What Is Scalp Micropigmentation, And Is It Right For You?

Scalp Micropigmentation

Correct Effects Of Hair Loss

Premature hair loss can cause emotional hardship for both men and women. It can be very difficult to conceal too. The social stigmas associated with balding and premature aging, in both men and women, often have a severe and detrimental impact on self-esteem. As anyone who has experienced hair loss can attest to, it can be somewhat disheartening to look in the mirror and see skin peeking out where there should be hair. It is far more than a simple aesthetic issue. Hair loss impacts your day-to-day life and the way you interact with other individuals. Indeed, our appearance affects every aspect of our lives. After all, confidence is important, and first impressions last a lifetime.

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is among the latest innovations in non-surgical advancements for correcting the aesthetic effects of partial or complete hair loss. Also known as a medical hairline tattoo, scalp micro-pigmentation is a cosmetic procedure used to enhance or correct hairline aesthetics. SMP is suitable for both men and women, regardless of hair colour or ethnicity.

Scalp Micropigmentation

A Permanent Solution

Enhance And Correct Your Hairline

The procedure is performed by a licensed, qualified practitioner who is skilled in replicating and recreating hair pigment. Often several similar shades are used to achieve a realistic colour gradient.

Special attention is paid to each recipient’s natural growth patterns to realistically replicate and imitate the naturally occurring currents in your hair, using the latest in micropigmentation technology to mimic the pigment spacing already present in naturally occurring follicles.

SMP can make thinning hair appear fuller, restore a receding hairline, camouflage the symptoms of alopecia, mask residual scarring from previous hair transplants, and effectively erase scars or birthmarks. The procedure itself is completed using a cartridge of three needles that work together to gently deliver natural-looking pigment into the second dermal layer, resulting in a permanent hairline tattoo. Scalp micro-pigmentation is typically completed over the course of 3 sessions. Each session lasts 3 to 4 hours, which allows for a subtle and gradual restoration of the hairline.

Scalp Micropigmentation

Ideal For

The Following Individuals

Scalp micropigmentation is ideal for individuals suffering from:
  • Crown balding: Degenerative hair thinning/balding on the crown of the head, often causing the appearance of premature aging
  • Receding hairline: When the hair loss occurs from the forehead
  • Alopecia: Small bald patches occurring in one or more locations around the scalp
  • Defused hair loss: Thinning of the hair along the top of the scalp, which can occur at any age, in both sexes. This is caused by anything that disrupts the body’s natural production of hair follicles, including emotional stress, endocrine imbalances, and nutritional deficiencies.
  • Complete or near-complete hair loss: A hairline medical tattoo is ideal for individuals who have suffered partial or complete hair loss. SMP is often referred to as “sudden hairline gain”.

Scalp Micropigmentation For Women

Nearly 5% of women suffer from some form of hair thinning/loss condition. SMP can be carried out using the exact same treatment for women, even if they have long hair. A medical hairline tattoo will create a fuller appearance, as the micropigmented areas are less noticeable than a bare scalp. The human head has, on average, approximately 2,000 hairs per square inch. When that number dwindles, it is noticeable. A medical hairline tattoo can restore the appearance of thinning follicles and deliver realistic, natural-looking results.
