What Is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Around the world, millions of people are struggling with thinning hair, or will at some point during their life. In fact, it is estimated that 55% of women and 70% of men will experience some degree of hair loss as they grow older. For some, the struggle with thinning hair can begin as soon as their early 20s, especially in young men. Women most commonly begin noticing hair loss during or after menopause.
The effects of losing one’s hair can be devastating, taking a toll on an individual’s confidence and self-esteem. In an effort to reclaim a positive self-image, hair loss sufferers spend millions of dollars a year on various products and services meant to restore their hair, but they are still left frustrated with much more scalp visible than they would like to see.
There is a very effective and non-intrusive treatment available for both men and women who are suffering from male or female pattern baldness or any other type of genetic hair loss. The treatment is scalp micropigmentation, and it can give you a more defined and natural-looking hairline and the look of a fuller head of hair. So what is scalp micropigmentation exactly and how does it work?
Scalp micropigmentation involves replicating the look and pattern of your own hair follicles by placing tiny dots of a special pigment into the upper dermis of your scalp. This is accomplished with specialized tools that use tiny needles perfectly designed to the width of a human hair to place the pigment into the skin. When done properly by an expertly trained and highly skilled technician the results look natural and are undetectable.
When the treatment is complete you will have the look of a dense, full head of hair no matter if your hair is shaved or long and regardless of the degree of your hair loss. Men with completely bald areas will have the look of a full head of hair that has been shaved. And for both men and women with thinning hair scalp micropigmentation reduces the contrast between the color of the scalp and the color of the hair to give the remaining hair a much fuller and thicker appearance.
Scalp micropigmentation is quickly growing in popularity in the US. Hundreds of thousands of hair loss sufferers, both men and women, have opted for scalp micropigmentation over other hair restoration options like wigs or hair transplant surgery. A major part of the popularity of this procedure is due to the natural-looking results, but it is also popular because it gives you instant visible results with little to no pain and virtually zero downtime. Scalp micropigmentation also does not require donor hair, drugs, or cover-ups. So you can improve your appearance without it interfering with your life.
Many people can benefit from scalp micropigmentation including those who want a denser look in certain areas of their scalp, those who wear their hair shaved and want a more defined hairline, those suffering from various types of alopecia, those who are not yet good candidates for transplant surgery and those seeking to hide birthmarks, burns, or scars on their scalp.
Because everyone and their needs are different, a consultation is the first step towards a fuller-looking head of hair with scalp micropigmentation. Together with your technician you can develop a treatment plan, decide how you want your hairline to look to best compliment your facial features, and select pigment colors that will work well with your natural hair color and skin tone.
You do not have to just accept your thinning hair as an inevitable part of life. You can do something about it quickly, safely, and effectively with scalp micropigmentation. You deserve to look great and feel good about yourself again.
