loss that can affect people of all ages. We offer a full range of treatment options so you can stop worrying about your hair and start feeling confident again.

What is Alopecia?

There are multiple types of Alopecia, each with its own course of treatment. Some of the most common types are:

Alopecia Areata

This autoimmune disorder causes your hair to come out, often in clumps the size and shape of a quarter. It’s not contagious, but it can be devastating for people who suffer from persistent bald patches or general loss of all their body hair.

Androgenetic Alopecia

Typically known as Male Pattern Hair Loss, this is the most common type of diffuse thinning of the hair. Androgenetic alopecia affects both males and females and is caused by a combination of hormones and genetics.

Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL)

In FPHL, there is diffuse thinning of hair on the scalp due to increased hair shedding or a reduction in hair volume, or both.

Chronic Telogen Effluvium

This form of diffuse hair loss affects the entire scalp, and usually affects women of 30 to 60 years of age. There are a variety of causes and treatments.

Scarring Alopecia

There are many forms of scarring alopecia, generally related to a variety of autoimmune disorders. Most forms of scarring alopecia occur as small patches of hair loss that expand with time. Scarring alopecia patches typically look ragged around the edges and may have redness, scaling or blisters.

How does it happen?

Unfortunately, scientists aren’t 100% sure. Like Alopecia Areata, some forms of alopecia are autoimmune disorders where the immune system attacks the hair follicles. Androgenetic and FPHL are caused by declining hormones in the body and are also genetic. Telogen Effluvium is generally caused by environmental stressors on the body such as medications, stress, physical trauma, or restrictive dieting.

Who’s Affected?

Anyone can be affected by alopecia. Gradual or sudden hair loss can be a warning sign that the body is under stress, and you should address it with a medical professional.
