What is Alopecia and What Causes it?

Balding. Thinning. Shedding.

All three of these words are often used to describe what happens when an individual is going through the experience of hair loss. Both men and women struggle with changes in their hair for a number of reasons. Alopecia is the loss of hair on the body, and the process of balding. There are several causes for alopecia. New Orleans LA certified hair loss consultant, Pete Zito of the Hair Loss Control Clinic, is highly familiar with the various reasons for alopecia, and offers a number of non-surgical solutions for men and women who are struggling with the loss of their hair.

Alopecia is often caused by a number of reasons. In most cases, specifically for men, it is caused by male pattern baldness. Male pattern baldness is extremely noticeable and easily diagnosed, as hair begins to thin and bald in specific patterns on the scalp. Though many men feel as though there is no recourse for this type of balding, it can be stopped and reversed with several hair regrowth techniques and treatments.

Alopecia can also be caused by certain medications and medical conditions. Individuals who have thyroid conditions or who are extremely stressed may find that they are shedding hair in the shower and when brushing. Poor diet and changes in weight can also trigger episodes of alopecia in both men and women.

Alopecia can even be a short-term problem that is caused by a major fluctuation of hormones. Women who are pregnant and those who have just given birth to their children may notice substantial shedding and hair loss. This is normal, but can still be treated through the Hair Loss Control Clinic in order to avoid continued thinning and permanent changes to the hair.

Hair Loss Control Clinic of New Orleans is committed to providing hair restoration treatments for both women and men who find that they are struggling with hair loss, thinning, and balding. He has clients of all ages and stages in their life that have found treatment solutions that are non-surgical and affordable. Call his office today to schedule your free scalp analysis and consultation appointment and start on your battle against alopecia.
