Many of us aren’t concerned with boosting the thickness of our body hair. Most invest in hair reduction rather than growth. Though we may prioritize removing body hair rather than promoting its development, complete body hair loss could indicate a health problem.
Alopecia Universalis causes hair loss all over the body. As the most advanced form of alopecia, AU doesn’t allow many people to regrow their lost hair. The exact cause for this condition is largely unknown but can link to specific gene mutations.
Lupus is an autoimmune disease that causes the immune system to target the body’s healthy tissues and organs. This condition causes widespread inflammation, which can harm various systems within the body. Lupus can lead to diverse hair loss patterns, notably on the scalp and face. Those diagnosed with Lupus may experience skin, joints, kidneys, circulatory system, brain, lungs, and heart issues.
Our endocrine system plays a crucial role in hair growth and regeneration. For this reason, thyroid conditions such as hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism can cause hair loss and impact the body’s ability to grow hair in general. Additionally, sudden drops in estrogen or spikes in androgen can cause body hair to thin or fall out entirely.
If your body hair is falling out unexpectedly, it’s a good idea to check in with your doctor to rule out any serious medical conditions. While you may not protest losing body hair, if you are losing hair on your head, scalp micropigmentation may be a good option for you. Scalp micropigmentation can either add density to the hair that you do have or create the permanent appearance of hair. We offer Scalp Micropigmentation in over 50 US cities.
