What is Alopecia Areata? How is it treated?

The high pace of life, the stress of city life and our vital responsibilities cause the stress level in our body to increase from time to time. This increase in stress can cause many physical and mental health problems. It is known that many people who are exposed to the busy city life today receive more professional support day by day. Our stance in the face of events and situations, the reactions of our psychology and body differ from person to person. The reason for this difference may be genetic factors as well as our physical and mental health. For example, let’s consider Alopecia Areata disease, which is one of the health problems we frequently encounter today.

What is Alopecia Areata?

Ringworm is a contagious autoimmune disease. It occurs locally, but after frequent contact with the diseased area, it can spread throughout the body, moreover, it can be transmitted from person to person or even from animal to person. Ringworm, a type of fungal disease, occurs when the white blood cells in the body attack the immune system. Today, it is commonly thought to occur with the effect of stress and genetic factors. However, in the light of recent research, the exact cause of alopecia is still unknown. In the light of the current data, we can only say that alopecia is a common and contagious disease.

How is Alopecia Areata Diagnosed?

The diagnosis of ringworm disease can often be made by patients without even going to the doctor. When it comes to ringworm disease, the symptoms appear quite clearly in the person’s body. Alopecia disease, which affects the hair follicles, causes hair loss in the area of the disease and hair loss for a long time. Since it is a locally seen disease, those who suffer from this disease may experience regional shedding in their hair. In addition to hair, ringworm disease can also be seen in beards, moustaches and even eyebrows.

Local hair loss seen in alopecia can occur suddenly in a few days, or they can manifest themselves over a period of several weeks. These losses usually occur in the size of an average coin.

Alopecia Areata disease is a health problem that should be followed accurately and meticulously. As we mentioned above, since it is a contagious disease, it can spread to beards, eyelashes and eyebrows if it is not followed carefully and the necessary care is not taken. However, there are comfortable and reliable treatments for alopecia. In some cases, if we are talking about a very minimal hair loss and the disease has not spread, even spontaneous recovery can be seen. In such cases, patients often do not see the need to consult a specialist. However, it should not be forgotten that itching and burning may occur in the hair in the first place, whether it is self-healing or under the control of a specialist. This is a natural process. In addition to this situation, when the disease regresses in the area where the hair loss is experienced, the hair will start to grow again. However, it should be known that these hairs will be non-pigmented, that is, white in the first place. If the disease has regressed and completely healed when the white hair is cut after the white hair starts to grow, which indicates that the hair regrowth has been healed, then the new hair will be in the person’s own natural hair colour.

How Is Hair Loss Treated?

Treatment methods in Alopecia Areata disease vary according to the age, medical history and course of the disease. Although the treatment processes are comfortable and reliable, personalized treatment protocols are applied depending on the allergic history of the person and the deformation caused by the disease. The treatment of ringworm disease, which is a type of fungal disease, can often be done with oral medications and ointments and gels applied to the area where alopecia disease is seen. Depending on the condition of the disease, local injections can also be applied in treatment methods.

Alopecia treatments are treatments that give effective results when done with an expert and correct team. However, in some cases, the desired results may not be obtained from alopecia treatments due to the medical history or genetic predisposition of the patients. In such cases, other hair treatments appear as ideal methods to remove the deformations caused by the alopecia problem. For example, hair simulation is one of these methods. Hair simulation is a good option if the desired results are not obtained in hair removal treatments, if the area in question is very minimal, and if there is sparseness rather than complete shedding. Hair simulation, unlike hair transplantation, is a pigmentation process applied to the scalp. Thanks to the hair simulation, the light color on the scalp is removed and the existing hair looks much thicker. It will be a very comfortable and reliable operation. In the n hair simulation process, the return to social life is short.

If, after alopecia, the disease is treated, but there is not enough hair in the area where shedding occurs during the disease, which may vary depending on genetic factors, then hair transplantation can be considered. Especially in severe alopecia problems where complete shedding is experienced, after the healing of the disease, if there is no complete hair growth in the deformed area, hair transplantation may be preferred. Hair transplantation procedures are reliable and comfortable procedures that offer more than one transplantation technique. Hair transplantation procedures, which enable us to obtain high patient satisfaction and satisfactory results after the personalized planning, are preferred more and more frequently every day due to the natural appearance it offers and the lush hair. A hair transplant protocol is determined by considering the patient’s medical history in line with the deformation experienced after the alopecia problem. In the technique to be used, the wishes of the patient, the current state of the hair and the characteristics of the area affected by alopecia play an important role. The intervention that the person’s hair needs is planned and the hair transplantation process takes place. In such cases, hair transplantation procedures with Choi pen, or in other words, with an implanter, which we call FUE, Sapphire FUE or DHI technique, are preferred. Today, the FUT technique, which is being used more and more every day, is not preferred for the appearance of hair after a haircut.

Thanks to the medical technologies and treatments that are developing day by day, nowadays, hair removal treatments are much more comfortable and effective results are obtained.
