The way we look and present ourselves to the world is incredibly important for our mental health and overall sense of wellbeing. A huge part of the way we look and express our personality is through our hair. So what happens when women suffer from alopecia and thinning hair? What happens when women no longer feel able to hide their thinning hair and surgical treatment is no longer an option? One non surgical option is that of scalp micropigmentation.
Below we explore what scalp micropigmentation is and why so many women are now embracing this type of treatment when they have issues with their hair. Scalp micropigmentation for women really is a great solution for female hair loss and alopecia. In essence, it is a guaranteed way to boost your self confidence and to live life to the fullest once more.
What exactly is scalp micropigmentation?
Scalp micropigmentation, also known as SMP, in simplistic terms is applying tattoos to the scalp. This permanent pigmentation is used on those areas of the scalp where hair has been lost, or where hair is very thin. It can also be used on areas of scarred skin. Trained tattoo artists conduct this treatment that is a permanent solution to give the appearance of a full head of thick hair.
Why many women opt for this treatment?
Let’s start by stating that scalp micropigmentation works very well with long hair, making it a great option for women who have hair loss. Initially, it was created for use on men’s bald scalps, but today it has so many benefits for women. It can be used to cover and then hide any bald spots, making it suitable for female pattern baldness. It can also be used on a receding hairline to give the appearance of hair growth. Thinning hair can also be made to appear thicker when a slightly darker pigmentation shade is used to that of your natural hair colour.
It won’t damage your scalp or long hair
Many women worry that scalp micropigmentation will damage their long hair, but this simply isn’t true. The treatment focuses only on the scalp, as the specially trained tattoo artist works around the hair follicle, so the needle does not touch the follicle. This ensures that your hair will not be harmed. It is also important to know that the needle is very short and only permeates the skin to a shallow depth of 2mm, meaning that the procedure will not affect any new hair growth in the future.
