Using Scalp Micropigmentation as an Alternate Hair Loss Solution to Thinning Hair

Hair Restoration

For Scalp Micropigmentation

We have an average of 100,000 to 150,000 hairs on our head, and we typically lose up to 100 of these strands on a regular basis without any issues. At any given time, 90% of these strands of hair are undergoing active growth from the follicles to replenish the lost hundred hairs or so. However, there are hair loss conditions such as involutional alopecia, androgenic alopecia, and telogen effluvium that affect the growth and hair follicle life cycle, leading to an imbalance of strands lost versus strands grown. These conditions are commonly experienced by men, women, and even children. They can significantly affect an individual’s appearance, confidence, and self-esteem in a negative manner.

Currently, there is a variety of hair loss treatments and options available for regaining the luscious hair that was lost, including prescription medications like Propecia and Rogaine, wigs, hair weaving, and hair transplants such as follicular unit extraction (FUE). At the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic, Dr. Torgerson and our team of qualified professionals offer the most recent and advanced techniques as solutions for hair loss restoration to help our clients manage their hair loss and reach their goals.

Using Scalp Micropigmentation As An Alternate Hair Loss Solution To Thinning Hair

Scalp Micropigmentation

An advanced treatment option that is highly sought-after and now being offered at our clinic in Toronto is SMP, otherwise known as scalp micropigmentation. This is an alternative solution for hair loss treatment for both men and women concerned with thinning hair.

SMP is performed using semi-permanent ink placed with tiny, hair-like precision all over the scalp. This hair restoration technique is non-surgical and is very similar to tattooing. It involves a special tool that applies small amounts of ink that matches the client’s natural hair colour to the scalp to create the illusion of hair growth in specific areas. Scalp micropigmentation has a number of benefits: simplicity, little required maintenance, minimal pain during the procedure, and relative affordability compared to other hair loss treatment or restoration options. SMP is also a great alternative solution for busy professionals because it requires little downtime and will not create a noticeably “altered” appearance. Instead, SMP gives a more youthful look that makes it difficult for people to put their finger on the reason.

The purpose of SMP is to add the appearance of hair density to the scalp in areas with thinning hair and/or to create a clean-shaved hair appearance in only a few sessions. Many men find that completely shaving the head for a buzzed look is fashionable and seamlessly blends remaining natural hairs with the micropigmentation. The hairs are layered in various shades to mimic real hair tone variability, and the effect is almost imperceptible from the real thing.
