Scalp Micropigmentation is a popular Hair Loss Treatment for Alopecia – Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA). Alopecia affects both men and women and is characterised by hair loss in a distinctive and reproducible pattern from the scalp. Local and systemic androgens transform large terminal follicles into smaller vellus-like ones. Diffused hair thinning and increased hair shedding precede the appearance of baldness by a number of years This is because the follicular miniaturization of AGA does not simultaneously affect follicles within a follicular  unit. Instead, there is a hierarchy of follicular miniaturization with a follicular unit’s secondary follicles affected initially and primary follicles miniaturized last. Once all follicules are affected, there may be need for camouflage techniques to hide patches of missing hair if this becomes self conscious. Camouflaging with scalp micropigmentation ink using a tattooing like treatment, the ink is placed to look like tiny hair follicles blending the light scalp. Some clients with large areas of patchy hair choose to shave their head to disguise the hair loss. This is the perfect canvas for SMP technique to blend, camouflage and hide hair loss. Scalp Micropigmentaion is also commonly used to treat alopecia – a great camouflage technique to disguise the white hairless patch of skin ag

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 hai

Interested in Scalp Micro Pigmentation for a hair loss solution but want to keep your hair long? While this procedure may not be suitable for all with long hair, it is suitable for the right candidate. The best candidate for this variation of the process are those with intact hairlines with diffused thinning. Having overall thinning hair or hair loss can be helped by Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) by giving the illusion of a denser head of hair. For this to be successful, there should be decent coverage of hair in the crown area. Pigmentation can be applied to cover the entire upper scalp and the result will be the appearance of restored hair density making this a ideal permanent hair loss solution. Due to the fact that shaving the head in not always essential for Scalp Micro Pigmentation, this type of treatment is also suitable and ideal for women suffering with female pattern baldness, telogen effluvium or general hair thinning. For those with substantial loss of hair around their crown, sides or frontal hairline, this procedure is not suitable to keep the hair long but can certainly be an excellent candidate if the hair is shaved. Contact SMP Adelaide for a consultation to discuss your hair loss concerns.
