What is Alopecia?
Alopecia is defined as a hair loss disease that affects men, women and children. This disease comes often when the person doesn’t expect it with no initial symptoms. There is no cure for Alopecia as of yet.
No one truly knows the cause but we do know it is an autoimmune disorder that causes the body to attack the hair follicles, there is also a close relation to stress and anxiety disorder as causing Alopecia. Sometimes taking too much medication or a bacterial infection can also be linked to Alopecia.
Alopecia affects approximately 1.7 percent of the population, Alopecia is hereditary, as we have seen both father/son or mother/daughter come in for our procedure together.
