I found a cure!

Hello everyone,

March 2016: I got AA 9 years back. It slowly developed into AU. I tried many doctors, many treatments and nothing worked. I started accepting my condition after joining this group and learned to live with it, which is a good thing. At the same time, I was starting to give up hope.

Two years back, I thought I'll try my last shot with Dr.Richard Strick. At first I was skeptical with the treatment. I have tried a similar one where the cream irritates the scalp and…

anyone out there have experience with permanent makeup?  I’m thinking of getting my eyebrows done. I’m tired of having to draw them on each morning. Micro blading seems the way to go. More natural looking. Any thoughts?

Hello. I have been diagnosed with alopecia areata. I have only had it for about a month and have many patches all over my head. I was just put on prednisone for 24 days and a topical cream.

I am in need of support, This is just happening so fast. Thanks.

Surgeon with alopecia

I thought I would write a quick blog about my experience. I am currently 38 years old. I had a full head of hair for 37 years. I lost my older brother three years ago and was severely depressed as he was my best friend. Shortly after I noticed my beard was thinning out then about a year later I had a bald spot on the back of my head that my barber noticed. Very quickly I progressed to universalis. Needless to say I was shocked at losing my hair and how fast it progressed. I work as an…
