hair-loss-treatment-dht-sensorAnthony and his wife recently found out she had Alopecia Areata. It was a year ago today she started losing her hair. They tried steroid injections, per recommendation, but yielded little success. The steroid injections brought nearly 80 percent of her hair back, but it came back with no color, and large sections of her hair were still missing. They didn’t know where to go or who to talk to, until they found Invisions Hair Studio in Connecticut. Invisions is a Transitions Hair Loss Center for Connecticut.

Once they found Invisions, they had a much better idea for a solution to the Alopecia Areata condition. For anyone, a condition like this can be emotionally taxing, but for a women, it can be even more. Anthony never left her side through the whole process, making sure she knew she was not alone.

To define “Alopecia”, the Academy of Dermatology defines it as hair loss. In regards to Alopecia Areata, that is where the hair falls out in round patches on the scalp and other areas of the body. It’s been rumored that Alopecia can be the result of nerves or can even be contagious. But that is just not true. The hair follicles are attacked by the immune system, thus leading to hair loss. Other than that, the individuals suffering from this condition are otherwise healthy.

A Dermatologist is usually the first step in these cases. He or she will look over any prescriptions or medications you are on, and will also look at your diet. If you pass that, the normal treatment is steroid injections and vitamins. Now if this treatment does not work, it is time to start looking for a hair loss professional such as a Trichologist or hair loss specialist. A Trichologist or hair loss specialist is involved in the study of the health of a person’s hair and scalp. They can offer treatments dealing with hair additions, which can also be described as hair replacement or hair restoration. These treatments are usually the fastest, non-surgical, solutions to someone dealing with Alopecia Areata.
