Who Can Benefit From Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is an out-patient cosmetic solution for hair loss and thinning hair that is a semi-permanent solution for men and women who are experiencing thinning hair and the beginning stages of balding.
For men, scalp micropigmentation treatment for hair loss involves careful matching with the patient’s own hair to replicate the appearance of shaven hair. This is accomplished by carefully adding thousands of randomly placed micro-pigmentation “dots” to the patient’s scalp. The ultimate effect is to hide or mask the effects of thinning hair and balding and exactly replicate the appearance of a full head of hair, shaved closely.
SMP Scalp Micropigmentation can also be used very effectively to mask old, unsightly hair transplant scars resulting from FUT or “strip method” hair transplants, thereby allowing patients who have had FUT hair transplants in the past to now be able to style their hair in modern, short hairstyles.
Women experiencing thinning hair also find Scalp Micropigmentation helpful in adding contrast and the appearance of fullness to thinning hair areas, allow them to go about their daily lives with added confidence in the look of their hair.
