About Alopecia: Alopecia is an auto-immune disease that results in hairloss on the scalp and in some cases other parts of the body. There are three types of Alopecia, they are commonly refereed to as Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Areata Universalis. The condition develops when the immune system attacks the hair follicles, resulting in variations of hairloss. There is currently no formal cure for alopecia areata, although there are some forms of treatment that can be suggested by doctors to help hair re-grow more quickly. The most common form of alopecia areata treatment is the use of corticosteroids, powerful anti-inflammatory drugs that can aid in suppressing the immune system from progressing its activity. Different Types of Alopecia: Alopecia Areata Alopecia Areata is the most common form of the disease and often presents itself as round, smooth patches of hair loss on the scalp and other parts of the body. Alopecia Areata Totalis Alopecia Areata Totalis is a less common form of the disease that presents itself as total loss of hair on the scalp. Alopecia Areata Universalis Alopecia Areata Universalis is the rarest form of the disease and presents as the loss of hair over the entire scalp and body. How Scalp Micropigmentation Can Help With Alopecia: If you or a loved one are suffering from any form of Alopecia and experiencing loss of hair on the scalp, Scalp Micropigmentation can be a wonderful treatment option. During treatment, specialized ink, microneedles and a technique known as pointillism are used to create the illusion of a fuller head of hair. Each micro impression mimics a shaved hair follicle, giving the appearance of a full head of hair.
