Alopecia Areata Treatment

Alopecia is loss of hair especially from the head. However, alopecia is a very general term; there are many types of alopecia, and their symptoms and treatments vary greatly. Certain kinds of alopecia are best treated with medication while other can be treated with a hair transplant. Here is a list of common types of alopecia hair transplant in Islamabad and their suitable treatment.

Androgenic Alopecia:

Pattern male baldness is the most prevalent type of alopecia. This hair loss is caused by genetic factors; in other words, it is written in the genes of most men to lose hair at a specific age. Hair transplant is the best treatment for androgenic alopecia. Fortunately, there are certain areas of our head that are resistant to androgenic alopecia. A hair transplant harvests hair follicles form these areas and plants them into the affected area.

Alopecia Areata:

This alopecia is causes by an autoimmune disease. Our immune system, which is designed to attack harmful foreign objects, mistakenly attacks and destroys hair follicles. Usually, it appears in the form of bald patches on the head. However, it may affect all areas of the head in rare cases. The best treatment of this alopecia is medication. We have to stop the immune system from attacking healthy body cells.

A hair transplant for alopecia areata may be appropriate in certain situations. Even if we treat immune system, there is a less chance of regrowth of lost hair. In this scenario, a hair transplant can be of great help. However, if we try to transplant hair without treating the immune system first, there is a high risk of losing our transplanted hair.

Traction Alopecia:

Many hairstyles like ponytails, pigtails, and braids exert continuous traction on our hair. This continuous traction causes hair follicles to die out permanently. In addition to these hairstyles, trichotillomania (compulsive pulling of hair) may cause traction alopecia. A hair transplant is an ideal treatment for traction alopecia in both cases.

Scarring Alopecia:

According to an estimate, 3% of hair loss patients suffer from scarring alopecia. In this condition, the scalp is gradually converted into scar tissue, and all hair follicle in this area vanish. This also causes bald patches to appear; however, these patches are more ragged than the patches caused by alopecia areata. The first line of defense is medication. Once the condition has been controlled, hair transplant can be used to transplant hair on the affected area.
