Alopecia areata (al-oh-PEE-shah air-ee-AH-tah) is a highly unpredictable, autoimmune skin disease resulting in the loss of hair on the scalp and elsewhere on the body. This common, but very challenging and capricious disease, affects approximately 1.7 percent of the population overall, including more than 4.7 million people in the United States alone. Due to the fact that much of the public is still not familiar with alopecia areata, the disease can have a profound impact on one's life and functional status, both at work and at school.

In alopecia areata, the affected hair follicles are mistakenly attacked by a person's own immune system (white blood cells), resulting in the arrest of the hair growth stage. Alopecia areata usually starts with one or more small, round, smooth bald patches on the scalp and can progress to total scalp hair loss (alopecia totalis) or complete body hair loss (alopecia universalis).

Alopecia areata occurs in males and females of all ages and races; however, onset most often begins in childhood and can be psychologically devastating. Although not life-threatening, alopecia areata is most certainly life-altering, and its sudden onset, recurrent episodes, and unpredictable course have a profound psychological impact on the lives of those disrupted by this disease.

The three main types of Alopecia are:

- Alopecia Areata: Patchy or balding areas on the head or eyebrows.
- Alopecia Totalis: Complete loss of hair on the entire Cranial Area.
- Alopecia Universalis: Complete loss of body, facial and Cranial hair.

Chemotherapy and Radiation

People who undergo Chemotherapy and/or Radiation offer suffer hair loss due to the high potency of the drugs involved. There is no way to determine just how much hair one might lose when undergoing these procedures and nothing can be done to stop the hair from falling out.

In the past, when one received radiation or chemotherapy, often they would only be able to cover their hair loss by getting a wig or toupee. Fortunately, because technology has advanced so much, we can customize a non-surgical hair system for you that will give you an undetectable hair line and a full head of hair. Further, we can match your hair type, hair color and hair thickness to what your were naturally given. However, to receive the best results, we advise you to come in to see us prior to your treatments so that we can best match up those qualities of your existing hair, ensuring the most undetectable hair system possible.

We respect the privacy of all of our clients and as such, we assure your personal matters will not be shared with anyone.

Tricotiliosis is a unique problem by which an individual pulls at their hair and eyebrows to the point that it begins to fall out and cause skin irritation and damage. Why this occurs is still somewhat of a mystery and often psychiatrists recommend medicine. However, we have discovered other ways to deal with this condition that are non-invasive and non-medical. Please come in for a free evaluation and we can best determine the appropriate cause for action for battling this.
