Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that causes the hair to fall out suddenly and unexpectedly. There are many different types of alopecia including androgenetic, areata, totalis and universalis. These are all types of alopecia that has scalp hair loss as a symptom.
Androgenetic alopecia is better known as pattern baldness or hair loos; this is where hair loss occurs in men and women in pattern formation, for men on a scalp of 1 to 7 and for women on a scale of 1 to 3.
Alopecia Areata is where the hair loss appears in patches. These patches can come and go, but if they stay, it is common for the patches to connect and turn into a more severe case of alopecia.
Alopecia Totalis is loss of hair on the head and face.
Alopecia Universalis is hair loss across the whole body, including the scalp.
Scalp micropigmentation is a fantastic solutions to alopecia. While other hair loss treatment can be invasive and involve surgery, scalp micropigmentation is an innovative treatment that requires little to no downtime and the procedure has been known to cause people to fall asleep. Microdots of pigment are deposited across the hair loss area of the scalp, whether that be patches or a full head, the alopecia symptoms are then camouflaged, leaving you with a full head of hair and gleaming with confidence.
