Alopecia Universalis is a relatively rare autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss over the scalp and the entire body. The only real difference between this and other types of Alopecia Areata is the extent of hair affected by the condition. While the mechanism is common, the experience of hair loss for women with Alopecia Universalis is anything but universal. Men, women, and children who lack hair across their entire bodies must consider some factors that other forms of hair loss don’t bring.
A Different Set of Priorities
No matter what type of hair loss you have, Occhi Hair Institute will provide you with the expertise and resources you need to manage your experience of hair loss. With us, it’s about you. But those with Alopecia Universalis just might be those who benefit the most from their time with us. Full-body hair loss is a rare condition that many non-specialized providers are poorly equipped to handle. Salons definitely can’t consider all the aspects of this type of hair loss.
In Alopecia Universalis, hair loss is more noticeable than in other types of hair loss. More importantly, some of the body’s natural hairs provide protection from bacteria and the environment. Sure, the hair on your head might be your first priority if you’ve lost your hair suddenly, but it’s important to revisit each site of hair loss to ensure the condition doesn’t put your health in jeopardy.
As a Trichology-oriented studio, Occhi Hair Institute emphasizes scalp care. Many people who are experiencing hair loss simply don’t think about their scalps. The hair can’t be made to grow back, so the scalp is just exposed. But that exposure to products, weather, and hair additions only increases the importance of scalp care. The truth is, your scalp plays a big role in both your everyday comfort and the progression of your hair loss. We’ll analyze your scalp, recommend a scalp-care regimen, and focus in on the scalp if it will impact your hair loss.
Alopecia Universalis can be tough but going through it with a trusted ally is never as hard as being isolated and alone. If you’re ready to talk to someone about your hair loss, meet with Lynn and start finding answers. The consultation is completely confidential. Call us today.
