Alopecia Areata and Totalis

Scalp Micropigmentation for Alopecia Areata and Totalis

The primary symptom of alopecia totalis is complete loss of all head hair. This form of alopecia can begin as alopecia areata. You may start off with small patches of hair loss. These patches spread over time until the entire head is bald.
A skin condition that causes hair loss

Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune condition and causes patchy hair loss. It can result in a single bald patch or extensive patchy hair loss. Patches can appear and disappear but SMP can cover the areas effectively, giving you back up from the worrying signs but not preventing any re-growth.

Alopecia totalis is a more advanced form of alopecia areata and results in total loss of all hair on the scalp. As an auto-immune condition the skin can reject the pigment but we work carefully over 4-5 sessions to ensure that scalp micropigmentation solves this unfortunate hair loss issue.

We customize every alopecia camouflage treatment to suit the needs of each clients individual circumstances. For example, in some cases involving clients with alopecia areata, we may recommend that your entire scalp area is treated. This depends on whether or not your patches of hair loss are likely to change shape, size or position in the future.

What Causes Alopecia Areata & Totalis?

Alopecia areata is a disease that happens when the immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair loss. Hair follicles are the structures in skin that form hair. While hair can be lost from any part of the body, alopecia areata usually affects the head and face. Hair typically falls out in small, round patches about the size of a quarter, but in some cases, hair loss is more extensive.
