About a quarter of our clients are women who are dealing with hair loss. This can include overall thinning or more aggressive forms such as alopecia areata. Female hair loss can be due to menopause, hereditary causes, or a condition known as telogen effluvium that usually follows a physical or emotional trauma, for example childbirth or a bereavement.
SMP solutions for female hair loss
We usually don’t show many pictures of women as it is more of an uncommon thing and we respect their privacy. This is the perfect procedure for women who are thinning because we create an underlayer which gives the illusion of a full head of hair.
Scalp micropigmentation not only gives the illusion of a full head of hair, but it actually stimulates new growth. The repetition of insertions to the dermal layer of skin is known to bring back hair follicles.
Scalp micropigmentation, otherwise known as SMP, is perfect for women who are thinning on the top and crown area of their head. We also have treated hundreds of female clients with alopecia, who wanted to avoid dealing with constant spot balding. We also have treated many women who have had facelift surgeries, due to scarring on the sides and temples of their head, it leaves bald patches. We will fill and camouflage scarring blending it evenly through the hair.
The needs of each client are unique, however rest assured that although scalp micropigmentation was originally developed for men, we have treated hundreds of women too. If you want to do something about your hair loss, scalp micropigmentation may provide the answer.
How does the process work?
The application of scalp micropigmentation is usually quite painless. There may be a little discomfort in more sensitive regions like the temples, but most people report only very mild sensitivity during their procedure. We offer our own numbing lotion for women who may be concerned about any discomfort, although for most people it really isn’t necessary.
When implanting our inks, we match the hair perfectly, then go one shade darker, to give the shadow illusion to get the ‘full head of hair’ look that is desired. We perform our procedure very softly through the frontal hairline and breaking up the impressions to give it the natural appearance. Going through the top and sides of thin hair, we go much more dense to reduce any contrast in shade between the color of the hair and the color of the scalp, to provide the maximum illusion of density.
This procedure usually requires 2-3 sessions to achieve the desired result. These procedures are completed within a week of each other, and the recovery time between each session can be as little as a few hours.
