Scalp Tattoo For Hair Loss

January 1, 2016

The latest treatment for men and women treating hair loss is Scalp Tattoo – also known as Scalp Micro-pigmentation. This revolutionary treatment is helping many people with scalp conditions or hair loss look like they once again have a full head of hair. The treatment can be used two ways. Firstly, for guys who have a shaved or razor shaved head, the Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) is used to replicate where the follicles once were so the appearance of a full head of stubble hair is created.

Secondly the Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) can be used for both men and women with long hair as a scalp camouflage treatment. Many people are familiar with hair building fibers to thicken the hair and disguise the white scalp – SMP is a more permanent version of using these hair building fibers. It doesn’t exactly replace them, instead it reduces the contrast between the hair and the white scalp so it blends as one, creating the illusion of a thicker head of hair. Hair fibers can still be used when sprinkled onto the hairs for thickness but less can be used as there will be no need to use them directly down on the scalp.

Scalp Micropigmentaion is also commonly used to treat alopecia – a great camouflage technique to disguise the white hairless patch of skin against the surrounding hair. In the video below, you can see how tiny small follicles are tattoo onto the scalp to help reducing this contrast.

Lastly and commonly, SMP is used to camouflage scarring to the scalp. Scars on the scalp for surgery or an accident can leave noticeable white patches as no hair grows through the scar tissue. By replicating follicles onto the scar tissue, we can easily blend and camouflage the hairless scar so that it not noticeable upon inspection. Here is an example of my work showing how I used the replicated follicles to disguise the scar tissue from previous hair transplant surgery performed overseas.
