scalp micropigmentation provides relief for men and women suffering the effects of alopecia
Alopecia takes many forms. It is frequently recurrent, often aggressive and notoriously unpredictable. Alopecia symptoms often present themselves during childhood, then disappear for years or even decades, before recurring again during adulthood. The symptoms can change, becoming more or less aggressive or the affected area can alter position. Sometimes the symptoms go away on their own but they can often last a lifetime.
Unfortunately whilst remedies are available, their effectiveness is extremely limited and there is currently no known cure.
Scalp micropigmentation provides the ONLY permanent, guaranteed solution for alopecia, with thousands of sufferers finding relief after their treatments.
what causes alopecia?
The medical world does not as yet have a definitive answer to this question. The symptoms are caused by the body treating hair follicles as if they were foreign matter and rejecting them, but what causes the body to behave this way is unknown.
There is some correlation between alopecia and external factors like stress, medications and arguably some genetic factors, however no conclusive research has surfaced.
how can scalp micropigmentation help?
For clients who are prepared to shave, we use scalp micropigmentation to replicate the appearance of a full head of shaved hair. Depending on the nature of the condition, we may treat only the areas that are directly affected. Where the symptoms are more changeable, we often treat the entire scalp to provide peace of mind for the client.
For those who would prefer to keep their hair longer, including most of our female clients, we assess each situation on an individual basis for suitability, and approach each treatment with a specific plan in place agreed with the client beforehand.
what types of alopecia can be concealed?
Depending on the approach we agree with our client, all alopecia types can be addressed. These include alopecia areata (patchy hair loss), alopecia totalis (total head hair loss), traction alopecia (caused by pulling of the hair into tight hairstyles) and other forms such as telogen effluvium (diffuse thinning).
