For many people, having a full head of hair is important for their self-esteem and confidence. But with about 28 million women in the United States currently facing hair loss, there are people who don’t have the full head of hair they desire. Fortunately, there are options for hair restoration. One of the most effective modern hair loss solutions available today is scalp micropigmentation. This procedure is non-invasive and requires minimal recovery time. So let’s take a look at who may be a good candidate for scalp micropigmentation.
Scalp micropigmentation may be especially beneficial for men and women who:
- Are experiencing hair loss
- Suffer from alopecia
- Have a receding hairline
- Have thinning hair
- Want a stronger hairline
- Want to cover scars on their scalp
Overall, this procedure is great for anyone who may be experiencing hair loss or hair thinning. Generally, scalp micropigmentation is ideal for people who keep their head shaved or hair closely cut. But that’s not to say you have to look bald to benefit from this procedure.
Scalp micropigmentation is essentially a hair tattoo. Using special ink, the person performing the procedure inserts the ink to mimic real hair follicles. By using this method, someone with balding or thinning issues can have the image of real hair follicles on their scalp. So this procedure can be used on a completely bald spot or it can be used underneath hair to give the hair a denser look.
Unlike other procedures, like hair transplants, that require surgical procedures and actually moving hair follicles, scalp micropigmentation can add specifically sized and colored hair follicles with ink to reduce the appearance of the bald scalp.
Furthermore, if someone has scars on their scalp, including those from previous attempts at hair transplants, scalp micropigmentation can lessen the appearance of the scars. Overall, whether someone is looking for a fuller head of hair, a more defined hairline, or a scar cover-up, scalp micropigmentation can help.
If you are suffering from hair loss, you should know you’re not alone. But you don’t have to have a painful, lengthy surgical procedure to get your dream head of hair. With scalp micropigmentation, you’ll see immediate results and you can show your hair off with confidence again.
