Treatment of Alopecia Areata Universalis
Treatment of Alopecia Areata Universalis: Alopecia a latin word meaning loss of hair. One group of alopecia (alopecia areata, alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis) involve rapid hair loss. Alopecia areata is the most common and is characterized by the loss of of hair clumps leaving one or more round, smooth bald patches. Usually this occurs quickly and the person experiences no symptoms of discomfort or pain, though in very rare cases a mild redness or mild itching may accompany the loss of hair. Alopecia totalis is when total hair loss on the scalp occurs. This type of alopecia can develop either in a sudden, rapid complete hair loss or at a slower rate similar to alopecia areata. The rarest and most severe type of this group of alopecia is alopecia universalis which is characterized by the the total hair loss on all hair bearing part of the body.
Causes for all types of alopecia are still not fully understood though they are believed to be an autoimmune problem in which lymphocytes (white blood cells) are found in the hair follicles (sacs in where hair begins to develop) in high amounts in people who suffer from alopecia. A number of dermatology researches coming from Cuba asserting that alopecia begins with cellular disturbances at the follicle level which decreases the blood flow to the scalp and stimulates the release of antigen substances triggering the immune system to react by sending a high amount of white blood cells and antibodies making it difficult for the follicles to grow hair. Family history, viruses, infections, certain chemical, hormones and allergens are also thought to be contributors to this condition.
Treatment of Alopecia Areata Universalis:
Treatment in Cuba for this disorder is through the use of Piloactive Lotion and Piloactive Shampoo. The success rate (76% based on results obtained by patients) of both lotion and shampoo is due to the fact that they consist of matter derived from the human placenta that regulate the sebaceous glands (glands responsible for moisturizing skin and hair), stimulates regrowth and strengthen hair roots by promoting better blood circulation to the affected area and improves protein development in the follicles.
Piloactive Lotion should be applied once a day by gently rubbing throughout the scalp. For better results, it is advisable that Piloactive Shampoo should be used at least twice a week.
Piloactive products have no side effects and are safe to treat children, pregnant and nursing women and the elderly.

Starting August 1, 2015, please be advised that CubaHeal will request a $100.00 USD initial deposit for the submission of medical profiles to the Cuban Medical Authorities for assessment. This is due to the fact that it has come to our attention that a number of applicants who have been granted approval for treatment in Cuba were only interested in receiving free consultation and diagnosis. In our opinion this is an unfair conduct since:
1. The Cuban Medical Authorities have taken the time to review and assess the patient’s condition, develop an appropriate program and reserve a spot for the patient to be treated in, and
2. The allocated spot is reserved to the specific patient for an assigned number of days creating a longer waiting period for other patients with a possibility of more urgent need for treatment.
Please be aware of the following facts:
1- Should the Cuban Medical Authorities approve a treatment and should a patient agree on such treatment, the initial deposit will be deducted from the total cost of the program.
2- Should the Cuban Medical Authorities refuse a treatment for a patient due to the extent of his/ her condition, CubaHeal will refund the full amount less the wiring fees.
3- Should a patient reject a treatment program proposed by the Cuban Medical Authorities, CubaHeal reserves the right to retain the deposit and treat it as a consultation fee.
