Childhood Hair Loss and Hair Replacement

Pediatric hair loss can be devastating. Many believe that hair loss in children is not very common. However, statistics indicate that about 3% of all pediatric visits are related to childhood hair loss. The following conditions are responsible for the vast majority of pediatric hair loss: (1) tinea capitis, (2) alopecia areata, (3) trauma to the hair shaft, and (4) telogen effluvium.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a surgical hair transplant procedure where a strip of hair is taken from the back and sides of the scalp where hair is more resistant to balding, and it is placed in areas where thinning or bald has occurred. The strip of hair is subdivided into slivers using a microscope. These slivers are composed of only one row of hair follicles which are subdivided into follicular unit grafts using dissection techniques.

I Have Alopecia. Now What?

I was recently diagnosed with Alopecia and I didn't know what it even was?  After doing a whole bunch of online research and talking with my doctor and subsequently with a Dermatologist, I decided to document my experience and keep a journal. Vern Cole and his lovely wife Patsy have very graciously allowed me to share it here, because I thought that if I didn't know what Alopecia was, there were probably a whole lot of other women who didn't know either, and while I started out scared and feeling alone and very vulnerable, I ended up in a very wonderful place of confidence and hope. It wasn’t until recently that I learned the word alopecia means “hair loss.” It [...]
