Alopecia is a medical condition which causes hair loss. There are many different types of alopecia and the causes vary. Depending on whether your alopecia is generalised or localised, LINIA Skin Clinic can provide you with a solution to hair loss.
What are the causes of alopecia?
Alopecia is caused by a number of reasons, one of them being that your body doesn’t produce enough hormones. Other reasons include:
- Iron or zinc deficiency
- Medication and illnesses
- Thyroid gland disorders
- Scalp infections
Types of alopecia
- Pattern baldness – the most common type of alopecia
- Alopecia areata – there are patches of hair loss but hair has the potential to grow back
- Scarring alopecia – the hair follicle is destroyed completely meaning that hair won’t grow back.
Here at LINIA Skin Clinic, we understand how traumatic and distressing it is to experience hair loss, hence why we provide various treatments to provide you with a reliable solution, all our treatment plans are tailored to your individual needs. With natural ageing, hair loss cannot be helped, and although this causes no risk to your health, LINIA Skin Clinic provide Minoxidil and Finasteride treatments to prevent alopecia.
