alopecia treatment carrollton txIf you’ve ever been told by a stylist or barber that you have areas of hair loss on your scalp, you may have a disease called alopecia areata and you should consider alopecia treatment Carrollton TX. But before you seek out treatments, you should understand more about the disease.

Alopecia Treatment Carrollton TX: What is Alopecia?

According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, alopecia areata is considered an autoimmune disease in which the immune system, which normally protects the body from invasion by viruses and bacteria, mistakenly attacks hair follicles. This can lead to hair loss on the scalp, face or body. In most cases, hair will fall out in round patches, usually about the size of a quarter. While some people only have small amounts of hair loss, others have more extensive hair loss. Complete hair loss, though, is uncommon.

Female Hair Loss Treatment Carrollton TX: What Causes Alopecia

In alopecia areata, white blood cells attack cells growing in hair follicles, which causes the follicles to shrink and slow down the production of hair. Researchers don’t know why this happens to certain people, but it’s thought that a combination of genes predisposes them to the disease, and some environmental factor or an illness or even stress can trigger it.

Hair Growth Remedies Carrollton TX: Alopecia And Hair Regrowth

The disease runs a different course in almost everyone who has it. Some people lose a few patches of hair, then the hair regrows and the condition never recurs. Other people go through a cycle of losing and regrowing hair throughout their entire lives, and for some the hair loss is total and seemingly permanent. But, because the stem cells that supply the follicles with new cells aren’t damaged by alopecia, there’s always the possibility of hair growth, no matter the extent of the disease.

Female Hair Loss Treatment Carrollton TX: Alopecia Treatment Options

Though there is no cure for the underlying disease of alopecia areata, there are some treatments available that can help to alleviate the symptoms of the disease. According to the National Alopecia Areata Foundation, these treatments include corticosteroid injections, topical minoxidil and anthralin cream. These are mostly effective when hair loss is 50% or less. For hair loss greater than 50%, treatments like oral corticosteroids and total immunotherapy are available, but are generally less successful.

Hair Growth Remedies Carrollton TX: Alopecia Research

Researchers are working hard to find new ways to treat alopecia, from conducting in-depth studies of hair follicle development to studying the biology of hair follicle stem cells to find out why the disease is triggered to finding the genes responsible for the disease. Although there is currently no cure on the horizon, the information scientists are gathering will lead to a better understanding of the disease and better control of the symptoms.
