Hair Loss (Alopecia)

If you’re experiencing the effects of hair loss (Alopecia) in Dubai, give Blue Tree Clinics a call as there is a good chance that our dermatology experts will be able to help. Alopecia is the official medical term for hair loss, and there are multiple types, each with their own unique set of symptoms and causes. These types include:

  • Alopecia Areata
  • Scarring Alopecia
  • Anagen Effluvium
  • Telogen Effluvium

While not all forms of Alopecia are treatable, the condition known as Alopecia Areata can be treated and in some cases even reversed.

Causes

The type of Alopecia is determined by the cause. For instance, male and female pattern baldness, which is the most common form of Alopecia, is usually a result of ageing and is perfectly natural. Anagen Effluvium is caused by the death of growth-phase hairs as a result of exposure to radiation, in many cases, the hair will regrow by itself once the exposure is no longer a factor. Telogen Effluvium refers to the early thinning and shedding of hair and is often a result of factors that include:

  • Chronic illness
  • Anaemia
  • Severe emotional disorders
  • Stress
  • Crash diets
  • Drugs

Scarring Alopecia, or Cicatricial Alopecia is caused by a rare group of disorders. As hair is lost, the follicles are irreparably damaged by scar tissue permanently preventing any further growth. Alopecia Areata is the result of an autoimmune condition in which the body’s white blood cells attack the hair follicles. This leads to patchy hair loss as well as diffuse hair thinning that affects all parts of the body including the scalp.

Treatment

The inflammation caused by Alopecia Areata causes hair to be lost, but it doesn’t irreparably damage the hair follicles. This means that should the inflammation be addressed; the follicles will be able to regenerate leading to partial, if not complete, hair regrowth. During your consultation, our consultant dermatologists will take into account your age as well as the degree of hair loss when suggesting an appropriate treatment for hair loss (Alopecia) in Dubai.

For children, we typically suggest the use of a topical steroid lotion. Whereas for adults, a steroid is injected directly into the affected areas. Both of these treatments have the effect of reducing inflammation. In the case of extensive hair loss (Alopecia) in Dubai, a procedure known as Topical Immunotherapy can also be used.
