Alopecia Areata

Alopecia Areata

What is it and How to Treat It?

Alopecia Areata, an autoimmune disorder, is often confused with hereditary hair loss or Androgenetic alopecia. The condition can result in unpredictable loss of hair, and its treatment has not yet been found out by modern medical professionals as yet. The condition is commoner than you might think. It can affect about 6.5 million people or 2 percent of Americans. Alopecia Areata usually arises before 30 years of age, usually occurs in the later stage of life, and cannot be fixed with hair transplant in Turkey. Find out about the best ways to treat this condition.

Alopecia Areata can result in unpredictable loss of hair.


It is useful for suppressing the immune system and prevents the destruction of the hair follicles due to the white blood cells. Using corticosteroids allows the growth of follicles, and helps avoid unnecessary and premature loss of hair. However, a strong immunity helps the body fight ailments and suppressing the action of the immune system can make the body vulnerable to various illnesses. SHIFT Hair Transplant surgeons usually advise patients against continued use of corticosteroids for the treatment of Alopecia Areata.

Topical creams

You may also try the topical application of minoxidil on your scalp if you are suffering from Alopecia Areata. This topical cream is available for sale under the brand name Rogaine. You have to apply it for two times daily into the balding spots on your scalp. It makes the hair follicles wider and increases the density of the treated region. It has to be applied every day to get continued benefits. Stopping its usage can instantly start hair loss again. However, this is not a safe treatment technique either as it gives rise to a few side effects such as chest pains and itchiness. Hair transplant in Turkey is safer, but not effective for Alopecia Areata.

Stress reduction

This is another method and is regarded as much safer than the others. Although clinical studies are yet to offer conclusive evidence on how stress is related to this disorder or can serve as a contributory factor, at least some cases of baldness are supposed to arise due to stress. Regular meditation, yoga practices, reducing the intake of high sugar or salty foods and maintaining a better balance of professional and personal lives are regarded as some of the best ways to reduce stress. As experts associated with SHIFT Hair Transplant recommend, a holistic change in lifestyle is necessary to avoid Alopecia Areata due to stress.
