Alopecia areata is a type of autoimmune disease that can affect anyone at any age. Alopecia areata causes your immune system to attack your body’s own hair follicles, leading to varying levels of hair loss. Alopecia areata can cause small bald patches, large bald patches, or complete hair loss.
While there’s currently no way to stop alopecia areata, Scalp Micropigmentation can be used to camouflage the effects of this autoimmune issue. SMP can be used to “fill in” bald patches to make them less noticeable, to restore a hairline affected by alopecia, or to create the impression of a full head of shaven hair.
Scalp Micropigmentation can also be used to camouflage non-autoimmune forms of alopecia, including traction alopecia. Traction alopecia is hair loss that’s caused by repeatedly pulling on the hair. Some common causes of traction alopecia include frequently wearing one’s hair in a tight ponytail, bun, or braids. Traction alopecia most often occurs along the hairline and the part line. In some cases, traction alopecia is temporary. However, traction alopecia can be permanent. For those with long term or permanent traction alopecia, SMP can offer a simple way to restore the look of one’s hairline or part line.
I’m glad I finally chose to get the SMP procedure done and met Zoe.
SMP is a game changer and I couldn’t be more happier with the results. Scalp Micropigmentation has truly exceeded my expectations. Only thing is maybe I wish I got it done sooner.
I can honestly say that my confidence is restored.
Zoe’s service is excellent and I would highly recommend to my friends, family or anyone dealing with any forms of hair loss.
Zoe is truly the best at what she does.

Will SMP work for alopecia?
Absolutely. We have amazing, life-changing results with Scalp Micropigmentation for Alopecia Areata patients. You will get the best results if you shave your head so that the entire scalp matches. Fortunately, if you get a whole-scalp treatment, the patches can grow and shrink with no one noticing you have alopecia.
Why not get cortisone shots instead?
Cortisone shots attempt to save the remaining hair follicles and stimulate the inactive ones. Unfortunately, this is not a foolproof method. SMP is the only method to our knowledge that guarantees a uniform look to your hair in patients with alopecia. It is also a permanent solution, unlike shots.
