What is alopecia?
Alopecia is a condition which causes partial or complete hair loss and can be temporary or permanent. No-one really knows the cause of alopecia, but one thing we know for sure is that many of those who suffer with this condition lack confidence and have low self esteem. Hair loss or baldness (technically known as alopecia is a loss of hair from the head or body. Baldness can refer to general hair loss or androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness). Some types of baldness can be caused by alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder. The extreme forms of alopecia areata are alopecia totalis, which involves the loss of all head hair, and alopecia universalis, which involves the loss of all hair from the head and the body. Micropigmentation can be used very effectively to improve the appearance of the areas which have suffered with hair loss such as the eyebrows in this case, which is demonstrated in our pictures above.
