The autoimmune disease of Alopecia Areata is characterized by the loss of some or all of the hair, most commonly from the scalp.
Modern protocols recommend applying Autologous Hair Mesotherapy once a month for 4-8 sessions, depending on the problem, and then maintaining the result according to the doctor's instructions. The results are completely natural and there are no side effects, provided the treatment is carried out by a qualified doctor.
In selected cases of localized Alopecia Areata with stability in the progression of hair loss for more than one year, hair loss can be treated with the FUE Hair Transplantation method. This method is applied exclusively by the specialized medical staff of Advanced Hair Clinics, member of the Cosmetic Derma Medicine Medical Group, and is completed gradually, 10-12 months later, with new hair growth.
The autoimmune etiology of Alopecia Areata is supported by its coexistence with other autoimmune diseases such as vitiligo, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Adison's disease, autoimmune polyendocrine syndromes, atopic dermatitis, Down's syndrome. There are, of course, additional factors that contribute to its appearance, such as:
The classification of Alopecia Areata is as follows:
Alopecia totalis and Alopecia universalis are rare, accounting for 1-2% of all forms of Alopecia Areata.
The diagnosis of Alopecia Areata is mainly clinical. Phototrichorizogram also helps by showing dystrophic anagen hairs and increased telogen hairs. Trichoscopy and biopsy also confirm the diagnosis of alopecia areata as the latter shows lymphocytic infiltration and hair degeneration.
Unfortunately, the progression of alopecia areata cannot be predicted. When it occurs after puberty, there is usually a recurrence in 80% of cases. Poor prognosis is usually associated with total gyroid alopecia occurring before puberty, frequent recurrences of gyroid alopecia, ophiasis and the coexistence of nail lesions.
Cosmetic Derma Medicine Medical Group is the largest and most specialized medical group in the field of Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, with 14 clinics in Greece and Cyprus.
A typical example of the treatment of Alopecia Areata is the case of two twins who at a very young age developed Alopecia Areata with almost total hair loss.
