Few words about traumatic & scarring alopecias
The main clinical features of traumatic and scarring alopecia is the destruction of hair follicles, and the scarring of the skin, causing permanent alopecia.
In several cases traumatic alopecias are mild, non-progressing, without symptoms, while in other cases the inflammation is most intense - usually below the surface of the skin - and progresses rapidly, accompanied by pain, itching and burning sensation.
There are two basic categories of scarring alopecia, primary and secondary:
In primary scarring alopecia, inflammation has targeted action on hair follicles, while in secondary scarring alopecia inflammation is either symptomatic or is caused by external nature acts (wounds, burns, infections, radiation, etc.)
Succinctly, the causes may be:
- Growth disorders and inherited diseases (aplastic skin, ichthyosis, etc.)
- Microbial infections
- Cancer of the skin
- Dermatoses such as lichen, sclerosis, sarcoidosis, systemic lupus erythematosus etc.
- Damage from natural causes: mechanical trauma, burns etc.
With the collaboration of DHI laboratories and after extended clinical studies, hair implantation constitutes the only suggested method for the treatment of scarring alopecia sufferers and the only hope for their families.
The DHI Medical Group supports the treatment of traumatic alopecia with social responsibility, offering free Direct Hair Implantation sessions to sufferers.
