Alopecia Areata: What are your options

Alopecia Areata What are your options

Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss in the form of patches. In this condition, your immune system tends to attack your own body cells. If you are suffering from a similar type of hair loss and wondering to know about the best treatments options, this blog is for you.

Signs of Alopecia Areata

In Alopecia Areata, hair starts to fall off leading to form a round shaped bald patch on the head. If not cured, the number of patches increases with time and take the form of complete baldness.

Treatment Options

Alopecia Areata is a hormonal imbalance that behaves differently in every other individual. Hair experts at Hair Transplant Dubai clinic suggest consulting a specialist before undergoing any of the treatments for your hair loss. Here are some popular treatments for Alopecia Areata.


Whenever you are diagnosed with mild Alopecia Areata, the specialist will prescribe you some medications such as corticosteroid for your condition. These are either topical ointments or they are injected directly into the scalp. These play a pivotal role in correcting your immune system, ultimately putting an end to hair loss.


Minoxidil is another solution to Alopecia Areata that helps to correct the immune system. If applied regularly, it provides significant results.

These medications are helpful in correcting your immune system but these are not good enough to restore the hair that you have lost. Most hair experts suggest to use them as an initiatory treatment and when the hair loss gets stopped, you can undergo a proper hair restoration procedure such as hair transplant.

PRP for Alopecia Areata

PRP (platelet rich plasma) is a revolutionary addition to the non-surgical hair loss treatments. It is a serum obtained from your own blood which has higher growth elements.

In this procedure, a sample of blood is collected from your body and is inserted into a centrifuge. The centrifuge separates the PRP from the sample of the blood. The PRP is then injected into the scalp areas where the Alopecia Areata occurs. The growth factors stimulate the collagen and elastin production in the scalp, ultimately enhance hair growth.

Surgical treatment

Initially, some medications and non-surgical treatments are used to correct the behavior of your autoimmune system. Once your hair fall is stopped, you are left with major bald patches that can only be filled with a hair transplant.

Hair transplant for Alopecia Areata only works if

  • You have sufficient amount of potential donor hairs available.
  • Crown of your scalp is not affected
  • Your hair loss is stopped
