Scalp Micropigmentation as a Solution for


Albeit alopecia is the general and medical term for hair loss there are a wide variety of different alopecias, with the most common being Alopecia Areata. This condition is characterized by small, coin-sized discs of hair loss, appearing across the scalp. However, it can also affect men’s beards, eyelashes and also eyebrows. At the onset of Alopecia Areata, occasionally, the hair will extemporaneously regrow. However, with others, it can increase to a level that’s distressing and difficult to live with.

Alopecia Areata is strongly believed to be an autoimmune disorder which results in your own immune system attacking the healthy cells you have in your body. The purpose of your immune system is to create white cells which are called lymphocytes and also antibodies. These are used to protect against bacterias and viruses. An autoimmune disease is when these are breached and the results can be wide and varied.

For anyone suffering from Alopecia Areata, the reason they begin to experience the circular patches of hair loss is that the white blood cells gather around the follicle and thereafter mistake them as unhealthy. With certain cases, the attacks can certainly be mild. However, with others, they can be distinctly pronounced and noticeable. It’s pretty common for anyone suffering from this disorder to be prescribed with topical treatments or therapy to promote renewed hair growth, but the only guarantee of successful treatments is camouflaging the issue with scalp micropigmentation.

Alopecia and

Scalp Micropigmentation

Women’s hair loss can happen for a multitude of different reasons. Alopecia Areata is where disc-like patches will form across the scalp, often moving from zone to zone. Then there is complete hair loss known as Alopecia Totallis or Universalis where hair loss is extreme. The final and most common cause for female hair loss is actually female pattern baldness. It takes a different form to that of males where there is an overall diffuse thinning or a separation of the parting.

Scalp micropigmentation is the ideal solution for all of the above types of alopecia and here at Inkrease we can tailor treatments to ensure the best-fit solution for your particular condition.

Types of Alopecia and

How can we Treat Them?

Alopecia is seriously multi-faceted. It can be Areata where there are discs of hair loss moving across the scalp. There is also Alopecia Totalis which is an advanced form of Alopecia Areata and characterized by hair loss over the entire scalp. Then Universalis which is even more advanced and affects the entire body. Yet there are other forms of Alopecia. Some of which are much less noticeable but nonetheless, they are still distressing and are prime candidates for the benefits of scalp micropigmentation treatment.

If we step aside from the most common form of Alopecia, male or female pattern baldness, you find another type of Alopecia which is also surprisingly common. Traction Alopecia arises due to excessive tension or pulling on the shafts of hair owing to certain hairstyles and is particularly seen with cornrows or tight chignons. Hair loss will occur and depend on the direction in which the hair is pulled and stretched. Should traction alopecia be prolonged, it can, and will, halt new follicle development resulting in a permanent hair loss situation.
