Most Alopecia treatments are limited and offer many minimal or temporary benefits. Scalp micropigmentation can be used to give you the illusion of long term hair.
Alopecia is the collective name for hair loss. It comes in many different forms and can affect both men and women. Alopecia can have a devastating effect on a person's confidence and self-esteem as it often strikes immediately and without warning. Depending on which form of alopecia the individual suffers from, symptoms can range from a single hair loss on the scalp and beard area to multiple patches or – in the worst cases – complete hair loss from the scalp, face and body.
There are three degrees of alopecia areata:
1. Alopecia areata : is the 'spot-like' baldness, which can occur anywhere on the body. Usually caused by excessive pulling or tension on the hair over a long period of time, for example by wearing tails or braids continuously.
2. Alopecia totalis : the hair in particular stops growing.
3. Alopecia universalis : no hair growth at all, neither scalp nor body hair.
SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION & ALOPECIA AREATA
When alopecia strikes, it often has emotional repercussions and can affect your confidence.
Scalp micropigmentation is a treatment that hides the damage of alopecia. It can work on patients with both hair, by applying natural pigments, section by section, as well as on a shaved scalp.
The beauty of this treatment is that it is naturally holistic and non-invasive. Which means any prescription medication used to promote hair growth will continue to work after treatment.
Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a contemporary treatment that provides an optical effect of a full head of hair. By placing tiny dots of ink just below the skin's surface, the illusion of a shaved head effect is created.
Scalp micropigmentation can also be used on areas of the head where the hair is thinning. You need densification to create the illusion of thicker hair.
Scalp micropigmentation is a treatment in which pigment is placed just below the surface of the skin with an extremely small needle. This creates 'dots' of pigment to mimic a shaved hair follicle.
Combined with thousands of 'dots' applied by a specialist, the result is the appearance of a close-shaven look.
The ink is matched to your existing hair color and you can just wash and swim for a week after the procedure.
This process is ideal for anyone suffering from male pattern baldness, alopecia or thinning hair. In some circumstances, it is also possible to maintain a longer hair length. Please contact me so I can assess your suitability for this option.
