Available Alopecia Treatments
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.
Frontal fibrosing alopecia
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.
