What is Alopecia?
Alopecia is defined as a hair loss disease that affects men, women and children. This disease comes often when the person doesn’t expect it with no initial symptoms. There is no cure for Alopecia as of yet.
No one truly knows the cause but we do know it is an autoimmune disorder that causes the body to attack the hair follicles, there is also a close relation to stress and anxiety disorder as causing Alopecia. Sometimes taking too much medication or a bacterial infection can also be linked to Alopecia.
Alopecia affects approximately 1.7 percent of the population, Alopecia is hereditary, as we have seen both father/son or mother/daughter come in for our procedure together.
Can SMP successfully camouflage alopecia?
At Scalp Aesthetics, we take great joy is performing our procedure on men and women with alopecia. We go over native hair as if it wasn’t there, knowing and planning for the fact that these follicles may fall out as well at some point in the future. In other words, we would usually treat your entire scalp, including the areas where you still have hair.
The benefit of this approach is two-fold – your current alopecia symptoms are completely hidden, and you also have peace of mind in knowing that if the patches do change shape or size, or even shift position, you’re still good to go.
This procedure sometimes may take up to 4 treatments to get the total look the client wants to achieve. The results are incredible, and the looks on our clients faces are extremely rewarding.
