Alopecia Areata: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment Options

. One of the most common causes of hair loss in both men and women is Alopecia Areata
. Alopecia Areata usually starts with one or more round, small, smooth patches
. With Alopecia Areata, hair follicles drastically slow production, laying almost dormant for years sometimes - still ready to resume production
. While Alopecia Areata generally affects the scalp, it's not limited to the scalp
. In some people, the condition spreads until all hair on the scalp is lost - Alopecia Totalis
. In rare cases, the condition spreads until all hair on the body is lost - Alopecia Universalis
. Still, no matter how widespread the hair loss is, the hair follicles remain alive below the skin and there is still the possibility of regrowth
. There are several treatment options, for mild cases cortisone is generally injected, unfortunately, for more extensive cases, there is no simple and sure solution

Stem Cell Regeneration on Hair Follicles Growth Process

. It's still a mystery to us how human follicles undergo their cyclic growth process
. Hair follicles are one of the few organs to undergo degeneration and regeneration, their cause is buried deeply in human development
. Recently, we've discovered that every hair follicle contains a permanent reservoir of stem cells that participate in growth, development, and repair of tissues
. These stem cells are responsible directly for hair growth, which means that they are also responsible for the lack of growth
. This opens up the possibility of using stem cell treatments in the future to allow patients to regrow their hair without having to undergo surgery
