Frequently Asked Questions
What is Alopecia (Baldness / Hair-Loss)?
Hair loss from the scalp or elsewhere on the body. Types of Alopecia are:
- Male or Female pattern baldness: Permanent hair loss from the scalp, causing baldness.
- Alopecia areata: Alopecia areata occurs when the immune system attacks hair follicles and may be brought on by severe stress.
- Telogen effluvium: A reversible condition in which hair falls out after a stressful experience. The stress pushes large numbers of hair follicles into a resting phase. Within a few months, those hairs can fall out. Types of stress can include surgery, childbirth and serious illness.
- Anagen effluvium: An abnormal loss of hair during the first phase (anagen) of the hair's growth cycle. Anagen effluvium is an abnormal, rapid loss of hair. It can be caused by drugs used for cancer treatment or exposure to certain toxic chemicals.
What are the Symptoms of Alopecia (Baldness / Hair-Loss)?
- Male or Female pattern baldness: While the patterns of baldness for men and women differ, they both have a common genetic cause. With male pattern baldness, hair loss typically occurs on the top and front of the head. With female pattern baldness, thinning occurs on the top and crown of the head. This thinning in women often starts as a widening of the centre hair part that leaves the front hairline unaffected.
- Alopecia areata: Sudden hair loss that starts with one or more circular bald patches that may overlap.
- Telogen effluvium: Hair Loss is the main symptom.
- Anagen effluvium: Hair loss is the main symptom.
Treatment for Alopecia (Baldness / Hair-Loss)
- Male or Female pattern baldness: Medication may prevent further hair loss. In some cases, surgeons can transplant hair or reduce the area of bald skin. Natural-looking wigs and hairpieces can help cover hair loss.
- Alopecia areata: Treatment may address any underlying conditions and includes topical scalp medication.
- Telogen effluvium: In many cases, no treatment is required and the hair often grows back when the stress goes away.
- Anagen effluvium: Growth usually begins quickly after eliminating exposure to the cause. However, textural and colour changes may occur in the new hair.
