Alopecia is a frequently misunderstood condition since the term refers to hair loss in general; therefore, scalp micropigmentation’s entire purpose is to address all form of alopecia. However, the most recognized forms of alopecia are those that result in total hair loss of the scalp and/or of the entire body. These varieties of alopecia, one being alopecia totalis and the other known as alopecia universalis are believed to be the result of an auto-immune disorder that attacks the hair follicles and renders them entirely dormant. The condition may be permanent or temporary and there is no way for medical practitioners to know or predict what the future holds for an alopecia sufferer. What we do know, however, is that clients with alopecia require a unique and careful approach for doing scalp micropigmentation due to the sensitivity of the skin of the scalp for clients with the condition.
