Alopecia

Scalp Micropigmentation for Alopecia

Alopecia is a condition which causes the loss of hair on parts of the head and body where hair would normally grow. Alopecia can affect men and women, and depending on the type of alopecia, can be caused or exacerbated by numerous factors. There are several different types of alopecia, all of which have their own specific causes and effects, including:

ALOPECIA AREATA

An autoimmune condition which causes hair loss in circular patches. Hair loss can occur at any point in your life, and in many cases, hair loss is brought on or worsened by stress, trauma, or a change in an individual’s hormones.

ALOPECIA TOTALIS

Alopecia totalis is a type of alopecia areata, and describes cases in which there is total or near-total hair loss on an individual’s scalp. It accounts for as much as 5% of patients who have hair loss caused by an autoimmune disorder.

ALOPECIA UNIVERSALIS

Like alopecia areata and alopecia totalis, alopecia universalis is a type of hair loss caused autoimmune disorder, and describes the loss of all hair on the body. A rarer form of alopecia, this type accounts for 1% of all alopecia cases.

TRACTION ALOPECIA

Traction alopecia is a type of hair loss that can occur when hair is frequently pulled or strained, as can occur in individuals whose hair is regularly pulled in braids or weaves, or in those who make use of hair extensions. If caught early enough, hair may be able to re-grow after a period of time.

How Scalp Micropigmentation Works

Unlike other treatment options that can be expensive and unreliable, scalp micropigmentation provides a safe and affordable way for people with any type or degree of alopecia to mask the effects of the condition and create the appearance of a full head of hair.
Scalp micropigmentation injects dots of pigment under the skin of your scalp to create the illusion of hair that has recently been shaved and is beginning to grow back.
