HAIR LOSS SOLUTIONS

What is hair loss?

 

Hair loss, also known as alopecia or baldness, involves the loss of hair from a part of the head or body. The severity of hair loss can vary. 

Common types of hair loss are: 

  • Male-pattern hair loss,

  • Female-pattern hair loss,

  • Alopecia areata,

  • And telogen effluvium

Male-pattern hair loss is caused by a combination of genetics and male hormones. The cause of female-pattern hair loss is unclear. Alopecia areata is due to autoimmune and Telogen effluvium is typically a physically or psychologically stressful event. 

Less common causes of hair loss without inflammation or scarring are:

  • The pulling out of hair,

  • Certain medication like chemotherapy,

  • HIV/AIDS

  • Hypothyroidism and malnutrition.

 

Why does it matter?

 

Hair loss can be damaging for confidence and self-esteem. It can cause mental health struggles or exacerbate existing struggles.

 

Are there solutions to hair loss?

 

We offer 2 different hair loss solutions, Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) or hair replacement systems. These are available to both men and women, to help bring back their confidence. 

 

How will I know which option to choose?

 

You will have a consultation prior to either option, it is during that consultation that you and your (Hair dresser?) will discuss your options and which would be best for you. 

 

What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

 

Scalp Micropigmentation is the use of equipment and techniques to inject pigment into the skin, it gives the illusion of hair and can make hair look thicker.

 

What are hair replacement systems?

 

Hair replacement systems are a process of incorporating scalp preparation, hair system fitting, styling and maintaining. But it involves using a hair system made of human hair which is attached to a base. This base is then attached to an individual’s head, creating a natural flawless finish..
