While many clients choose semi-permanent makeup as a way of enhancing their appearance, the procedure can also be used to help those with medical conditions, such as Alopecia.
What is Alopecia?
Alopecia occurs when hair follicles are mistakenly attacked by their immune system. As a result of these attacks, the hair in the affected area stops growing and ultimately falls out.
One in ten people will experience the effects of Alopecia, or hair loss, at some point in their life. The condition affects both men and women and up to 25% of sufferers have family members who also suffer from the condition. Common flare ups occur in those who are experiencing heightened levels of stress as well as ladies who are pregnant or postpartum.
How can semi-permanent makeup help those with Alopecia?
For clients who suffer from Alopecia, semi-permanent makeup is an effective way of replicating missing hair. Lots of doctors also recommend semi-permanent makeup application to sufferers as a way of helping them to feel more positive about their appearance.
While Alopecia doesn’t directly affect physical health, those affected will often mentally struggle with the condition and experience reduced self-esteem. As Alopecia can occur not only in head hair but also eyelashes, eyebrows and facial hair, the condition is often quite noticeable to others.
Can semi-permanent makeup help other conditions too?
Yes, absolutely. As well as a solution for those suffering with Alopecia, semi-permanent makeup is commonly used to replace hair loss in clients receiving chemotherapy treatment. Other clients include those with sight disabilities who can’t see in order to apply their own makeup.
