Alopecia – Hair Loss


Alopecia is a hair-loss disease that affects men, women and children. The onset is often sudden, random and frequently recurrent. Although not damaging to physical health, alopecia can have severe effects on quality of life and emotional health through its impact on confidence and self-esteem. Information and support, however, can play a key role in long-term coping strategies.

Alopecia affects approximately 1.7% of the population and both men and women are equally affected. About 25% of people affected have a family history of the condition.

What causes it? The exact cause of alopecia areata isn’t known, although it’s generally agreed it’s a disease of the immune system. There is believed to be a genetic component in some cases and a possible link with stress. In alopecia, your immune system attacks the affected hair follicles by mistake. This halts hair growth (the anagen stage) and causes a move to resting (the telogen phase) where the hairs are then abruptly shed.

What can Permanent cosmetics do for me? With specialist techniques I can give back the definition of eyebrows and eyelashes to restore confidence and make you feel complete again. Treatments for the eyes and brows are variable for each client and are suitable for treating men. Very natural 3D effect eyebrows can be applied to mimic the look of hair and the shape and style of the eyebrows are tailed for you. If you have no eyelashes or very sparse eyelashes, cosmetic tattooing around the eye area can create the illusion of eyelashes and give the eyes more definition.

Why should I choose you? I do work very closely with the NHS and run Hair loss information days at hospitals around Yorkshire. The groups have been organised with the consent and contribution of the Nurses and Consultants at the hospitals. Me and Debbie mace of Hair solutions help, advice and support men and women during what can only be described as a difficult time. I have treated many clients suffering with all kinds of hair loss and they all have expressed how the procedures have completely changed their lives for the better. Please take a look though the client testimonials to hear their amazing stories.
