Scalp Micropigmentation Benefits

Cosmetic & Surgical Hair Loss Treatments

For Scalp Micropigmentation

Men and women are seeking cosmetic, surgical, and medical hair loss treatments more than ever before, and the availability of options – both credible and not – are sometimes overwhelming. Androgenic alopecia, hairline receding, balding, and thinning hair can affect a person’s confidence and image. Hair transplant surgery technology has come a long way. At the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic, hair transplant is one of our most popular options for restoring a full head of hair. Not everyone is a good candidate for this option, however, and some people are seeking something different. A procedure that is gaining popularity among younger men in Toronto is called scalp micropigmentation (SMP).

Otherwise known as hair follicle replication or hair tattooing, this safe, quick, and easy procedure uses micro-follicle tattooing with semi-permanent ink to create the look of a “buzzed” shaved head for people who have lost most of their hair. It can also fill in the scalp for people who have hair but notice that it is thinning. The tiny, realistic-looking hairs create the illusion of dense hair growth or can completely cover a bald head. They appear as stubble, giving the impression that a full head of hair is just beginning to grow back.

Cost Effective SMP

Facial Symmetry

SMP is safe. As far as risks go, bleeding, infection, swelling, scars, and chemicals in hair growth formulas are all a reality with most hair regeneration options. SMP places extremely small dots of safe, semi-permanent ink superficially in the scalp. Any side effects reported are negligible when performed by a trained expert in a sterile setting.

SMP is cost-effective. Continually purchasing expensive, medical-grade hair products or pills can add up. Hair transplant surgery can provide permanent results that are well worth the cost, but it is a more expensive option. Many people don’t necessarily want an obvious change in the form of a full head of hair. Creating the appearance of shaving their head intentionally is satisfying and sufficient. Considering that the results will usually last up to 5 years before requiring a touch-up, this is a good investment.

Results Of SMP

The results of SMP are realistic. If you are bald, suddenly appearing with a full head of hair via a hair system may raise some eyebrows. Often, men who have classic male pattern baldness will shave the sides and back of their head to create a more harmonious look. The tiny hairs still in the follicles are visible. Nothing will appear more subtle than carrying those over to cover the whole head. The specialized needles are extremely fine, and a skilled, experienced practitioner will create very realistic hairs that are indistinguishable from the real thing. More than one sitting may be recommended to layer colours and to ensure adequate fill. Scars can also be conveniently disguised through this method, which is welcome news for anyone with a linear scar at the back of the head due to previous surgery.

Scalp Micropigmentation

This is the easiest method by far. There is no need for expensive hair system cleaning and maintenance, no glue or sweaty hair piece, no worry of topical sprays rubbing off, and no incisions or downtime are required. Once your treatment is done, there is nothing you need to do except get dressed every day feeling that your look is complete. The shaved head style works well in a professional environment and for all ages. It is as easy as being bald but without the embarrassment or aged appearance. There is no better way to get back realistic, no-maintenance hair that makes you look years younger.
