Alopecia Areata. Also known as patch balding and spot baldness, it is a condition characterized by loss of hair which falls outside of the brackets of “regular” activity. And this debilitating condition can affect both men and women alike. Time over, alopecia results in just a few bald spots across the scalp which are roughly coin-sized. It’s believed to be a condition resulting from a breach within the immune system which attacks healthy hair follicles.

There is little that’s known about alopecia and research is pretty slim pickings. However, what is known is the risk factor of falling into the unfortunate hands of this psychologically distressing disorder are genetics. It tends to run in families. And sadly, no known cure is available for the condition. Efforts can be made to treat the condition such as cortisone injections and topical treatments, but the only guaranteed solution is concealing the problem with SMP.

Scalp micropigmentation is an avant-garde treatment which involves natural pigments being implanted onto the problem sites affected by alopecia. In more extreme cases, the entire scalp can be treated – however, this is often a prerequisite for the condition.

For anyone suffering from Alopecia Areata, it’s pretty clear they’re going to have questions. But the two most common questions are how SMP works and also if it will affect healthy and existing hair follicles. To answer simply the latter of these two questions is quick so we’ll begin here. No, it won’t affect the existing and healthy follicles, under any circumstances. And in addition, all prescribed treatments to promote hair growth will continue to work.

Scalp micropigmentation is a treatment where natural pigments are meticulously implanted underneath the waterproof and outer layer of your skin. This outer layer is called the Epidermis. Underneath this outer layer is the Dermis and pigments must be implanted at the very upper part of this skin layer known as the papillary layer. Once the healing process has taken place, pigments will leave a semi-permanent marking which is your imitation hair follicles.
