Women with pattern baldness and alopecia can now create the illusion of thicker, denser hair. Approximately 25% of our clients are women suffering from some sort of hair loss, either thinning of the hair or alopecia. There are many reasons why women may experience hair loss stemming from genetic predispositions, alopecia, stress and even menopause. Up to approximately 70% of women's hair is shed in large amounts. It is often precipitated by a response to a traumatic event, either physical or emotional.
Alopecia is an autoimmune disorder where the immune system attacks hair follicles. The second most common form of hair loss dermatologists see is a condition called Telogen Effluvium; a form of non-scarring alopecia characterized by diffuse hair shedding, often with an acute onset.
Solutions for Hair Loss
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a permanent solution for women with thinning areas on the crown and top of their heads. SMP creates the illusion of a full head of hair by creating an under-layer. For women with alopecia, SMP eliminates having to handle consistent spot balding. SMP is also used in camouflaging scars with the blending of surgical scars and temples of the face.
Scalp Micropigmentation stimulates hair growth. With repeated insertions of the needle into the dermal layer of the skin is known to stimulate, or bring back, the hair follicles. Every treatment is tailored specifically to each person's needs. Although SMP was originally designed for men, women are now taking advantage of its benefits and are being treated by the hundreds. If you are seeking for a permanent solution to hair loss or thinning, Scalp Micropigmentation may be exactly what you are looking for.
How does Micropigmentation Work?
When implanting our organic inks, the hair color is matched perfectly. We then choose a shade darker to create the illusion of a shadow. By doing this, clients receive the look of a full head of hair. During the procedure the needle strokes are done softly, breaking up the frontal hairline to create a more natural look. More dense strokes are added to the sides and the top of the thinning hair. This provides the maximum illusion of density because it reduces the contrast in the shades of color between the scalp and the hair. Each individual client's pain threshold is different. The procedure is quite painless, however there are certain areas of the head that are more sensitive; i.e. temple area for example. For this we offer numbing cream, although most clients do not need it. Most clients experience only a small amount of discomfort and may experience a mild sensitivity throughout the procedure.
A typical procedure requires two to three sessions to acquire the desired results. Each session is performed within one week of each other. Clients usually recover within hours after each session.
