2. Alopecia areata universalis, where you lose hair of your entire body,
3. Diffuse alopecia areata makes the hair thin over time.
4. Ophiasis Alopecia Areata, which results in bald patches on your head

What are the common symptoms of alopecia areata?

The symptoms you might notice if you have alopecia areata include:
1. You might notice small bald patches on your scalp as well as on other body parts.
2. The bald patches might grow larger over time.
Sometimes the hair grows back in a particular spot only.
3. Your fingernails and toenails become red and breakable.

Where does Alopecia Areata mostly occur?

Alopecia areata occurs anywhere on your body, which includes:
1. Scalp,
2. Eyebrows,
3. Eyelashes,
4. Armpits,
5. Area of your beard, etc.

How can you treat alopecia areata?

Alopecia Areata can be treated, and you can grow your hair back with a protein or biotin treatment, which acts as a vitamin for your hair. At first, red light therapy is given, which uses laser light to give radiation rays into the tissues of the scalp, encouraging hair growth on the weak cells by the absorption of the rays from light. After the light therapy process, micro-channeling is done for hair growth into the scalp.

This helps to renew damaged hair follicles and improve the collagen of the skin. Through the micro-channeling process, the circulation of blood increases, which helps to improve the follicles, thus providing nutrients needed for hair growth. At the end, protein or biotin is injected into the scalp through injections because applying biotin-containing products cannot help with absorption, which is why injecting biotin directly is useful. It helps the scalp grow new, healthy hair while also preventing hair dryness and making the hair stronger from the roots.

How many sessions are needed for results?

You need to do at least 4 sessions to stop hair fall problems. After that, 7-8 sessions are needed in total to see a visible result by noticing the improvement in hair texture; also, the hair will look shiny and smooth. But you need to do the treatment again if your doctor has prescribed it.

Is biotin treatment suitable for everyone?

Yes, biotin is a safe procedure that anyone suffering from bad hair conditions or hair loss can definitely use.

Are there any side effects included?

There are some possible side effects, which include:
1. You might experience trouble sleeping,
2. Rashes in skin is possible,
3. Digestion problem.

What improvements are you likely to notice after protein/biotin treatment?

After the protein/biotin treatment, you are likely to notice your hair fall problems are reducing, as well as new and thick hair.

What aftercares are you advised to follow?

You need to apply shampoo and oil solutions as per the advice prescribed by the doctor. You are also advised to take supplements for hair that will be taken according to your condition of hair that your doctor can advise properly.
