Statistically speaking, more women than men experience alopecia, though at Top Scalp we have treated both men and women with the condition. Two types of alopecia affect the scalp. Alopecia totalis is the loss of hair all over the head. Alopecia Universalis, as the name implies results in hair loss all over the head, face and body. The condition is distressing and the duration a client might have it is unknown. It can come on at any time and reverse without warning. Science has yet to discover its cause, making treatment options impossible—at least, until SMP was developed.
