People with hair loss due to alopecia and other dermatologic conditions may find their condition distressing to live with. If they don’t want wigs or the worry of one slipping, they could undergo micropigmentation instead.
Alopecia is a skin and immune system disorder wherein the immune system attacks the hair follicles, causing hair loss. There are several types of hair loss. Alopecia areata is when hair is lost in patches. Alopecia totalis is when all the hair on the scalp is lost and Alopecia universalis is when all hair all over the body is lost. People with a history of eczema, asthma, diabetes, and other autoimmune diseases are more likely to get Alopecia.
Alopecia can occur at any age. It runs in families and is often triggered by stress. The young age at which it appears can affect the confidence of people who have it. But there is a solution: full scalp micropigmentation in Las Vegas and other locations across the U.S.
Micropigmentation for “Realistic Hair”
Scalp micropigmentation is permanent makeup. It involves injecting tiny amounts of pigment into the scalp (in a way similar to having a tattoo), although it uses different inks to a tattoo and is less invasive. A cosmetic enhancement specialist can create the appearance of hair that has been shaved and is starting to grow back. Two or three sessions are normally needed for a full effect.
The result lasts a lifetime, although colors may fade over time. Top ups can be done to maintain the effect.
Micropigmentation for Effortless Makeup
Micropigmentation can also be used to create fuller eyebrows, a defined hairline and subtle eye and lip makeup. This is ideal for people with physical conditions, such as arthritis, who may find putting their own makeup on difficult.
Alopecia and other hair loss disorders can lower self-esteem, but full micropigmentation can create a realistic impression of hair using surgical needles and natural pigmentation for a look that’s far better than a wig.
