Approximately 5% of women suffer from balding. Female hair loss is not as common as hair loss in men, but genetic factors as well as environmental and lifestyle conditions can increase a woman’s chance of thinning hair or balding. Factors that can contribute to hair loss in women may include stress, malnutrition, pregnancy, surgery, and childbirth. Scalp micro pigmentation (SMP), also known as a medical hairline tattoo, is rapidly becoming a popular choice for women suffering from hair loss.
The techniques that technicians use to perform non-surgical SMP on female recipients varies slightly from the techniques used during a male medical hair line tattoo, as the desired aesthetic outcome itself varies between the sexes. There are, of course, exceptions to the rule, but generally speaking, when performing surgery-free SMP on men, the practitioner will aim to mimic and replicate individual shaven hair follicles.
