Scalp Micropigmentation as most already know was originally intended for baldness. Over time it has been able to progress to be able to help some of those with female pattern baldness or dispersed hair thinning, men with limited diffuse thinning or people with Alopecia Areata to keep the hair they have. We will discuss these individually in this article.
This can be done for the right candidates without shaving their hair. To qualify for this treatment, you must have an intact hairline, diffuse thinning and your hair must be long enough to camouflage and conceal the thinning areas.
The idea is to fill in between thinning areas to achieve that fuller, thicker looking hair. And each treatment is tailored to the specific hair loss.
Female pattern baldness or dispersed hair thinning can cause severe distress to many women as their hair is the first most noticeable part of her. This can also impact on their mental health. But fortunately scalp micropigmentation can be done for either medical issue if you still have sufficient hair density and volume. It will conceal the thinning areas and make them practically undetectable. The provider will match the pigment to your hair colour and scalp creating a full, natural look.
Men with limited diffuse thinning can be the right candidate for scalp micropigmentation. Limited diffuse thinning can cause confidence issues and the candidate may not be comfortable shaving his head. As thinning is not as severe as alopecia men with long hair can still have scalp micropigmentation without shaving their head. Even those with receded hairlines can be eligible to keep their hair longer if they have a reasonable overall density including the crown and does not breach the boundaries of the frontal hairline but further recession of the hair must be kept shaved to maintain an effective illusion.
Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks healthy hair follicles leading to hair loss. This equally affects men and women, causing small patches of hair loss on the scalp. The hair usually regrows in around 12 months’ time, which creates small hair follicles inside the hair loss area, enabling the provider to do the procedure by matching the hair colour and camouflaging the patches.
Thinning is quite common for both men and women and although the treatment can be time consuming, as it is done in sections to ensure you get great results, it is to ensure your hair looks fuller, thicker and realistic. Do you qualify? Scalp Micropigmentation could solve this problem for you.
