What is Alopecia?
Strictly speaking Alopecia simply means hair loss. But hair loss comes in a variety of different shapes and sizes, right? The first two types that would immediately spring to mind are probably Male & Female Pattern Baldness. The official terminology of pattern baldness is Androgenetic Alopecia & it affects roughly one in five people worldwide. Androgenetic Alopecia is hormone, age and gender driven and is non-reversible. Albeit toxical treatments are commonplace, Scalp Micropigmentation for Alopecia provides an infinitely better guarantee of success.
However, there’s another debilitating hair loss disorder that lends itself to being a great candidate for SMP treatment, and that’s Alopecia Areata. It’s often known as patch baldness and can affect men, women & children of any age group. Generally speaking, Alopecia Areata patches appear on the scalp and are caused by a disorder in the immune system. It’s often, yet not always, hereditary and the psychological impact it can have on the lives of an Alopecia sufferer is heartbreaking.
