Scalp micropigmentation as a solution for Alopecia Areata

We would like to inform you about the types and origin of Alopecia Areata and on how scalp micropigmentation can help the client to recover their image and their self-esteem.

Alopecia Areata

Alopecia Areata is an illness which consists of hair loss. In general, it often presents in the form of round and oval-shaped areas without hair on the scalp and the beard.

Hair loss can be complete (in which case it is called “Alopecia Totalis”), can be all through the surface of the body ("Alopecia Universalis") or can appear in stripes.

Alopecia Areata can affect both men and women and can appear at any period in life.

The origin of Alopecia Areata:

- Genetic predisposition (at a rate of 10-27%)

- Psychosomatic factors:

1- An event in the life of the patient (surgical interventions, etc.)
2- Personality features (nervousness, introversion, etc.)
3- Acute traumas (accidents, etc.)
4- Loss of a close person (death of a relative, divorce, etc.)

This illness does not have grave consequences for physical health and 50% of the patients suffering from the illness recover the hair in less than a year, with 10% of individuals with a severe or very severe condition. The biggest problem that occurs in this illness is at the psychological level,many patients need psychological treatment to interact socially and overcome any deep problems with their personal image.

What help can Pigmentalia provide?

With our HSS technique, we apply pigments throughout the entire body until we make all the skin have a uniform colour. When new hair grows, not only is the difference noticed, but, thanks to the homogeneous distribution of the pigment, the hair on the scalp seems thicker.

Our porous pigments respect hair growth and the conditions of the follicle and for this reason, scalp micropigmentation is a solution during the period of the manifestation of the illness.

Scalp micropigmentation is a solution to restore your image damaged by Alopecia Areata. It is a process that contributes to your self-esteem.
