Hair loss is a prevalent condition affecting people of all sexes and ages around the world. In the UK, around 1 in 5 women over the age of 25 are currently experiencing some type of hair loss or thinning. The rate is even higher among men-around 39% will go bald at some point. Thankfully, there are now plenty of hair loss treatments available, ranging from surgical to non-invasive procedures.
One such treatment is scalp micropigmentation from SMP Bradford (hair tattoo Bradford), or more commonly referred to as hair tattooing. Scalp micropigmentation is a non-surgical solution for different types of hair loss, including thinning hair, male or female pattern hair loss, receding hairline, scarring, and alopecia areata among others.
You’ve probably already heard of eyebrow microblading or eyebrow tattooing. Scalp micropigmentation is a similar procedure done on the scalp.
The treatment involves injecting pigment into the dermal layer of the scalp to mimic the appearance of hair follicles. By applying follicle-sized dots under the skin, we can create the illusion of a closely shaved buzz-cut for clients with receding hairlines or a denser appearance in cases involving thinning hair.
It’s important to note, however, that scalp micropigmentation is more than just a normal tattoo done on your scalp. This intricate process requires a great degree of skill and knowledge of the human body to ensure the pigmentation looks natural and undetectable. It also involves specialised equipment not found in traditional tattoo parlours.
And because scalp micropigmentation is a semi-permanent hair loss solution (requiring touch-ups every few years), the procedure is best left in the hands of a specialist and not just any tattoo artist.
The detail required to make your ‘hair tattoo’ look as natural as possible means that scalp micropigmentation can’t be a one-time treatment.
The process begins with an initial consultation to determine whether scalp micropigmentation is the right hair loss treatment for you. If you are a suitable candidate for the procedure, the specialist will examine your scalp and design a look based on your feedback and areas requiring treatment. This often involves using a marker to draw a new hairline or highlight areas between thicker sections of hair that need more density.
During the actual treatment process, the specialist will use a machine equipped with a super-fine needle to apply natural pigment to the scalp. We take great care to match your pigment with your skin tone and hair colour, ensuring that the treated areas look as natural as possible.
The entire scalp micropigmentation process from SMP Bradford can take as many as four sessions—each one lasting up to four hours depending on the extent of hair loss or scarring. Treatments are spaced out to give the scalp enough time to heal in between sessions. To prevent irritating the scalp, we advise our clients to follow a basic aftercare regimen:
Generally speaking, scalp micropigmentation from SMP Bradford will last up to three to five years. Over time, the pigment will fade (much like a tattoo), at which time you can return to the clinic to get simple touch-ups.
There are several reasons why people suffering from hair loss may want to consider scalp micropigmentation.
No Recovery Period
Unlike hair loss treatments that involve surgery, scalp micropigmentation does not require a recovery period. Generally speaking, you can return to your daily life right after each session. At the very least, we’ll recommend that you follow simple aftercare measures to prevent irritating your scalp and causing the pigment to fade prematurely.
Suitable for Different Types of Hair Loss
While hair tattoos often associated with pattern baldness and recession, it can also be ideal for clients with thinning hair, patch baldness, and scarring hair loss. Scalp micropigmentation can also help recovering cancer patients feel more secure by bridging the gap between hair loss and regrowth after treatment.
Hair Tattoo from SMP Bradford Is Relatively Affordable
Because scalp micropigmentation is a semi-permanent solution to hair solution, it doesn’t require you to purchase any expensive shampoos or creams to maintain the appearance of your hair. It’s also significantly less expensive than a hair transplant.
Treatment is Straightforward
With scalp micropigmentation, you can rest assured that you’re getting what you pay for. There are no false claims or bogus tonics that promise to regrow your hair. Micropigmentation has nothing to do with hair growth, nor does it claim to be.
It’s for Both Men and Women
While it’s true that the majority of clients who get scalp micropigmentation are men, this doesn’t mean that women can’t undergo the treatment. As mentioned earlier, micropigmentation can create the appearance of a fuller head of hair, something women with thinning hair may be interested in.
If you’re considering getting scalp micropigmentation treatment, it’s important to ensure that you seek the advice of a qualified micropigmentation practitioner. Look for hair loss clinics and treatment centres with the following:
When talking to a specialist or clinic, don’t hesitate to ask questions about scalp micropigmentation, whether it has to do with their experience or the duration of the treatment.
Scalp micropigmentation may be a non-invasive procedure, but it’s not something to be taken lightly either. We encourage you to do as much research as you can and look for a specialist you’re sufficiently comfortable with.
