Scalp Micro-pigmentation to Camouflage Receding Hairlines, Hair Loss or Thinning Hair
Scalp Micro Pigmentation – hair loss treatment for men
By literally simulating the appearance of hair, micro pigmentation can help camouflage receding hairlines male pattern baldness and medical hair loss.
Regardless of your age or gender, hair loss or thinning can seriously affect your confidence and self-esteem. Whether through a trauma or medical condition, scalp micro pigmentation offers a non-invasive way to replicate thicker hair or realistic follicles, create a natural subtle look regardless of whether you have short or long hair.
- Natural looking
- Lasting 1 to 3 years
Micro-pigmentation is the technical name for semi permanent makeup and scalp-micro-pigmentation is simply micro pigmentation for the scalp.
Whether you have partial or complete hair loss, scalp micro-pigmentation or SMP will create a simulation of micro hairs on your scalp.
By literally simulating the appearance of hair, micro pigmentation will enhance your features creating a natural look that is subtle. By literally replicating real hair, this enhancement can also be used to help camouflage receding hairlines or facial hair.
Scalp micro-pigmentation just like with semi permanent makeup or cosmetic tattooing involves placing minute particles of colour pigment about a millimetre below the skin’s surface to simulate hair.
An expert will use different micropigmentation techniques, such as tiny dots to mimic hair follicles or a stubble effect and hair strokes, to produce a realistic finish.
For male pattern baldness, the treatment is carried out on the areas where hair is missing or thinning making them less visible creating the illusion of natural hair growth by reducing the contrast between any existing hair and the skin.
The length of your hair loss treatment will depend on the size of the area that needs to be treated. A frontal hairline can take an hour while if the client is at the Norwood VII level, then the treatment time can be more than five hours. Sessions are split into 2 or 3 individual treatment sessions to build depth for a realistic finish.
Each case is treated as individual so Renée will be able to advise exactly how long the treatment will take once she has assessed the area to be treated and then a personal treatment plan can be created.
Most clients feel very little discomfort or none at all.
Scalp micro-pigmentation is semi-permanent. This means it should last between 1 and 3 years.
Aftercare instructions are given to the client and discussed in detail. In the following days after a treatment care must be taken to keep the area clean and dry.
