The Rising Popularity of Scalp Micropigmentation to Treat Hair Loss

Men & Women Experience Hair Loss

For Scalp Micropigmentation

Genetics play a major role in hair loss experienced by men and women, accounting for over 90% of cases. Although hair thinning and balding can be a problem for up to 40% of women, the majority of people who seek hair restoration solutions are male. Men can start to notice that they are losing their hair as early as 20 years of age, and by the age of 50, 85% of men will report some hair thinning or balding.

Multiple treatment options exist today. Technological advancements have made hair transplant surgery safer, more effective, and more natural-looking than ever before. However, a new hair restoration trend is getting a lot of attention and is fast becoming the popular choice for young men. And it’s not a surgery. Scalp micropigmentation (SMP), which is also referred to as cosmetic hair tattooing, involves depositing very fine dots of semi-permanent ink into the scalp to mimic the appearance of shaved hairs or to create the illusion of denser hair follicles in areas where the hair is thinning.

Seek Medical Advise

This procedure is different from a traditional tattoo in a number of ways, but many of today’s men and women under 40 do not perceive a stigma or issue attached to the idea of tattooing at all. For many in this generation, tattoos have been a regular part of life, and it seems logical to look to these techniques for cosmetic, restorative reasons.

It is recommended that a person seek medical experts specializing in hair restoration, such as Dr. Cory Torgerson, to pursue SMP. The appropriate, specialized equipment, expertise, and artistic ability of Dr. Torgerson and his team will ensure meticulous care and execution from the colour selection to the shape of the hairline.

Hair Restoration

A Better Option

This method of hair restoration may be gaining such rapid popularity because it is truly the easiest of available options. No other treatment can offer instant results, minimal aftercare, and no downtime while delivering a carefree “buzzed hair” look that will last 3 to 5 years. There is no daily maintenance, which many active, busy men and women appreciate. The look of a shaved head is quite stylish, fitting well in a professional or casual setting and on all ages. Most men don’t need a full head of long, wavy hair to feel attractive. They are happy to have the appearance of a full head of hair that they chose to shave for style reasons.  SMP is the least expensive of the most popular hair transplant and hair system options and the easiest to fit into a busy lifestyle.  Micro pigmentation has been targeted toward men through celebrities such as Vin Diesel, Pitbull, Jamie Fox, Bruce Willis, and Jason Statham. These days, one doesn’t know for sure if the shaved head they are seeing has real hairs or not, but the trend seems to be that less stigma is attached to having and talking about this treatment now more than ever.

SMP For Men & Women

SMP is an ideal option for men and women to create the appearance of thicker hair or to create the maintenance-free, masculine look of a shaved head. We welcome you to book a consultation with Dr. Cory Torgerson to talk about your goals and options and to get your confidence back.
