What is the cause of Alopecia?

When a person’s immune system is not functioning at its optimum level, it can falsely attack the hair follicles instead of foreign viruses and bacteria. This is known as alopecia areata and is a devastating autoimmune disease that causes hair follicles to slow down the production of hair and ultimately it can completely stop the production of hair due to the follicles becoming too small.

Alopecia is not just a problem for the hair follicles on the head, it can also affect the hair follicles in other areas of the body. In some instances, alopecia can subside, and the hair can grow back, however, that is not the case for everyone with alopecia, especially for those with the more advanced alopecia totalis.

There is currently no known cure for alopecia. It often occurs after a virus or serious illness. Scalp micropigmentation for hair restoration offers a welcome solution to anyone suffering from alopecia.

Alopecia Scar Camouflage

Scalp micropigmentation helps to conceal alopecia and alopecia scars by applying tiny pigment dots to the scalp. This is done by one of our qualified scalp micropigmentation specialists who use cutting edge digitally-controlled needles to apply hypoallergenic pigments that mimic your natural hair. Scalp micropigmentation is applied at the epidermal level to ensure that the colour does not fade, ensuring that your SMP treatment provides a permanent solution to alopecia.

There are two main approaches to performing an SMP for alopecia treatment; one is to treat patches created by the alopecia or to treat the entire scalp. However, every case is different and we will carefully discuss the options during your consultation – prior to your treatment.

SMP for alopecia treatment eligibility

Before carrying out any treatment, we offer a comprehensive consultation with a qualified specialist in one of our scalp micropigmentation centres in Wilshire, Surrey or Hampshire. We can provide a solution to the majority of alopecia sufferers. Both men and women suffering with alopecia totalis, alopecia areata, scarring alopecia, traction alopecia  or telogen effluvium.

The main form of alopecia in women leaves hair looking very thin. To counter this, we carry out scalp micropigmentation to increase the density of longer hair, and in more severe cases we create the appearance of a shaved head, with very short hair.

Types of

Alopecia explained

SMP for Androgenetic Alopecia

Commonly occurs in men and women before they reach the age of 40. In men, it presents as a receding hairline, which can then be followed with crown balding. In this instance, we can provide SMP around the top of the forehead to create a natural looking hairline and if required treat the crown area.

In women, androgenetic alopecia normally manifests in thinning across the top of the head rather than the hairline itself. The thinning can progress and result in a complete loss of hair in the affected areas. We are delighted to offer SMP for alopecia treatment that will make the hair appear thicker.

SMP for Alopecia Areata

Triggered by stress or autoimmune conditions alopecia areata presents as hair loss in circular patches. Depending on the severity, we can offer SMP to make the hair appear thicker and lessen the appearance of alopecia areata.

SMP for Alopecia Telogen Effluvium

Hormones can trigger hair loss and therefore alopecia telogen effluvium can present after childbirth or more commonly after chemotherapy. The lifecycle of hair goes through various stages, and those suffering alopecia telogen effluvium have their hair cycle stuck in the “telogen” phase. This is the phase in which the hair follicle is resting or dormant.

We can offer SMP as a solution to those suffering from alopecia telogen effluvium. This will vary depending on the severity of the condition.

SMP for Traction Alopecia

Traction alopecia is brought about by the hair being pulled. Therefore the main causes are hairstyles that pull the hair and also hair extensions (due to their weight). This condition is reversible when caught early. We can offer SMP to help give the appearance of thicker, fuller hair or to treat traction alopecia along the hairline.

No matter what form of alopecia you have our expert team is on hand to provide the best possible solution.
