What is Alopecia?
Hair loss may be a common problem that will be caused by aging, hormonal changes, high-stress levels, or system reactions.
Not all hair loss is permanent, and its treatments may also have a wide range of cosmetic solutions to hair transplantation to medications.
Two types of alopecia:
scarring alopecia and non-scarring alopecia.
Most of those, if they’re non-scarring, are either hormonally triggered, stress-induced, or medication-induced. Scarring alopecia often is inflammatory, or your system is triggering the alopecia.
Most patients experience increased shedding of hairs. Some people will notice a widened part.
Patients facing severe hair loss can have redness, itching, or pain in the scalp.
Hair regrowth depends on the type of alopecia you have. Non-scarring alopecia does grow back. It does take time; hair grows very slowly. It’s like watching grass grow in your yard. If you look out your window every day, you don’t see anything.
The same thing applies to hair growth. It’s very slow, and you’re not going to see it on a day to day basis.
In non-scarring alopecia, you’ll get full regrowth back to your normal baseline. With scarring alopecia, scar replaces those hairs.
In the beginning stage of hair loss, preventing hair loss is best because once the hair follicle is overtaken by scars, chances to grow back hair is low.
Starting treatment early to stop further loss is that the best choice because once those scars overtake a follicle, the hair cannot grow back.
Alopecia areata is a condition that causes hair to fall out in small patches, which can be
unnoticeable. These patches may connect, however, and then become noticeable. The
condition develops when the immune system attacks the hair follicles, resulting in hair
