Using Scalp Micropigmentation To Treat Male Pattern Baldness
Hair loss caused by male pattern baldness is not, in and of itself, indicative of any other medical conditions.
And does not pose any health risks to men.
Unfortunately, its effects are almost always permanent, and many men suffering from male pattern baldness experience anxiety, self-consciousness, and a loss of self esteem.
- Hair Transplants: Hair transplants involve transplanting a section of the scalp that still has hair growth onto a section of the scalp that is experiencing thinning or complete hair loss. Unfortunately, these procedures can be extremely painful, expensive, can produce significant scarring, and, in many cases, do not result in the successful regrowth of hair.
- Hair Pieces: Wigs and hair pieces are another option available to men experiencing hair loss from male pattern baldness. Unfortunately, many men experience uncertainty at the non-permanent nature of this treatment option and the fear that accompanies the possibility of the hair piece suddenly and unexpectedly being displaced.
- Prescription Medication: There are a number of prescription medications that are marketed to men who experience male pattern baldness. These drugs claim to be able to stop the advance of hair thinning that results from male pattern baldness. Unfortunately, for many men, by the time they begin using these drugs, their hair loss has already progressed to a point where these medications are no longer effective. Additionally, some of these medications come with very serious side effects that can cause users to suffer lasting harm.
Unlike these other treatment options, Scalp Micropigmentation offers an effective, guaranteed, and cost-effective treatment option for male pattern baldness. Scalp Micropigmentation is an advanced cosmetic procedure in which dots of pigment are added to your scalp, much like getting a tattoo.
These dots are carefully matched to your skin tone and natural hair color, and are carefully placed across your head, resulting in the appearance of a full head of hair that has been cut or shaved close to the scalp

Losing your hair can be a traumatic experience for anyone.
This can have a particularly negative affect on your sense of self and emotional well-being.
A full head of hair is often associated with beauty and a positive self image.
Women’s hairlines rarely recede like men’s.
Instead it usually begins with hair loss radiating from the top of the head.
This hair thinning slowly spreads across your scalp.
This is were SMP can help you with a solution that provides camouflage with no damage to the existing follicles.
SMP works by delivering a bespoke, non-metallic pigment immediately beneath the epidermis using a very short thin needle.
Each of these dots is perfectly colour-matched to your existing follicles to exactly create the illusion of far greater density.
Every case is different which is why we offer a free consultation and advice on all options available.
Using Scalp Micropigmentation To Treat Scars & Alopecia
Scarring to your head can occur from general accidents, Alopecia or hair transplants (Follicular Unit Transplantation).
The most common, this is the form that is hereditary and affects up to 50% of all men and women by the time they reach their 40’s.
For men it manifests as a receding at the temples, sometimes accompanied, sometimes followed by, a thinning at the crown.
For those who end up at the extreme end of the spectrum there will be further receding of the hair around the crown, eventually leaving just the classic horseshoe ring of hair around the base of the head.
For women, it presents as a more general thinning across the top and back of the head, usually leaving the hairline intact.
As in men, the condition can progress to a state of complete loss in the affected area.
This presents as circular patches of hair loss, which can be partial or total, and is usually bought on by stress.
There are auto-immune conditions which can also act as a trigger.
The second most common form it can affect anyone at any age.
It is, in fact, a generic or umbrella term that covers a multitude of sins.
Whenever the body is going through major changes, hormones can be generated which may lead to hair loss.
Chemotherapy will be the most familiar, but these changes might be triggered by something as common as childbirth.
Even fevers, or the sort of severe infections and illnesses that bring on a fever, can lead to increased hair loss.
The range of triggers is broad and the precise way they work, due to the complex biochemistry involved, a challenge.
However, regardless of the trigger, Telogen presents in exactly the same way every time – An increase in the number of follicles stuck in the telogen phase, when the follicle is dormant or resting.
This is a part of the process where understanding is becoming far more detailed and for which treatments are available.
This occurs, as the name suggests, when the hair is pulled.
Its frequency is defined by the popularity of hairstyles like braids and weaves and usually presents in the area where the pulling is greatest, often along the hairline.
The current popularity of hair extensions has seen a spike in demand for treatment… Caught early the sufferer can hope for an eventual return to a full head of hair, though that process can be a lengthy one.
Scalp Micropigmentation is a excellent treatment technique to camouflage the affected area’s, so you can again start to feel your best.
This solution will provide some effective relief from the visual signs of this type of hair loss or scarring.
