Alopecia is a common autoimmune disorder that can cause unpredictable hair loss. This is when the follicles destroy your hair by your immune cells. As a result, it is often coin-shaped bald patches that are small and later expand in size and number.
Alopecia areata tends to affect anyone despite age or gender, though most cases have been recorded to hit before 30.

One in five people is affected by this syndrome. If you notice any patches of baldness like these, please consult us before they increase in size or number.
