Q&A: Can Alopecia Be Successfully Treated?


Alopecia Can Be Distressing But Some Forms Can Be Treated & There Are Support GroupsName: A Adams

Question: I have Alopecia Universalis and it will be 12 years at the end of August. Have you any positive results for people with alopecia?

Answer: There are various forms of Alopecia, which is a broad term that covers all hair loss conditions. There are three types of Alopecia that affect the hair growth cycle:

Androgenetic Alopecia (Male Pattern Baldness & Female Pattern Hair Loss)
Telogen Effluvium (Result of medications, hormones, stress, diet)
Alopecia Areata (autoimmune condition that may lead to Alopecia Universalis)

With regard to your question, I believe it is the last form you are referring to; we have successfully treated Alopecia Areata using hair loss treatments supplemented with hair growth boosters. The progress our clients have made can be seen by looking at our success story below. 

Alopecia Universalis is the most severe form of Alopecia and leads to total loss of body and scalp hair, including eyebrows and eyelashes.

At present, we are unable to offer treatment for this form of Alopecia. However, please be aware that some people with this condition will regain their body and scalp hair. For many people it is an acute, short-term condition, and hair may re-grow, even for those with 100% body and scalp hair loss. However, when and to what extent it re-grows is not something we know yet.

For others it is a permanent condition, and there are support groups (some below) who can help as this is a huge challenge for an individual to face and overcome. Science continues to research this medical condition and the future may hold a cure-all for Alopecia Universalis.
