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.
