Are You a Candidate for Scalp Micropigmentation?
As an advanced method of cosmic pigmentation, scalp micropigmentation (SMP) may be an appropriate treatment method for many different people currently going through hair loss or who have experienced it in the past. Whether you’re overwhelmed with the different hair loss treatment options available or discouraged with failed attempts at remedying hair loss in the past, scalp micropigmentation can be the solution for receding hairlines, balding around the crown, or even hair related to disease and medical treatment.
Determining whether or not you’re a good candidate for scalp micropigmentation depends significantly on your specific circumstances and type of hair loss, so it’s important to schedule a consultation with a scalp micropigmentation specialist at Hairline Ink. Some common reasons clients seek treatment include:
Cancer treatment or disease – For victims of cancer who have undergone chemotherapy and radiation treatment, or individuals suffering from alopecia areata and alopecia totalis.
Scarring from past transplants – While scalp micropigmentation is an entirely different procedure, it can sometimes complement hair transplant surgery by concealing and hiding any scars in the donor areas of the scalp.
Complete hair loss – One of the most common reasons clients seek SMP is due to complete hair loss or men with the horseshoe-shaped Norwood 6 pattern. In these circumstances, SMP can provide people with the appearance of a shaved head of hair.
For the longest time, scalp micropigmentation only worked for clients with dark hair and wasn’t an appropriate solution for blondes, redheads, or those with gray and white hair. Fortunately, that’s no longer the case thanks to advanced methods and pigment colors. That being said, certain skin conditions may prevent you from receiving treatment. Because of the needles and exposure to pigment, scalp micropigmentation can irritate the scalp of those with eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.
At Hairline Ink, we go into extensive detail about your medical history and any physical conditions like the ones mentioned above to determine if this is the right course of action for you. If you are considering scalp micropigmentation and have questions or concerns about whether you are a qualified candidate, get in touch with us right away and schedule a consultation by calling (585) 250-0835.
