SMP for Alopecia

Types of Alopecia

  • Alopecia Areata (AA) - an auto immune deficiancy which caused patchy hair loss in one or several random spots on the head. Patches can migrate or remain in the same area.
     

  • Universalis (AU) - the most advanced form of alopecia areata and results in total loss of all hair on the entire body, including eyelashes and eyebrows. 
     

  • Totalis (AT) - a more advanced form of alopecia areata and results in total loss of hair on the scalp.
     

  • Barbae (B) -  localised alopecia areata to the beard area. It can be a single bald patch or more extensive hair loss across the entire beard area. The patches can even be visible after shaving, the main reason men opt for facial micropigmentation.
     

  • Traction Alopecia (TA) - usually due to excessive pulling or tension of the hair as a result of specific hairstyles. It's common in women who wear hair extensions and also in Sikh men. Years of wearing a turban where the hair is tied tightly into a topknot can result in hair loss and unsightly bald spots in the temple area.
