Is Alopecia Areata Curable?

An autoimmune disorder that can lead to unpredictable hair loss, *Alopecia Areata is a skin condition that contributes to about 0.7% of all dermatology cases in India. People suffering from this skin condition get oval or circular patchy bald marks on the scalp, especially in the posterior occipital and temporal margins.

This condition is primarily reported in teenagers or people approaching twenty five years of age. Since this condition can severely impact an individual’s looks, it is advisable to visit an aesthetic hair care and skin care clinic on noticing early signs of this condition, as it is very much manageable. Dr. Paul’s Advanced Hair & Skin Solutions Clinics specializes in the treatment of Alopecia Areata and have successfully treated many patients. With the help of their Fusion Homeopathic Treatment for Alopecia Areata, they have successfully minimized the impact and recurrence of the condition in many individuals. At Dr. Paul’s Advanced Hair & Skin Solutions Clinics, experts follow a very systematic approach to managing and treating this skin condition and carry out various treatment procedures only after conducting a thorough medical examination of the patient.

Before understanding the preventive and management procedures for this condition, let us first try to understand the different kinds of Alopecia.

Androgenic Alopecia:

Also commonly referred to as pattern baldness, this condition can affect both men and women. In this condition, the hair loss happens in a particular pattern and mostly begins above the temples. Since this condition is mostly reported in men, it is also referred to as male-pattern baldness.

Telogen Effluvium:

In this condition, due to certain internal disorders, the hair roots are forcefully pushed into telogen or the resting phase of the body’s hair growth cycle. This condition can be acute or chronic, depending upon the amount of stress the body has been subjected to.

Traction Alopecia:

Incorrect tying of the hair by tightly pulling it back leads to this condition. This condition can be fully reversed if the individual is sensitized about the effects early on and remedial measures are taken by tying the hair loosely.

Cicatricial Alopecia:

This is a very rare condition but can be quite alarming as the hair loss in this case is permanent. Moreover, in this condition, the hair follicles are gradually replaced by scar tissue which looks quite ugly.

Hair Problems & Hair Fall Treatment During Covid 19 Pandemic

Alopecia, or hair loss, is a condition that occurs when the body’s cycle of hair production is disrupted. It’s possible to lose hair anywhere over the body, although it seems to happen on the crown the most frequently. Hair on the scalp grows, rests, sheds, and regrows in a cyclical pattern, with an average of 100,000 hairs.

During a hair growth cycle, there are three distinct stages. When hair is in its anagen phase, it grows at a faster rate. This stage could endure for a long time. This phase occurs when the hair follicle, which is located beneath the skin, is no longer able to develop new hair. It takes roughly 10 days for the catagen phase to complete.

Two to three months later, the hair follicle rests, and the hair falls out. During the growth of a new hair, the anagen phase begins. The average person sheds between 50 and 100 hairs a day as part of this normal process.

Symptoms such as thinning hair, receding hairlines, and hair falling out in patches can occur if the hair follicle is damaged or disrupted throughout this cycle. Today nearly everyone is suffering from hair problems. Thinning of hair, baldness, and early graying are some of the problems to be mentioned. Hair loss (alopecia) can affect your scalp or your entire body. It can result from heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions, or aging.

Painless Hair Transplant At Dr Paul’s

Male baldness is the most prevalent type of hair loss that can be improved by hair transplantation, but it’s not the only type of baldness that can be alleviated. Using hair follicles from the back or sides of the scalp, the surgeon implants them in the bald spots.. The surgeon implants the hair follicles in a way that ensures enough blood flow during the healing phase. For a successful hair transplant in Kolkata, the procedure may take many hours.

A bald scalp may necessitate a few treatments before it is completely covered. Transplanted follicles will produce hair, and the hair will grow. Prior to the surgery, a sedative is administered through a computerized syringe called Dentapen to ensure painless injection. This cutting-edge device, now in use at Dr Paul’s, makes injections comfortable by using a microprocessor to control the extremely low speed and pressure of local anesthetic for a completely pain-free injection.

While these new technologies have made the transplant procedure itself comfortable, it also allows for a faster and easier recovery for patients. Because there are no staples or stitches with today’s advanced FUE transplant harvest techniques, there is no tension on the skin, and most patients can resume regular activities immediately and get back in the gym within just a few days following a hair transplant.
