Areata barbae

Areata barbae is a condition that causes men to lose some or all of their beard You may already be familiar with alopecia areata since before? This is the name given to bald patches on the scalp. It is an autoimmune disease that affects hair follicles and leads to bald patches.

Is alopecia barbae common?

Alopecia "alopecia barbae" affecting beard growth is relatively common form. It is most common in people who already have an autoimmune disease such as: lupus, vitiligo, thyroid disease, type 1 diabetes and colitis.

How long does alopecia barbae take to grow back?

Usually the beard grows back within 12 months or faster. However, for some people it may take longer or be more severe. Which if you are unlucky can also cause total baldness (alopecia totalis) or total loss of body hair (alopecia universalis).

Facial hair tends to grow at different rates. If you have visible patches in your beard, it can help to reduce the visibility of your beard by thinning it out more. Some choose to fill out their beards with coloured fibres or micropigmentation. Not all men get a full beard either and this is genetic.

Treatment for alopecia barbae

Prp in the face on the beard has been shown to have positive effects on beard stains. We have written long information about it already so read more about "PRP".

Is Alopecia Barbae caused by stress?

Although Alopecia barbae is believed to be an autoimmune condition where your body attacks its own hairs thinking they are foreign, no one knows what causes it. Historically, the link between psychological and physical stress is thought to be linked to outbreaks. For specialist advice on alopecia barbae, patients should first consult a doctor, preferably one who specialises in hair loss. Once the condition is established, treatment can be started with good reason.

If you have alopecia in your beard, there is a good chance that it will grow back, even without treatment. If the condition is more widespread, it is less likely to grow back spontaneously and may require treatment.

To encourage the beard to grow back faster, some people choose to treat themselves with steroid cream or injections or other drugs that can alter the inflammation of the hair follicles that causes alopecia areata. There is still no cure. If you feel that you have never had a full beard because of sparse beard growth, a beard transplantation be an option. In the case of alopecia barbae, the patches can move around and then the Prp be worth testing.
