The Causes of Alopecia
We still don’t fully understand the cause of alopecia. We understand that there is a hereditary link for most people, but for others, alopecia shows up out of nowhere. The most common theory for the cause of alopecia rests the blame on viral or bacterial infection since alopecia is an autoimmune disorder. What happens is that the body gets confused and attacks the hair follicles.
But alopecia is also caused by stress and anxiety meaning that any number of triggers can bring about the onset of alopecia. This makes it harder to treat. If we don’t know for sure what causes an affliction, we have to go about “guessing” at solutions.
Types of Alopecia
We also understand that there are a wide range of forms of alopecia out there so it makes sense that it’d be hard to find one alopecia treatment that cures them all. For example, alopecia universalis is a completely lack of all body hair. It makes sense that an alopecia treatment which addressed this problem might be overkill for someone that has alopecia areata (patches of hair loss). Similarly, a hair transplant for hair loss on the scalp isn’t going to be effective for hair loss on other areas of the body and vice versa. Now, take into consideration that there are the following forms of alopecia and it becomes clear why a true alopecia treatment hasn’t arisen to the top until now:
Hair Loss Treatment
Complicating these facts is the problem that alopecia treatment options weren’t even guaranteed to work and if they did, they were extremely temporary and fleeting. Doctors would prescribe all types of alopecia treatment methods to patients including:
• Lotions that didn’t have high effective percentages such as topical corticosteroid
• Painful injections of corticosteroids that didn’t have long-lasting effects
• Using dithranol creams and minoxidil to create temporary, messy solutions for hair loss
• Invasive, painful and expensive hair transplant procedures
