Scalp micropigmentation for long hair is a viable solution to people suffering with patches of thinning hair.

A lack of hair density can happen for a myriad of different reasons & to both women and men alike. Androgenetic Alopecia or pattern baldness is one of the main culprits & and exists in over half of the male population under 50 years of age and approximately half of the female population over 50 years of age. However, those age ranges are very rough figures. Sadly, hair thinning can hit at some really tender ages, particularly in men, with some suffering the beginning of this unfortunate experience as young as late teens. The emotional anxiety attached to hair loss is devastating and understandably overwhelming. And let’s be honest, there’s either little or no psychological preparation in advance.

But where there’s misfortune there’s invariably fortune to be found. For anyone suffering to the hands of hair loss the light at the end of the tunnel for adding hair density is, without doubt, Scalp Micropigmentation. Also known as SMP, it’s a relatively new procedure that’s begun with a boom and doesn’t look likely to stop. But what is Scalp Micropigmentation & how does it work?

What Is Scalp Micropigmentation For Long Hair?

In essence, SMP is a tattooing procedure where tiny dots of pigment are implanted into the Dermal layer of skin which traps the pigments underneath the Epidermis layer producing an indelible mark. The pigments used in the procedure are natural & precision is taken to ensure the depth of the implant is adhered to. Given the nature of SMP treatments and accuracy involved, technicians training is stringent. Each practitioner will be highly qualified and ongoing training is constant to enable them to remain current in the ever-evolving techniques and technologies of this innovative procedure.

The beauty of SMP is that it’s suited to almost all types of skin physiology and colorings & is a cosmetic procedure that’s instant. However, when it broaches the subject of adding density there are criteria that deem it more suited to certain candidates over others. Scalp Micropigmentation particularly lends itself to female pattern baldness. The reasons are down to the nature of the loss. Women’s pattern baldness has a tendency towards a separation of the parting or crown instead of the hairline itself that recedes. In men, pattern baldness attacks the hair line itself. However, it’s not a lost cause on the early stages of male pattern baldness albeit crucial to have a carefully planned procedure which takes into account a probable or possible evolution of the said hairline.
