Our hair plays a very important role in how we express ourselves, it can also be our personal signature, however male pattern baldness is a very common condition affecting around 6.5 million men in the UK. According to the NHS, male pattern baldness will affect half of all men by the age of 50, and the thinning and receding of hair would usually start around their twenties. In addition, the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, revealed that 40% of men will experience noticeable hair loss by the age of thirty five. Furthermore, according to the NHS over 8 million women in the UK over 25 are experiencing hair loss, that is around 1 in 5 women, and hereditary hair loss with age is the most common cause of baldness otherwise known as Alopecia.
Although we shed about 100 hairs in a day as a result of brushing or washing which is normal, there are also other factors that causes hair loss, the most common cause of baldness is Hereditary hair loss with age, however it has been found that a deficiency in important vitamins like vitamin B could also be a reason for hair loss. Biotin is a part of the vitamin B family, and is an essential vitamin that helps maintain healthy hair.
Alopecia Arreata and Alopecia Universalis are two forms of Alopecia, Alopecia Universalis is a severe form of baldness and it involves the complete loss of body hair including eyelashes, eyebrows, armpit hair and pubic hair which can lead to a devastatingly low state of mind. Alopecia Arreata on the other hand is a condition that causes hair to fall out in patches. Both are considered auto immune diseases because auto immune diseases essentially attack its own body. Another auto immune disease that can cause hair loss is Lupus; Lupus is a disease that attacks its own tissues and organs, and hair loss caused by lupus may cause lesions in the scalp resulting in permanent hair loss.
In a study in The British Journal of Dermatology "Onset age of Alopecia Arreata is an important factor in the association with different comorbid psychiatric diseases. In addition to cosmetic impact, which may bring about anxiety or depression, stress neuroendocrine immunology may play an important role in the pathogenesis of both AA and psychiatric disorders" (S-Y. Chu et al., Medscape 2012). Hair loss can have a sever impact on the mental health, and it may cause depression, anxiety and social phobia.The society we live in plays a major part in the effects and significance of having good hair, these can be seen in TV shows, Films, Music Videos and Advertisments. For instance, on the very famous E! channel reality show, Keeping up With the Kardashians, there was an episode that featured Robert Kardashian, from probably the most famous family in the world, dealing with his insecurities as he is facing the reality of his thinning hair. The episode follows Rob as he goes to a hair specialist for a consult, where he is adviced about ways he could possibly save his thinning hair.
There is currently no cure for alopecia. However, there are treatments that may help hair grow back more quickly and that can prevent future hair loss, as well as unique ways to cover up the hair loss. Popular Hair Transplant surgeries like the Fut/strip hair transplant, which is the removal of a strip of donor skin, where the surgeon will extract individual follicular units to be transferred to the areas of hair loss, can be a solution for loss of hair. Unfortunately in a lot of hair transplant cases scarring can occur. which is why the best and safest solution for hair loss is Scalp Micro pigmentation. Scalp Micro Pigmentation is a non invasive treatment that is used to deposit pigment into the scalp, which will as a result, create the illusion of tiny hair follicles. Unlike more invasive treatments like hair transplants which can leave visible scarring, Scalp Micro Pigmentation can even be used as a corrective treatment for scars. Scalp Micro Pigmentation will reduce the appearance of scars because, the treatment will add a base layer of colour which will darken over time, and eventually there may be no evidence of scarring, it is highly likely that more than one session would completely cover the scar, but the overall result will give the appearance of thicker and denser hair.
Scalp Micro pigmentation Treatment is a relatively new technique, and it is used to create the illusion of shaved hair, stubble, or greater density in hair-bearing areas that have lost hair or require augmentation. Scalp Micro Pigmentation has helped thousands of people to gain their confidence, and it has significantly improved their mental health and self esteem. For people with receding hairlines, Scalp Micro Pigmentation will extend the hairline further creating the illusion of full hair. When hair starts to thin, the scalp becomes more visible and Scalp Micro Pigmentation can provide a darker tone in the hair which will give the hair a thicker and healthier look and the result is almost always instant.
