Treatment For Localized Hair Loss

Aug 17, 2007
While a receding hairline may be easier to deal with and hopefully slow down or even reverse, localized hair loss on the other hand is a lot trickier to deal with, even for men.

Massive localized loss of hair is usually caused by disease or as in the case of a condition known as alopecia areata, by an autoimmune disorder. Spot baldness can either happen in just one location (referred to as alopecia areata monocularis) or in the rather extreme case where one loses all the hair on the entire body-a condition referred to as alopecia areata universalis.

A famous case in point here is where one of the richest men who ever lived, oil magnate, John D. Rockefeller got an extreme case of alopecia that saw him lose all of the hair on his face including eyebrows and eyelashes. His doctors linked it to his extreme anxiety that had something to do with the running of his vast oil and petroleum interests. Another famous person to suffer from severe hair loss is well-known Italian soccer referee Pierluigi Collina.

What makes the treatment of localized hair loss so difficult is the general rule about hair loss which states that the more severe the loss of the hair, the more difficult recovery and growth of hair again will be.

Admittedly, there are cases where surgery has been tried and has proved successful although not in all cases. Failure can be a great disappointment because any kind of surgery does not usually come cheap. Let alone the highly specialized one required to deal with hair loss. Surgical methods used usually include the hair transplantation method. In this procedure hair-producing follicles are taken from the back and the sides of the head and then injected into bald or thinning areas.

A lot of success has also been recorded with certain natural hair loss products. In some tests whole localized areas have seen a complete recovery in hair growth. Admittedly not all natural products have been successful. One has to first find a way of confirming that the product they are dealing with is indeed natural as promoters keen to sell their products will often label them natural, when the truth is that they are not.

Secondly it is advisable that you opt for a natural product whose genuine independent test results you can obtain. Or at the very least, genuine third party case studies showing the conditions under which tests were carried out and the results.
