ALOPECIA AREATA TREATMENT DALLAS, TX

Is there a cure for alopecia areata hair loss?

Dallas, TX hair restoration specialist, Marvin Friedman, understands that this can be extremely catastrophic to see rapid hair falling out. He explains that  there is no alopecia areata treatment that cures the disease. Doctors try several medications approved for promoting hair growth, but none cure the disease. The Dallas, TX hair replacement expert advice is to consult your doctor about the best option for you.

What are the options in alopecia areata treatment?

  • It is helpful to protect the exposed skin; head, ears and face from damaging sun exposure.
  • Oral and injectable medications
  • Corticosteroids
  • Topical ointments containing steroids
  • Hair growth medications like Rogaine
  • Medical wigs & hairpieces

Treatments for Alopecia Areata 

Steroids, Corticosteroids, anti-inflammatory drugs are often used in the treatment of various autoimmune diseases, including alopecia areata. Corticosteroids may be given as injections of steroids directly into the patches on the scalp or the effected area. It takes about 4 weeks for new hair growth to become visible, if there is any growth. Side effects of injections may be mild swelling, changes in pigmentation, or small indentations in the skin that go away when injections are stopped. Injections usually have to be repeated monthly. Large areas cannot be treated, because the discomfort and the amount of medicine become too great, with risk of side affects of hypertension and cataracts may occur.
 
Corticosteroids taken by mouth may be used in more extensive alopecia areata. But because of the risk of side effects of oral corticosteroids, such as hypertension and cataracts, they are used only occasionally for alopecia areata and for shorter periods of time.
 
Ointments containing steroids rubbed directly onto the affected area are preferred for children. However, corticosteroid creams are less effective than injections; they work best when combined with other topical treatments, such as minoxidil.
 
Topical minoxidil is FDA-approved for treating male and female pattern hair loss. It is used as alopecia areata treatment to promote hair growth. It is applied twice daily and may be used on the scalp, brow, and beard areas. New hair growth may appear within three months after a daily use of the solution.

Anthralin is an approved treatment for psoriasis and is also commonly used to treat alopecia areata. Anthralin is applied for 20 to 60 minutes to avoid skin irritation. Anthralin or Sulfasalazine are often used in combination with other treatments, such as corticosteroid injections or minoxidil.
