Alopecia Areata. Jason’s Story.

Posted by Gary Heron, on August 28th, 2007, under HAIR LOSS [ PHOTOS ] TREATED, TRICHOLOGIST

The Facts: Alopecia Areata is an extremely common condition and will affect 1% to 2% of the population at some point in their lives. Most sufferers are children and young adults (below 40 years old), though it can affect people of all ages. The hair loss is sudden and manifests itself in small, smooth-skinned patches that are likely to gradually widen with time. It can also affect the sufferer’s nails, giving them a pitted, ridged or brittle appearance. The exact cause is still unknown, although current theories include an auto-immune disease, stress or suggest a genetic basis.

The Results: After just 6 months.

Is It True That Male Pattern Baldness Runs In Families?

Posted by Gary Heron, on August 28th, 2007, under MALE HAIR LOSS, TRICHOTALK

Question: Is It True That Male Pattern Baldness Runs In Families?

Answer: Yes. If your grandfather, father or brothers went bald early, the chances are that you will too. If your maternal grandfather went bald, that’s probably a better indicator that you will too than if your father’s father lost his hair. Mother’s side has the strongest influence with MPB.

NHS Hair Loss Treatments.

Posted by Gary Heron, on August 24th, 2007, under TRICHOLOGIST, TRICHOTALK

Question: Are hair loss treatments available on the NHS?

Answer: Unfortunately the simple answer is no. All of the FDA approved regrowth stimulants are either chargeable by private prescription through a private clinic or practice, as the problem of hair loss is still regarded as a cosmetic problem by the Government funded NHS. Some less effective stimulants are available over the counter. If in doubt seek advice from one of our trichologists.
