Scalp Micropigmentation as a solution for alopecia
Albeit alopecia is the general and medical term for hair loss there are a wide variety of different alopecias, with the most common being Alopecia Areata. This condition is characterized by small, coin-sized discs of hair loss, appearing across the scalp. However, it can also affect men’s beards, eyelashes and also eyebrows. At the onset of Alopecia Areata, occasionally, the hair will extemporaneously regrow. However, with others, it can increase to a level that’s distressing and difficult to live with.
Alopecia Areata is strongly believed to be an autoimmune disorder which results in your own immune system attacking the healthy cells you have in your body. The purpose of your immune system is to create white cells which are called lymphocytes and also antibodies. These are used to protect against bacterias and viruses. An autoimmune disease is when these are breached and the results can be wide and varied.
For anyone suffering from Alopecia Areata, the reason they begin to experience the circular patches of hair loss is that the white blood cells gather around the follicle and thereafter mistake them as unhealthy. With certain cases, the attacks can certainly be mild. However, with others, they can be distinctly pronounced and noticeable. It’s pretty common for anyone suffering from this disorder to be prescribed with topical treatments or therapy to promote renewed hair growth, but the only guarantee of successful treatments is camouflaging the issue with scalp micropigmentation.
