The roots of hairs are located just below the skin so only very deep burns destroy them. This is why burns in hairy areas often heal well because new skin can actually grow from the hair follicles. Hair forms an important part of an individual’s identity and loss impacts on self-confidence. For women, visible hair loss affects the scalp and eyebrows. For men, the beard and moustache are also affected.
Wigs, hair pieces, hair styles and camouflage products can cover areas of partial or total scalp hair loss. Eyebrow, beard and moustache scarring alopecia is less easy to hide. For both genders, hair loss affecting areas that can be hidden from view (limbs, torso, pubic) still can have psychological impact.
Non surgical treatment options include micropigmentation tattooing, hair systems, prosthetics and camouflage products.
Micropigmentation tattooing is best done by practitioners with experience in scar tissue.
Surgical options include flaps, with or without tissue expansion and hair transplantation, however, there is very limited access to hair transplant surgery in the NHS.
