Alopecia is an autoimmune condition that causes temporary or permanent hair loss. This condition can happen anywhere on the body, but is most concerning when it attacks your scalp, as balding and patchy hair loss on the head is more difficult to deal with. For instance, alopecia on the scalp can start as small round patches of missing hair, which can appear in a matter of weeks, and grow larger and more visible if not treated.
Alopecia exists in many different forms: alopecia areata, androgenic alopecia, traction alopecia, or frontal fibrosing alopecia. An Este Medical hair loss consultation will determine which type of alopecia you are experiencing and the best hair loss treatment personalised to you.

The good news is, even though alopecia causes hair loss, it doesn’t destroy the hair follicles — that means hair follicles have the ability to regrow hair under the right clinical conditions, with the right treatments. Este Medical Group has several effective treatments available for your type of alopecia.
Treatments and types of Alopecia include:
Hair loss may occur suddenly and often begins with one or more bald patches that may overlap (e.g., patchy hair loss). This condition causes cells in your immune system to surround and attack your hair follicles. Treatment may include: immunosuppressant medication, steroid creams, tablets, or injections such as Este’s mesotherapy for hair loss, as well Este Medical laser hair growth therapy and Este Exciplex light therapy for alopecia.
Also known as male/female pattern hair loss. This type of alopecia condition tends to target the top and front of the scalp. It is a hereditary condition that can also be influenced by hormone levels and ageing. Treatment may include: Minoxidil, PRP mesotherapy, Este Exciplex light therapy, Este Medical laser hair regrowth therapy, and/or a FUE hair transplant.
This type of hair loss is often caused by repeated trauma to hair follicles, or from pulling hair into hairstyles that put tension on the roots. When hair is pulled from the roots to make a hairstyle it can cause permanent damage (e.g., extensions, high ponytails, braids, cornrows). As hair loss may occur around the hairline and temples an Este DHI hair transplantation may be the most appropriate treatment.
This is a rare type of alopecia that causes hair to recede at the front and sides of the head and may also affect the eyebrows. This type of extreme alopecia is most commonly experienced by postmenopausal women, and is not typical for younger females or males. Treatments may include: topical steroids, antibiotics or hormones, Exciplex light therapy, laser hair regrowth therapy, and/or a hair transplant. Este Medical Group has several successful hair loss treatments available to effectively address your alopecia. Book a consultation to talk about your expectations and goals.
There are different types of alopecia and so this condition can be permanent for some and temporary for others. Stress and hormone-related alopecia is often temporary and may be treated by addressing the cause of the problem.
If your alopecia is hereditary, it’s not possible to prevent it. However, at Este Medical, we offer a range of innovative treatments that can help to alleviate this condition. It’s also advisable to avoid hairstyles that place a strain on your scalp such as tight ponytails and buns.
If you want to learn more about medication for this condition, we strongly recommend you speak to your GP.
