Alopecia & Scars
While Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a popular treatment for thinning hair, baldness, and receding hairlines, it is also very effective for people with scalp scarring, or those suffering the effects of alopecia.
SMP and alopecia
The medical term alopecia refers to the body being unable to produce hair where it naturally would, such as on the scalp, face, or other areas. SMP is a practical solution to partial or complete hair loss and offers alopecia sufferers a way to regain confidence and get their life back on track.
The technique is a non-surgical procedure that can be completed usually in only 3 to 4 sessions, although clients often see positive results after day 1. Using a micro-needle, an expert practitioner will carefully apply ink ‘dots’ between hair follicles on the scalp, precisely camouflaging areas of baldness. It is safe, pain-free, and provides excellent results for alopecia sufferers.
The most common types of alopecia
- Alopecia Areata - Tends to occur as hair loss in patches across the scalp. Typical reasons include stress or autoimmune disorders. - Androgenetic Alopecia - A hereditary form of alopecia affecting both men and women. It usually manifests prior to the age of 40. - Traction Alopecia - Develops because of stress on the scalp due to excessive hair pulling, often a result of years of wearing complex hairstyles. - Alopecia Totalis - This type of alopecia results in the complete loss of hair on the scalp, eventually leading to total baldness. - Alopecia Universalis - Results in the complete loss of hair, eyebrows, eyelashes, and all hair on other areas of the body.
SMP for scarring or hair transplant scars
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a revolutionary treatment for people looking to hide the appearance of scars on the scalp. Using this proven method, patches of hair loss, either from surgeries or previous hair transplants, can be effectively concealed.
Results can be achieved after only a single session, although most people tend to require 3 to 4 visits. The SMP practitioner will expertly apply the micropigments between the hair follicles, camouflaging the presence of scarring on the skin. The use of a micro-needle ensures maximum precision, making the entire procedure almost entirely pain-free.
