Hair loss or hair fall is one of the most common and prevalent problems among humans. Almost every person has faced this problem at a certain age in his life. It is quite natural to lose hair strands because hairs grow in three phases i.e. anagen, catagen, and telogen. When hair is in the anagen phase it grows actively. In the catagen phase, it neither grows nor falls off. However, in the telogen phase, the hair rests and falls off. If you are losing almost 100 hair strands a day, it is quite normal but if the hair fall exceeds this limit, you might be suffering from Alopecia Areata.
However, it is now possible to get rid of this hair loss condition. Alopecia treatment in Dubai has been introduced to fight bald spots and dramatic hair thinning.

What is Alopecia Areata?
Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disorder that occurs when your immune system attacks the hair follicles and ceases their growth. As a result, the hairs shrink and fall out in clumps leading to round and hairless patches all over the scalp. In some cases, hair may regrow without treatment. Alopecia totalis is a more severe form, involving complete loss of scalp hair, and is not a guaranteed progression of alopecia areata.
Alopecia areata can occur in both men and women but men are more susceptible to hair thinning as compared to women. There are two main causes of this disease i.e. stress and genetics. If it runs in your family, you are more likely to get affected.

How to treat Alopecia Areata?
There are various techniques to treat hair loss problems especially alopecia areata. But Hair transplant may not be suitable for Alopecia Areata due to the nature of the condition. Mentioned below are some effective alopecia treatments that can stimulate the growth of your hair and save you from complete baldness.
Topical Minoxidil: A minoxidil solution is applied to the scalp and gently rubbed twice a day. Consequently, the hair growth is stimulated and you will see noticeable results within 2-3 months. Minoxidil is primarily used for treating male pattern baldness and its effectiveness in Alopecia Areata varies.
Laser Hair Loss Therapy: It is a non-surgical, safe, and may be effective treatment for hair loss. In this treatment, low-level laser light is used to stimulate hair growth.
Mesotherapy: In this technique, some minerals and vitamins in tiny quantities are injected into the scalp. These minerals include zinc, biotin, folic acid, and vitamin B. They stimulate blood circulation, help the scalp to repair itself, and nourish the hair follicles. This may help reduce hair loss.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP): It is a rejuvenation therapy that utilizes the regenerative power of your blood. The platelets in your blood are rich in growth factors that are injected into the scalp at the targeted areas. It accelerates cell regeneration, potentially stimulating hair growth. PRP therapy requires multiple sessions.
Topical Immunotherapy: It is also an effective alopecia treatment in Dubai. You can opt for it if you are suffering from severe hair loss. In this technique, a special chemical substance is applied to the scalp once in several weeks. This substance causes minor irritation and a controlled allergic reaction in the scalp tissues, potentially stimulating hair growth.
