Alopecia is a hair disease that affects almost half of the population in Spain. It is suffered by 50% of men and 10% of women. There are different treatments depending on the type of baldness and the needs of each patient.
It is the so-called ‘common baldness’: 90% of the cases of alopecia are of this type. The most effective treatments are hair transplantation and specific medications, but there are other options.
Autoimmune in origin, it causes hair loss in round patches. In severe cases it can lead to total hair loss. It is usually treated with medication.
Other types of alopecia
Less frequent are fibrosing, diffuse or cicatricial alopecia. For all of them, treatment options are available.
