Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is an innovative technique used to combat the appearance of hair thinning and loss. Developed in the early 2000s, it offers a non-invasive cosmetic solution to baldness. Throughout their lives, many people will experience hair loss in one form or another. You may have heard of microblading, which in recent years has become a very popular treatment for those seeking to making their eyebrows appear fuller and more defined. Scalp micropigmentation has a similar principle to microblading, but is instead used to create the appearance of a thicker head of hair. It provides a very effective treatment for both those suffering from hair loss or thinning, and complete baldness.
In order to achieve this, pigment is implanted into the scalp using an electrical tattooing device. This creates the appearance of a healthy, natural-looking head of hair. It is performed manually by an experienced specialist practitioner, who will support the client throughout the journey from consultation to treatment. The implantation of natural pigments into the scalp creates a shadow effect, giving the appearance of shaven hair. For those with complete baldness, this provides the appearance of a full, shaven head of hair. For those with some hair loss or thinning, the shadow effect gives the appearance of a thicker head of hair.
Men and women suffering from a variety of conditions stand to benefit from the treatment. These include: alopecia, male and female pattern baldness, hair thinning, receding hairline, female hair loss, hair transplant scarring, and hair loss resulting from medical treatment. If you suffer from any of these conditions, do not hesitate to contact the Scalp Micro Pigmentation Company Luton to begin the journey to regaining confidence in your hair!
The treatment is performed using an electrical tattooing device by the SMP technicians from Luton. However, scalp micropigmentation is not the same as a head tattoo. A smaller needle is used than a standard tattooing needle, producing more refined, natural looking results than could be achieved otherwise. The style of pigment implantation achieved is known as pointillism, and is designed to ensure the most natural-looking and defined results possible. The needle also does not penetrate the scalp as deeply as a normal tattoo would, making it a much less painful process. This also means there is very little risk of scarring, which is a major issue associated with hair transplants.
Before the procedure is carried out, a topical numbing agent is applied to the scalp to ensure the patient experiences as little discomfort as possible. Three sessions of treatment are required, each taking between 2-3 hours. Following each session, the patient will be required to take a series of measures to protect the scalp. These include: avoiding swimming and activities involving exposure to steam (such as saunas and very hot showers), and ensuring the scalp is protected from exposure to the sun, such as by wearing a hat and sunscreen. It is also necessary to avoid heavy exercise in the days immediately following the treatment and to ensure that the scalp is regularly moisturised. All of these aftercare measures will be outlined by the practitioner as part of the treatment package.
Hair loss of any kind can be emotionally traumatic, and has been linked to various psychological issues including a loss of self-esteem, depression and anxiety, among others. In our society, having a full, healthy head of hair is often associated with youth, health, and beauty. The extent of the problem is so great that hair loss has been shown to negatively impact upon relationships, socialising, and work-life, as some sufferers lose the confidence necessary to flourish in these areas. This can make the loss of hair feel particularly difficult, leading many to seek expensive and potentially harmful remedies, such as hair transplants.
Scalp micropigmentation offers a much less expensive and invasive alternative. Unlike with a hair transplant, the recipient of the treatment can expect very little interference to their everyday life during and after the treatment. Many people who do get hair transplants are left with scarring which results from cuts made into the scalp. With scalp micropigmentation, this is not an issue. It is a popular option to cover the appearance of these scars for those who have had hair transplants.
Scalp micropigmentation is designed to closely match the appearance of real hair, and the treatment does not take a one size fits all approach. The colour of the pigment can be easily altered to match the hair colour of each individual. Unlike regular tattoos, the pigment used does not fade over time, which ensures one set of treatments is enough for long lasting results. Natural changes to the shape and colour of the hair are common with aging. Scalp micropigmentation treatment can easily be altered or freshened up to accommodate these changes if necessary.
