The partial or total loss of hair - can be extremely upsetting for those who
suffer from it. The condition can hit anyone at any time in their lives,
although it is usually more prevalent in teenagers and young adults. No-one
is quite sure exactly why it happens, although it's thought to be related to
the immune system attacking the body's own tissues through shock, stress,
viruses, infection, medicines and even sunlight. Whatever the cause, the
fact is that when bald patches start to appear on a person's head, eyebrows
or eyelashes they can become confused and distressed and their confidence
can take a dramatic dive.
A solution for loss of facial hair
While people may change their hairstyles or wear hairpieces to cover up bald
patches on their heads, obviously loss of facial hair can't be tackled so
easily. However, permanent cosmetics offer a very attractive solution.
Alopecia sufferers are often amazed at how effective eyebrow reconstruction
and eyelash replacement can be using permanent cosmetics. By applying hair
strokes or doing a powdered brow, the client's eyebrows can be enhanced to
appear extremely natural, while eyeliners can be used to "open" the eyes. So
now alopecia sufferers don't need to suffer any more.
