Alopecia Areata -What are the causes?
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease, whereby your immune system which is designed for protecting your body from bacteria and viruses, erroneously attacks your hair follicles instead.
Scalp Micropigmentation Alopecia
There are other illnesses that can cause hair loss, but alopecia areata will cause your hair follicles to diminish in size and slow down the hair production itself. The result, sadly, is the loss of hair on either the scalp, the body, or both. These can be small circular patches, often not extending any further. However, it can also attack to the extent that it is all over, from head to toe. On the plus side, the stem cells will carry on supplying the actual follicles with new cells. This gives the follicle the constant potential for regrowing new hair – but it may not be a quick process.
There are different alopecia types:
