What is Alopecia?

The simple definition is hair loss. However, there are different types of alopecia and each has its own treatment options. If you think you have Alopecia, contact a professional who will be able to help you find the right treatment option for you. Below are some of the different types of Alopecia.

Diffuse alopecia also known as thinning of the scalp hair is common in seniors.
Both women and men are subject to this type of hair loss. It is usually treated with shampoos and medication.

Alopecia Areata is a type of baldness that is temporary.
This type of baldness can occur in young and old. This type of hair loss is usually because of an immune system problem where the body’s defenses attack its own tissue. This also happens in people that have autoimmune diseases such as lupus, thyroid conditions, or anemia.

Androgenic Alopecia is male pattern baldness.
This type can strike you and old alike. This type is genetic and can affect both women and men. It is linked to having an excess of male hormones known as androgens that are located around the hair follicles. In women, this type of hair loss is likely after menopause, because of the lack of female hormones. Most hair loss cases are because of Androgenic Alopecia.
