People must understand the difference between Male Pattern Baldness and other types of hair loss that can be aggravated by stress (Alopecia). Male Pattern Baldness is a hereditary genetic condition and isn’t made any worse by stress. On the other hand some hair loss conditions like alopecia areata can be initiated by stress and anxiety.

People who have extremely stressful lives can sometimes trigger off alopecia areata where their hair starts to fall out in big clumps which in turn increases their stress and aggravates the hair loss condition even more. Alopecia areata is a pretty rare condition which is initiated when psychological or physical stress completely disrupts the body’s immune system which makes it attack hair follicles at the root and destroy them.

Alopecia areata is brought on by completely different things to Male Pattern Baldness and thus must be treated differently. Many people assume that hair loss is all the same and thus can be treated in the same way but this is not the case. You should always get professional advice from a Westminster Trichologist  before getting treatment for any type of hair loss.

Male Pattern Baldness can be treated by using the drug Propecia but it will have no affect whatsoever on men and women who suffer from alopecia areata. In the same way treatments for alopecia areata which include the use of anti anxiety drugs and counselling on learning how to deal with stress, will not have any effect on men who are suffering from Male Pattern Baldness.

There are quite a few different types of hair loss which affect men and women and statistics show that those people who go and get a Westminster Trichologist’s consultation are far more likely to reverse hair loss than those who don’t.
