Alopecia simply means hair loss. Alopecia does not always mean having a huge amount of hair loss. Alopecia can cause just partial loss of hair such as a pattern of hair loss whether it be complete baldness (alopecia Totalis), patchy bald spots, thinning or hair loss confined to certain areas.
Male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia) is a common form of alopecia in adult males. It is most commonly noticed by hair loss over the top and front of the head and by the healthy condition of the scalp.
Fungal infections of the scalp can lead to patching hair loss on the head.
Systemic diseases such as thyroid disorders can alter the skin of the scalp affecting hair growth. Having too much thyroid hormone can cause hair to become more narrow and frail.
This treatment produces micro-injuries to the skin which encourages and harnesses the power of the body's natural ability to re-grow and repair itself. This helps with alopecia and hair-loss by stimulating the hair to regrow and repair itself. Click here to find out more about Dermapen.
PRP OR THE VAMPIRE FACIAL TREATMENT
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment is great for hair loss as the blood holds plasma which contains white blood cells and platelets that are rich in growth factors. This helps to stimulate the activity of the hair follicles and promote new hair to grow. Click here to find out more about PRP.
