Alopecia is defined by the fall or lack of hair. People suffering from alopecia lose much more, and there are certain cases when the hair on different parts of the body begins to drop. Alopecia has several synonyms, such aș baldness.
Hair has three phases: growth, stagnation, and falling.
Excessive hair loss is not necessarily due to alopecia, it can also be caused by stress, some medications, hormonal problems, pregnancy or illness, such as lupus. On the other hand, there are several types of alopecia:
• Scarring-may be linked to scalp disease and is not directly related to a hair disease.
• Diffuse, loss of hair density, which makes it lose little by little.
• Androgenic or common alopecia.
• Universal, creating antibodies against the same follicle.
Although there are treatments to prevent or delay hair loss, not all can deliver an optimal and positive result. You should go to the trichology specialist, who will prescribe you the proper treatment and determine if it is indeed an alopecia or a side effect.
On the other hand, not only men suffer from baldness, women and children can fight with hair loss in an uncontrolled way. In the case of children, it can occur for various reasons, such as ringworm, which is a fungus transmitted by dog or cat; seborrhoeic alopecia and trichotillomania, which is produced by the hair-pulling child. In all cases, it is best to consult a doctor before using remedies without knowing the true reason for losing your hair; Remember that not all hair loss is due to alopecia.
Loss of facial hair cannot be caused only by alopecia areata, there are also cases where drugs cause this fall, certain diseases, chemotherapy, scars, radiation, etc. The implant may be a good option for men who do not have a beard, but in the case of women, it helps by restoring eyebrows or eyelashes, eyebrows being the most demanding because they can represent a complete evolution of image and self-esteem.
