Seeing your hair get thinner and thinner can be a heart wrenching experience. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, 40% of women have visible hair loss by the time they are age 40 while half of the men in the world experience hair loss by age 50. About 70% of men will lose hair as they get older with 25% of bald men seeing the first signs of hair loss before age 21.
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment for thinning hair or hair loss. Essentially, this is a highly sophisticated medical tattoo process. A provider uses thin, small needles to deposit tiny dots of cosmetic-grade permanent pigment (color) at the second epidermis layer on the scalp, giving the appearance of hair follicles, thicker hair, and a restored hairline.
When your hair is thinning and you have a light complexion, your pale scalp accentuates the thinning by showing through. The pigmentation will mask this. The process may also hide unwanted birthmarks or scars. SMP can help create a full head of hair creating the illusion of a fresh out of the barbershop buzzcut or razored look. Fully customize your treatment, with input on hairline design, style preferences, and final goals. Scalp micropigmentation is noninvasive and does not require surgery or anesthesia.
To create the most natural appearance possible, on average, patients receive two to three treatments spaced out 10-14 days between each session, followed by “touch ups” every 4-6 years, if needed and carries no strict lifestyle or daily restrictions.
While many customers use this for cosmetic reasons, others are excited because it is helping to repair damage and mask the effects of medical treatments of conditions The treatment can create the appearance of thicker hair in people who have:
- Alopecia areata, an autoimmune condition that causes hair loss.
- Chemotherapy-related hair loss.
- Hair loss in women.
- Hormonal conditions that cause hair loss, including polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
- Male pattern baldness, receding hairline or baldness at the crown of the head.
- Thin hair or scalp show-through.
- Scarring resulting from hair transplant surgery, burns and birthmarks:
SMP will not grow hair or change your natural hair growth. Let’s not mistake it for a hair loss treatment. Scalp Micropigmentation is a way to make it look like you have fuller, thicker hair.
