Alopecia – Hair Loss

Alopecia is the thinning of the hair of any extent up to total baldness. It is normal to men and part of the ageing process in males; though it is not an illness. The rate at which men become bald, if indeed they lose their hair at all, is likely to be down to their genes. Typical male hair loss is also permanent.

In females, hair also becomes thinner as they age, although there should be no actual baldness. Baldness may also be caused by various diseases, maybe a side effect of some drug treatments or by hormonal disorders and occasionally after childbirth and traumatic experiences, such as bereavement or terror.

hair loss patterns

Here are some ‘male pattern alopecia‘ signs:

  • Hair recedes from the forehead and temples
  • Hair becomes progressively thinner on the crown
  • These areas of recession become larger and join up until hair remains on the sides and back of the head
  • Alopecia can also affect body hair including that in the private part

So Are the Treatment Options for Hair Loss?
For pattern baldness or hair loss resulting due to hereditary reasons, Rogaine (topical minoxidil) and Propecia (finasteride) are the only FDA approved drugs to treat such issue.

However, don’t fret as permanent hair loss can also be treated by hair replacement procedures, such as hair transplant. The procedure can be micro-grafting, slit grafting, punch grafting, depending on the circumstances and option of the patient.

If you are a men with male-pattern baldness, or a woman with female-pattern (hair loss due to genetics reasons), or perhaps a person who has lost some but not all hair as a result of burns or other scalp injuries, a hair replacement procedure may just be for you. Just make sure that you have it in trusted clinics with properly trained people and adequate facilities. Do take note though that Alopecia and Alopecia areata are two different conditions.

Many Useful Botox Procedures

Botox Liverpool

Botox injections have become a well known procedure for the fight against aging by reducing wrinkles in the facial area. However, there are some alternative uses for Botox that are very helpful with some more serious medical conditions. These procedures are fairly new, but they have been proven to be effective with issues that hinder the everyday life of an individual. Potential patients should be sure to have any Botox procedure performed by a licensed and certified physician that has experience with injections. This is especially true with newer or experimental procedures that are currently being performed.


The uses of Botox injections to reduce or eliminate migraine headaches have proven to be successful in a small percentage of patients. This procedure requires that Botox be injected in the forehead and other areas of the head known as trigger points that is completed every 12 weeks. Another alternative method is receiving Botox injections in the armpit area to eliminate sweating profusely. People with this debilitating condition known as hyperhidrosis can eliminate profuse sweating for up to two years. Other uses of Botox include people suffering from Parkinson’s disease or stroke. Individuals that suffered from muscles being paralyzed due to a stroke can use Botox injections to even out facial features through recovery.
