Can Alopecia Be Cured?

If you notice that there’s more hair on your pillow when you wake up in the morning, it can be alarming. It’s normal to lose a few hairs every day when you brush or wash your hair, but if you’re finding more-than-normal amounts of loose hair, you might wonder if you have alopecia. More than 6.8 million Americans will experience this type of hair loss, according to the National Alopecia Areata Foundation.

The good news is that if you do notice thinning hair or bald patches, we can help. At Honest Hair Restoration, Martin Maag, MD, diagnoses and treats all forms of alopecia.

Understanding alopecia

Alopecia areata is one of many types of hair loss. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition that leads to thinning hair, hair loss, and even bald patches. The hair loss occurs when your immune system attacks your hair follicles. When a hair follicle is damaged, the hair doesn’t grow back, which leads to thinning hair. AA is one of the many conditions we treat at Honest Hair Restoration.

Curing alopecia

Thinning hair — and especially bald patches — can take a toll on your confidence and self-esteem. Unfortunately, there’s no magical cure for alopecia. But, you don’t have to be stuck with thin hair forever. There are many treatment options available to help restore your hair and with that your confidence and self-esteem.

What to do if you have thinning hair 

At Honest Hair Restoration, Dr. Maag offers several methods for managing alopecia. Depending on your specific needs, you may benefit from:


Hair transplants aren’t the “plugs” of the past or the “Strip Method”. Dr. Maag’s proprietary ProGrowth Combination F.U.E., Hair Transplant, utilizes NeoGraft Technology to meticulously and methodically retrieve follicles that possess multiple hairs from the follicle. This will help to give a fuller appearance with your transplant. This type of transplant isn’t like the old punch transplants or “Strip Method” of the past. According to studies, and patient testimonials the new technology provides quicker recoveries, no linear painful scar in the donor area, and no need for stitches. Dr. Maag’s use of custom-blended medications provide for a more comfortable experience.        

Dr. Maag’s proprietary ProGrowth Combination F.U.E. approach will give you the softest most natural hairline in the business. When your friends look at you, they won’t notice that you have had a hair transplant, but they will notice how much younger and healthier you look!

Treatments that encourage hair growth

In addition to transplants, Dr. Maag may suggest treatments to promote hair growth, such as:

You don’t have to choose just one treatment. Dr. Maag may suggest a combination of therapies to provide improved hair health and growth.

The above treatments are all backed by scientific research. Dr. Maag does not offer any medication or treatments that he would not offer himself or his own family. And yes, he has had a transplant and uses the medications.
