How Scalp Micropigmentation Helps Women With Hair Loss Issues

There are many reasons why women lose their hair, from hormonal changes to medical conditions. And while there are several treatments available to help address hair loss, some women still struggle to find a solution that works for them.

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is one option that has been gaining popularity in recent years as a way to help women with hair loss issues. The treatment involves injecting pigment into the scalp to create the illusion of fuller, thicker hair.

So how does scalp micropigmentation help women with hair loss? Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of SMP.

It can be used to cover up thinning areas.

Scalp micropigmentation can be used to cover up areas of thinning hair and create the appearance of thicker, fuller hair. It is not intended to produce hair-like patterns similar to those created by microblading on the eyebrows. Instead, a skilled aesthetician will make tiny tattoos on the scalp, arranged into layers to create natural depth and definition. 

It is a non-invasive treatment.

This makes it a great option for women who are not keen on the idea of undergoing surgery or taking medication to treat their hair loss. A topical numbing agent will be applied to the scalp before the treatment begins. Despite this, you may still feel some discomfort. Micropigmentation has some minor dangers, such as sensitivity to certain materials in the pigment and infection from getting a tattoo. Work only with a reputable doctor, or SMP practitioner to make sure every possible precaution is being taken to ensure your safety. 

It is a long-lasting solution.

You may need more than one session to achieve your desired look. Once the pigment has been injected into the scalp, it will remain there for a long time. In most cases, the effects of scalp micropigmentation can last for several years, making it a much more permanent solution than other options such as wigs or hairpieces. Micropigmentation is considered a semi-permanent solution because all skin naturally exfoliates itself, so the treated region will eventually fade.

It is suitable for all types of hair loss.

SMB can be used to treat all types of hair loss, for instance as a result of cancer treatment and male/female pattern baldness or alopecia. People who have scalp acne and other allergies like psoriasis should not undergo the procedure during a flare-up.  When done correctly, it can be difficult to tell that you have had the SMP treatment. This is in contrast to other options such as hair transplants, which can often leave behind a visible scar. Scalp micropigmentation can give you a very natural-looking result. 

It is affordable.

Compared to other hair loss treatments, scalp micropigmentation is relatively affordable. This makes it a great option for women who are on a budget or who have been unsuccessful with other treatments. The price varies depending on how much of your scalp needs to be covered. The more important thing to consider aside from cost is the skill and reputation of your doctor or SMP practitioner. Quality clinics will have the certifications and permits to ensure the safety and satisfaction of their clients.
