What is Alopecia Areata?

Alopecia Areata is a condition in which there is patchy loss of hair from any part of the head and in fact anywhere in the body. Alopecia Areata often starts as an infection with itching, irritation and dandruff. However the danger is the ability of it to spread like a wild fire through forest. Alopecia Areata can almost overnight develop into 2-3 patches, spread to the body and leading to hair loss from all over. The disease can be broken up into four stages.

Causes of Alopecia Areata

Alopecia Areata is a type of hair loss that occurs most commonly in men and women. In this, your immune system adversely impacts hair follicles and causes inflammation. Researchers don’t get enough idea to understand the reasons for the immune attack of hair follicles. Meanwhile, they also think that both the environment and genetics are responsible for Alopecia Areata. Find the best alopecia areata treatment bangalore.

Though researchers don’t find the exact causes of Alopecia Areata, they think these factors can be responsible for this condition.

  • Deficiency in Vitamin D: Those people who have vitamin D deficiency are prone to develop this disease.
  • Genetic factors are also responsible for alopecia areata. If any of your family members is suffering from this disease or suffered in the past, there’s the possibility that you can also develop this issue.
  • Some health conditions such as thyroid, down’s syndrome, vitiligo, and more are responsible for alopecia areata.

Stages of Alopecia Areata

Stage 1 – Stage of solitary patch – This is the best stage to treat and when dealt adequately most cases respond very well allowing almost 100% re growth.

Stage 2- Stage of multiple patches – This is the next stage where 3-4 patches co-exist. While recovery is still possible from this stage, the chances of full recovery start progressively decreasing from this stage onwards.

Stage 3- Stage of body hair loss – Along with hair loss from the first affected part, which is most often the head, there is considerable hair loss from body parts as well, like beard and moustache in men, eyebrows in women, arms and legs etc.

Stage 4- Stage of complete hair loss – This is the last stage and often known as Alopecia Totalis because of total loss of hair from all over the body, including the underarms and the private areas.

Alopecia Treatment in Bangalore depends on the type and cause. The condition can run an erratic course with frequent recurrences and remissions. It can have a sudden onset starting with a single patch, overnight multiplying into multiple patches, and can spread like wildfire leading to hair loss from all over the body. Alopecia Areata in stages one and two shows the best response and as it spreads to the other parts of the body the chances of effective control come down.

Alopecia Areata treatment options at Dr. Health Clinic

At Dr. Health, treatment of Alopecia Areata is started after a thorough in-depth hair & scalp analysis and examination of nails by our senior Trichologist. This is done to differentiate Alopecia Areata from other resembling conditions like tinea capitis, lupus, traction alopecia and trichotillomania. On Tricho Analysis, alopecia areata typically appears as circular patches of hair loss characterized by short broken hairs.

When it comes to treating Alopecia areata the main goal of the treatment is to stop the immune system from attacking the hair follicles and to stimulate regrowth of hair. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, our Trichologist will share an honest opinion about which of the below treatments are best indicated for you along with clarity on its outcome.

Topical Applications

Topical agents work by reducing inflammation and are indicated for localized cases of alopecia areata. They work to help the hair grow faster once the follicle is no longer under attack by the immune system and is capable of producing hair. They work by encouraging blood flow to hair follicles, stimulating dormant follicles and by aiding hair growth.

Oral medicines

There are four stages in the progression of Alopecia Areata, and each stage requires attention to a specific aspect. As a clinic driven to providing the very best treatment for alopecia areata in Bangalore, we address each stage differently.

Thermal Scalp Treatments

These treatments involve the use of heat, such as steam or infrared technology, to open up the hair follicles and enhance the absorption of active ingredients in scalp treatments, promoting better efficacy.

Scalp Sensitizers or Topical immunotherapy

This therapy works by inducing an allergic or irritant reaction on affected areas, thereby stimulating the immune system and encouraging new growth in that area. This treatment is reserved for patients with diffuse involvement who have not responded to other therapies.

Hairpieces and camouflage techniques

are used in irreversible cases where there is no scope for new growth, like in the case of Cicatricial Alopecia Areata.

What do our patients say

I personally would strongly recommend Dr. Pranjal Shamsher for skin problems. I had acne issues and went for treatment, doctor took time to explain the issue and recommended medicines and a certain diet plan for a month. I actually wanted immediate results and was frustrated that there was no improvement in the first week after following the diet and medicines. Nevertheless I followed them for the next 3 weeks and slowly saw results over the end of third week and my acnes slowly started disappearing, which made me feel better.

I had taken a treatment from Dr. Shahid Shamsher for my bothersome dandruff and My dandruff was cured in 4 months. Some of us have dry dandruff and the others have oily dandruff and the causes also vary from person to person and hence would the treatment. I had an oily dandruff with an extremely itchy scalp. Every alternate day I had to wash my hair. Initially it was mild and I treated them at home using Head & Shoulders, also switched to Pantene and All Clear anti-dandruff shampoos and tried some home remedies but the problem persisted. My mom got quite worried and insisted on medical care and attention. Then I visited Dr. Shahid’s R.T Nagar clinic. On examining, the doctor said that since I had used my sharp nails to frequently scratch my itchy scalp, the skin had become sore and I had got a fungal infection on my scalp. So he first gave me some oral medicines and cream to locally apply over the infected areas and then he proceeded with the dandruff treatment. Since the fungal infection had to be cured first the treatment went longer and so the cost of the treatment also steeped. His charges were a bit too high but were worth every penny. I suggest that such high rates for health care can be eventually decreased to make it more affordable so that more people can afford it.

I had black pigmentations on my face and I consulted Dr. pranjal shamsher at dr health clinic. Doctor said these are freckles, she however had given some topical cream and some homeopathic tablets to eat and said that it would reduce with that. Within 2 months of taking her treatment I saw a lot of improvement, the pigmentations have almost disappeared. My treatment is still on as it is a 6 months medication and thanks to dr health clinic for treating me.

Firstly i would Thank all of them who have provided such a wonderfull reviews about Dr Shahid Shamsher. After reading reviews and information provided about Dr: Shahid Shamsher myself and my friend visited him on 5th October 2020 as both of us had heavy hair loss. There was a wait time of 30 mins in the Clinic and finally when we met him he scanned my scalp and pointed to the exact condition of my scalp which indicated hair thinning and hairfall, he followed up with few questions about the nature of hair fall, hereditary / water problems, medication that i took earlier to arrest hair fall (priorly I was using Tugain 5% lotion for the past 3 years and it was not able to control the hair loss). based on the nature of my hair loss includes hereditary & scalp conditions he prescribed treatment in 2 Phases During Phase 1 treatment : Hair thinning & Hair fall would be controlled / nullified, including minimizing the negative effects which could have been caused by Tugain and during Phase 2 Hair Growth treatment would be started. Both Phase 1 & Phase 2 should be followed religiously for 3 months. Addition to this he told me he would end his treatment of Phase 2 in 3 months and hence forth he would provide me details natural food based diet which would help me to maintain / retain the hairs
All of the medications given to me were tonic sort and it needs to taken with 2 tbl spoons to water, and some gel sort to be mixed with Himalaya Shampoo for Hair wash
After taking phase 1 treatment I revisited him in Feb 2021. The hair fall had stopped completely, barely 1-2 hair are falling right now and so I am in the 2nd phase of hair growth. This treatment involves some application based medicines to be put directly into the scalp areas and I have been used it for about a month. The good part is that its non greasy by nature, so I don’t need to wash every day, because I have to use the medicines regularly, so that would have become quite a hassle. Presently 2 months in 2nd phase treatment and overall 6 months I can say I am quite happy as the hair fall is nearly zero and according to me there is nearly 20-30% growth in the top part of the head. Earlier I used also have continous itching so that has stopped completely and that’s one major plus for me.
I will keep you updated as and when further changes happen.

I’ve had so many pimples and pimple marks due to hormonal changes. I tried many products and visited dermatologists before but it only made more black marks on the skin. I tried visiting Dr Health and consulted Dr pranjal and took 3months of course and i can see visible results from 2weeks. It really works both for pimples and pimple marks. medicines are expensive but it works and 100% natural and free from chemicals. Much better than what other dermatologist recommended. This works wonders of the price that I wasted on other dermatologist and medicines.

I was around the age of 33 I had lost much hair from the top of the head. I think I lost quite a bit of time first debating whether something can be done about it or not and then debating whether something should be done about it or not. Should I just accept my baldness as part of ageing process or not? Then the debate came as to where to go. One thing I definitely did not want to do is to some place where they do things like weaving and those wig like things. No way am I going to put a rug on my head. So that’s when I decided to consult the Trichologist Shahid Shamsher. One more thing that helped me to decide to go there was that one of my friends earlier had taken treatment there and was singing his praises.
The place was hugely rushed and seeing from what the other reviews over here are saying as well, it has always been rushed as most people have said they have waited for long hours there. I remember thinking that after having spent half my Sunday if the baldness still does not get better, then this would be the worst way to have spent my holiday. Fortunately he told me I need to come only after 3 months. He gave some pungent medicines to take and some other oily stuff which I had to mix with 100ml shampoo every month. Told me to wash daily and yes of course told me to cut my hair short. Now the best part of all this is that just like he told me in 3 months the hair fall came down considerably. Infact it was not more than 10-15 per day as compared to the earlier fall of nearly 50-60 per day. So I was happy that atleast I am not balding in a hurry and also consulted him again after 3 months. This time round there were some more medicines to take which were for a longer duration, he told to take it now for 6months and come after that. I had no intention of becoming an addict to any medicines, his or any others. But then he told since I have responded well, this is the last course and that after this he would but me on natural organic diet which I can then do by myself.
So when this doc Shahid Shamsher finally got me off all treatments and put me his organic formula and diet I was more than happy to do it. I have not followed it honestly to the hilt, but I have done it atleast 90% correctly. The result of this has been that I have been definitely able to save my hair and make sure there is no baldness further. And dare I say that in fact it is even 50% or more better.

My face was making me older than my age that’s when I decided to reach out, got to know Dr. Pranjal Shamsher through my friend who has taken similar treatment & was happy with the results. Doctor assessed my problems & explained patiently what are the treatments/procedures she will be doing, after 3 sessions got the best results, never knew it could do so much of difference in my appearance n easily look 6 years younger, it has given me immense confidence. Doctor is knowledgeable n well equipped you feel you’re in right hands. Thanks a ton Dr. Pranjal Shamsher for the wonderful results & definitely will strongly recommend to all who need anti-ageing treatments, thanks.

It was such a shock to discover a bald patch on my head one fine day. I had no choice but to conceal it with a cap. I decided to visit Dr health clinic to see the hair doctor Shahid over there. It turned out that I was suffering from Alopecia Areata. This is the medical term that he had used which I didn’t understand but all I could understand that this damage is not permanent and can be reversed. I found the doctor very shrewd so didn’t have the guts to ask him the meaning but later on I googled and read all about this Alopecia Areata which says like Alopecia areata is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles which is where hair growth begins. The damage to the follicle is usually not permanent…. The doctor struck a raw note when he mentioned that wearing a cap in the long run is hardly any solution at all. It may even worsen my condition, as the humidity trapped within the scalp may cause sebum and dead skin cells to fester and infect my already delicate hair follicles. After a course of his treatments, I found my bald patch growing baby hair. Naturally, I was more than elated to leave both my hair loss and my cap behind at last!

I have been taking treatment from Dr. Health Clinic for around 3 months for my skin allergies. It is definitely under control, I did not get any major itching problems since then but I have observed that I feel little itchiness if I skip my medicines for few days. According to Doctor this is how the allergies should be kept under control since there is no complete cure for allergies and with time the problem would start declining

My scalp has always been on the oily side. In the beginning, I didn’t pay much attention to my hair loss. I merely dismissed it as part and parcel of life’s stresses.
It was only when my hair started falling noticeably that I began to panic. Luckily,
a solution was at hand with Dr Shahid Sir. I was told that my hair loss was due
to my unhealthy lifestyle and eating habits. Under the treatment of Dr Shahid
Sir, my hair problem has been solved though I still don’t believe him that my
hair loss was due to my unhealthy lifestyle and eating habits but must be true,
can’t know exactly. Again he has prescribed Himalaya shampoo for my oily scalp
and has advised to wash my hair regularly with the shampoo which is a little
impractical and inconvenient is what I personally feel. Changing my eating
habits as per the doctor’s suggestion is also a little difficult with my busy
schedule. But anyways my hair loss has reduced for now. So I am satisfed. Everyone
knows that prevention is better than cure! Now, I always coax my friends to
seek treatment not just for hair loss, but also to prevent the hair loss even
before it happens.
