"HT is used in dermatology for treating diseases of the epidermis, such as psoriasis,
lichen planus, and scleroderma.
Placques were cleared and local oxygenation was increased in patients
receiving leech therapy for these disorders. In patients with lichen
planus derma, HT is associated with decreased inflammation and lesion number, and with pro‐longed remission."

FYI: It takes, on an average, 19 years in USA for the completed research to be accepted by FDA and implemented... tragic, isn't?
What are the Causes of Alopecia?
Current evidence suggests that alopecia areata is caused by an abnormality in the immune system. This particular abnormality leads to autoimmune disease. As a result, the immune system attacks particular tissues of the body. In alopecia areata, for unknown reasons, the body's own immune system attacks the hair follicles and disrupts normal hair formation, causing suppression of growth. The body sends signals for T-cell lymphocytes to attach themselves to hair follicles, causing inflammation on the site and thereby suppressing hair growth.
Baldness or alopecia is a very common condition where hair loss can occur in various parts of the body, but the most common area is the scalp. Men are generally affected more but women can also suffer from this condition.
About 100 hairs are naturally lost from the head every day, though the average human scalp contains between 100,000 and 150,000 hairs. Genetic baldness is caused by the body's failure to produce sufficient new hairs, not by excessive hair loss. It affects men more than women, although women also can develop a characteristic pattern of hair loss. About one quarter of men have started balding by the time they are thirty, and about two thirds are either bald or are balding by 60.
One of the advantages of Hirudotherapy is improvement of blood circulation. Bald spots in your head have less hair density because they have less blood circulation compared to other parts. The proliferation of fungi in the area can be one of the factors that cause the reduced blood flow.
Common cause of alopecia is a fungal infection of the scalp or dandruff, resulting in weakened hair follicles and subsequent hair loss. It has also been found that stress can cause some people to develop hair loss or alopecia.
Treating Alopecia and Baldness with Leech Therapy
Leech therapy is known for an increases of blood circulation and for the "rebuild" of an immune system. When medicinal leeches are applied to thinning or bald areas, the increase of blood circulation helps enhance the concentration and delivery of nutrients that assist in making hair follicles strong, thereby assisting in the promotion of hair re-growth. However, the most crucial and important, most responsible for the changes in our body is the process of elimination of an immunity disorder.
'People suffering alopecia caused by fungal infections or dandruff can also benefit through the antibacterial component in the leeches saliva, which helps combat fungal infections.
