Alopecia areata can happen to anyone, regardless of age, gender, or any other limiting factor. It can be transient or permanent, affects both men and women, and there are different causes, types, and degrees. According to the data of the American Academy of Dermatology (DDA), more than two billion people in the world suffer from total or partial hair loss. And of this total, there are more than 100 million females.
According to the doctor, trichologist and dermatologist Lívia Maria Camargo, it is normal for a person to lose 50 to 100 hairs per day, due to the constant capillary renewal process. However, if this cycle is interrupted or if the hair follicles are damaged, the hair can begin to fall out faster rather than regrow, causing symptoms such as hair thinning or completely empty areas.
“In alopecia areata, re-extension (ie the birth of hair) occurs in most cases without any treatment,” he explains.
Also according to the doctor, sometimes the hair can be born white and then go back to its normal color (or remain white); Sometimes she is born in some areas and in others she is not. Each patient should be evaluated and followed up by a physician.
Lesions may or may not appear. It is essential that the patient always be alert and seek medical help whenever a failure is noticed.
Alopecia areata has no cure and its treatment depends on the severity of the hair loss. Although there is no hair in the affected area, the hair follicles are not damaged and therefore it is possible to reverse the condition through treatment. It is done by injections and lotions, which are placed on the scalp the head to stimulate hair growth, and oral medications can also be taken in some cases. It is very important that the treatment is carried out under the guidance of a physician followed by psychological support for that patient.” Livia Maria.
