Scalp Micropigmentation For Alopecia

Albeit alopecia is an umbrella term for hair loss, when we hear the word we tend to associate it with a particular type. 

The correct terminology for this debilitating condition is Alopecia Areata and is also known as spot or patch baldness. The distinct characteristics of the condition are where coin-sized discs of hair loss appear in one or more zones across the scalp. 

The said patches can appear literally overnight and can disappear as quickly as they came. Some cases of alopecia are more severe than others, some experience minor patch balding which vanishes and never returns. 

But for long-term sufferers, one of it’s other defining characteristics is the devastating impact it can have on the person’s life.

Scalp Micropigmentation for alopecia is a hand in glove solution. Depending on the severity and nature of patch shifting, the pigment is implanted into the scalp in either the offending zones or across the scalp in its entirety.

 It is an originative treatment that is truly paving the way for a life full of renewed confidence and self-esteem for anyone experiencing alopecia.

What Is Alopecia?

Alopecia is a condition that is characterized by patches of hair loss across the scalp. As a general rule of thumb, we lose around 50 to 100 hairs on our heads each day. Most of the time we don’t notice them. 

However, if patches of hair loss begin to form, it’s a different matter. The patches that determine alopecia are usually around the size of a small coin. 

For the majority of people, it’s just a few patches that can be disguised by their own hair. Yet for a large number of others, it’s certainly not the case with more extreme cases leading to complete loss of hair on the scalp.

This debilitating condition occurs when there is a shrinkage of hair follicles which slow down the production of hair growth. 

This happens when white blood cells in the body will attack the cells which can be found in hair follicles. Little is known as to why this happens but common beliefs are that genetics are heavily involved in the process. 

The condition is neither age or gender-biased, it can happen to any person at any time in their life.

Treatment For Alopecia

Scalp micropigmentation and alopecia are words that go hand-in-hand. For generations, people have been searching for a solution to this debilitating condition and there are dozens of products that are available to try. 

But there are serious downsides to them, in that they’re either invasive, uncomfortable or expensive – and not guaranteed to work. 

The beauty behind the not so secret scalp micropigmentation treatment is it’s not a procedure that promotes hair growth. 

It masks the devastation alopecia leaves behind and also proudly boasts the label of guaranteed to provide results.

Scalp micropigmentation, or SMP, is a contemporary aesthetics procedure that is non-invasive. 

It works by a technician implanting natural and specialized pigments into the scalp using a microneedle. These pigments are implanted in a series of dots that mimic hair follicles. The result is to provide shading sitting under the hair which blends the discrepancy caused by alopecia.

Your questions answered about scalp micropigmentation

I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have, please drop me an email or call me

Is scalp micropigmentation the same as a tattoo?

In short yes, it is the same as a tattoo, however it has subtle differences.  i.e the technique, needles that are used and the depth we implant the ink.

Does it hurt?

Minimal pain is felt during SMP. Most say 3/10 in comparison to a traditional tattoo. However, everybody’s pain threshold is different. We advise clients to have eaten and drunk well on the day of the treatment. Further information can be found on our pre-treatment forms.

Does the treatment fade or discolour?

Over time (2-5 years) the treatment will naturally fade down, at this point a touch up is recommended. We only use carbon based black pigments so you can be sure the impressions will not turn blue in colour.

How long will it last?

Our treatment will usually last anywhere between 2-5 years before any touch up is required. The touch up is a quicker procedure in comparison to your initial treatment. Please enquire regarding prices on touch ups.

Will it look real?

Scalp micropigmentation will give you the illusion of that 5 o’clock shadow/buzz cut look. Through training with some of the best artist in the world rest assured that our finish is undetectable.

How long does it take?

Our treatment times generally last from 2-4 hours depending on the condition of the scalp and the area that needs covering.

How long will the redness last?

Everybody’s skin type is slightly different but we usually say 24-72 hours. Please follow post treatment guidelines.
