Treating Alopecia at BeauSynergy
Alopecia Areata is the medical term for hair loss and affects men and women of all ages, including in childhood. An estimated eight million women in the UK have Alopecia, with many more thought to be suffering in silence.
Alopecia occurs when the immune system attacks the hair follicles, causing the hair to come out. It is a lifelong disorder, with most individuals experiencing that patches of hair loss may come and go with various triggers, including stress and medication. The most common forms of Alopecia are hereditary, however hair loss disorders are of course more complicated than this and can be influenced by many factors, including the endocrine system, metabolism, drugs, and nutrition – to name just a few.
Emotionally, the anxiety and embarrassment that can come with Alopecia can have a negative effect, with many sufferers choosing to withdraw from and avoid everyday activities. There is currently no cure for Alopecia, resulting in many individuals opting for non-surgical treatment such as Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP).
What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a treatment involving the careful administration of pigment to the skin, delivering the appearance of small, shaved hair on the scalp. SMP adds density to thin hair, provides the permanent solution to bald and thinning hair, and causes less discomfort and fewer side effects than a hair transplant; it takes just a couple of treatment sessions achieve optimal results, with each session taking just a couple of hours. Once completed, there is practically no recovery time necessary, allowing you to resume your normal, daily routine almost immediately.
