Microblading might give ladies who want a fuller eyebrow the look they desire, but it goes further than that. For alopecia sufferers, it can help them gain their identity back.
Alopecia areata (AA) is an autoimmune disorder that causes patchy or total hair loss on the scalp, body, and face.
It is thought to affect 15 in 10,000 people in the UK, making it a relatively common condition. However, this doesn’t make it easier to deal with, and many women who suffer from AA struggle to cope with their hair falling out.
It is thought that three-quarters of cases impact eyebrows and eyelashes, with this often resulting in emotional distress as they are on the face, somewhere people can’t help but notice.
This is why microblading could really help sufferers, create definition on their face again and boost their self-esteem.
It is typically used to fill in sparse eyebrows, but can also create the illusion of hair on women who have lost their brows entirely. The procedure works by making incisions on the brow line with tiny blades with ink inside. This process, which is similar to tattooing, gives a very natural look, thanks to the micro-incisions that give the appearance of short hairs.
Though this is a ground-breaking procedure for AA sufferers, Everyday Health advises to see more guidance for those over the age of 55, have other autoimmune conditions or are on thyroid medication.
