Scalp Micropigmentation for Alopecia Camo
Differing degrees of baldness affects more than 3 million people every year around the US. The most common cause is due to hereditary inheritance, usually affecting men as they grow older. However, both genders can experience baldness and hair thinning, stemming from lifestyle changes, hormonal fluctuations, and autoimmune conditions. Many people choose different ways to treat alopecia, from wearing wigs to expensive hair transplant procedures. Compared to other temporary and costly methods, scalp micropigmentation is a solution that provides better appearance and permanency.
Types of Alopecia
There are several different types of Alopecia, with different levels of scalp micropigmentation necessary to achieve an improved hairline and hair density. Alopecia that causes thinning of hair or small patches of baldness may not require scalp micropigmentation that covers the entire scalp.
- Androgenic Alopecia: Also known as male/female pattern baldness, has a hereditary cause and is most common.
- Traction Alopecia: Hair loss as a result of tight hairstyles that strain hair follicles over time
- Alopecia Areata: An autoimmune disease resulting in patches of hair loss
- Alopecia Totalis: An autoimmune disease resulting in total or nearly total hair loss on the scalp
- Alopecia Universalis: An autoimmune disease resulting in total hair loss on the entire body
How Does Scalp Micropigmentation Treat Alopecia?
By applying pigments in the appearance of short hair follicles, scalp micropigmentation can be used to replicate hair on your scalp. Larger patches of baldness or complete baldness require greater applications of scalp micropigmentation and create a buzz cut appearance as a result. Hair thinning in certain areas like the top of the head can also use scalp micropigmentation to create improved hair density that blends in with existing hair.
