Also, androgenic alopecia that occurs in both men and women, but with a different clinical picture. The treatment consists in eliminating the potential responsible factors and restarting the hair life cycle using topical minoxidil and autologous mesotherapy.


At the end of the treatment in the above cases, hair regrowth is observed. However, in cases such as Erythematosus lupus or neglected cases of hair loss, reappraisal may not be observed as scar tissue develops in the hair follicles area.
