Hair loss associated with alopecia areata

Alopecia areata is a form of non-scarring hair loss in which bald patches develop on the hairy head or in the beard area without any visible abnormalities on the scalp. The cause is not exactly known, but it is believed to be an autoimmune disease.

Camouflage is often the only remaining solution for alopecia areata

A treatment that is increasingly being used to combat hair loss is microhair pigmentation (MHP). The aim is to conceal the visible consequences of hair loss. This is usually not possible with a hair transplant.

About 15 years ago this treatment was introduced in Belgium (Prohairclinic). Microhair pigmentation is a highly advanced, non-surgical technique. Using an extremely fine needle and state-of-the-art equipment, the hair stubble on your scalp is simulated.

This looks like a well-groomed, shaved hairstyle. The end result is indistinguishable from the original due to the use of natural pigments, making it ideal for camouflage skin diseases such as alopecia areata.

Microhair pigmentation has several benefits. The method was specially developed for use on sensitive scalps. By extremely fine hair pigmentation needles a successful end result is possible. The advantage of microhair pigmentation is also that you can use the treatment even if baldness is at an advanced stage. This is in contrast to hair transplants, which require you to have sufficient hair follicles.

Examples of microhair pigmentation in advanced hair loss

In addition to concealing baldness and thinning hair, microhair pigmentation treatment is a solution if you want to conceal scars on the scalp or if you are dealing with Alopecia areata.

Specialized hair clinics for microhair pigmentation work with semi-permanent pigments. This makes it possible to further adjust your hairline in the future. The applied pigments fade in an extremely natural way.

Microhair pigmentation can therefore be a good solution for people suffering from alopecia areata. As part of thorough preparation, it is important to inform yourself in advance and find out about the treatment itself.

Sabine Dillen, hair pigmentation specialist with 20 years of experience in the field, says: “Pseudopelade by Debrocq was the biggest challenge in my career.” Normally treatments last 3-4 hours, but this repair took 4 treatments out of 7-8 hours.”

Belgium is also the global cradle of FUE hair transplantTop doctors. However, you can hardly ask for a failed hair transplant to be repaired no use and have long waiting lists.

Doctors without training and experience often mislead their patients, often for purely financial reasons. On the other hand, some patients do not look for specialists with experience and a track record.

Dr. Hair transplant surgeon Bisanga: “Some patients take more time to choose their car than to find out about experienced hair transplant doctors.”

2 reasons why it is extremely important to consult an experienced hair transplant surgeon

  1. The medical association cannot intervene because it is only responsible for deontological problems.

  2. Victims have hardly any legal options, also because foreign clinics and doctors are often involved.

When the hair situation can no longer be restored by surgical restorative treatment, doctors often refer to Specialists in micro hair pigmentation. Microhair pigmentation recommended by doctors. < ; /p>

Microhair pigmentation is still relatively unknown in Belgium compared to hair transplantation.

However, more and more dermatologists and doctors are recommending microhair pigmentation treatments for advanced genetic hair loss, as well as as a camouflage solution for various skin diseases, including alopecia areata and Pseudopelade of Debrocq.
