Alopecia

Alopecia is probably the most common hair loss disorder among women and men today, other than genetic thinning. It’s perhaps a word you’ve never heard of prior to being diagnosed, and one you would rather not know. However, with today’s stressful lifestyles, alopecia, either partial or complete, is on the increase.

Alopecia areata

Alopecia areata manifests as circular patches of hair loss from the scalp. Irrespective of treatments (or not), hair will, in most cases, re-grow again given a healthy lifestyle and time. Often, this kind of alopecia will move around the head – so loss and re-growth in one area, followed by hair loss in another area.

Alopecia totalis

Alopecia totalis means a very significant (or complete) hair loss, not only from the scalp but body also. Recovery from this form of alopecia is sometimes possible if careful management of stress levels and life style changes are made.


Are there any cures?

To our knowledge and in spite of frequent claims, we are unaware of any major break- through in the treatment of alopecia, it really is a case of time heals. Talk first to your GP or dermatologist. Do NOT invest in doubtful claims – if there was a product on the market that grew your hair, no one would be bald!


Topically applied treatments:

Very dubious claims are made without medical proof. So true or false? False!

We have found the simplest solution for alopecia is replacing your hair loss with an appropriate wig or hairpiece. This alleviates some of the stress of trying to “hide” hair loss. Unlike some other hair replacement companies, you do not need to shave off your existing hair for our prosthetic wigs or hair integration systems.
