Medical Treatments - Alopecia

Medical Treatments


Alopecia is 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.

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.

Cancer Patients

Pretty in Ink supports cancer patients in their quest to return to normal life. The great thing about permanent make up is that once cancer treatment is complete, if you have lost your eyebrows and are awaiting them to grow back, are dealing with long term eyebrow loss, or eyebrow thinning, then permanent make up can offer you a great natural looking alternative.

A donation of 10% for every procedure carried out on clients with Alopecia or Cancer patients recovering from chemotherapy will be donated to either Helping Alopecia Trust, a local N.I. charity or the MacDermott Oncology Unit at the Ulster Hospital.
