Alopecia Areata and Scalp Micropigmentation

Alopecia areata is one of the most challenging to live with. Although there is no cure for alopecia, scalp micropigmentation can address the visible symptoms of this particularly aggressive form.

hair tattoo before and afterAlopecia areata is symptomised by patchy hair loss. There is some evidence that the condition is hereditary, therefore you are more likely to experience the symptoms if it runs in the family. Often the sufferer notices hair loss in a very small and well-defined area, however the affected area commonly changes shape, grows in size or shifts position. In severe cases, patches become more numerous and can even develop into alopecia totalis, the total loss of all head hair.

How can scalp micropigmentation help?

The unpredictable nature of alopecia areata is what makes the condition difficult to cope with. Losing hair is one thing, but rapidly changing symptoms can make it extremely challenging to cover the affected areas. This is equally difficult to deal with for both men and women.

The scalp micropigmentation process should usually be used to treat the entire scalp, not just the affected area. This means that as the symptoms change, a camouflage is already in place so you no longer need to worry so much about the condition. Sometimes we treat a smaller area, but this is usually the case where the symptoms have remained unchanged for an extended period of time.
