Understanding Alopecia

A Comprehensive Guide to Alopecia and its Different Types

Alopecia is a condition that results in hair loss, with numerous unique kinds leading to varying degrees of hair loss on the scalp, face, and body. Alopecia Androgenic, also known as pattern hair loss, Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis, and Alopecia Universalis are a few of these types.

Alopecia is generally classified based on its cause and effect. The most common type of alopecia is androgenic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness, which disproportionately affects men over the age of 50. It is believed to be caused by changes in male sex hormones, and many cases are hereditary.

Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune condition characterized by circular spots of hair loss that can occur at any age and is often worsened by factors such as work stress, the death of a loved one, and poor health.

Hair Loss and Baldness

Regaining Confidence with SMP

Alopecia Totalis is a condition defined by the complete loss of hair from the scalp, while Alopecia Universalis is another autoimmune condition defined by total or near-total hair loss from all over the body. It is a rare condition that accounts for approximately 1% of all alopecia cases.

Traction Alopecia is more common in females who have their hair pulled back in braids or under weaves, and it also includes people suffering from trichotillomania, a compulsive condition characterized by excessive hair plucking. The strain of this constant pulling causes stress on the hair roots around the edges, causing them to fall out. With proper care, this condition can be reversed if identified in its early stages.

Alopecia Telogen Effluvium is a condition that involves more than just hair shedding, with a general thinning that usually resolves itself over time. In most cases, it is treatable.

Scalp micropigmentation produces instant yet gradual results, providing visible results in hair loss treatment. It offers long-lasting concealment for baldness, covering where it is lacking and regaining confidence. The healing time is short, and maintenance is easy. The remaining steps of the procedure will be taken care of once the initial treatment plan is finished. The pigments do not wash off easily, remaining present to provide camouflage and coverage where needed.
