SMP is recommended for individuals with:

+ Thinning hair

+ Receding hairline

+ Baldness

The procedure can be performed on both men and women. Statistics show that up to 65% of men will suffer from noticeable hair loss by the age of 60 and 70% by the age of 80. On the other hand, up to 80% of women over the age of 60 will experience noticeable balding.

Research

Studies show that the normal human head has an average of 110,000 hair follicles. Unfortunately, several factors can cause hair loss or thinning hair, such as:

Treatments

Certain medications or medical treatments

Hair loss is one of the most widely reported side effects of certain medical treatments and medications such as anti-depressants, oral contraceptives, and hypertension drugs, as well as chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Trauma

Emotional or psychological trauma

Traumatic and stressful events in a person’s life, such as the death of a family member, can trigger hair loss. Regardless of the cause, patients who suffer from hair loss or thinning hair tend to suffer from low self-esteem, especially since effective hair restoration treatments usually involve surgery and can be very costly.

Hereditary Factors

Pattern baldness within the family

This is the most common cause of hair loss. This is a condition called male or female- pattern baldness, which is hereditary.

Fortunately, a scalp micropigmentation gives patients a chance to restore the natural appearance of hair follicles that are breaking through the scalp without resorting to more invasive treatments, such as hair transplants. Although it does not cause hair to grow back naturally, it effectively improves the appearance of baldheads by mimicking the appearance of shaved hair or bringing receding hairlines forward.

How is the Procedure Performed?

A scalp micropigmentation treatment requires 2 to 3 outpatient sessions that are spaced at least 2 days apart. Each session varies in time depending on the size of the treatment area but in most cases 1 - 4 hours.

Natural

To create a natural, realistic appearance, specialists carefully select the correct shade and density that will achieve the best results. If the patient has existing hair, they also make sure that the results blend seamlessly with real hair.

Shape

To apply the treatment, the physician will first choose the correct needle group, the right penetration depth, and the appropriate needle angle to use. He then mixes the correct pigment colour that will blend well with the patient’s scalp or existing hair. Using the selected needle, he delivers specialised pigments into specific areas of the scalp, carefully forming the correct shape.

Restoration

The non-surgical procedure is carried out by experienced hair restoration surgeons who understand the intricacies of proper hairline design together with qualified staff. 

Possible Risks and Complications

It is normal for patients to experience some redness in the area where the pigments are applied and this usually lingers within 2 to 4 hours following the procedure. Other than this, the treatment has no known side effects, making it safer than surgical hair transplantation and hair loss medications.
