How to Hide Alopecia
– Scalp Micropigmentation
What is alopecia?
Alopecia Areata is a condition that causes hair to fall out in patches. These patches may be small and unnoticeable at first, but if they connect, this becomes more noticeable. You may also suffer total hair loss. Alopecia can be a sudden onset of hair loss or can develop slowly over time.
Hair loss can occur on other parts of the face, such as eyelashes, eyebrows or beard, as well as other places on the body. Alopecia can affect men, women, and children, and can occur multiple times, with the hair growing back in between.
What causes alopecia?
Alopecia is an autoimmune condition, where the immune system mistakes healthy cells for foreign ones, believing that it is defending the body against a virus or bacteria. Alopecia causes the immune system to attack the hair follicles, causing them to become smaller and stop producing hair. This results in hair loss.
It’s unknown exactly what causes alopecia, but it often occurs in people with history of other autoimmune conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis or type 1 diabetes.
Can alopecia be treated?
There’s currently no known cure for alopecia, but there are some treatments to try and help slow the hair loss or help hair grow back. This treatment is often trial and error, due to the unpredictability of the condition, and for some people treatment has no effect.

We know that alopecia can be very upsetting and affect your confidence and self-esteem. The good news is that scalp micropigmentation can be very effective in disguising the bald patches left by alopecia. It also does not prevent any regrowth that may happen.
