Hair-loss is an issue that affects many people in their lifetime, and it is something that people often feel embarrassed or self-conscious about. It is estimated that 1 in 5 American males will suffer some form of hair-loss which can be down to a vast number of reasons. Issues such as alopecia, hormones, age, receding hairlines, male and female pattern baldness, and illnesses can cause people to feel uncomfortable with their own hair. It is no surprise therefore, that scientists and researchers are constantly looking at new ways to prevent or reduce the signs of losing hair. Treatments can be in the form of medication, transplants or procedures such as Scalp Micro Pigmentation. SMP is the fastest growing method to combat hair-loss as it is non-invasive, cost-efficient and long lasting. SMP works for alopecia, receding hairlines, baldness in males or females and to combat scars that can often remain after a hair transplant process.
Scalp micro pigmentation is a non-medical hair loss treatment that does not require any kind of surgery, it is a fast-growing method whereby natural pigments are applied into the skin in a ‘stippling’ pattern. The stippling pattern creates a natural look as it enables a shaded effect instead of having one block colour. SMP can create the appearance of hair density without adding any hair follicles. In the process the pigments are applied into the dermal layer of the scalp with needles in order to create an effect that is both natural and long lasting. As SMP is an imitation of hair instead of a transplant, it can have a multitude of uses. SMP from SMP Rochdale is often preferred by men who want the look of a close shave instead of having a wig, transplant or going completely bald. In another instance, where a male or female’s hair is thinning and the scalp is visible, SMP can be used to create the perception of hair instead of the scalp. SMP can also be used to combat the immediate visibility of a receding hairline in its ability create an aesthetically denser hairline.
The process of Scalp Micro Pigmentation also knows as SMP is really rather simple and is not invasive. By using a needle, SMP is able to produce ‘microdot tattoos’ onto the scalp in a stippling pattern. Stippling is a method that has been used for many years by artists and is a successful way to create areas of shade and depth by creating a series of dots. If the dots are placed closer together, the area will appear darker as it will appear lighter when the dots are more separated. Although SMP uses a needle, the treatment is very different to a conventional tattoo. The needle is inserted at a much shallower depth, and the ink used is created from natural pigments that match the client’s hair.
There are many methods to treat hair-loss, all of which have their own positives and negatives, it is up to the preference of the client when deciding what treatment to go for. Options vary from medications, wigs or hair transplants, but SMP is currently the fastest growing in popularity.
SMP restores receding hairlines or baldness with a natural pigment. Many people feel the need to have SMP even after having a hair transplant to cover the signs of scarring from surgery. It is also an ideal option for those wanting to create the appearance of hair where there may be a small bald patch or the scalp may be visible from hair loss. Because the process isn’t just a tattoo, it looks a lot more realistic and natural due to the pigmentation. It creates a realistic illusion of hair without having to go through surgery or other more intensive treatments.
Many other treatments require a fully shaved head in order to work, however if the individual wants the treatment in order to add some colour to thinning patches, it is fine to arrive with your hair as normal. This could be a real benefit for men with longer hair or for women who just want an illusion of hair in certain patches without having to alter their image before the treatment.
SMP uses specific ink that is created to not fade or discolour like tattoo ink. It also doesn’t go as far into the skin as it only is applied in the dermal layer of the scalp. The treatment may need a few courses dependant on the individual, but it is a much quicker process that does not restrict or affect the client’s day-to-day life immediately before or after.
Another benefit of scalp micro pigmentation is that it can be partially or fully removed in one session in case the client decides they want a different style or look entirely. This ability to change the image is a major advantage as you are not bound by one decision.
