Alopecia (hair loss) is the medical description of loss of hair from the head or body, sometimes to the extent of baldness. Baldness is the state of lacking hair where it often grows, especially on the head. The amount and patterns of hair loss can vary greatly, ranging from a minimal loss of hair on the head, to a total loss of all head hair, to the most extreme form of baldness which involves the loss of all hair from the head and the body.
Alopecia can often lead to low self-esteem or even anxiety and depression. Because of it’s progressive nature, many patients lives are affected adversely over time. Most balding people suffer privately the sarcastic ridicule that is common in our time. The pressures of society’s need to stay young and look healthy are a constant battle for the balding man or women. We all would like to keep a full head of hair forever.
