Alopecia Areata

Alopecia Areata or AA as it is known, is thought to be caused by an auto immune disorder. It is identified by small round bald patches that can progress and eventually join becoming much larger and harder to disguise.Alopecia Areata is known as temporary type of hair loss unusually lasting approximately 18 months. Unfortunately for some it can last longer and sometimes reoccurring.

It is inadvisable to use any form of adding hair whilst the Alopecia Areata is active. In the meantime scalp cover or scalp make up may be effective, if not perhaps a temporary wig until things settle.

Once settled down I would suggest similar hair additions to those with trichotillomania and chemotherapy. It is possible to use the same system safely without risk of damage to new growth or endangering the existing hair how ever large or small the areas to be covered are.

See Tracey’s story.

For alternative systems that are also safe and suitable can be seen on Stephanie and Kerry from the chemotherapy section and Naomi, Jane and Sam in the trichotillomania section.

Price will be given at a free consultation.

Alopecia Areata – Tracey’s Story

For years I’ve suffered with Alopecia Areata. I’ve tried all the treatments to no avail.
I’ve also bought many wigs and had hair extensions, really, nothing has been that successful until now.

I visit Christine in her clinic once every 4-5 weeks and wear her fantastic hair replacement system.

This is the most natural and normal I have felt, just like it is my own hair grown.
