Alopecia Barbae: How To Treat Beard Bald Spots & Improve Beard Growth

An alopecia barbae treatment is not that dissimilar to an alopecia areata hair loss treatment.

When bald spots or facial hair loss becomes apparent, it may be mistakenly linked to illness. Rest assured, alopecia barbae is not contagious.

Let's first examine alopecia barbae causes before highlighting effective treatments.

  • Autoimmune Issues: Alopecia barbae is associated with autoimmune conditions where the immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles, causing patchy hair loss or bald spots. Same goes for alopecia barbae mustache. 
  • Genetics and Alopecia Barbae: A family history of alopecia or other hair-related conditions can increase the likelihood of developing alopecia barbae.
  • Alopecia Barbae Stress: Emotional, mental, or physical stress can contribute to the onset or increase of alopecia barbae in susceptible individuals.
  • Infection: Severe fungal or bacterial infections on the lower face and mouth can sometimes trigger alopecia barbae.
  • Hormonal Changes and Alopecia Barbae: Fluctuations in hormones, particularly an imbalance in androgens (e.g., sex hormones that bring on puberty), may play a role in the development of alopecia barbae.

Alopecia Areata Barbae Treatments

Proven Este Medical treatments to consider for alopecia barbae beard include: 

Exciplex Light Therapy 

Alopecia areata and alopecia barbae respond well to this highly effective non-surgical light treatment for hair restoration. Exciplex treatments (i.e., hair loss phototherapy) help by stimulating and reactivating the body's immunosuppression process.

Exciplex hair loss treatments are particularly well-suited for individuals with autoimmune disorders like alopecia and skin conditions such as vitiligo and psoriasis.

The exact cause of alopecia barbae is unclear, but it is linked to family genetics, psychological and physical stress, as well having an autoimmune condition puts you at a higher risk. 

Platelet-Rich Micro Injections For Beard Growth

Platelet-rich fibrin and platelet-rich plasma have attracted significant attention in the realm of hair loss due to their effectiveness in addressing various hair loss conditions, including alopecia. Through micro-injections of PRP or PRF into the skin, these treatments actively stimulate and reactivate weakened hair follicles, promoting the growth of thicker and healthier hair. Platelet-rich injections are considered an alopecia barbae natural treatment.
