Scalp micropigmentation has proven itself again and again as the only hair loss solution to give guaranteed results for hair loss.
Hair loss in men is a very common issue. In fact, research suggests that up to 50% of men will experience hair loss at some point, and it is one of the few afflictions to take center stage in the male grooming market. It can be brought on by any of a multitude of causes, from nutritional deficiencies, stress or trauma, to hormonal imbalances. Unfortunately, it is often regarded as an unavoidable trait of being a male, and has often been put down to genetics.
Hair loss is a problem almost always synonymous with men; however, a high percentage of women will also experience hair thinning or balding throughout their lives, which can be the result of a number of factors, such as medical conditions, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances and stress. Because of how heavily hair loss is associated with men, affected women often feel the additional strain of suffering from a ‘male’ condition, and the resulting defeminisation.
Some conditions of Alopecia are not suitable for surgical hair restoration or medications simply do not work. Scalp micropigmentation, although cannot act as a cure it can certainly be an effective treatment to mask the area. Alopecia Areata or the more aggressive Alopecia Universalis can affect small areas/patches of hair or the entire head of hair, even spreading to the body. SMP can blend in small patches with the same tone of your surrounding hair, and even rebuild from no hair back up to a Norwood stage of your choice. Due to the extensive nature of Universalis more sessions than normal will be required; building up to a Norwood 5 hair loss stage and then over the top of the scalp. Treating this degree of hair loss takes a great deal of skill and understanding. Results can make a huge transformation, not only cosmetically but psychologically, helping to bring back self-confidence.
Hair loss from scars from surgery or an accident? Yes, even scars can be treated with scalp micropigmentation.
SMP produces excellent results in the camouflaging of hair loss from scars on the scalp whether as a result of previous injury or from the effects left from hair transplantation. All hair transplants leave an element of permanent scarring – the level of which is down to the type of transplantation procedure performed.
The strip method will produce a linear scar on the back of the head – a long yet thin scar, running usually from one ear to the other.
SMP can be used both prior to and post transplantation to enhance its effects. Indeed combining these two procedures will achieve the maximum amount of density and definition to the hairline. SMP enhances the look of fullness by reducing the contrast levels between your scalp and the natural hair colour. Natural pigments are applied up to the epidermal layer of the scalp to produce the image of real hair follicles.SMP prior to transplant treatment can help minimise the obvious hairline difference of an individual, by discreetly improving the hair density in the weeks running up to the transplant – making the transition less obvious
