What is it? Who is this treatment for?
In today’s market and—very visible in the media, from toupees to hair plugs, to pills and creams… hair loss treatment is a very profitable industry! Let’s talk about a procedure called scalp micropigmentation.
This procedure is performed by a tattoo artist who, essentially, dots a person’s scalp with hundreds or thousands of tiny dots — depending on the severity of the baldness/hair loss— that look like very short pieces of hair. The best way to describe what it looks like might be stubble. During the treatments, micro needles are used to layer pigment dots on your scalp in a process that resembles getting a tattoo. But SMP is a highly-technical, specialized process performed by trained technicians.
We know that hair loss is an affliction that negatively affects confidence, and forces some people to wear a hat every time they leave the house in order to feel comfortable. This vulnerability that bald men feel makes them easy targets for doctors and TV infomercial advertisements.
However! This procedure isn’t just for men with male pattern baldness. It has also been used on women with advanced hair loss, those who suffer from alopecia, people with scars from hair transplant procedures, and veterans, firemen, and police officers who suffered wounds or scarring on their scalp as a by-product of their line of work. The technician works through the scalp by repeatedly parting the hair section by section (if hair is present), applying pigment to the scalp in the usual way. The level of detail is not as important, nor are matters such as blending. However, it is vital to ensure your technician is using a pigment that will not change color.
When it comes to scalp micropigmentation, the bottom line is restoring confidence. This isn’t about having the latest tattoo trend, or looking cool, it’s about feeling good about the way you look.
Genetics – Parents/family members suffered from hair loss? Chances are you will, too.
Hormones – Men who are predisposed to hair loss inherit hair follicles that are over-sensitive to a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) that shrinks hair follicles. Eventually, the hair becomes thinner and finer until hair growth stops.
Age – As we age, hair growth slows.
Other factors – Smoking, excessive alcohol use, certain medications, and even a poor diet, may contribute to hair loss.
Though you can’t expect to get the mass and texture of hair, it is guaranteed that the fresh and new look would alleviate your esteem. The procedure is not painful and only a tingling sensation is felt while this is carried out. Painless, cheaper and permanent, this is a magical solution to baldness today.
