How Can Scalp Micropigmentation Help Me?

Hair loss is difficult for anyone, but for women is can be highly distressing. Women usually experience hair loss due to most alopecia or female pattern hair loss; they do not experience complete hair loss but rather diffuse thinning caused by hormonal changes to the body, such as pregnancy or menopause. The pigment can be implanted between the thinning hairs, reducing the contrast between the hair and the scalp and giving the hair a fuller and thicker appearance. Female hair loss is measured using The Ludwig Scale. This measures the extent of female hair loss on a scale of I to III.

SMP differs significantly from traditional tattooing in both technique and pigments used. While traditional tattoos involve inserting ink into the deeper layers of the skin, SMP employs micro-needles to deposit pigments at a shallower depth. This precise placement results in a more natural look, as the pigments simulate hair follicles without creating a heavily saturated appearance.

Additionally, SMP pigments are designed to be semi-permanent and fade gradually, which is crucial for maintaining the natural appearance of the scalp. Traditional tattoo ink tends to fade into unnatural colors over time, which is not desirable in the context of SMP.

Proper aftercare is essential for ensuring the longevity and vibrancy of your SMP. After the procedure, it’s crucial to avoid exposing the scalp to excessive moisture, direct sunlight, or strenuous physical activity for the first few days. Following the SMP artist’s specific aftercare instructions is essential for promoting optimal healing and ensuring the best results.

Generally, clients are advised to avoid harsh hair products and direct sun exposure on the treated area. Mild, pH-balanced cleansers are recommended for washing the scalp, and it’s essential to refrain from scratching or picking at the treated area. Adhering to these aftercare guidelines will promote a smooth healing process and help maintain the integrity of the SMP.

One of the most significant advantages of SMP is its relatively low level of discomfort. Most clients report only mild discomfort during the procedure, with the sensation often described as tolerable. Topical anesthetics are applied to the scalp before the treatment to minimize any discomfort or sensitivity. The duration of the procedure varies depending on the extent of scalp coverage required, but it typically lasts a few hours per session.

SMP’s mild discomfort is well worth the transformative results it offers, as clients can achieve a natural-looking hairline and enhanced hair density without undergoing invasive surgical procedures.

Scalp Micropigmentation offers a semi-permanent solution to hair loss concerns, and its longevity varies depending on individual factors and maintenance. With proper care, SMP can last for several years, allowing clients to enjoy its transformative benefits for an extended period. The pigments used in SMP are specifically formulated for long-lasting results, gradually fading over time. However, regular touch-up sessions are recommended to maintain the vibrancy and sharpness of the pigments, ensuring the SMP remains impeccable.
