If you have been given the news that you have FPHL – Female Pattern Hair Loss or Alopecia, Scalp MicroPigmentation can help.
Female pattern baldness is generally permanent hair loss with limited treatment options, and while some medications, lifestyle and food choices can help, most turn to camouflaging.
Female Pattern Hair Loss affects one in three woman, Hair loss can occur in women for reasons other than female pattern baldness, including the following:
- Temporary shedding of hair that may occur after surgery, pregnancy or after a major illness (telogen effluvium)
- Breaking of hair (from such things as styling treatments and twisting or pulling of hair)
- Patchy areas of total hair loss (alopecia areata – an immune disorder causing temporary hair loss)
- After chemotherapy and from some other medications
- Certain skin conditions
- Hormonal imbalance (excess testosterone or thyroid hormone imbalance)
- Iron or vitamin deficiency
- Diseases like diabetes or lupus
If you are after a simple camouflage option, Scalp MicroPigmentation can certainly help create the illusion of a fuller head of hair.
Scalp MicroPigmentation is here if you need it – it is a permanent camouflage for the scalp so that you don’t see through to the skin colour beneath the thinning hair.
The typical pattern of female pattern baldness is different from that of male pattern baldness. The hair thins all over the head, but the frontal hairline is maintained. There may be a moderate loss of hair on the crown, but this rarely progresses to total or near baldness as it may in men.
The high contrast between a dark hair and a light scalp below is the most obvious combination. We can treat white hair, blonde as well as brown and black by reducing this contrast with layering pigment on the scalp therefore reducing the light scalp colour showing through the hair. If you have used hair thickening fibers or coloured hair spray before then this can give the same illusion only permanent if these are placed down on the scalp. Some ladies will colour their hair leaving the tint or colour to stain their skin – if this sounds like you, the Scalp MicroPigmentaiton is a more permanent treatment for this style of result.
