There are many causes of hair loss, both temporary and permanent. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Androgenetic alopecia (AGA), also known as male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness, is the most common cause of hair loss in both men and women. It is a genetic condition that is caused by a combination of factors, including hormones, genetics, and aging.
  • Telogen effluvium is a type of hair loss that is caused by a stressful event, such as surgery, childbirth, a serious illness, or a major diet change. It is usually temporary, and the hair will grow back once the stressor is gone.
  • Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder that causes hair to fall out in round patches. It can be temporary or permanent, and there is no cure.
  • Thyroid problems, such as hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, can cause hair loss.
  • Medications, such as chemotherapy drugs, blood thinners, and lithium, can cause hair loss as a side effect.
  • Nutritional deficiencies, such as iron deficiency, can cause hair loss.
  • Physical trauma, such as burns or scalp injuries, can cause hair loss.

If you are experiencing hair loss, it is important to see a doctor to determine the cause. There are many treatments available for hair loss, depending on the cause.

Remember, you are not alone. Hair loss is a common problem, and there are many resources available to help you. With time and patience, you can learn to cope with hair loss and live a full and happy life.

  • Talk to your doctor. It is important to see a doctor to determine the cause of your hair loss. Once you know the cause, you can start to treat it.
  • Manage stress. Stress can trigger hair loss, so it is important to find ways to manage stress. This could involve exercise, relaxation techniques, or talking to a therapist.
  • Take care of your hair. Use gentle shampoos and conditioners, and avoid heat styling your hair too often. You should also avoid pulling on your hair or putting it in tight ponytails or braids.
  • Consider hair loss treatments. There are a number of hair loss treatments available, including medications, scalp micropigmentation, and hair transplants. Talk to your doctor about which treatment is right for you.
  • Be patient. Hair loss can be a frustrating experience, but it is important to be patient. It may take some time to find a treatment that works for you.

Hair loss doesn’t just affect your scalp. Losing your eyebrows and eyelashes can be just as upsetting (or even more so). We offer permanent makeup solutions for eyebrows if this is affecting you.

What treatments are available?

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a cosmetic procedure that uses tiny dots of pigment to create the appearance of fuller hair. It is sometimes also called a hair tattoo.

The procedure is performed by a trained technician who uses a handheld device to deposit the pigment into the scalp. The dots are placed in a pattern that mimics the natural appearance of hair follicles, giving the illusion of a fuller head of hair.

SMP is a non-surgical procedure, so there is no downtime or scarring. The results are typically permanent, but they may fade over time.

SMP is a good option for people who are experiencing hair loss or thinning hair. It can also be used to cover scars or birthmarks on the scalp.

Here are some of the benefits of scalp micropigmentation:
