When you are sick you seek a doctor, when you have a toothache you look for a dentist. In the same way, when you have a problem with how you look, you seek a cosmetic surgeon or more recently, a semi permanent makeup artist. If you are not all too familiar with the treatment, it is exactly how it sounds; semi permanent. Basically, through the help of extremely fine needles, specially formulated pigment will be inserted into the skin. If you are thinking how similar that is to tattooing right now, well you are right. However, with some differences. In much the same way as you would place your trust in a doctor to help with your illness, one places complete trust and faith in their artist. If you are not sure what you are looking for, perhaps this will help.


Where such delicate fields are concerned, one must be extremely attentive to what is going on at all times. The slightest mistake can be costly and startup businesses in particular are in no position to suffer client wrath by way of legal battles. Hence, it is important that they hire artists who display attentive traits. A distracted person will not really be able to concentrate hard enough to give you the perfect eyebrow tattoo Dubai no matter how hard they tried. Everybody feels comfortable with somebody who knows what they are doing and is most importantly committed to the task at hand. So if you are looking out for a good salon, watch for attentiveness their staff.


This is not like wandering into a salon for a haircut only to decide you also want your eyebrows done where you will walk out after 15-30 minutes. Semi permanent makeup treatments takes ages and can last for a couple of hours at least. So it only makes sense that the artist you have is friendly. Can you imagine being stuck for all that time with someone who is brooding, snappy and not at all warm? It would be a complete nightmare. When you speak to them, see if they are open for conversation and whether they are approachable which is good to know in case you have an issue of some sort.


With any job, you can easily pick out the bunch who are in it because they have no other choice and those who are truly dedicated to their work. Career choices can change of course, that is normal. However, when those who are forced to stay in something their heart does not believe in, it becomes hard to do a good job at it. Those who are adamant about pursuing their career path are those who fight for it tooth and nail and put in 100% dedication. You can easily pick out dedication from a crowd, it is that visible. After speaking with your makeup artist for a while, you should be able to pick it up. You can look forward to your treatment for semi permanent makeup in Dubai.

Aside from these, keep your eyes peeled for hygiene and general behaviour. Sometimes you can pick out the most obvious signs when they think they are not under watch. Drop in casually before you book an appointment just to see them at work when they will not be expecting you. After that, take it from there.


If you are somewhat familiar with the concept of tattooing, then it is not too hard to grasp semi permanent makeup. However, there is a thin line between the two which made up of a few differences. Although both of these essentially use the same sort of procedure, i.e. the use of a needle to deposit ink under the skin, the pigments and needles utilised are for one different for tattoos. It is important to remember that neither tattoos nor semi permanent makeup is actually ‘permanent’ in the sense of the word. Whilst they will last quite a while, with time and external factors they begin to fade and deplete looking nothing like they did at the start. This does not mean that one can get away with a mediocre job. After all, at least where semi permanent makeup’s concerned the results are always on display for the world to see. So if at all you might be considering becoming an artist down this field, you should know you need the following.


This one might seem rather obvious, but there are actually some clinics around that think it is completely fine to unleash untrained personnel onto the world with such a delicate responsibility in their hands. Although those that get caught can be prevented from causing any further damage, the victims who have already fallen prey are already in trouble. Hence, you have a moral responsibility to ensure you only deliver the very best and for this you need proper training procedures. Depending on where you live or where you plan on getting your training from, the training you require will change. Make sure you opt for something that is valid in the top regions you see yourself working in in the future such as semi permanent makeup in Dubai for instance.


Not that this is some sort of surgery, but every client will be different and some can stomach things better than others. Some people for example are not very tolerant about sighting blood so they could faint. In such instances you need to be able to at the least administer CPR. Anything could happen, and frankly knowing first aid is useful for you in general. Learning it for a job only strengthens your appeal and many relevant establishments will be looking to hire you which is great especially right after training. When you one day decide to open your own salon, you will find that this skill comes in handy. Some people might have extreme needle phobia which is another situation you would have to deal with so the practice stretches beyond semi permanent makeup alone.


Anybody can attend a course and claim they have learnt all there is to know and assume they are proficient enough to go try out their newfound skills on the world. That is not how things work however. If you want to be taken seriously and build up a reputation for yourself, then you have to get your license. Obtaining your license differs based on where you are. Having said that, for the most part you would need to qualify for the initial set of requirements after which you would need to make an application for your license. Then, a practical exam will be held so you demonstrate the skills you have learnt. Only and only if you pass this examination will you be conferred a license. So you need a solid grounding in all aspects to become a professional artist for semi permanent makeup in Dubai or anywhere else.

Aside from the above, you also should have certain personality traits since they will help you in your job. Patience, willingness to learn and social skills are just some of these. Make sure your qualifications and personality are on par for success.


If there is one thing that has become quite apparent in this progressive world of ours, it is the fact that people are far more ambitious and driven than they have ever been before. That is of course taking into account the sheer number of small businesses that have been cropping up in the recent past. Part of the reason for this is due to the Internet. With social media now dominating our lives and online shopping becoming the new in thing, a collaboration of the two could only mean one thing after all. Hence, everyone is now encouraged in a sense to do something other than their regimented office jobs. Needless to say, the possibilities are endless although for the purpose of this article, we will be looking at what you would have to do to set up a semi permanent makeup clinic. Assuming you have all the required qualifications and training, here are some tips to give you a push.


This might seem like a rather broad tip, but in essence it means where would you practice? Are you looking at using an existing space that you might have as your clinic or would you be renting one out? Do you want to be permanently based or would you prefer to be on the move as a mobile artist? First and foremost you need to work that out. Only then can you decide on where you want to setup camp. Depending on which of these options you go for, your requirements and needs will change accordingly. From lighting to equipment, every little detail matters. Whether people come to you for a simple eyebrow tattoo Dubai or a more complex procedure, you want to be able to deliver your best.


The importance of securing insurance for yourself especially in this field cannot be stressed enough. This part will be quite boring and tedious to say the least but you will have to pay attention. If you leave out one tiny details, you could find yourself in the midst of a lawsuit that will see you lose both your reputation and your business. Perhaps get a trusted lawyer on board to walk you through all the legalities. Make sure your insurance policy covers everything it should. That is not to say anything bad will happen, it is just saying anything can happen and when it does, you need to be prepared for it. Semi permanent makeup is a fairly new, still delicate industry so take no chances.


You have to understand that before you invest all your savings and embark down this road, the cost of running a business of this nature is costly. You see, you cannot get away with it by compromising on the quality of your products. Using cheap pigments and needles could lead to hideous health complications which in turn will haunt you and your company for a long time to come. Hence, you will need to always replace items and ensure your pigments and other necessities are always in great shape. Needless to say, this is quite an expensive trend to maintain so if you do make money remember a bulk of it needs to go to stock the shop. As a whole, make sure semi permanent makeup is what you want to do.
Any business for that matter is no piece of cake. There are plenty of obstacles, hardships and pitfalls some which seem like they are unsolvable. With enough determination and commitment though, you can make anything happen so stick it out and live your dream.

If you have not already heard about this new phenomenon expanding across the world, you are definitely behind times. Semi permanent makeup is the revolutionary new addition to the beauty industry. By cutting down on time used to preen yourself before heading out and eliminating the hassle of balancing your foundation and mascara in the cab, it has gained quite the fan base. Having said that, the results are only successful if you take care of yourself the right way immediately after the treatment. If this is your first time venturing into it, then you could probably find the following useful. These are applicable regardless of the type of treatment you have done, that is to say eyebrows, eyes or lips for instance.


When the flesh opens up due to a wound, it needs to heal obviously. The healing process though can be both long and drawn out or quick as lightning depending on the depth of the wound. Either way, the itchy sensation you feel is the body’s method of coping with the situation. As platelets rush in to cover up the open spot, the skin around the area begins to contract contributing to the itch. One of the worst things you can do is to actually scratch the itch. Where semi permanent makeup is concerned, this will probably drive you up the wall. You will feel as though you want to give your entire face a great scratching session although on the contrary you should be keeping your fingers far away from it. Control the itching. If not, it could lead to scarring and infections.


Seeing as how you probably look like a freshly painted canvas, it is unlikely that you would be in any hurry to meet anybody right now, but in case you get any ideas remember to stay indoors. This is mainly because there is so much dust and dirt outside that can get into the open wounds and cause infections. Furthermore, you could also sweat which in turn can exacerbate the situation. You should be staying as cool as possible with minimal physical exertion. It might be tough to do if you have a full-time job, but this could be a good time to use your accumulated leave. Eyebrows in particular are designed to trap dirt and sweat from falling into the eye so if you have had an eyebrow tattoo Dubai done, then more’s the reason for car.


Just like an itch is a part of having a wound, so is the scabbing. By habit, we are quite used to absent-mindedly picking at it until we force it to fall off. When it comes to scabbing as a part of the healing process of the procedure, this should be avoided at all costs. Let the scabs fall off on their own. If you find it difficult to resist the urge, occupy yourself. Do something that keeps you busy. Whatever you do, keep those fingernails off your face. Our nails trap so much bacteria within them because we use them for practically everything. You would be directly transferring it all to your open wounds which is a disgusting thought. Allow the healing to take place on its own.

Remember that with such delicate procedures, it is critical that you follow instructions to a ‘t’. Do not disregard the above points as far as safety post-semi permanent makeup goes.  


If Hollywood and advertising has taught us anything, it is the fact that impeccable makeup and flawless skin can keep you bouncing between several obligations in a day. Achieving this however, is a whole other ball game. We all know what makeup ends up looking like by about 2 pm, streaky and clogged up with mascara gunk gathered towards the corner of the eye. If your job entails a lot of zooming around, then you definitely know how difficult it can be to look presentable when you are trying to beat the heat and the sweat. Furthermore, it is quite cumbersome to keep transporting your makeup everywhere you go. Many are the foundation explosions that have occurred at the most inconvenient times. Putting all these problems to rest though, is semi permanent makeup. A concept growing in popularity, there are some safety tips to bear in mind.


As human beings, we are extremely vulnerable creatures and by no means invincible. Allergies can take different forms and are triggered sometimes by the most unthinkable things. They are the outcome of genetic disorders, and are often passed down through DNA. Whilst some people have allergies to nuts or pollen, others have more serious conditions. If you or someone you know is planning to get semi permanent makeup done at some point and are prone to allergic reactions, it is highly advisable that you seek a doctor’s guidance first. You must put your health first. Since pigments will be inserted into your skin, it could cause problems especially if you are sensitive in general.


It is incredibly important to ensure that the ink going into your skin is completely safe. Obviously as the client it could be difficult for you to personally check each tube yourself, but you can enquire about it. You will most definitely have an initial consultation and this is your window to ask questions and address any concerns you have. Instead of waltzing into it with minimal preparation, take some time in the days ahead to read up a few articles on the subject. Some inks tend to spread over time because of poor consistency which can ruin your looks. Others are more dependable. What you need to do is find out what is it that makes some better than others and then use that as a base for your questions. Ask the clinic whether their pigments include the high-quality chemicals that minimise complications.


Any open wound for that matter would fester and infect if it is not treated properly or looked after. Whether you are getting an eyebrow tattoo Dubai or just getting your lips lined, fact of the matter is that you are breaking open your skin. You will be given a post-treatment routine to follow as well as a list of dos and donts. Should you neglect to stick to them, you are sure to face a host of issues. You run the risk of contracting infections and unfortunately it becomes hard to treat and messy because you have just had a treatment done. In some cases it can get really bad and painful so avoid the trouble and stick to your healing instructions.
As much as semi permanent makeup is quite popular around the world for its benefits, it can quickly turn disastrous if you are not careful. The above list should hopefully set you straight.


If you have to move houses you would also need to find a new salon amongst others necessities like a dentist, doctor and so forth. There are naturally some qualities you would look for to help you make a solid decision. It is the same when it comes to locking down a reliable semi permanent makeup artist. Seeing as how it is still a budding concept, you would want all the support you can get to ensure you are in safe hands. If you are seriously considering getting it done, you should be visiting some of these clinics in person. To help you identify the right spot, have a browse through this list of traits a competent individual in this field would have.


Whether you are after dental implants, a health checkup or an eyebrow tattoo Dubai, communication is key. In fact, it is how this world operates. Without it, we would not be able to function. Why else do you think it is difficult to communicate with someone who has a different first language? It is of paramount importance that they understand and converse in fluent English (seeing as how it is the universal language) if you want a good job done. How can you let them know what you needs and doubts are if they cannot hold a decent conversation? This is not a case of discrimination, you are merely looking out for your own interests. Keep hunting until you find a place whose staff displays excellent communication skills.


It would be pointless walking into a semi permanent makeup clinic that has been around for five years, but has not progressed since then. The beauty industry’s landscape is one that is always shifting, adapting according to new technologies that are introduced. These technologies look for more efficient ways of manufacturing new products or implementing services. If the makeup artist has no idea what is going on in the industry, it is likely that he or she will not be able to advise you appropriately. You will not be able to reap the best value for money and only receive poor service in return. However, you should also make sure they know what they are talking about and not just rattling off an article they might have read say, a week ago.


With any job, professionalism is something that goes a long way. Here too, it plays a significant role. Is your makeup artist attentive to your concerns? Are they diplomatic in their approach? How do they resolve conflicts of interest? In addition to these you need to also make sure they are always impeccably dressed. They would most probably have a staff uniform provided to wear, but what matters is whether it is clean and pressed. There are many things that contribute to a professional individual in the workplace, and looking for these attributes in the makeup artist is a huge leap forward.

Semi permanent makeup is ‘semi permanent’ which means that you will need to live with your look for at least 2 years to come. By putting in considerable effort into the right makeup artist, you will be able to enjoy this look and not regret it.

Have you ever wondered why you have eyebrows? Well, if you have wondered but never really bothered to find out, you will here! Eyebrows serve a twofold functionality. They are responsible for trapping dust and dirt within them so that your eyes are unaffected and they are also responsible for giving your face a shape. Although they may seem rather insignificant, you will find just how much of a difference they make when they are not there. Which is why, those who suffer from alopecia (condition of hair loss) for instance, opt for semi permanent makeup that can mimic the real thing quite well. However, nothing can help you (real or otherwise) if you do not know what works for you. So consider this your all-time eyebrow guide.


If you have ever come across someone who looks as though their eyebrows do not fit their face, it is because they are doing it wrong and it is glaringly obvious. Shape is the most basic mistake that many make. It is not a matter of what shape you like as much as it is about what shape suits you the most. You see, people fall under five main face-categories and the trick is to find out which of these you belong to. From round, oval, square, heart and diamond, you can compare your face to a few charts and decide which is yours. Whether you need to figure out your brow shape for an eyebrow tattoo Dubai or just as a makeup tool, it can be useful.


Believe it or not, this too plays an important role in the final result. Although yes this depends in part on what your personal preferences are, (Cara Delevigne anyone?) it also depends on what suits you. Just like the shape of the brow, thickness is something you should play around with. Obviously do not use semi permanent makeup to play around, use an eyebrow pencil instead! This way, you will be able to tell which areas should be thicker and which should be elongated. If you have at least a basic idea, you can let the linergist know what you have in mind and go from there.


This might be beginning to sound like an arts-‘n-crafts project, however colour too is an important feature of stunning brows. Genetics have a role to play with the eyebrows you are born with so they might be jet black, more brown or very light and wispy. With the first you need not really worry so much seeing as how many are concerned with darkening their brows to make them look thicker. If however you want them another colour, you can do so with tinting. You can darken and thicken thin brows with semi permanent makeup however you need to look at different options first.

With colour, be especially careful and ask for some before and after pictures. Generally, immediately after the treatment the colour can really darken which will look unnatural at first however as the scabs begin to fall away and the area heals, the colour begins to lighten up with time. Request to see a picture of someone who has passed this phase so you get a better idea of what to expect.


No doubt, over the past decade we have been privileged enough to witness several technological breakthroughs which have left us in awe of how far our human capabilities can stretch. From testing driverless cars to ridiculously clear cameras fitted into razor thin tabs, the list is seemingly endless. Adding to this, is the equally baffling notion of semi permanent makeup. Even if you might not know all that much about the subject, you would have heard the term being used even loosely. If you are curious to know more, then you have come to the right place. Here are some instances when the treatment might be right for you.


There are girls who absolutely detest even the idea of makeup, and then you have the girls who need every new shade of lipstick that comes through. Conventional makeup comes with hundreds of different options seeing as how there are more brands than you can count, however this is not necessarily a good thing. Not only are you piling on too many chemicals onto your skin, you are also unwittingly spending all your hard-earned cash on this tub and that tube. Semi permanent makeup can be as intense or as subtle as you like and may be a smarter option in this sense since you never have to buy makeup again!

Another instance in which this concept can be useful is for those who are suffering from debilitating health conditions. Two of the most common and unfortunately incurable, are cancer and alopecia areata. Even though the latter is not life-threatening, it can still have a deep impact on the person’s mental health as alopecia is linked to the loss of hair, in some cases extreme. Semi permanent makeup has been able to assist victims with eyebrow treatments and even covering up hair loss on the head in mild cases. Aside from the beauty aspect, there is some solace to be found in it as well.


Another notable fact of the 21st century is that women have become more career-oriented than they were a decade ago, whilst juggling families at the same time. This leaves them with barely any time for themselves. Sometimes, there could be several meetings in one day that need to be attended so looking impeccable is a part of it. Women tend to wake up earlier than men especially when they have a family to look after and when their morning routine includes time for makeup, they have to be up even earlier. Semi permanent makeup tends to eliminate this problem since you need not really wake up to do your makeup, you will wake up with your makeup done for you!

Whilst it can be beneficial in all of the circumstances mentioned above, you should know that opting for the treatment requires a fair bit of research on your part. After all, you not want to risk your looks at the hands of a cheap clinic and inexperienced staff do you? Make sure you scour the Internet for recommended options and speak to friends and family who may have had it done before for their opinions.


The concept of semi permanent makeup though fairly new is growing in popularity and it is therefore important to understand how every stage works, in particular before the treatment. Remember it is not like running to the salon on the way back from grocery shopping to get your eyebrows threaded, treatment involves a 2-3 year commitment. Although you might be itching to get a headstart, it is in your best interests to take your time with this before settling on a decision. Here are a few tips to help guide your way.


The benefits of semi permanent makeup can be truly seen when you leave enough time before and after for it to settle down. Just because you discover it two weeks before your wedding or a party, you cannot simply waltz into the salon and demand that you get it done. There is a strict procedure to follow which is only protecting you unless you want to look like a new-age Frankenstein. So you need to compromise. Maybe you let it go for your wedding, but once you are settled into your new home take some time to get it done leaving plenty of time to heal afterwards of course. The key is not to rush through it.


It is very much similar to when you consult a doctor or dentist for a bigger procedure to follow. You would go in for a consultation beforehand so you get a comprehensive overview on what to expect. This first consultation is crucial for semi permanent makeup since you can also get an insight into your eligibility especially if you have any allergies or are currently under medication. This can help avoid a heap of potential problems all around. Make sure you ask all the questions you need to. If it helps, research before your consultation and jot down points you need to clarify.


In particular, sun-protection. You will anyway be advised to steer clear of strenuous activities since sweat and dust are the worst things for you post-treatment, however you will also need to get your hats and sunscreen out and have them ready since you should not be running about looking for them after your appointment. Semi permanent makeup needs time to heal and sun exposure is the worst. Furthermore, you also need your painkillers and ointments to help assist faster healing. Stock up on the protection well in advance.

Remember that just because it may have worked out fine for someone, it does not mean that you will emerge unscathed. After all every person is different and the outcome can be subjective as a result. Which is why, consultation is again stressed upon. If you have any prescriptions for medications, bring them along with you. If you are still unsure, you can also speak with your doctor to be on the safe side. After all, yes beauty is great but your health comes first and it cannot be compromised. You can also do some extra research on the side.

So you decided that conventional makeup was not for you and that lugging about several different tubs of multi-coloured creams and powders just lost their allure. This led you to do some background checks on a little something known as semi permanent makeup, which has been growing in popularity around the world. As you read more and more about it, it seemed to be the perfect solution to all your problems. From looking photo-ready straight out of bed every morning to appearing at every meeting looking like your makeup team followed you around, the list was complete. You booked in an appointment, got yourself semi permanently made up… and now what? Well, recovery of course. Which you need to pay special attention to.


The situation is similar to surgery really. It will look worse off than it actually is, until before the body begins to work its magic and heal. The pigment that has been freshly etched into your skin will be settling in so chances are it will look several shades darker than you would have intended although you should not worry. Over the next few days, it will automatically start to lighten although the process is gradual so you do need to be patient. Whether you have had an eyebrow tattoo Dubai or eyeliner treatment, this remains the same. You might also experience puffiness and redness, but this too should die down.


This is the time it is going to get quite tough because scabs begin to form (after all, there are multiple little holes that are healing) which means that just as with any other wounds, there will be considerable itching. However, we have all learnt from our mothers never to itch wounds or the area around them as we could interfere with the healing process not to mention transfer bacteria from our nails leading to infections. On your knee, this is one thing but on your face it is a whole other story altogether. If you choose semi permanent makeup, you will have to prepare yourself for this period which can be a bit difficult to bear. However, you do get to test your self-control so that is something!


Once the scabs have formed, when they are ready they will naturally fall off. Again, you are going to be tempted to pick at them, but you should not. Let your body heal on its own else you are only going to aggravate the situation. Frankly, whether you have had an eyebrow tattoo Dubai or any other type of treatment, you should steer clear of any chemical-laden products such as face washes, face scrubs and makeup (funnily enough). Do not irritate the area in any way if you can help it; if you have any issues make sure you call up the clinic and let them know about your problem. Never try to solve it yourself.

After the colour has settled in and the skin has finished peeling, you would need to go in just one more time for a touch-up. This will polish your look, giving you a well-rounded appearance. This follow-up visit is generally included in the cost so do not worry about having to pay extra!


Interestingly, we live in a world today where we need to dash from one appointment to another, making sure we look our best throughout the day. This is interesting because, the two contradict each other; it is quite a challenge to look pulled-together and fresh when you have to deal with sweat and humidity not to mention flyaway hair. Of course carrying a makeup pouch everywhere you go is an option, but what happens when you spill foundation on your crisp white shirt or have to carry a clutch and not the bag that contains your whole life within its space? Enter the technological marvel that is semi permanent makeup. A concept shrouded in mystery and doubt yet firmly embedded in the beauty industry for its benefits and revolutionary new approach to makeup.


The first step to understanding something fully is to learn about it from scratch. You can of course just hear about it from someone else, but you may not have the same exposure. Which is why, you should first ask ‘What is semi permanent makeup?’

Your skin is made up of many different layers and is the largest organ in the human body. The top layer of skin is commonly known as the ‘dermis’ or dermal layer. This is the layer that need to be penetrated when tattooing so that ink may be deposited under the skin. It is the same when it comes to getting this more permanent form of makeup. It is also important to note that ‘permanent’ is not to say it will last forever as fading, discolouration and spreading of ink can occur; it means that the results will be around for some time. It is also important to note that the pigments and needles used are quite different to traditional tattoos so do not worry!


A question you need to ask yourself more than once before you finally decide that yes this is indeed for you. You see, semi permanent makeup comes in handy in two instances; one is to be able to wake up and go about your day without really having to worry about how you look, and two if you or someone you know is suffering from an illness that involves hair loss like alopecia for example. Some also choose to opt for it so they can cover up scars or other marks on their skin. It all really depends on what your need is.


Once you have an idea of these two important points related to semi permanent makeup, it is time for you to look at what you should do if you do choose to go ahead with it. First and foremost, research. Find out which clinics are around your location and which are offering reliable services, not just any service. Once you have a list, take a day of the weekend and personally visit each place. This gives you the opportunity to gauge them for yourself as opposed to information that is fed to you from a website. Staff compatibility, expertise and hygiene are just some of the key factors that matter. Once you find a place that suits you, book in a consultation and go from there.

Make sure the clinics you browse through are not only clean and well-staffed, but also registered, licensed, and have been in business for some time or at least run by owners who have a considerable amount of experience behind them. The last thing you want is to leave your face in the hands of people who have no idea what they are doing. The more effort you put in, the better the outcome.


A part of being human is to be vulnerable to illnesses and diseases that are sometimes beyond our control. Although of course every attempt at a cure should be made, it is not always possible. In which case you would need to come to terms with the situation as it is, and then take the necessary steps to help yourself live with it. The worst thing you can do if you do have a health problem, is to corner yourself into a circle of depression and self-pity. This article will be looking at the condition known as Alopecia Areata which involves hair loss, and also look at treatment and other related options, including semi permanent makeup to disguise its effects.


Quite simply put, alopecia refers to balding. It can often be diagnosed when bald spots begin to appear on the head which are considerably large in diametre. An overall thinning of the hair is also a clear symptom. This also affects the eyebrows which is mainly one of reasons why people choose to opt for semi permanent makeup as the treatment offers some form of respite from the situation. Biologically, it is a malfunction of the body’s immune system which is what protects you from viruses and illnesses generally. Labelled an autoimmune disorder, alopecia is what happens when the immune system attacks the hair follicles which in turn affects the growth of hair.


The first thing you should know about alopecia areata is that it is in no way life-threatening and it does not lead to other health conditions. However, it does affect sufferers considerably when you take their mental health into consideration. The condition can vary in severity from just patches to complete loss of hair which is then known as ‘alopecia areata totalis’. This affects one’s appearance which in turn affects their self-esteem and confidence. Although semi permanent makeup can do little to alleviate this situation, with mild cases of alopecia, it is possible to turn to this option.


This is perhaps the most important fact of them all. Unfortunately, alopecia areata does not have any known permanent treatment. Your doctor may prescribe other medication for you which may contribute to your hair growing back, however you should know that this does nothing to cure the actual disease, nor will it prevent more hair from falling out. There are some necessary steps that need to be taken if you or someone you know is suffering from the condition, and these include using plenty of sunscreen, wearing a hat and sunglasses at all times as well as a specific cream for the inside of the nostrils (which your doctor should be able to help you with) as the nostril hairs too which are responsible for filtering our dust and dirt are missing. Though an eyebrow tattoo Dubai could take care of missing eyebrows, unfortunately with the rest it is not that simple.
It is important to provide adequate support especially mentally to alopecia sufferers as it can be quite debilitating to come to terms with, especially as there is no certain treatment. Regular visits to the doctor can also help monitor and control the situation.
