What is Alopecia?

Alopecia is a hair loss condition, and is a terminology that refers to different forms of hair loss, both scarring and non-scarring ones.

Alopecia areata is a non-scarring skin disease, as the hair follicle bulb is intact, and thus symptoms present an abnormal pathophysiology where localised areas of hair loss are usually presented as patches.

 

What causes alopecia varies widely. The causes range from inflammatory stress responses, autoimmune response, environment, genetics, diet and even your lifestyle.  There is no definite answer as researchers continue to look for the causes, although there is a large focus on developing new ways to cope and treat it.

However, findings have been slow and visible conditions cause emotional distress and affect personal confidence as well as social and work-life balance. Alopecia is treated as a serious condition, in which patients might themselves at a risk of depression, anxiety disorders and social phobias.

This causes the need for serious consideration on effectively treating these type of conditions, such as the male and female baldness. The London Facial Care is more than happy to take you on board with our hair regrowth treatments and natural hair regrowth techniques!
