How To Hide Alopecia
The Reality Of Alopecia Treatment.
Affecting men and women of all ages, alopecia is a challenging condition to live with as the symptoms are prominent and difficult to hide. Compounding the issue is a general lack of understanding of what causes alopecia in the first place, and the fact that despite the availability of a handful of ‘remedies’, there is still no cure on the horizon.
How Do People Cope With Alopecia?
Due to the unpredictable nature of this condition, some people endure alopecia for only a short period of time, while for others the symptoms can last a lifetime. Most sufferers try to hide their alopecia by wearing hats or wigs, although for less severe cases some people are able to style their hair differently to conceal the affected areas. Many people with alopecia, particularly adults, have no alternative but to learn to live with their altered appearance.
The Only Guarenteed Solutions
There are just two options for alopecia sufferers that are 100% guaranteed to work – wearing a hair system (a wig), or undergo scalp micropigmentation.
Hair systems are a perfectly viable option, however their upkeep is expensive and the routine can be labourious. Users need two systems so one can be worn as the other is cleaned and renewed, specialist hairdressers are usually required, and the overall cost can run to several thousand pounds each year.
Does This Work For Alopecia Areata & Totalis?
Scalp micropigmentation is a very effective solution for the concealment of all alopecia symptoms, particularly among men who don’t mind shaving their remaining hair. Whether the symptoms are patchy hair loss (areata) or widespread balding (totalis), the treatment process can be adapted to suit the needs of the individual client.
For women, the results are best when the hair has thinned in a ‘diffuse’ pattern but not lost entirely. For a personal assessment of your requirements, please contact us.
