Microblading For Alopecia
Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that causes sudden and unexpected hair loss. With many cases of alopecia, people can lose their eyebrows. Alopecia areata is a type of alopecia that causes patches of hair loss on the head and other areas of the body, which, as previously mentioned, can include the eyebrows. Also, frontal fibrosing alopecia is a form of alopecia that causes hair loss at the front of the scalp and the face. This type of alopecia mainly affects people after menopause. Eyebrow hair loss occurs in around 39% of people with frontal fibrosing alopecia cases before their scalp hair loss.
When a person loses their eyebrows, it changes the whole look of their face. Without eyebrows, our facial features look out of place, and we can look like we have a severe illness. Many women will use makeup to disguise the fact they have lost their eyebrows. Men may find makeup challenging to do, or some people struggle with how tedious it is to apply your eyebrows before leaving the house and remove them before going to bed; this is where microblading comes in.
Microblading is a specialist trained cosmetic treatment where a handheld tool with a sterile blade is used to make strokes in the brow area; these are then filled in with pigment that is precisely matched to your skin tone and hair color to mimic the look of natural brow hairs. Many people get microblading to enhance the look of their natural brows, but did you know that you can have microblading if you do not have brows at all?
Microblading is changing the lives of alopecia clients. So, no matter how non-existent your eyebrows are, once the microblading procedure is complete, you will have perfectly styled brows that look like your own natural hair! As alopecia is so unpredictable, having microblading for alopecia will replicate the look of eyebrows and make the client feel themselves again and take back control.
An alternative technique to microblading for alopecia is a powder or ombre brow. This technique mimics the look of conventional makeup by creating a powdered brow look and is ideal if you have a little or a lot of hair. Those with no eyebrow hair may find that this technique is a little 2-dimensional for them. Combination brows are the most popular technique of microblading for alopecia sufferers. This technique involves using a combination of hair stroke and shading techniques to create a more 3-dimensional look to the eyebrow.
