Who Can Benefit from Scalp Micropigmentation?
If you’ve been researching treatments for hair loss, you’ve probably come across the term “scalp micropigmentation” (commonly abbreviated as SMP). This procedure, which involves injecting tiny amounts of pigment into your scalp, won’t help your hair grow back. However, it will help you manage hair-related cosmetic issues and feel more confident with yourself. Anyone can benefit from SMP, but it’s especially helpful for those who:
Have a receding hairline
Male pattern hair loss, which is also called MPHL or male pattern baldness, can affect anyone regardless of age, ethnicity, and socio-economic background. It usually affects the top and front portion of the scalp so, if you have this condition, you might notice that your hairline is receding and that your forehead has become wider than normal.
There are a few medications that can halt MPHL and even help the scalp grow new hair, but many patients often don’t regain a full head of hair. You can wear wigs and weaves to disguise your hair loss but, if you don’t want to deal with the hassle, consider getting SMP to recreate your natural hairline.
Have thinning hair
Hair can naturally thin out due to advancing age, but you can also experience hair thinning due to anemia, thyroid disease, protein deficiencies, vitamin deficiencies, and many other factors. Regardless of the cause, though, you can get your confidence back through SMP. The pigmentation will darken your scalp and create the illusion that you have thick hair.
Have alopecia areata
Alopecia areata is a type of autoimmune disease which causes your immune system to view your hair follicles as foreign bodies and subsequently attacks them, leading to loss of hair. This condition often leaves patients with smooth, round bald patches, but it can also result to complete hair loss on the scalp and the rest of the body. Many people with alopecia areata regain hair after a few months, but you can also get SMP treatments while waiting for your natural hair to regrow.
