Alopecia

Alopecia is the medical term for a variety of hair loss conditions, with more than a fifth of women and nearly 50% of all men in the UK expected to experience a form of alopecia.

There are a number of different types of alopecia, including alopecia areata, scarring alopecia and traction alopecia.

Alopecia areata is a condition that causes patches of baldness. It is believed to be a symptom of an immune disorder or, in some cases, a genetic condition. In many cases the hair grows back after about a year although in some cases of alopecia, the hair follicle can be damaged which could lead to permanent hair loss. 

Other types of alopecia include:

  • Traction alopecia - often caused by repeated tension or stress on the hair and its follicles.
  • Male & female pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia - often caused by a combination of genetic and hormonal factors.
  • Diffuse patterned alopecia - often caused by a genetic predisposition.
  • Telogen effluvium - temporary hair loss often caused by a shock to the system.
  • Trichotillomania - hair pulling disorder.

Hair Pulling Disorder - Trichotillomania

Trichotillomania is an impulse controlled condition where a person feels compelled to pull hair out of their head, eyelashes or eyebrows. Impulse-control disorders are more common amongst teenagers and young adults, usually affecting females more often than males. Repeatedly pulling hair from the head or face will result in bald patches and hair loss.

It is important that you seek medical advice from your GP, who may be able to prescribe therapy to control the impulsive behaviour. In the meantime, we can help with your hair loss by offering a variety of cosmetic trichotillomania solutions, such as wigs or hair pieces.

Telogen Effluvium Hair Loss

On average, we naturally shed around 100 hairs every day. If you are suffering from Telogen Effluvium Hair Loss however, you may lose up to 3 times this amount and your hair will start to become thinner. If you have thicker hair, it can take several months to notice that your hair is thinning.

If you notice that your hair is becoming more thin, it is vital that you seek professional help and advice from a hair loss specialist at our Lincolnshire hair loss clinic
