Alopecia

Alopecia is a blanket medical term, which describes various hair loss conditions. Male and female pattern baldness, alopecia areata, and Anagen effluvium are just some examples of types of alopecia. Not all types of alopecia are treatable without the use of implants. However, medical conditions such as alopecia areata can be effectively treated and the condition reversed. Kayal Dermatology provides a range of treatments for alopecia areata, which can help reverse the condition. Treatments have a high rate of success for most patients, resulting in hair regrowth in the affected areas.

Alopecia Causes & Symptoms

The causes of alopecia differ, depending on the specific condition. While male pattern baldness is hereditary, other types of alopecia are caused by autoimmune disease modified by genetic factors, or aggravated by emotional factors such as stress. Symptoms present in a number of ways, including a receding hairline, thinning hair, patchy baldness or localized baldness.
