Varieties of Scalp Micropigmentation: Which One Is for You?

When it comes to hair loss, no two clients are alike. For some individuals, hair loss can be a hereditary issue passed down from one generation to the next. For others, stress can be the cause. In fact, there are many reasons behind hair loss, including poor diet, certain medical conditions, and overstyling of the hair. All of these can be attributed to mild thinning or considerable shedding of hair.

The first thing to do is find out why your hair is falling out and, once a cause is determined, you can start to address the problem with the appropriate form of treatment.

There are many different patterns of hair loss, visible at various locations around the scalp. These are some of the most common:

  • Thinning hair at the temples
  • Receding hairline
  • The crown of the scalp is more visible as the part in the hair grows wider
  • Bald spots are noticeable at the back and/or sides of the head.

Hair loss can result in a lack of confidence in one's appearance. Knowing the cause behind your particular hair loss challenges is imperative towards addressing and correcting the problem with the most effective solution for treatment.

The Most Common Forms of SMP Treatment

The form of scalp micropigmentation that best addresses your unique hair loss challenges is determined during an initial consultation with one of our practitioners. These are the forms of SMP treatment that we have administered to our clients who have presented us with a variety of complex causes of hair loss:

Density Increase

Clients who have started thinning along the hairline or at the temples will notice the scalp becoming more prominent. It may force the client to change their hairstyle and cause some level of embarrassment when he or she looks in the mirror. But scalp micropigmentation can shade in the visible portions of the scalp to add volume and density to your hair.

This is accomplished by depositing plant-based pigments into the top layer of the scalp through a process that is very similar to tattooing. The pigments are chosen to match the color of your existing hair so the SMP treatment and the hair blend seamlessly with one another and recreate the appearance of a full head of hair.

Hairline Reconstruction

Clients experiencing hair loss may show signs of it in a receding hairline, resulting in a higher than normal forehead. Scalp micropigmentation can restore the hairline to a more natural-looking state by reconstructing it. The client can choose to have it appear similar to the way it looked prior to the hair loss or give it a completely new look.

Our practitioner will work with you in providing recommendations and guidelines for the hairline that fits the shape of your head and your facial features, but you decide how your new hairline will be reconstructed with scalp micropigmentation treatment.

Scar Concealment

Scalp micropigmentation is also an effective method for concealing cranial scars due to injury, surgery, or previous hair transplantation procedures like FUT or FUE. The amount of scar tissue, the size and placement of the scar, and the degree of height or depth in the surface layer of the scalp all play a role in determining if micropigmentation can achieve the desired results of the client.

The practitioner who will perform the SMP treatment will first examine the shape and texture of the scar. If the texture of the skin along the surface of the scar is too aggressive or displaying signs of a skin condition, the pigments will not be retained properly and the procedure may not be a success. That is why it's important to schedule a consultation with one of our practitioners who will assess the scar and the existing hair surrounding it to determine if scalp micropigmentation is right for you.

If you are an ideal candidate for the procedure, the practitioner will implant the pigments into the skin over and around the scar to blend with your existing hair and leave you with a completely natural look; No one will be able to tell you have had SMP treatments to conceal the scar.
