WHAT IS ALOPECIA AREATA HAIR LOSS? DFW, TX

Alopecia areata hair loss is a common autoimmune skin disease that causes hair to fall out. Nu Hair in Dallas-Fort Worth staff recognizes that hair loss may affect how you feel. You are not alone if you have alopecia areata hair loss or baldness. Marvin Friedman is a hair restoration specialist in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas says that men, women and even children may experience hair loss alopecia at any time in their lives. The body’s immune system attacks the healthy hair follicles, causing them to become smaller and drastically slow down production to the point that hair growth stops. DFW hair restoration specialist Marvin Friedman says that alopecia areata affects more than 6.8 million people in the U.S. and 147 million people worldwide.

  • Alopecia is a not life-threatening hair loss medical condition which causes hair to fall out in clumps and causes bald spots
  • The disease cause hair to fall from the scalp, face and other areas of the body
  • The condition often progresses to complete hair loss of body hair. 
  • Some lose their hair with bald spots in specific areas and others with thinning hair all over.
  • It often first appears during childhood 
  • With alopecia areata, hair follicles remain alive, and hair can regrow at any time

What causes alopecia areata?

  • Most doctors believe that the body's autoimmune system attacks its hair follicles, causing hair loss
  • The immune system of the body mistakenly stops hair growth for unknown reasons
  • Alopecia areata and thyroid disease are frequently associated.
  • Alopecia areata may show up due to genetics where both parents must contribute some specific genes for a child to develop it. 
  • Hair re-growth usually is seen within six months, but if there is no hair growth within a year, then it is unlikely that any hair re-growth will ever come back.

The various alopecia conditions are:  

  • Alopecia Areata - The most common form, with coin-sized hairless patches on the scalp or other areas of the body
  • Alopecia Totalis - Alopecia totalis is a total hair loss of the scalp.

‎Treatments for alopecia areata - DFW, TX

Is there a cure for alopecia areata hair loss? Dallas-Fort Worth hair restoration specialist reports that presently, there is no hair loss medical cure for alopecia areata that is sure to grow your hair back. Note that your hair may regrow naturally after this hair loss medical condition is over. Drug treatments for alopecia areata depend upon a person's age and the extent of one's hair loss. One therapy for alopecia involves multiple injections of the steroid hormone, Cortisone. The steroid is directly injected into the bald spots, repeated once a month. Another treatment uses cortico-steroids topically on the scalp. However, the effect of steroids use has not been scientifically proven as an effective hair loss treatment for alopecia. Currently, hair re-growth drugs for alopecia areata are actively researched.
