Loss of hair can be caused due to several different reasons among which Alopecia areata is the one. It is an autoimmune disease in which hair loss occurs from the scalp and sometimes from other parts of the body too. The new hair growth ceases completely because the body's immune system starts attacking its own cells (the hair follicles), making them smaller in size that decrease the hair growth as per the best hair specialist doctors.

What are the factors that trigger Alopecia Areata?
There are several factors that can trigger the autoimmune response of the body, thus, causing alopecia areata. The immune system of the body recognizes the hair follicles as foreign and thus healthy hair follicles are being attacked by the body’s immune system. This disease can be transferred genetically among generations. But, there are many hair regrowth treatments available for regenerating the hair by stimulating hair follicles.
Dr. Nivedita Dadu provides the best alopecia areata treatment in Delhi, Vasant Vihar. Treatment starts with the diagnosis and providing the treatment to treat the condition effectively. Treatment options include
1. Medications for alopecia areata
Certain medications are provided for controlling hair fall. They can be provided in the form of pills, lotion, gels and can be applied over the scalp, especially in the affected region.
2. Hair Growth Promoters (HGP)
HGP stands for Hair Growth Promoters. In this treatment, hair is re-stimulated from the hair follicles that are being rejected by the body as foreign. It is a simple procedure performed by experienced doctors where the growth factors are injected at the balding area to stimulate the hair follicles for re-growth. Blood samples from patients’ bodies are extracted and processed by centrifugation to separate the plasma and platelets and some growth promoters from granulated cells in the blood. The separated solution is injected into the area to be treated. The hair growth promoters injected into the patients’ scalp/ bald patches help heal the damaged hair follicles and promote the growth of hair by providing all the necessary factors for hair growth. Although it is a non-surgical treatment method, topical anesthesia is given to the patient before treatment. No downtime is required in this treatment, besides being quick and effective as the major benefits. It is one of the safest hair regrowth treatments.
3. Advanced Hair Growth Promoters (HGP) treatment
An advanced version of Hair Growth Promoters (HGP) treatment is introduced at Dadu Medical Centre. In this, HGP treatment is combined with laser treatment and microneedling to give the desired results. A low-energy laser beam is targeted at the area to be treated where it is absorbed by the pigments and increases blood circulation, thereby enhancing the blood supply to the hair follicle, which in turn provides more nutrients and oxygen to the hair root. This mechanism is further triggered by microneedling, which causes tiny injuries at the target area via a small device that has tiny needles at one end. These injuries stimulate the healing mechanism of the body by producing more growth factors and collagen. Thus, the hair growth is promoted at the follicle. To further increase the effectiveness of this treatment, HGP is used at last. The growth factors are injected into the body to promote hair growth which is even better now since microneedling already increased the penetration by creating tiny injuries. In combination, these treatment methods can give the most potent results.
These work by inhibiting the inflammatory cascade in Alopecia Areata and have proven to be an effective treatment modality for Alopecia Areata totalis and universalis as a hair loss control treatment.
