Alopecia Areata Treatment Perth

What is Alopecia Areata?

Alopecia areata is a medical condition that affects women and men, where hair loss develops in patches — generally on the head. On occasion, total baldness may occur. In most cases the hair will grow back after several months, but in some cases, mens hair loss can be permanent.

It is not known exactly why alopecia areata occurs, but it is believed that the immune system attacks the cells which produce hair, causing inflammation at the root level.

What Is Involved In The Alopecia Areata Injection Procedure?

The procedure entails cortisone injections into the scalp approximately 1 cm apart. The number of injections depends on the size of the area being treated and can range from 2 -3 injections in smaller areas to 40 – 50 injections in larger areas.

To reduce the level of pain and discomfort, we generally apply a numbing cream prior to the treatment. After the procedure, patients can resume most activities immediately.

How It Works

Steroid injections aim to first supress the immune system that occurs in alopecia areata. This prevents them from attacking hair follicles so they can function normally and trigger hair regrowth. These injections are repeated about every four to six weeks and tend to work best in those who have small patches of hair loss. It may be necessary to repeat this treatment every few months.

In a study of 84 patients, 92 percent of participants with patchy alopecia areata and 61 percent of participants with alopecia totalis (total baldness) experienced regrowth on treated areas.

When performed properly with the right concentration and amount, injection treatments are very safe. Our hair loss specialist, Dr Muchi can use steroid injections to stop or reduce inflammation under the scalp in many hair loss conditions.

Who Are The Best Candidates?

  • Women and men with alopecia areata

  • Patients with small patches of hair loss

  • Hair loss affecting less than 50% of the scalp

During the initial complimentary consultation, Dr. Muchi or one of our nurses will perform a thorough assessment. If cortisone injection is not the appropriate treatment for your specific type of hair loss, we may recommend another treatment, such as PRP injections or mesotherapy.
