What Is Alopecia?

Alopecia areata is identified by the rapid loss of hair on the scalp, leading to patchy and random bald spots. It is a hereditary condition with a gradual process of baldness, but it can begin to show up as early as puberty for both men and women and is occasionally known as female or male pattern hair loss. Alopecia is extremely prevalent and will most likely influence you or someone you love at some point, which is why board-certified dermatologist Dr. Calvin Williams offers some of the most innovative hair restoration solutions. Schedule a consultation at Essential Dermatology Group in Bedford, TX if you suspect you have alopecia or any other hair condition.

What Are Treatment Options for Alopecia?

Depending on the degree and severity of your hair loss, there are different options available. For mild alopecia cases, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy or platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) uses your own growth factors to promote the regrowth of follicles that are damaged. However, when these nonsurgical therapies are not effective, follicle unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant surgery can be performed. Dr. Williams provides a minimally invasive FUE treatment using a highly advanced system that efficiently extracts viable hair follicles and carefully puts them where the damaged or missing ones were, covering the balding areas and offering a fast recovery time of just a couple of days.

I give this office a perfect five out of five rating. While I drove myself crazy searching for the best dermatologist in the area, being from another state, they exceeded my expectations. After extensive research and reading reviews, my journey went from the distress of hair loss and thinning to regaining my confidence through rapid hair growth and positive support. Shout to Dr. Cooper! But it didn't stop there. I was later diagnosed with rosacea, and even as I walked in with a rosy face and tears, they had a box on the counter offering a chance to win 20 units of Botox. I thought, why not try my luck since I feel like I'm falling apart? To my surprise, after 49 years, I won something! I'm treating myself right before my 50th birthday. I highly recommend checking out these amazing people!

I had been experiencing traction alopecia for a while. My hair would not grow in no matter what I tried. A friend referred me to Dr Williams. I've been going to him for a few months now. My hair is FINALLY filling in. Just do what he tells you and you will get the results you want. Not only that, he and his staff are also friendly and welcoming.

About Us
Is alopecia curable?
Unfortunately, there is no remedy for alopecia areata, yet treatments are offered to prompt your hair to grow back more rapidly. Even so, further loss of hair can develop even after the hair grows back. The medical team at Essential Dermatology Group specializes in taking care of alopecia areata and will be able to talk through all of your therapy scenarios during your appointment at our office in Bedford, TX.
What causes alopecia?
Because alopecia is an autoimmune disease, it develops when a patient's immune system mistakenly attacks the hair follicles, which ends in hair loss. Stress, past trauma, changes in hormone levels, nutritional deficits, and genetics can all cause the formation of alopecia areata.
How can I prevent alopecia from spreading?
Managing your stress and eating a healthy diet are two methods that could help keep alopecia from spreading more. When you come to our Bedford, TX office for your appointment, Dr. Calvin Williams will try to discover the root cause of your alopecia and offer more in-depth facts on ways to manage your condition.
